It’s that time of year again—back to school! Sharpened pencils, school buses, homework and, hopefully, cooler weather are coming to a theater near you. Before school starts and life gets even busier, throw a fun-filled slumber party. Here are five tips about how to host an epic sleepover.
1. Pick a theme
Your slumber party will be fun and unique, regardless of whether you have a theme, since no one is exactly the same as you and your friends. To make your party extra memorable though, you can pick one of many awesome themes. Some examples include a decade-theme sleepover, a campout, a Hawaiian or Luau-theme party and a sports-theme slumber party.

2. Play Fun Games
Put your hula hoop skills to the test and see who can hula hoop for the longest amount of time.
If you’re planning a camping theme slumber party, try the Mosquito Game. Give each player a sheet of dot stickers (preferably red!) that will represent mosquito bites. Throughout the evening, try to get rid of your stickers by giving the others players & mosquito bites! Do this by secretly placing stickers on other players. Be careful…if you are caught you have to keep your mosquito bite sticker. The first player to get rid of their stickers is the winner!
3. Enjoy a delicious, easy-to-make treat
To make indoor S’mores, all you have to do is place a marshmallow on a Girl Scout Cookie. Microwave for 10 seconds and then add a matching cookie on top. Lastly, allow the marshmallow to cool.
4. Get Crafty
Make super cute pillowcases following these five easy steps. First, prewash your pillowcase (ironing is optional). Then use a pencil to lightly write in bubble letters the words you want on your pillowcase such as “BFFs” or your name. Then use permanent or fabric markers to outline the letters. Fill in the letters with patterns and colors of your choosing. Lastly, heat-set your pillowcase in the dryer for 20 minutes.
5. Make The Memories Last
Collage pictures of you and your friends hanging out during the summer. Make a background with magazine pictures of your favorite things about summer such as sunglasses, the beach and frozen treats. This will be a fantastic memento for you and your friends to cherish the memories you all made—years later.
