My seven year old is having a sleep over this weekend for her 7th birthday. We have food (pizza, chicken nuggets, and cake), Karaoke, and a movie planned. Any suggestions on a good movie for bedtime for this age group, or any suggestions for filling in the night. Party from 5:00 until bedtime (hopefully, about 11:00 :) )?

How fun!! How many children are staying over? I had thought of doing a slumber party this year for dd's 8th bday in August. Have you seen the new movie out Flicka? My dd loves it and just spent some of her own money buying the DVD. Another of her favorites is Eight Below. If you haven't seen it yet the movie Over the Hedge, it

I have boys, but I've actually found that sleepovers are the easiest parties to have--next to the expensive all inclusive ones at a skating rink or sports gym.

When the boys have sleepovers, we'll make pizza and snacks (fries, popcorn, chips), and usually have an ice cream cake. They normally will set up some sort of video game or board game tournament, and then I'll let them pick out some movies. The kids honestly figure out what to do, and my sons will roll their eyes if I suggest too many activities. So I just monitor the party and make sure that everything is going well, and that everyone is fed, happy, and more or less behaving. We have some old cartoons on DVD (Tom And Jerry, old animated Spiderman, Flintstones, etc.), and the kids really will get into those as well as recent movies. Sorry, I'm sure that boys' tastes in movies/DVDs is a lot different from girls'.
