Have a pizza party. Each guest gets to make her own pizza.
Have a book swap. Each girl brings 2-3 books to exchange.
Play games with balloons, all kids like them.

Good luck and have a good time. (04/09/2009)

It really depends on the age of the girls. Have your daughter help pick a theme.

My daughters have had movie nights where everyone brought a favorite movie and then they drew titles out of a hat to see which they watched first, (fewer hurt feelings if someones movie didn't get picked first) pizza, pop, and popcorn were the menu. Some kids brought candy.

We have had a "spa party" for 12-13 year olds and did simple manicure/pedicures. We went to Dollar Tree and got pumice stones and nail files (so everyone had their own) and they soaked and scrubbed their feet. We have an assortment of scented lotions. The girls took turns painting nails. I already had an assortment of polish. They did basic facials and played with makeup. We served fruit smoothies and sparkling water in stemmed glasses and finger food with fancy tooth picks. The girls were hilarious trying to act grown up. They even ended up playing dress up and making some "unique" outfits that had everyone in the house laughing at the impromptu fashion show.

I have 3 girls (the youngest is 12) and would say that in my experience the groups always find a way to entertain themselves, Rather than boredom, I have found there is usually at least one squabble and someone's feelings get hurt, but they recover quickly. So try to plan group activities that don't leave someone out, and don't worry if things don't go perfectly. Don't stress about planning to entertain them every minute. My girls and their "herd" always ended up wanting to push me and the rest of the family out of the family room for their party. I think I was just there to provide beverages and snacks and occasionally referee.

And being the mean mom that I am, the next morning, the family room had to be restored to the pre-party condition and everyone had to help. The guests were always willing and were better at cleaning than my daughters. But that was always a condition of the party planning. (04/09/2009)

I've found that simple crafting projects are a great sleepover activity that also double as party favors for the guests to take home. Personalization to party gifts is always a hit. (06/10/2009)
