Here are questions related to Sleepover Party Ideas for Boys.
My son is turning 6 and wants to have a sleepover with 2 of his close classmates. Any ideas on what they can do and how I can make it a super cool? It is his first sleepover.

Just having a sleepover is pretty exciting for these little guys. Having them all sleep in sleeping bags, like indoor camping would be neat. Have something they like for supper -- ask you son what his favorite stuff is. Little boys are easy to please. They might like to watch a movie in their sleeping bags.
You don't have to overplan for these guys. And be aware that you may have to take someone home before the night is over, if they have not slept over before. Some guys like the idea of a sleepover, but chicken out when it gets to be time to sleep.
I need help on an 8 yr old boy's birthday slumber party. His birthday is on New Years day?

My son turned 9 on the 28th and is having a slumber party this weekend. He's inviting a couple boys over and we're taking them to the 7pm session at the local roller rink to wear them out ($4 a kid w/ coupon), we'll do cake at home first so we don't have to pay for the party package. A movie rental is always a solid bet and he's begging for us to let him have a nerf war in the garage as someone finally gave him a nerf weapon (something we've refused to purchase). I'm not so sure about that idea.
I was also planning to let them decorate their own cupcakes with small amounts of candy I'm picking up from the bulk section at the market. Honestly, at his 8th party they spent all their time playing basketball with one of those basketball hoops that goes over the closet door instead of doing any of the activities we'd planned, go figure. We'd printed some bakugan pictures off the computer for them to color and such.
Eight year old boys are often into Pokemon. I had a friend do a Pokemon party that was a hit, if your son and friends already have cards anyway. You could setup a round-robin where they rotate who plays who and purchase a few of the booster packs so you have cards to put down as prizes (so no one looses their personal cards).
I am looking for some ideas for a Halloween sleepover for teenage boys. They are very hard to scare, they are 13 to 15 years old. I am thinking of having a seance and playing with a Ouiji Board - to contact the spirits (with some help from my husband to make things go bump in the night). Any ideas?

There are some wonderful older scary movies out there. The original "the Haunting" made in 1960 is in black and white and to this day bothers me when I watch it. Carnival of Souls was another one from back in the '60s. Sometimes getting an old Abbott & Costello-type film is funny. Kids today will go "awe, not a black and white, it won't be any good!" However, if they start with it and watch it, they'll soon find out that many of them are really quite good, and they'll surprise themselves by enjoying it. And the Abbott & Costello stuff is so corny, it's funny! My step-sons and I watched Face at the Window recently. One of the other boys' grandmother wouldn't watch it with us because she was scared to death when she watched it back in the '60s. However, when we watched it, it was so corny and "dorky" it was actually quite entertaining - not scary at all. The boys were fascinated with the story. The boys will get into that stuff - really. Maybe you can rent some Alfred Hitchcock movies, or the One Step Beyond series or even Twilight Zone series.
The idea of spaghetti and peeled grapes is a good one. Even if the kids know what it is, it's still funny. They like to think that they can outsmart you. Have your husband (out of sight) rig up some stuff to move with a fishing line while you're telling a scary story, or visaversa.
Usually at that age, boys will entertain themselves. They love to think that they're grown up though, so don't be offended if they do outsmart you. They'll appreciate your effort.

I have my 14th birthday coming up on September 3rd and I need some ideas for a really cool boy sleepover party. I am able to use a pool with a diving board, if that helps.
By Mom in Jupiter
So yeah, maybe that would work for you and since you have a diving board you could use that in some of the dares, but also you could just swim for part of it. Also, what I did is I had a make your own nacho and hot dog bar, which kinda filled us up because we had a lot of food. Also, we bought a lot of soda and got some horror movies and stuff to watch while we "went to sleep". Hope it helped dude, mine was a blast. (12/22/2008)

My son is having his birthday party at home this year and we are having 12 kids sleep over. For some kids this is the first time away from mom and dad. With regards to some parents, I want to build the parents' trust because I hardly know them. Any suggestions would be helpful. I just want my son's friends to have a good time and want to come back. The party is too early to go swimming because of the temperature.

I made a mistake years ago when my boys were young by not asking enough questions and discovered later they were left alone for about a half hour and the son of the house showed everybody the gun his parents kept in their bedroom, along with their Playboy mags. Live and learn! (03/21/2010)
