  • are they girlie girls? You can always do manicures and pedicures. Watch love stories (age appropriate of corse) or scary movies.

  • At this age I've found it works best to rent some movies, get some pizza and sweets and various snack food, give them some space where they can sprawl out, and leave them to their own devices (monitored from a distance at the least) It gives them time to gossip and just be little girls. I usually let them have run of the living room.

  • Let them do nails, movies, let them do party bags for the B-DAY party, order pizza,pop popcorn,the biggest problem, don't invade on them, I kept trying to offer my help, I had to learn the hard way,My daughter finally said,MOM PLEASE, WE ARE FINE !!!! I knew what that meant.

  • I would get disposable cameras for each kid (cuz they are pretty cheap at the dollar store), some nail polish (check out eyeslipsface.com for polish thats only $1), rent movies, pop popcorn, have cheese snacks, plenty of juice(like capri sun), slice a cucumber and get a cheap face mask, some sponge curlers(super cheap at the dollar store!!!) and let them have at it! give them lots of space to stretch out and maybe have pizza or spaghetti and meatballs for dinner since its cheap and filling (not to mention fun!). I used to LOVE sleepovers!

  • Ear plugs for the adults. LOL!!!!!!!! I serious, they get loud and screechy. Anyway, what about makeovers or someone to show the girls how to put makeup on so it looks natural. I like the camera idea.

  • I would see if they were interested in doing a fashion show, my daughter had a sleepover for her eleventh birthday and we dug out all my clothes and her clothes and her friends brought some clothes and we put on a fashion show. They loved it. Make sure to have a camera because the results are hilarious.

  • For dinner you could get individual pizza crusts (I use bagels) and have them make their own pizza. Just get tons of toppings and let them be creative. That way you each kid can make their own and no one feels out numbered because they don't want pepperoni and the other girls do. Plus they are super easy!
