We love planning parties with The Oriental Trading; they are our go to spot for summer fun. They have the most fun decorations at the best prices. So, have the best pool party ever for teens or tweens with these pool party activities, food, and fun decorating ideas with a pink and green flamingo theme. Enjoy!

My nephew has already moved into campus, so I wanted to send him a care package to spoil him. I wondered what to send and started looking at Pinterest for ideas. I wanted to think outside of the box and send items besides just food and treats.

Here is what he is getting for his first care package surprise box:
I decided to include the shaving supplies because a starving college student may forego shaving his beard for food. I want to help him always look his best. Since he is starting out his freshman year at Purdue, he has so many new things to remember! He may not get around to all of the comforts of home. So, when I stocked up for my daughter, I thought it would be a perfect time to grab some for his college care package.

    Essential Dorm Supplies for College Freshmen Girls: Checklist

    Dorm Supplies are Essential for College

    It's time for college students to go back to school. For College Freshmen, this will be a new experience. The list of dorm supplies to bring is daunting, but it is important to remember the simple things to help boost your confidence, the essentials, and the extra cash. Enjoy!


    The number one essential supply for college dorms is a well packed Shower Caddy. Even if you have to make a last minute run to Walmart before you get on campus, don't forget your caddy, and don't forget the flip flops! Flip-flops are a necessity to get back and forth to the shower. You may even want to wear them in the shower.

    The last time we traveled for a campus visit, we forgot our razor- not good! No one wants to feel self conscious about their stubbly legs or under arms when talking to department heads, or even worse, cute collegian tour guides. We think razors are an essential for Freshmen Girls.


    Off to campus with Schick Dorm Supplies for College Freshmen.

    This time, we are prepared with the Schick Hydro Silk for Women. Our legs feel soft and smooth with no nicks or scrapes! This definitely takes care of the stubble, and leaves you feeling confident. 


    Schick Hydro Silk Razor = Awesome Smooth Legs
    Schick Hydro Silk Razor = Smooth Legs and a confidence boost! 

    The Schick Hydro Silk for Women offers the following:
    • Five curve-sensing blades
    • Gives back moisture
    • Dermatologist tested
    • Comfortable grip that you can keep a hold of when using   (note: this is my personal opinion and not advertised by Schick)
    • Another added benefit (in my opinion) is it's a confidence builder, because your legs feel smooth and fresh.

    5 Best Sleepover Games and Activities for Teens
    5 Best Sleepover Games and Activities for Teens.




    plan a backwards birthday party
    Have all the guest wear all of their clothes backward.

    • Who's in the Bag?

    sleeping bag game:best sleepover activities
    Play, "Who's in the Bag?", at your next sleepover.

    Before the party, mark straws with the number of party guest minus

    one. On the last straw, write "it" with a Sharpie. Have each guest 

    choose a straw. Get everyone's sleeping bag and roll them out on 

    the floor in a large room. Send "it" into the bathroom or a closet.


    Now, everyone else climbs into a random sleeping bag (not their 

    own). Pull the bag over your heads so "it" cannot see who is who.


    When "it" comes back, he taps the foot of a bag and asks one question. 

    For example:  "What is your favorite color?"

    The person in the bag, disguises his voice to answer but answers truthfully.

    Now, "it" guesses who is in the bag. If he guesses wrong, he moves to the next bag. If he guesses right, the player gets to come out of the bag and watch the fun!

    Play continues until all player's identities are revealed.





    The guys from One Direction.
    The guys from One Direction.

    Before the party, find photos of cute guys. Make a Pinterest board

    just for the party. Pin as many cute guys as you can find, then pull 

    them up on the television screen with Chrome Cast. What would 

    you do with him? Make Out, Marry, or Dump?



    • Whip Cream Fingertips


    sleepover pranks
    Sleepover prank: place whipcream on a sleeping beauty's fingers, then tickle her nose.

    Put some whip cream on the fingers of the first one to fall asleep. 

    Unlike peanut butter, which is sticky and can be deadly if anyone 

    at the party has a peanut allergy, whip cream is an innocent 

    slumber party prank. Now, gently tickle sleeping beauty's face. 


    Watch what happens! For the record, I hate pranks. I'm opposed. 

    If you are the first one to fall asleep, you probably won't be a fan 

    of sleepover pranks either, so keep this in mind when choosing 

    activities for your party.



