View Full Version : Tween Slumber Party- Recommendations for movie and games

11-05-2015, 11:12 AM
DD is having a sleepover this weekend for her 11th birthday. It is a smallish group of girls (~6) and we have some crafts lined up. I also have a book of "personality quizzes" for them to do. DD wants to watch a movie, but has no idea what. Any suggestions? I prefer to keep it G or PG (no PG-13), and DD tends to be a bit sensitive so something pretty mellow lol. What about any board party games- Any recommendations for this age group?

Maybe Pitch Perfect? I haven't seen the 2nd but we all love the first. Even if it's PG-13, it's mild and 11yos should be fine.

We've had success with:
Soul Surfer
Ever After
Princess Bride

These were super fun:http://www.amazon.com/Sleepover-Party-Libs-Roger-Price/dp/084312699X

And I think our girls were too young for these, but they have potential:

Apples to Apples might be a fun party game. Or Taboo?

My 10 year old daughter loves Teen Beach Movie and the sequel.
They like playing twister and having fashion shows.
Making pizza is also a fun activity/snack.

I agree with making their own pizzas. also Ice Cream Sundae bar is fun.

For movies, there is NO WAY I would allow Pitch Perfect. That is way too old IMO. 12YO dd likes Elf, National Treasure, Bedtime Stories, Sorcerer's Apprentice, NATM, and those girly teen movies they show on the Disney channel and sometimes on the Family channel (High School Musical, Zapped, Geek Charming, Descendants, Ice Princess). Also some of those sports underdog stories, The Rookie, Miracle, Mighty Ducks are good. We also like to watch some of those holiday hallmark movies that are streaming on netflix--just saw the Mistletones and DD loved it.

Just wanted to update for anyone searching in the future- they ended up watching Tomorrowland. Some other contenders were Matilda, Hotel Transylvania, Annie, and Yogi Bear.
