Top 10 Sleepover Party Themes

9 of 11

Christmas in July

Most children can't wait for Christmas in December, so why not celebrate it any time? Have each guest decorate his own stocking, and hang them up before going to bed. When everyone is sleeping, stuff each stocking with small toys and candy to take home as party favors.

Keep the food simple with food such as pizza for dinner. For dessert, supply cookies and milk, or, if your party is small, have the kids help you make a batch of cookies. Decorations can include green and red streamers and balloons, and winter-themed items such as fake snow, snowmen, and reindeer.