    • Cell Phone
    Play "Cell Phone", a sleepover game similar to 20 questions, but better!

    Gather the party guests and pick one to be "it". Send it to the 
    bathroom with loud music or headphones. Now, the rest of the 
    group chooses a noun for the game. 

    For example: Cat, Car, Flower, Food.

    Now, bring "it" back to guess the chosen word.

    "It" has to ask questions about the unknown word. So, she replaces 
    the unknown word with Cell Phone. She asks each player a 
    different question.

    For example: "Is the Cell Phone purple?" or "Does the Cell Phone 
    breathe?"

    Like Twenty Questions, the other players (in on the secret word),

    say yes or no until "it" gets the answer correct.


    The last player to answer the question before she guesses correctly

    becomes the next "it".

    15 Slumber Party Games and Activities for Teen Girls: Best Sleepover Ever

    15 Fun for Teen Girls Activities: A Sleepover, Slumber Birthday Party

    A teenage girl sleepover party with fun games, activities, and swag bags is the best slumber party ever! Don't just read these titles and think, been there done that. We've added a little twist to each birthday party activity.


    This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
    UPDATED for 2020 with BONUS BIRTHDAY ACTIVITIES.


    15 Slumber Party Games for Teen Girls: Best Sleepover Ever
    Slumber Party Sleepover Games and Activities for Teen Girls.



    1. Balloon Charades. Grabs some stationary and write down ideas for Charades. What are charades? How do you play charades? You know, when you act something out, pull on your ear for "sounds like", put two fingers in the air to signify two words, but you never speak. Yeah, that game. So, fold the paper up into skinny rectangles, slide it inside a balloon, blow it up, and use it as a party decoration. When you are ready to play charades give each guest a balloon. Have her pop it - sitting on it is the most fun, read it, and act it out for the other guests to guess. Super Fun!

    Yeah, you can do this with "Truth or Dare" too, but oh how I loathe Truth or Dare. Shouldn't it be called "Humiliation or Bullying?"




    Bonus Activity: Giant Cupcake Balloon for Party

    2. Sleeping Bag Switch. For this game, each girl brings a sleeping bag or sleeping pad to the party. To start the game, the girls unroll their bags and lay them out on the floor. Then, one girl goes out of the room and the remaining girls pick someone else's bag to hide in. The girl then returns and tries to guess who is who or who is where. You can also have only two girls switch, and see if she can tell who switched. Fun times!
    3. Crazy Makeovers. Time to pull out the make up, and let the girls give each other makeovers. No peeking until it is done. The beautician can choose to make a crazy makeover or a beautiful, glamorous one. The girl getting the makeup has to guess which type of makeover she got before the big reveal. 



    4. Spin the Nail Polish Bottle. Each girl takes a turn picking out a color and spinning the bottle. This works best on a table. Who ever the bottle points to when it finishes spinning paints a nail with that color. Then, she chooses the next color to spin. When everyone has 10 nails painted, take a picture and share them with your friends on Instagram. Make sure you have lots of color choices!

    Choose a variety of colors for Nail Polish Spin the Bottle game.


    5. Make your Own Glitter Body Scrub. Find small jars that seal tightly, fine glitter, (white is nice) coconut oil, (a wonderful moisturizer for the scrub) scented extract, and sugar or coarse salt. Sugar is best. Salt is great for exfoliating, but bad if it gets in your eyes. Choose an extract: Peppermint, Almond (my favorite) Coconut, or Vanilla. Add a few drops of extract to the sugar and glitter to make a paste. Now you have your own moisturizer and exfoliator. When purchasing coconut oil you want this kind, extra virgin coconut oil.

    6. Dress Up Divas. Go to a thrift shop and find evening gowns or formal wear and fancy heels the girls can use to dress up. Place the gowns in a large bag. Before you let the girls see the gowns, have them make blindfolds that double as beauty masks. Once everyone is blindfolded, have them choose a dress by touch alone. After they model the dresses, they can trade and have a fashion show or make up a reality show. Don't forget a full-length mirror.





    Make a sleeping mask or blindfold.
    For a blindfold or sleeping mask tutorial visit Henry Happened blog.

    7. Pillowcase Decorating Activity. Purchase pillowcases to decorate. Grab fabric makers, tacky glue, and ribbon. You can also find fun, iron on transfers to embellish. If you plan in advance, you can decorate a large gift bag for each guest. Load it up with all that Birthday Party Swag!



