You don't want to wake up in the middle of the night (in winter) as an icicle. That would be unfortunate. Remember your blanket!

Stuffed Animals


Yes, I know you're saying: "Stuffed Animals? What do you think I am? Five" But I know you're thinking: "Oh no, I almost forgot Teddy!" Remember your stuffed animal!

Sentimental Objects

Clothes for the Next Day


It's quite embarrassing when you have to wear the same clothes two days in a row. Or your pajamas. Remember your clothes!

Camera/Video Recorder


If you and your friends are the kind of people who enjoy making videos or taking pictures, it would be pretty bad to forget. Don't forget your camera and/or video recorder!

If you read very often, your friend reads very often, you get bored while at a friend's house, or have trouble falling asleep, it is good to bring along a book. Unless you're not a book reading person... But if you are, remember your book!

Hair Brush


Bed head Is not normally a good thing. But if you don't care... So, remember your hair brush!

If you and your friend tend to get bored, you can bring a movie or game. Try to find ones that you know you will both enjoy. And make sure if you are bringing a movie, that they can play it at their house. For example, don't bring a DVD if they don't have a DVD player... So, remember to bring your movies and games!

Swimsuit - for summer and hot days


If your friend has a functioning pool in the summer, bring a swimsuit and towel so you can swim. Remember your swimsuit!

I'm not magic...

Please note that there may be things that you need that aren't on this list and maybe things that you don't need. Remember that I can't have everything perfect for every person. So think I through and decide what is missing and what you don't need.

      i am bringing to a sleepover that i am going to tonight:



      some floss (i hate the feeling of food in between my teeth)

      pajamas (tip: bring lightweight pjs so if you are cold you can just use extra blankets but if your hot you will be fine. Also don't wear pjs that are really flimsy because you don't want to be flashing your friends or the host's parents by accident!!!!!)

      slippers (i will take slocks, slipper socks)

      hair brush! (make sure your hair is washed and not all gross because you might be doing hair and you will be embarrassed if your hair is a greasy and grimy when the person is doing your hair)

      any toiletries you may need (i am not going to say any, its different for everyone)

      deodorant (if you need it, but everyone sweats so most people do. escpecially if you are doing something very active, you don't want to stink up the room your in when you finish)

      cellphone (if your parents make you. refrain from taking it if you don't have too. i absolutely HATE it when people's eyes at sleepovers are stuck to stupid screens: it's a waste of precious time and ruining it for everyone!)

      clothes for the next day (if you want. usually i just go home in my pjs)

      sleeping bag

      any other necessities i forgot to mention

      FLASHLIGHT!!! you need a flashlight!!!!!!!! bring it!!!!!


      look up "sardines sleepover game" or "snuggle bug sleepover game" on google

      crazy makeovers (washable make up please, its a waste of time and a pain to try taking of stain lipstick or whatever)

      look up "sleepover games" on google and go from there. sorry i don't have many specific games :(


      don't pressure anyone to dance or sing or tell a secret if they don't want to. with everyone tired because everyone is up so late, it will just end in tears.

      don't make anyone do anything they are uncomfortable with (i.e., changing in the same room as everyone else)

      don't put sharpie or marker on the first person to fall asleep's face. or put their hand in warm water. you can put whip cream on their face, just make sure it one get in their hair or on their sleeping bag

      HAVE FUN!!!!

      PS: don't stay up all night ;)
