    1 Stock up on food: If you are hosting stop by the grocery store and pick up some chips, candy, sodas, and if you are gonna bake buy the ingredients. If you are a guest offer to bring one of those things listed above.

    2 Go outside while it's still light: If you have little or no yard then skip this, but if you have a yard that could be played in, go for it. This may seem childish but getting outside with friends is actually really fun.

    3 Prank call: Prank calling can be fun and hilarious if you do it right. Don't laugh or giggle at all or the receiver will probably hang up. You can call gas stations, your friends or restaurants. Just remember that it's in good fun. Don't let it get out of hand

    4 Get a YouTube channel: Getting a YouTube channel for the people at the sleepover is quite entertaining. Make videos doing challenges(safe challenges, not "chubby bunny" or "the cinnamon challenge", but "the cotton ball challenge" or "post-it note challenge" instead). Make it private or public, whatever floats your boat.

    8 Watch a scary movie at midnight: If there are people that get scared easily at the sleepover then skip it(or if, lets say, half of the people didn't like scary movies and the others did then divide and do different things. Maybe the people who aren't watching could bake or draw or something)