    8. Pillow Fight. A classic game. As part of the swag bag items, create mini-pillows. You can often find little pillows at the dollar store or use travel pillows. Decorate them as mentioned above. When it is time for bed, be a cool party host. Tell the girls to grab their mini-pillows. On your mark, set, pillow fight! Just watch out for the lamps :)

    Bonus Activity: Easy Colorful Cupcake Frosting
    Make this easy, colorful cupcake icing and decorate cakes or cookies with your friends! Share on Instagram or other social media with #cupcaketime Get the recipe here: Easy Cupcake Frosting.

    9. Flip Flop Decorating Activity. Find out the Flip Flop shoe sizes of each guest before the party. Get some yarn, baubles, Sharpie Markers, and cloth scraps. Decorate to your heart's desire. Toss them in that swag bag to take home.



    10. Cup Stacking. When you are buying party supplies, get some extra cups for the party guests to stack. Take turns to see who can get the most cups stacked in a minute or who has the most creative tower. Even better, everyone can start at the same time. This makes it more nerve wracking and chaotic! Hey, don't knock my tower down!


    Minute to Win it Games for a Birthday Party.
    Minute to Win it Games for a Birthday Party.

    11. Minute to Win it Games. Imagine the possibilities! Just like cup stacking, come up with several activities that can be completed in one minute. Everyone grab one of those cups. Set it in the middle of a table, grab a Ping Pong ball, and with only one bounce allowed, bounce the ball into the cup. Hurry! The clock is ticking. Tick Tock. You can also use the a cup to fill a bucket with water (use a colorful sand pail). 



    Bonus Activity: Toothpaste Slime
    Trick your friends with this toothpaste slime. You'll need 1 C. Blue Hair Gel, 1/2 C. Cornstarch, Water, Super Fine White Glitter.

    Slowly add water to 1/3 C. Cornstarch by the spoonful, stir until all is mixed well and becomes pour-able. Then, slowly stir cornstarch mixture into the hair gel. When it all has a thick toothpaste consistency, sprinkle in the super fine glitter. Voila! You have fake toothpaste. See if you can trick your parents with it. Of course, this toothpaste slime isn’t edible!! 


    Did you know real toothpaste isn’t edible either? You should always spit it out after brushing. Don’t forget to brush your teeth with real toothpaste every morning (even at a slumber party!) 

    Parents,  if you’ve got one of those kids, who doesn’t like to go to the dentist, ABC Children’s Dentistry offers more valuable tips to help you and your child when it comes to oral hygiene. Dental hygiene is something that should be taught at an early age. Why not make it fun?  Here’s a neat sensory toothpaste activity for preschoolers by Still Playing School.

    12. Dance Off. Time for the girls to get their dance moves on and have fun. This is great to play after the Dress up Diva game. She who dances the longest wins. Ha! You thought it was a game of skill. Nope. It is a game of "get them tired so they don't put your panties in the freezer!"  Sweet Dreams. What's that? You're dreaming of popsicles?


    13. Board Games. Don't think "bored" games. These board games are fun because each girl makes her own game to play or collaborate on one super, cool game. Cereal boxes, paper plates, and the white side of the wrapping paper are great ways to make a board. Paper plates make game spinners. Old, recycled business cards make excellent playing cards or game cards. Stickers are fun too. Fold paper and cut it into a cube pattern to make your own dice. Still boring? Take those balloons and fill them with game topics. For example, "Make a game about Rock Stars" or "Make a Mall Shopping Card Game" or "Make a game of questions." Let your imaginations run wild. This can be especially fun for preteens and tweens.




    14. Classic Board Games. Find out who your moguls are when you pull out the Monopoly game or start up the giggles with Trouble. But that's boring, right? Pass around a basket of accessories. Think grandma glasses, nerd spectacles, giant clip-on earrings, men's ties, satin gloves, and cowboy hats. Now, play those games in character with silly accents.

    15. Slurpin' for Worms. Gummy Worm Game Grab a bag of gummi worms or gummi bears and a can of whipped cream. Place the worms on a paper plate and cover them with the cream. It should look like a fake pie, you know, the kind you get in the face? Yeah, you might want to wear a raincoat for this one, and Mom might want to lay down a painting drop cloth. Players must keep their hands behind their backs at all times. Dive in. This is a great game for "Minute to Win It" too. Who can slurp up the most worms? Who can eat the most?
