Default Help ~ 8 Year Old Daughter B-day Sleepover - Activities/Game ideas please...

I am planning on inviting immediate family over since they all live close and doing dinner, presents & cake. Then need some ideas for a girlie good time for the rest of the night.

Any ideas for activities or games?

Total of 6 girls (dd + 5 other girls all around same age)

Theme: Peace Sign
Color: Fluorescent Green

I know she wants to have their nails done. I have a friend that does glitter toe parties but still pricey so probably have to do it on our own. I got some free nail art from Joby that we could use.

Any suggestions for a movie too would be great?

I was thinking for the cake to make cupcakes and the just form them in the pattern of a peace sign (maybe regular size cupcakes for circle and then smaller ones for the lines inside?)
Today though I won this cupcake stand from Shindigz, so now might try to find fluorescent green peace cupcake toppers?

I will be making the invitations and found a super cute PEACE font to use. With wording something like attached.

Peace signs make me think Tye-Dye (t-shirts, bandanas or even pillowcases could be fun)

Face paint each other's faces. My kids love it! Micheal's and Hobby Lobby have small Snazaroo kits. They are in the kid craft section. Don't buy the other cheap stuff. Snazaroo is cosmetic grade the others are not. Non-toxic does not mean safe on skin. (I'm a pro face painter) Find a 40% coupon and it runs about $8 dollars.
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.

For those that have Tye Dyed before, what kinds of dyes did you use or recommend? I've seen some kits but reviews are not so good.

Glitter face painting can be good option. and pillow fight as game activity could be great.
