Sleepover Ideas for Young Adults

Children enjoy having their friends come over to spend the night. Young adults, however, may not enjoy the same type of childish activities and games played at a typical sleepover. You can host a sleepover appropriate for young adults with a variety of activities that are suitable for this age.

Cooking Night

Host a cooking night at your sleepover. Use an Internet search engine, such as Good Housekeeping's Recipe Finder, and choose a theme for your cooking night. Ask each guest to plan a part of the meal and bring the ingredients to make that course. Assign the course to each guest before the party, but have each person assemble and food at your sleepover. When it comes time to eat, combine all the courses together and enjoy your creation as a group.

Create a Video Commercial

Children and adults enjoy making home movies, but create one that is of interest to young adults. Bring the group together and brainstorm a list of your favourite items. This might include sporting equipment, kitchen items or your favourite television show. Choose one thing from this list and write a commercial to advertise this product. Write a script and then videotape it using a digital video recorder. Give everyone at the sleepover a copy to take home. Depending on the age of your guests, be sure to obtain any parent permission necessary before videotaping the commercial.

Picture Frame

Make a picture frame so that guests have a token from your sleepover event. Purchase enough wooden frames so that every guest can make his own. Provide wood paints and stamps to use during the craft project. Purchase other sophisticated embellishments such as jewels and ribbon to place on the frame once the paint is dry. Take digital photographs of guests at the sleepover and print them using your home printer. Place one photo in the frame and allow your guest to take his frame home.

Volunteer Activity

Plan a volunteer activity to complete after the sleepover. Choose one local non-profit organisation and research volunteer opportunities such as fundraiser walks or office work. Select one activity and plan for everyone at the sleepover to attend the event. You may also use time at the sleepover to create group t-shrits to wear using your computer and inkjet transfer paper.
