Hi, you don't need to plan much at all. I'd try to invite so there's an even number of girls (including your niece) & have a lot of food on hand. I'd stick with more pretzels, chips & bottled water (no pouring anything & if it gets knocked over, it's not as bad). If they have too many sweets, they'll be up forever

Re: Those that have 12-18 year old girls. Questions!

Thank you so much for everyone's input.

I plan on inviting four girls and going from there. She does have a mind her own so she will probably do all the planning. I just want them to have fun. Thanks again

Re: Those that have 12-18 year old girls. Questions!

My mom was the ultimate hostess when I was growing up...I had my friends over every weekend! Ask her what movies she wants to watch (or just take them to a movie store if there's one nearby), buy a TON of snacks, order some pizza and give them some nailpolish, face masks (the cheapy ones you get at like target) and some Teen Vogues/similar magazines. The key to a good sleepover is making sure that nothing bad (i.e. drugs/alcohol) is going on and then letting them be

Looks like you have it well under way. Personally I wouldn't let a group of girls walk alone to a park at night....I'm sure their parents assume you are in the house with them and they are not wandering the neighborhood. I know it sounds fun and I did that type of thing too without getting into much trouble at that age but to be safe (and also liability issues), they should be at home with you or you go with them.

Also, I would make sure your daughter isn't planning on harassing any of the girls that come. It starts out fun but then it turns into half of the girls staying up late and putting peanut butter on the other half. And then the next week at school, your daughter may have some girls (or parents) mad at her. It's funny only to the ones that get to harass the others.
