Host a Slumber Party That's Anything but a Snooze
Psst! Here's one of the secret things that make sleepovers so exciting: No one actually wants to go to bed. I mean, who wants to sleep when there's so much fun to be had? Add Z-shaped chocolate cookies, easy-to-assemble canvas tents, starry-night decorations, and DIY sleep masks as party favors, and you've got more than enough reasons to stay up all night.
Let the Games Begin
As your pint-size guests gather in for the night, keep them playing happily with a game of flashlight tag, polka-dot party bingo, or swap scary stories.
Pass the Popcorn
Let's get this party poppin'! Play a movie and let them get their hands sticky on these sweet-and-salty toffee-almond popcorn balls.
Swap Friendship Bracelets
Who doesn't remember knotting these macrame trinkets for a BFF? Offer them a rainbow array of colored threads from which they pick and choose their favorites, then show them how to make (and exchange) friendship bracelets.
Time for Tea Sandwiches
Anyone up for a midnight snack? These fairy-tale-inspired sandwiches are made with moon-shaped cutouts and layered with briny olive-caper butter and smoked salmon for an endearing take on bagels and lox. Paper stars atop toothpicks add an extra touch of whimsy to the nocturnal theme.

3-D Glitter Stars
