31 Best Sleepover Games For Girls

1. Sleepover Ball Game

This game is an icebreaker and will help the new girls in the group get familiar with each other. All you have to do is dig in your garage to find big plastic balls and write questions on them using a marker. To make it more interesting, ask the girls to jot down the questions they want their friends to answer. The girls can toss the question balls at each other, keep answering them, and have a laugh riot.

Everyone loves pizzas, and what’s better than indulging in an activity that not only engages your girls but also feeds their little bellies. Keep the pizza dough handy for them to flatten it, sprinkle cheese, and spread marinara sauce over it. You can also have a ready assortment of olives, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes. Make sure they wear oven mitts while using the microwave for baking the pizzas.

Alternatively, you can keep cookie batter ready and bake during the sleepover with your friends with different toppings or sprinklers.

3. Treasure Hunt

Make the sleepover party fun for the girls with a treasure hunt or even a scavenger hunt at home. Set up clues for each player, or you can ask the girls to come up with a set of clues and then swap. Rhyming clues for small girls will add an extra quotient of fun. Hide the clues inside envelopes and reserve a gift for the one who is quick to solve the riddles and claim the treasure.

4. Photo Props

Teenage girls love to click selfies. You can get some party props such as hats, sunglasses, crowns, and funky accessories. The girls can create some fun props and print the images if they like. A photo booth for the slumber party will be greatly appreciated. If they are ambitious, they can use the props and create a short movie for entertainment.

5. Blindfold Makeovers

Traditional makeovers for girls are a thing of the past at slumber parties. Blindfold makeovers would be a delightful and entertaining idea. The girls can work in pairs and blindfold the person who is applying the makeup. The results of this makeover activity will make them burst into laughter.

Makeovers are incomplete without fancy nail art! You can also try recreating fancy nail art designs on each others’ nails and laugh at the imperfect designs!

If the girls want to stay up all night and savor nature’s beauty, why not make this an opportunity to learn something new. Place a telescope in your backyard, and the girls can spot planets, stars, and constellations and look up more facts about them later.

7. Watching Sunrise

Cross your fingers, hoping that the kids have had a wink of sleep beforehand. If they want to stretch their hours and you hear them giggling early morning, treat them to a beautiful sunrise.

8. Cupcake Frosting

No one can ever outgrow chocolate sauce, M&Ms, sprinkles, and frosting to decorate a cupcake. Have varieties of cupcake toppings and baked cupcakes ready for the girls to grow wild and unleash their creative side. This activity can lead to a sugar rush later. You can also substitute cupcakes with ice cream toppings.

9. Indoor Camping

Indoor camping can be an excellent sleepover game if you want to recreate the summer camp vibe. This activity will relieve any anxieties regarding mosquitoes and rough weather conditions. All you have to do is build blanket forts or indoor tents for the girls at home. Gather your card games, a torch for storytelling in the dark, and a water bottle for a game of truth or dare. If the kids are old enough, they can work their way through this by themselves. This game can be paired with some snacks and their favorite movies.

10. Making Fancy Popcorns

What’s better than to couple up a movie night with popcorns? The girls will love this idea. Try popcorns of different flavors, such as caramel, cheddar, bacon chocolate, creamery butter, and honey mustard, to make it more interesting.

In the ankle balloon stomp game, each player has a balloon tied to their ankle. They have to pop the balloon of the other players while protecting their balloon from getting stomped. Turn on the music and let the girls have some fun and entertainment.

16. Charades

Charades is an engaging and fun game to play at sleepovers as it involves a lot of guesswork and hilarious exchanges.

So, it’s time to hop into your acting shoes for a blast!

17. Pillow Fight

18. Emoji Bingo

Why stick to conventional bingo when you can add a twist of emojis to it? Get your hands on a few emoji bingo cards and begin the joy ride! The host has to announce emojis one by one and the players with the emojis on their cards have to mark it. The one who finishes a row first, shouts “Bingo”. The same goes for “four corners”, “full house” and other patterns.

19. Musical Chairs

It’s to add some musical touch to a sleepover with an exciting game of musical chairs. Arrange a few chairs in outside and inward placement (make sure the number of chairs is one less than the number of players). The host kicks in the musical feels and the players roam around swiftly. The moment the music stops, those who get back to their chairs, qualify for the next round. The series continues and the fun multiplies!

20. Pass & Talk Ball

This versatile activity can prove to be an entertaining game for everyone. Take a big ball with various questions/prompts written over it. The game starts with passing the ball to one another and background music. As the music stops, the one with the ball in hand has to answer the particular prompt that is facing them. The game continues and the conversations flourish!

21. Board Games

What could be better than spending your sleepover playing board games? Ludo, snakes and ladders, monopoly, scrabble, chess, and more! Pick any board game of your choice and enjoy a gala time!

23. Karaoke Night

Friends who sing together, slay together! To make your sleepover memories beautiful and fun, try setting up a karaoke session. Sing your heart out and let all your worries melt! These moments of frolic would surely be cherished forever.

A few possible questions could be- Would you rather be able to fly or stay invisible? Would you rather be able to go back to the past or head to the future? Would you rather stay awake for the whole day or sleep throughout? and more.

27. Mystery Taste Test

It’s time for some quick guesswork with the Mystery Taste Test! Keep a few food items handy such as mayonnaise, sodas, fruits, candies, and more.

This messy game is sure to create memorable moments and lots of laughter among all.

30. A Fun Uno Game

Uno always tops the list when it comes to selecting any card game for a sleepover as it’s endlessly customizable.
