Sleepover Party

Rock Star Tween Girl Sleepover Birthday Party  -  For my soon-to-be 12 year old daughter's birthday, her sleepover guests will be rock stars. Our stars will be pampered at our spa night. Then they will undergo makeovers with makeup, hair, and accessories. Finally we will make music videos for all of the girls.

INVITATION  -  I used a graphics program to create a custom invitation. We used a swirly purple graphic and a butterfly. We sent the invite to be printed at the local CVS, printing them just like a photo. Normally I would just print them, but my printer is on the fritz. 

DECORATIONS   - There are instructions for tissue paper pom poms on the Martha Stewart site that are always pretty. We will also  be making some tie-dye coffee filter butterflies to hang. We will be cutting stars out of cardboard saved from boxes and covering them with tin foil.We do the usual dollar store decorations. It is amazing how you can transform a room with streamers. I always buy a disposable plastic tablecloth, even the well-behaved kids have a talent for making a mess.

PARTY SNACKS  - Main meal:Make your own quesadillas:cheese, salsa, sour cream, refried beans, guacamole, onions, peppers, chicken, pepperoni, mushrooms, meat. Precooked veggies = 350 deg 10 min (made with home made Mexican Rice, Black Bean Refried Beans). We are going to use food coloring to paint initials on these.Chocolate dipped_____:(home made Butter Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Marshmallows; pretzel sticks, potato chips, strawberries, pickles) Melt chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time in the microwave until they are melted. You can get away with cheap ones for a kid’s party. Add a tiny bit of shortening. Dip food items and put on waxed paper. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set. Some of these can be for snacking, some can be sent home with the goodie bags.Cucumber Tea Sandwiches, Apple Crisp w/ Whipped CreamNachos (home made Black Bean Refried Beans, Salsa)Whoopie Pies, Kettle Korn, Grapes, Ginger ale, Sprite, Frosty Fruity Sodas, Morning After Food:Home made Bagels (w/cream cheese)Homemade Pop Tarts, Waffles, Fruit, CAKE  -   Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (Homemade, you use a regular cookie dough but cook it in a pizza pan. )Cookie Dough Ice cream  

ACTIVITIES  -  Sprinkler, water balloons, Giant Bubbles (you can make giant bubble wands with string and sticks)Spa NightSeveral of the goodie bag favors are for the spa night. There are emery boards in there. There are headbands to hold hair back for the facial mask, and microfiber facial scrubbers to wash it off. There are socks to keep feet soft after the foot scrub.Hand and Foot Scrub (recipe online)Oatmeal and Yogurt Face Mask (recipe online)Nails, makeupThe girls can accessorize with hats, scarves, belts, skirts, jewelry, hair pieces. If your daughter doesn’t already have a large collection you can get some things at the dollar store, thrift store, and yard sales.Karaoke We will use the karaoke machine we have with several karaoke sites. You can use a computer microphone as well. Also Disney Sing It is available for PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and Wii.

Once they have done their spa night and makeovers we will make music videos. We will use my camera that takes video and the karaoke machine. The videos will be taken off the camera and emailed home if they like. Shy girls can do a group video so no one feels left out. You can run a contest with prizes for best video, best singing, best dance, best makeover, funniest video Netflix movies We will use the Wii to watch Netflix streaming movies. Some G and PG movie ideas are Alice in Wonderland, The Cheetah Girls, Emma, High School Musical, The Princess and the Frog, and Ponyo.

GAMES  -  Boardgames, Wii games, Truth or Dare,  using safe truth or dare questions for younger girls, He Said She Said (found this online) To play, sit all your guests in a circle. Each one should have a piece of paper and a pencil. At the top of the paper they write a girl’s name, then fold it over. Then they pass it to the person on their right, and write a boy’s name, then fold and pass. Then you write where they went, what he said, what she said, and an ending, passing the paper to the right in between each. But no peeking at what other people already wrote, or it won’t be as fun! In the end each guest will get to read their story out loud.  Creating Fashion Designs  Print out croquis/paper dolls off the internet and make designer outfits. Then vote on the best design, most creative, most colorful, most realistic, least realistic Be aware of the body image you are projecting with the croquis, many of them are downright unhealthy looking.

Piggies in a Blanket (found this online) One person, who is the ‘farmer’ goes out of the room. Then all the rest of the people hide in sleeping bags. When everyone is ready, the farmer comes back in, and sits on someone. They say, Piggy piggy! And the person has to disguise their voice and say oink oink! The farmer has to guess who they have caught. If they guess correctly, the piggy comes out of the sleeping bag and they are now the farmer. If the farmer is wrong, they are silent and the farmer tries again with someone else until they figure it out.Two Truths and a Lie (found this online) Have all guests write three statements, two of which are true and one of which is a lie, on a piece of paper. Guests should take turns reading the paper and having the group raise their hand when they hear the statement that they think is the lie.

Favor Bags  -  These favor bags cost me $4.06 each. Almost all of these items I got at the local dollar store. I wanted less candy and more real items. White lunch bags $0.04 eachGlow sticks 4 pack don’t open them until you’re ready to give them out (yes I learned this the hard way) $0.25 eachMicrofiber facial scrubbers 3 pack For facial scrubs $0.34 eachHeadbands 8 pack For facial scrubs $0.13 each, Ankle socks 3 pack,  For after foot soak $0.34 each, Emery board 4 pack $0.25 each, Pop rocks 3 pack $0.34 each, Ring pop 4 pack $0.25 each, Bread sticks and cheese dippers 5 pack $0.20 each, Poptarts 6 pack, have to bag individually $0.17 each.
