    Watching children grow can be a wonderful experience for the parents. And guiding them in their delicate years can be very difficult and exciting also. It is in the early teens when children are in their most impressionable and involve in socializing a lot. This period of time involves maximum interaction with friends and partying out.


    Apart from the general meeting, special invitations are also made to exult the moment to a different high. Sleepover is one such idea in which teenagers rejoice. A sleepover is also known as a pajama party or a slumber party where teenagers mainly invite guests to stay overnight. It is usually a follow up of a birthday party. Teenagers stay overnight and play numerous games.


    Typical participant activities mainly include staying up late, talking, eating and playing until sleep beckons, which sometimes never happens for a few energetic guests. Teenage Sleepovers are usually held at one participant's house, with other guests bringing in bedtime things, such as pillows or sleeping bags.


    Some of the common activities include playing board games or watching movies, having pillow fights, cooking and eating themselves, playing Truth or Dare, building forts out of pillows and blankets. For girls a pajama party may be pampering themselves by applying nail polish and putting face masks or just experimenting dressing up. Sometimes, sleepovers can have a theme as well.
