sleepover themed court of awards?

Hello,

I am a brownie leader planning our last court of awards. I was thinking of doing

a sleep over theme ( without the actual sleeping over part)I thought it would be

fun to have the girls come to the meeting in their jammies, bring sleeping bag and

then do whatever you do at a sleep over. I need a good idea on how to display and

give out their awards. We did a pizza party for the first one and all the girls went

home with a huge pretend piece of pizza with their try its attached.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you

Laura

Sounds like fun!! How about making sleeping bags out of construction paper with their names on the outside, then when you open it up the badges are on the inside.

What about making each girl a pillow case with her name on it. You could either paint something on it, or let each girl paint on theirs or have all the girls sign each others.You can staple the patches and try-its to the case.

Darn! Tina stole my pillow-case idea - LOL! I might add that instead of stapling the awards to the pillow case, just slip them inside; less chance of putting a hole in the fabric that way.

Other ideas:

Set up an *obstacle course* for the girls to go through while they are in their sleeping bags. We did this and the girls had a blast! Just set up some tables to go under, chairs to go through or over, pillows to crawl around, etc. In fact, you might set this up so the girls are one end and you are at the other end of the course, and they have to go through it in order to get to you and accept their awards. It would be hysterical!

Have a curler relay race. Break the girls up into teams and race to put curlers in one victim's... er, I mean, girl's... hair, and then take them out again. First team done wins. I'm not sure how this relates to giving out awards, but it's fun anyway. Hmm, maybe you could pin the awards to the curlers?

Go to the Making Friends site and see if they have a pajama paper doll. You could attach the awards to the doll somehow.

If you could find some very inexpensive bedroom slippers for each girl, the awards could be stuffed down in inside them. (In fact, you can make slippers from flip flops - just glue some fuzzy/plushy fabric on the inside sole, and VOILA! Slippers!)

HTH and please let us know how it turns out.
