Things To Do At Sleepovers For Teens

The teen years are filled with new experiences, emotions, and challenges. A sleepover is just one of the many things that can make this time exciting and memorable for your kids.

But whether it's their first or fifth Sleepover, there are some important things to remember to ensure the experience is fun and safe for everyone involved.


Many people don't realize this, but one of the best things about sleepovers is that they allow you to get to know your friends better. You're not in school or at home where there's always something else, so take advantage of it.

Play Games

Games like charades and party games can be great ways to break the ice or have a good time with friends. They also allow you to bond over shared experiences and memories that develop over time as you play together more often.

Eat Some Snacks

If you're having a sleepover at someone's house, they might already have snacks for everyone to share (like chips or pretzels). If not, here are some ideas: cookies, candy bars, and popcorn balls.

Have A Movie Marathon

Sitting down with your friends and watching movies all night is always fun. You can either pick out one movie that everyone wants to see or let each person pick their favorite movie for the night. It is also a great way for everyone to get to know each other better.

Make Prank Calls

Prank calling is one of the most popular things to do when you're at a sleepover, especially if you have access to your friends' parents' phone numbers! You can call them and pretend something horrible has happened to their child in the middle of the night, or say something random like "please stop breathing" into the phone and hang up. The possibilities are endless.

Decorate Your Friend's Room

This one is always fun because it gives you an excuse to mess up your room in the process! It's always fun to decorate someone else's space with temporary stickers or markers—and they'll love it even more than if they did it themselves! Make sure you don't leave any permanent marks on anything important (like furniture) and don't use permanent markers on walls unless you know what color paint will cover it up.

Play Truth Or Dare

Truth or dare is another classic game that never gets old—especially if everyone is willing to share some of their deepest secrets.

You can even incorporate some of those embarrassing childhood.

Play Truth Or Dare

Have A Dance Party

Dance parties are another great way to spend time with friends—and there are many ways to make them even better! You can use Spotify playlists or get up on stage and dance around like nobody's watching (which is okay because everyone else is doing it, too!).

DIY Crafts

It is always a crowd-pleaser. If you want to avoid being crafty, try a craft store like Joann Fabrics or Michaels, which sells everything you need and can help you.

Make A Fort

The best thing about this activity is that it can be done in one or multiple rooms, depending on how many people are invited. If you have more than one room, have enough pillows to build a fort in each room.

Have A Pillow Fight.

It will allow everyone to release some tension and have fun! It's always a good idea to have someone else in charge of ensuring no one gets hurt during this activity.

Try Out New Beauty Products Together

If your friend has something she wants to try but doesn't want to spend money on, she can offer it up during the Sleepover so everyone can try it out.

Make Some Music

If you have musical instruments lying around, this is an excellent way to pass the time while keeping everyone entertained! If not, try making up songs using household items (like spoons). It can be hilarious and lots of fun! Or sing along to your favorite songs.

Make Funny Faces

You could even try making funny sounds while doing this too! It's always good for a laugh when everyone gets involved and tries different facial expressions and noises together. Sometimes, it can even become a competition between friends trying to be more creative than the others by making their faces look extra funny (or scary!).

Get Creative Together

Decorate your place with streamers and balloons, make crafts from old magazines, or write messages on each other's faces with markers (make sure they wash off!). These activities are perfect for kids because they don't require any special equipment or preparation; you only need your imagination.

Makeup, Hair & Nails

The best way to start a sleepover is by getting all dressed up! Have each girl bring her favorite makeup bag so they can put it on. You can also get them started with hair and nail polish, but let them finish the job themselves.

Have An Icebreaker Game.

This game could be like 'I Never,' or maybe even charades! Just make sure it will get people laughing and talking, so they can get to know each other better.

Make Food

If you're going to be staying up late, you're going to need some food! You could try making your pizza, cupcakes, or even breakfast for dinner! These are all great options that everyone will love.

Have A Scavenger Hunt

It is an awesome way to get everyone involved in the Sleepover fun, and it will help you find some new hiding places in your home that you never knew existed.

