Make sure yours is the fun kind. To complete this How-To you will need: A parent’s help A guest list Invitations Extra pillows, blankets, and toothbrushes Food and beverages DVDs Beauty and hair products Jewelry-making kits Music Step 1: Plan the guest list Sit down with a parent several weeks in advance and discuss the guest list. Four to six girls is usually a good number. Tip: Generally speaking, it’s more fun to have a few good friends spend the night than a lot of guests who may not get along. Step 2: Spread the word Invite people—by written invitation, email, or word-of-mouth—at least four weeks in advance. Tip: Include in your invitation what the guests need to bring—their own pillow, a sleeping bag, a blanket, etc. Step 3: Make a list With your parent’s help, figure out everything you’ll need for the party, from snacks and beverages (pizza is always popular and easy) to paper goods and decorations to breakfast items for the next morning. Tip: Buy a few inexpensive pillows and some extra toothbrushes to have on hand. Step 4: Plan some activities Think about fun things
