So, I don’t know about you, but my girls have already been begging for their friends to come over for sleepovers, now that its Summer break and all. When they have friends over I usually try to have at least one thing to keep them occupied. Here are some ideas that I have done in the past that have been a big hit. 🙂
1. Pipe Cleaner Jewelry
I bought a bag of sparkly pipe cleaners in all different colors, at Walmart for a couple of bucks. My daughter Emma and I had tons of fun one-night creating crowns and rings, necklaces, bracelets, and whatever else we could think of. She is sporting her Princess crown here, and I have a flower headband.
2. DIY Take Home Tote Bags
The girls really loved this project. Again, Walmart has cheap canvas bags that come in sets of two, and then I purchased some iron-on transfer paper and printed whatever pictures the girls liked best from their sleepover. We then ironed them onto the bags and then I let the girls go crazy with fabric paint and decorations. One of my favorite slumber party projects. Ever.
3. Craft Masks
These are so easy and fun. All you need is paper plates, old magazines, some yarn for hair, and I used a paint stick for a handle. But really, just look around your house…most anything will work for decorations. You can read more about my mask project here.
4. Princess Wands
5. Fondant Fun
6. Party Table Cloth
I let them get super artsy on this one… I had a sleepover before my daughter’s birthday and I decided to let them in on the decorations. I bought a disposable fabric tablecloth from Walmart for a few dollars, and let them decorate their hearts out, with colors and stickers, etc. They all worked very hard on it, and the end result was SO cute. I didn’t have the heart to throw it away, so it is now folded up in our memory box. 🙂
