Star Slumber Party Crafts and Activities
Wish on a Star
Use a telescope or binoculars to view the stars
Before the party, check the internet for star charts to find out which stars you’ll be able to see the night of your party. Keep it handy so you’ll know what you are looking at when you gaze at the stars.
Make s’mores. If there is no campfire or fireplace, you can still make them in your microwave or over the kitchen stove.
Star Slumber Party Games
Flashlight Hunt - A great outside game to play in the dark with flashlights... Read details of how to add a flashlight hunt to your star slumber party
Fortune Teller Game - You’ll need four paper sacks. You’ll also need a pencil and 4 slips of paper per guest. On the 1st paper sack, write “Job”. On the 2nd paper sack, write “husband”. On the 3rd paper sack, write “city”. On the 4th paper sack, write “Number of children”. Then have each guest write something on a slip of paper for each sack and place the slip in the matching sack. Then, one at a time, draw a slip from each bag to read the fortune. One fortune might be “Lisa will have a job as a zookeeper, marry Rob, live in Paris, and have 9 children!” (The crazier the answers, the better! This can be played over and over)
Fortune Teller Game #2 - Draw a circle on a piece of paper by tracing a plate. With a pencil divide the circle into 6 sections. In the different sections, write one word in each, such as “Yes”, “No”, “Maybe”, “Probably”, “Ask Again” and “I’m not telling!”. Then, take turns asking a question and flipping a coin onto the paper to get your fortune!
Left Foot Art - Sit on the floor with no shoes and try to draw a star left foot.
Observation (variation of the game) - You’ll need a small star sticker for each person, along with something they can write on. Give each person their sticker and piece of paper. Have each player secretly hide their star sticker somewhere on themselves, but in plain sight. Then, have everyone go around and try to locate the stars by writing them down. Whoever has found all the stars first wins!
Once Upon a Time… - Sit in a circle and let the host tell a story. They’ll start with a sentence to get the story rolling. Then the next person in the circle will tell what happened next in one sentence. Go around the circle 3 times to complete the story! (with a small group you may want to go around the circle more times than that)!
Shadows - Use a flashlight to make shadows on the wall with your hands in the shapes of animals, faces, etc.
Pinata - Break open a star shaped pinata. All About Pinatas (including how to make your own!)
