Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do at a sleepover. You plan to go to someone’s house or for someone to come to yours. You go, or they come over. And then what? Don’t worry, I’m here to save you the time of sitting around and not knowing what to do.
This is 30 things you can do if the sleepover is at home. I’ll do another post on Friend Date Ideas sometime later. Anywayyy, let’s get into it!
Bake or Cook Together
Honestly, you can make anything. You could bake cookies or cupcakes. I know when my friend comes over, we usually make donuts in a donut maker (you can use a donut pan). You could cook dinner or breakfast together. Once me and my friend made spaghetti together, and it was so fun!
I know this may sound a little silly, but it’s fun. When my friend comes over or when I go to her house, we always go through our closets and wear each other’s clothes. I don’t know, it’s just fun to try on each other’s clothes and put outfits together. When my cousins came over, we used to get dressed up almost every night (even though we weren’t going anywhere, because it was like 1 or 2 in the morning.)
This one is easyyy. Just grab someone’s phone or all phones and take pictures. Silly pictures. Cute pictures. Just take pictures and have fun! You can take pictures in your PJ’s or in the clothes you dressed up in.
Build a Fort
This might also seem lame, but it’s not. Just get some big, long blankets and hang them up around the room any way you can. Then, y’all could put some pillows beneath the fort and sit in it. While sitting in the fort, y’all can use it to watch movies or whatever else.
This would be really fun, because you should all be comfortable with each other. I feel like singing songs with your friends is funnier and so much better when you can’t sing. I don’t know why, but there’s something hilarious about sounding like dying hyenas together.
Make a Handshake
This is a littleee bit lame, but it depends on what you guys come up with. Handshakes can be really cool if you come up with something that’s fun. If you’re stuck for ideas, you could look it up and I’m sure you’ll find some videos on YouTube.
You can play around with makeup. Or y’all could just do each other’s hair. Or y’all could do both. I’m not sure why makeovers are so fun, but they are. Even if you just sit in front of a mirror, brushing each other’s hair and talking. It’s just something relaxing about it.
I loveee pillow fights! They’ll have you laughing so much. There is a possibility that someone can get hurt. I remember once at my friend’s house we were hitting each other with pillows, and I was standing at the edge of her bed. She hit me with her pillow and I fell back and hit my head on her closet door. But it was still fun tho.
Y’all could honestly do this when you’re doing karaoke. Like, if you decide to just sing songs together instead of one at a time. Whenever me and my friend have a sleepover, we always dance. Sometimes we go on YouTube and we’ll learn a dance together. Or we’ll learn Tik Tok dances. Like when I went to her house a while ago, she taught me the “Fishing Pole, Reel It In” dance on Tik Tok.
As in Weird Food Combinations or Eat One Color Food All Day. Those challenges are really fun and I don’t know. It’s just fun, because you’re not doing it by yourself.
I know we’ve all seen the cute pictures of girls who do face masks with their boyfriend. Yes, it’s adorable. But friends can do it, too. After you all have the face mask on, y’all could take pictures! (Maybe post em if you want.)
This is definitely one of the most fun ones on the list. You can prank call restaurants or prank call some of your friend’s friends (people that won’t recognize your voice.) If you don’t know what to say when you prank call a friend, then you can look up some funny prank call sayings. What I do with restaurants is ask a stupid question first. For example, me and my friend called IHOP and I asked them if they make pancakes. Then, you could ask them if they deliver and ask them questions about types of food they have (basically pretending like you’re going to order.) Then, pause for a second (like you’re thinking) and go, “Nevermind. I’ll order something else, but thanks anyway.” And hang up.
This is literally when you talk about anything at all. Boys, school, drama, celebrities… ANYTHING! This is probably gonna be throughout the entire sleepover, because they’re your friends, so you’ll be talking a lot.
Three Truths and One Lie
If you don’t know how this game works, it’s where you all take turns. When it’s your turn, you say four statements. Three of the things you say will be true, like if your favorite color is blue, you’d say “My favorite color is blue.” One of the things you say will be a lie, like if you went to Miami on vacation over the summer, you could say “I went to Texas for vacation.” Typically, you don’t want it to be easy for them to guess the lie.
Truth or Dare
I’m sure everyone knows what this is. If you don’t know what to ask, you can look online and decide which ones to ask.
Would You Rather
Again, I’m sure everyone knows this game. Same thing as Truth or Dare, if you don’t have any good questions, you can look online or download the app.
Make Funny Videos
I’m pretty sure everyone makes funny videos at a sleepover. You can also make Tik Toks, go live, make YouTube videos like challenges or a vlog if someone has a YT channel.
Try Not to Laugh Challenge
If you can find a video that is actually funny, this challenge is really fun. Me and my friend found one video that was genuinely hilarious. We decided to do the challenge with water in our mouths, and it was veryyy messy. So if you do it with water, I advise using towels.
This could be anything. Making friendship bracelets, making anything together really. The last time I went to my friend’s house, we made lipgloss.
Hide and Seek
This is fun when there’s about 4 or more people at the sleepover, but it works with 3 people, too. Hide and Seek is a classic game that is fun to play, because of the thrill of someone trying to find you. Especially, if they walk right past your hiding place.
Of course, while you’re having fun it’s okay to take a break and just chill. Y’all can sit back in the bed or sleeping bags or whatever you’re gonna sleep on. Get on social media or even take a lil nap if you’re feeling tired.
Stack up on snacks!!! Everyone can bring snacks, it doesn’t have to be just one person’s responsibility. Y’all can eat snacks the whole time, it’s that type of night.
Tell Scary Stories
Telling scary stories is fun for the same reason scary movies are fun. It’s the thrill of being scared and not knowing what’s gonna happen next. An alternative would be watching a scary movie if nobody wants to tell scary stories.
Playing Twister is fun, and you can do this if you have the Twister sheet thingy. It’s extremely fun, especially if half of your body is underneath or above someone else. And falling is fun instead of hurtful (unless you fall in a weird way).
Watch Movies or Shows
Movies are so good to watch with your friends. Y’all can also binge watch a show together. Whenever I go to my friend’s house, we watch Grownish together. We usually watch movies that people talk a lot about on social media. Like, when Bird Box came out. We watched it together and then did the Bird Box Challenge after.
At sleepovers, we rarely ever sleep. Sometimes, sleep is what you need, but if you feel like you don’t need to sleep and the others feel that way too… PULL AN ALL NIGHTER!!! All nighters are actually really fun, but you get tired after 3 or 4 in the morning.
Play Card and Board Games
You can play Sorry, The Game of Life, Candyland… Any board game you have or that someone brings. If you have Uno or a deck of cards you could play Spades or any other card games y’all know.
Play Video Games
If you have a game console or y’all can all download the mobile app on your devices and play together. If you’re using a game console, obviously just take turns.
If you have a tent, you can put up a tent in your room or some other room in your house and if you tell your friends to bring sleeping bags, y’all can sleep in it. Y’all can also make smores and things like that.
If you have nail polish, y’all can give each other mani-pedis. If you have a lot of self care things, y’all can pamper yourselves and have a spa type thing going.
That’s all I have for this post! I’ll be doing a New School Tips post next, and plentyyy more!

Byeee, babes! Let me know down in the comments if you have any suggestions on what I should call y’all. (For now, I’ll stick with babes until I have something else. But since it did annoy some people, I won’t use it as much.)
