Fun Games to Play at a Sleepover

Updated April 17, 2017

Sleepovers can be exciting parties for both young kids and teenagers. This is a time for kids to get together to share secrets, stay up late and play games that create memories for years to come. Sleepover games provide excitement and entertainment to enjoy throughout the night.

Foil Makeover

Divide the party members into two teams and give each team one or two rolls of aluminium foil. This is a chance for each girl to showcase her imagination by creating outfits from the foil. Make anything that comes to mind like dresses, tiaras, or even foil shoes. Use strings and rubber bands to help seal the foil together. At the end, have a fashion show and be sure to capture the fun in pictures.

Panic Word

Use index cards to write 100 random words. Divide into two teams seated across from each other and place the cards and timer between the teams. One player from team one chooses a card and must give clues to her team describing the word. The teammates have to guess the word before the timer sounds. If the team guesses correctly, it is worth one point. If not, the opposing team gets the point. Continue the game until all cards have been used.

Double Dressing

Six or more players form a circle with various clothing articles in the middle. Make sure the clothing can fit all the party goers like gloves, scarves, shirts or large trousers. Players take turns rolling two dice and pass the dice until someone rolls doubles. That person shouts doubles and has to quickly dress in an article of clothing before the next person gets a double roll. Once someone else gets a double, the player has to give the clothing to that player. The winner is the player who dresses in all the clothing first.

Who's Who in the Bag?

One player is "it" and leaves the room. The other players get into sleeping bags and completely cover up. "It" comes back into the room and taps a sleeping bag. She asks a question such as, "Who is your favourite band?" The player in the sleeping bag disguises her voice while "it" tries to guess who's in the bag. "It" can go to different sleeping bags asking questions until guessing correctly.
