    Tell your parents about your epic sleepover plan. If they explicitly don't agree, just act real good for a day or two, and then wait another day to ask them about the epic plan. They will probably agree.

    Stock up on movies. Depending on if your friends are allowed to watch PG-13 or not, jumble up on some romance movies or comedies. Horror movies would also be good if you aren't scared easily. If you can't find a movie that all of you want to watch, then find a movie that everyone doesn't like and comment on it, but only if your friends want to. You could also ask your friends to bring movies so that way everyone will have at least 1 movie that they want to watch. Just don't watch too many movies, since your friends might want to talk.

    Do fun make-overs! Borrow body lotion, gel, flat irons, eye shadow, foundation, mascara, lip-stain, every makeup on the planet! You can try doing one another's hair in beads or pick flowers outside to put in their hair. You may be allowed to spray their hair with temporary (and temporary only) hair dye of a fun color (confer with the parents first).

    Read the best fashion magazines out there. Try not to read magazines like "Glamour" or "Cosmopolitan" because the advice is for women and won't help you at all. Considering, 11 year old's don't need "50 Tips from Your Hot Boyfriend" in a magazine. While including boys, make up, fashion, body problems, and inspirational stories, try reading things like "Twist" (celebrity fans), "Quizfest"(getting to know your friends), "Girls Life" (for advice on everything and top fashion tips), "Seventeen" (for ideas on what to do on almost everything with fashion inspiration), or "Teen Vogue" (high fashion and celebrity fans).

    Do fun crafts, like making duct tape purses. Get the best prints ever, like leopard prints in pink or polka dots in raspberry red. You can try making collages from your favorite magazines and posting awesome articles on paper!

    Have a fashion show. Put each other in the cutest clothes (DIY some accessories is a must for crafts) and have them strut on the runway. Before the show, host a catwalk walking class and teach each other how to walk like real models.

    Play "Truth or Dare" or "Would You Rather...". It is a great way to know your friends and have a little girly, feisty fun on the way! In the meantime, keep things to the minimum (no saying, "I dare you to hop on your foot twice") and keep things to the maximum (no saying, "I dare you to take off your shirt") Keep things clean but fun!

Then, spray some whipped cream on to each plate, (you can add other toppings if you like)enough to cover the gummy worms and give to each guest (including yourself). once you all have one, have a race to see who can find their gummy worm first by sticking your face in to the whipped cream and grabbing the gummy worm with your mouth. It's a party game and a tasty snack!