Have An Escape Room Adventure

Escape rooms are an awesome way to bond with friends while also having an exciting experience that will leave everyone feeling satisfied with their time together in one place. If this is your first time doing one, try looking online before booking anything.

Cons Of Sleepover

They believe these activities can lead to addiction later in life and cause psychological problems such as depression and anxiety disorders.

These people also worry about the safety of children and adults during these events because many teens are not fully developed yet physically or mentally, so they may not know how to handle themselves around others if something goes wrong (such as falling down stairs or tripping over furniture).

Things To Keep In Mind While Sleepover

When you're hosting a sleepover, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. If you want your guest to have a great time, then you need to consider these things:

  • What is the sleeping situation? Are there enough beds for everyone? Are there enough blankets, pillows, and sheets?
  • Is there anywhere to hang out besides the bedrooms? Is there a common space where everyone can gather and talk or watch TV? If not, consider setting up some living room space for them all to use during their stay.
  • What kind of food do they like? Make sure you have enough snacks on hand, so everyone is satisfied. You don't want anyone going hungry while they're staying with you.
  • Get enough sleep the night before so you'll be refreshed and ready to go when you wake up.
  • Make sure everyone knows what they should bring. It includes things like toothbrushes, pajamas, and snacks. You should also include an evening agenda, so everyone knows what bedtime is and what activities are planned for the next day.
  • Make sure your parents know about the Sleepover so they can help with any issues that might come up, and make sure you have everything you need.

Sleepover games For Teens

Sleepover games are a great way to get your friends together and have some fun, especially if you're looking for something that's not too hard on your parents.

The difference is that instead of asking yes/no questions like "Is it an animal?" or "Is it an object?" players ask questions like "Does this have four legs?" or "Does this start with the letter 'B'?" Whoever guesses correctly gets points.

5. Trivia

This game is great if you've got a group of people who like trivia games and are willing to think hard about random facts! Make sure everyone brings their phones so they can check answers on the spot—it'll make everything go faster and be more fun.

It will make them feel special since they will have something unique to share with their friends when they go back home after the sleepover session.

9. Zombie Escape Room

The zombie apocalypse is nigh, and you must escape. It's a fun game with a zombie twist! You're trapped in a building with zombies and have to find your way out. The objective of this game is to find clues, solve puzzles and unlock doors while evading the undead.

10. Ghost Hunt

It is fun for teens who love mystery and suspense (and ghosts). You're in an abandoned house with friends, trying to figure out what went wrong there. You'll get clues you find inside the house and then use those clues to figure out who did what in the past and why they did it.


Sleepovers are for kids—but not all kids! If you're an adult and want a sleepover, that's fine. If you're an adult who wants to have a sleepover with other adults, that's also fine! It's your life, and it belongs to you. Sleepovers don't have any rules except for "don't do anything illegal" (and maybe "don't burn down the house").


What Is The Perfect Time For a Sleepover?

The perfect time for a sleepover is when you're ready. You can have a sleepover whenever you want, but it's important to remember that sleepovers are a big deal. They should be special and exciting!

You Never Have One Before

If you've never had one, try inviting your friends to stay at your house and see how they react. Maybe they'll think it's too soon or not interesting enough, but if they say yes, go for it!

Friends Are Planning

If your friends are already used to having sleepovers at each other's houses, then ask them if you can join in next time. If they say yes, you don't need to worry about finding the perfect time for your Sleepover—you need to think of what kind of activities would be fun for everyone involved.

When You Feel Stressed,

It's also a good time to talk about things that bother you. If you're feeling stressed or anxious about something at home, it's nice to talk about it with someone who isn't in your family. That way, you don't have to worry about upsetting or making them uncomfortable if they don't know what's happening.

When You Can't Sleep

If you're having trouble falling asleep because of your worries, it's also helpful for a friend to listen while you try to explain what's going on so she can help calm your mind down and get some rest.


In conclusion, there are many things to do at sleepovers for teens. You can play games and have fun with your friends. You can also get ready for school by getting a good night's rest. Sleepovers are great ways to relax and have fun with your friends. They are also a great way to bond with your friends and make memories that will last forever.
