You are never too old for a good sleepover, and sometimes, the older you are, the more you might need the fun and relaxation a sleepover with your best friend brings!
These fun things to do at a sleepover with your best friend will help you create an incredible night in, and you won’t have to leave the house to have fun!
Enjoy the night in with some good old-fashioned fun, some pampering, and some good food!
Fun Things To Do At A Sleepover With Friends
Sushi is actually fairly easy to make at home.
You and your friend should stock up on some ingredients to make some simple sushi, and watch some tutorials on how to make sushi at home.
Not only is it a great way to learn a new skill in the kitchen, but you get to binge on sushi afterward too!
Build A Fort
Yes, you and your best friend should build a fort, no matter how old you are!
What could be better than placing some pillows and blankets around the living room, throwing in some fairy lights and music, and spending the night in a fort.
You can enjoy a movie in the fort on your laptop too!
Do Some Crafts
Set up some crafts for you and your best friend to do during the night.
This could be painting, jewelry making, or even cross-stitch.
There is nothing like sitting back with your best friend, creating some fun pieces, and just relaxing as best you can!
If you are in need of some serious relaxation, you could buy some spa products for you and your friend to use to pamper yourselves at home.
These could be face masks, scrubs, and some essential oils to set the mood.
Have some nail polish handy for mani and pedis too!

Only Eat Snack Foods
For when you do not want to think about making dinner, you could instead just have a huge spread of snack foods for you and your bestie to enjoy throughout the night.
When was the last time you just ate whatever you wanted, without having to think about planning a meal?
Some snacks to have are chocolate, cupcakes, potato chips, popcorn, cheese trays, fruit and veggies slices, pretzels, and whatever else you and your bestie love!
Make Some Cocktails
Many breweries and bars offer home cocktail kits that you can order and have delivered to your house.
You could order one of these, and you and your friend can learn how to make some delicious cocktails at home!
Alternatively, you can do some research beforehand, and go out and purchase the different ingredients you need to whip up some amazing cocktails.
Have A Movie Marathon
A sleepover with your best friend is the best excuse to have a movie marathon of all the rom-coms you could fit into the evening.
If rom-coms are not your thing, why not have some horror movies lined up, or try to get through as many Harry Potter movies as you can in one night!
Make sure to have popcorn and candies ready and waiting for the movie night, and set out some cushions and blankets on the floor to get more comfortable.
Make Onesies Mandatory
Having a sleepover with your best friend means you can be as comfortable as you want, and to do this, you should make onesies mandatory for the night.
This also makes for some cute photos for you to remember the night by!
Take The Fun Outside
If possible, set up an inflatable pool or slip ‘n slide outside if the weather is good!
You and your bestie can put on your swimsuits and enjoy the sun while it lasts, having some good old-fashioned fun in the water outside.
Make sure you have something to snack on at midnight by baking a cake together.
Choose a fun recipe to follow, and have some frosting and decorations on hand to make the cake as delicious as possible.
Not only does it give you something to do in the kitchen, but you get to enjoy the amazing cake afterward as well!
Have Pancakes For Breakfast
Sleepovers aren’t all just about nighttime, you need some good breakfast too!
Get some ready-made pancake mixture for you and your friend to whip up some pancakes the next morning.
Have some toppings to serve, such as syrup, honey, berries, cinnamon, lemon juice, and so on.
Have A Painting Party
Whether you and your friends are painters or newbies, setting up a painting station makes for a great night.
Buy some paper and some paints and choose a subject for you and your friend to take inspiration from.
Being with your best friend, there is no pressure to be the next greatest artist, and the two of you can just enjoy being creative together, no matter what the painting might look like.
Why not swap paintings at the end of the night to keep as a token of your friendship?
Would You Rather?
You might think that Would You Rather? is a game just for kids, but you would be wrong!
There are some hilarious, and difficult-to-answer, Would You Rather? questions on the internet, or you and your friend can come up with your own.
This is such fun, and is a great way to find out more about each other!
Make A Cheeseboard
To make the sleepover a little fancy, you and your bestie can bring items to make the perfect cheeseboard.
Pair this with some wine or cider and you have an amazing tray to snack off of during the night!
Binge Reality TV
Sometimes, binging reality TV with your best friend can be so therapeutic.
Try to find a reality show that will entertain you throughout the night, and just enjoy sitting back and watching other people on television with your best friend.
Don’t forget the popcorn and snacks to get you through it all!
Whether you choose cooking competitions or dating shows, reality TV is just so great to binge!
Do Pinterest/Youtube Challenges
There are so many fun and unique Pinterest and Youtube challenges out there!
One of my personal favorite challenges is a blind taste test! So much fun.
Make Mug Brownies
If you want something sweet but don’t want to make a mess in the kitchen with your girlfriends, a mug brownie is the perfect middle-ground.
A mug brownie is so fudgy and delicious! But best of all, it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.
Such a fun little dessert. Plus, if you add ice cream on top… oh my god!
Make Tie Dye T-Shirts
Talk about a throwback to middle school!
Tie dye t-shirts are a fun activity to do with friends and perfect for a sleepover.
You can even cut them into crop tops or perhaps make tie dye leggings. The world is your DIY oyster!
