WHAT TO DO

The best sleepover games ever:

‘Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board’

Can four to five girls lift their friend using just two fingers each? Yes, they can! Without saying anything to each other, try to lift your friend – who is lying in the middle of the circle – with just two fingers. It probably won’t work. Then, chant the mystical incantation, ‘light as a feather, stiff as a board’. Now, you will be able to lift your friend with just two fingers – almost like they are levitating, or a spirit was lifting them up!

Truth or Dare

The premise is simple: ask someone to choose between answering a question truthfully, or completing a dare. Once they pick between the two choices, they will have to either answer a question (the more embarrassing, the better!) or do a dare.

Blindfolded Makeovers

Again, a very simple premise! Take turns putting on a blindfold and trying to give one of your friends a makeover – just try not to give the bed sheets, floor or walls a makeover at the same time.

Tell Your Future

Choose five choices for each of the following categories: ‘who you will marry’, ‘how many kids you will have’, ‘what your job will be’, ‘where you will live’ and ‘what car you will drive’. Have the person whose future is being told close their eyes while someone else draws a spiral on a piece of paper. When the person with their eyes closed says ‘STOP’, the person drawing the spiral counts how many lines there are to the centre of the spiral. As an example, if there are six lines, go through the options and cross off every sixth one. When you are left with only one option in a category, that will be the person’s future.

Sardines

This fun twist on hide and seek will really get you giggling! One person hides while the others search for them – when the hidden girl is found, the person who found them hides with them. You can bet that this will make for some pretty tight situations!
