It is fun to have have some crafts and slumber party activities at your girls sleepover.
No matter what craft you pick or what ideas you use, the important thing to remember is that it is best to have a craft or activity that your guests can design and do by themselves. You don't want to plan stuff that needs a lot of explanation or supervision.
It is much better to have a project that is "open ended" - you provide the idea, lots of supplies, and then let the girls do their own thing.
Depending on what crafts you provide, you may want to set up a craft table. Other times a craft can be done while laying around the floor watching a movie.
Some great ideas are:
Create Edible Crafts - Use refrigerated bread sticks dough to shape into letters, then bake!
Create Edible Jewelry - string Lifesavers, etc. on string or even onto string licorice!
Decorate Cupcakes - Need we say more?
Decorate a banner - Hang up a large piece of butcher paper (or lay it out on the floor if you have room) and let everyone decorate it.
Decorate Friendship Bracelets or Anklets - then trade with another guest.
Decorate Hats - create designs with paint!
Decorate and Sign Pillowcases - provide a pillowcase to each guest, have them decorate and then sign each other's case with waterproof markers. This is a really popular idea, especially for a first slumber party.
Decorate T-shirts - provide t-shirts and paint or waterproof markers so guests can decorate.
Craft with your Theme - Pick a craft that can go along with your theme. Such as, if you are having a Book Lover's Slumber Party, then make bookmarks!
