Sleep-Over Theme

Recommended for ages 10 - 14

Invitations

Arouse interest in your sleepover party with invitations featuring designs that include pillows, sleeping bags - and for girls - curlers, teddy bears, and diaries or video games, movies or sports equipment for boys.

Decorations

Use streamers, garlands, balloons, and a Happy Birthday sign to decorate the room that partygoers will be sleeping in. Arrange their sleeping bags in a circular starburst pattern, so that everyone’s heads are facing in towards the center of the circle. This makes it easier for guests to talk the night away! Make the room cozy by placing lots of plush toys around the room. For an element of drama and surprise, paste glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling -- and you’ll find guests asking for "lights out!"

Activities

The extended length of a sleepover party means there’s plenty of time for lots of fun activities. Set up a large pail of water and have partygoers bob for apples. Turn up the CD player and hold a dance contest; or turn down the CD player and have a karaoke contest. Before bedtime is beauty time, when hair gets curled and nail polish goes on. When lights go out, suggest your giggling guests tell ghost stories -- hopefully they won’t be able to keep their eyes open for much longer!

 

 

Snacks

Anything round will tie in with this party’s theme: a pizza pie, small wheels of cheese with Ritz crackers, Mallomar cookies, etc. Wheel out the snacks on a serving cart, and let the munching begin!

 

Cake

A rollerblading party calls for a cake in the shape of a rollerblade. Start out with a rectangular cake, then carefully cut it into the shape of the skate. Use licorice strings as ties, and line up miniature chocolate doughnuts along the bottom for the wheels. Then watch guests come skating ‘round for more!

 

Goody Bags

For the age group of this party, load goody bags with such items as sour candies; decorative pencils, erasers, and notepads; stickers and rubber stamps; and comic books. Place it all in paper bags decorated with drawings of rollerblading images created by your child.

 

Thank-you’s

Match your thank-you notes to your invitation, or choose a complementary design. Teach your child good manners by allowing him or her to sign their name to each note. Remember to mention what the gift was that you’re thanking the person for -- and how much your child enjoyed it!
