How to make slumber parties fun



PRETEEN GIRLS

Unlock the secrets to slumber party success in "Sleepover Fun" (Running Press, $9.95), a miniature hardcover "diary" with temporary tattoos, a "Truth or Dare" board game and a little flashlight inside.

There also is the Girls' Club guidebook with a party planner, snack recipes, decorating tips and a list of activities and games.

One option: flower fortunes. Ask each guest to bring a flower and see what each flower means according to folklore definitions.

A carnation supposedly means the bearer is full of love; a yellow chrysanthemum signals the bearer is upset, white shows honesty and red means she is in love; a daisy means innocence; a daffodil shows good manners; a hyacinth is a sign of fun; a gladiolus means good news is on the way; a white lily signals purity and a yellow lily means magic. A red rose is for love, pink is for everlasting love, gold means achievement, yellow is for jealousy and white is secrecy.
