I don’t think I could do a sleepover in a creepy house LOL The worst thing shoved in a backpack? Toothpaste that had been squeezed all out. It was the “sleepover” tube and by the time I saw it, it was fuzzy….ew!
I would not want to go to a sleepover in a creepy house. I’m not a fan of being scared or feeling uncomfortable LOL
I would spend the night in a creepy house, however both my girls take after their daddy, and would never do that. As for the worst thing found in a backpack, that would be my daughters lunch that she lost at school almost two weeks earlier and forgot to give it to me once it was found.
It would be awesome to have a sleepover in a creepy house because there would be no sleep! The worst thing I ever found stuffed in a backpack was a crunched up egg salad sandwich from a field trip complete with crunky, molded chocolate cake. Yuk!
I would never go camping in a spooky place.
I would definitely NOT want to have a sleepover in a creepy house! Yikes!
I most definitely would not like to sleep over in a creepy house. I don’t even like watching movies of others sleeping over in a creepy house!
I think it would be fun and adventurous to sleep in a creepy house, as long as, there are no spiders!
I would not have a sleepover in a creepy house. A spoiled peach was in the backpack.
I’d sleepover in a creepy house if there was a prize involved and if I had company, otherwise probably not. Thanks
No creepy sleepovers for me. Too chicken. In one of my children’s back packs I stuck my hand in and my fingers went into a lump of rotten banana. :). That was a very entry long time ago and think I was pretty lucky since I had 7 kids and back packs to go through.
I would NOT go to a sleepover in a creepy house! I’m already scared of my own shadow.
I probably found some very interesting things in my kids backpacks when they were younger, but nothing comes to mind right now.
No I wouldn’t want to go to a sleep over in a creepy house
No for me with a sleepover in a creepy house but I love to read about creepy things!!
I would not want to spend the night in a creepy house. My nephews on the other hand, would love to drag me to one. I am a teacher so finding things in backpacks that are strange is kinda normal for me. I have found all kinds of nasty food.
I would love to go for a sleepover in a creepy house – after it had been cleared by the team from Ghostbusters! I once found a no longer identifiable piece of fruit in our son’s backpack after he had been away for a week. Yuck!
I would NEVER sleep in a creepy house. I believe in spirits and evil.
nope I would not have a sleepover in a creepy house
Nope i would not have a sleepover in a creepy house. A note my girlfriend saying sorry she was for leaving me.
No sleepover like that. Have found a couple dead lizards in sons book bag.
The worst things I’ve found stuffed in a backpack are probably “treasures” that my daughter has found outside and left to rot in her backpack, but nothing too horrible yet!
Wouldn’t be interested in that type of sleepover. Never found anything unusual in a backpack.
I wouldn’t go to a creepy house. I found a old, smashed, moldy sandwich in my son’s backpack.
No, I don’t want to go to a sleepover in a creepy house, I’m afraid of my own shadow!
As long as my husband was with me – I could do the creepy house sleepover!
The worst thing I ever found in my daughter’s book bag was a molded sandwich 🙁
I am a big chicken and scaredy cat so I know I wouldn’t be able to sleep in a creepy house.
I could never sleep in a creepy house….NO WAY!!!
I have found stale food in a backpack…that is the worst!
I would NEVER want to go to a sleepover in a creepy house! The worst thing I ever found in a backpack was a big black bug!
The worst thing I ever found in a backpack was a KitKat candy bar. It had been in there forever, and was completely melted. The worst part? The wrapper was opened, because I had eaten half of it before I forgot about it. So, the chocolate was all over everything. Ew.
I would try a creepy house sleepover if I had my friend with me for support. Finding dirty underwear in one of the kids’ backpacks was gross. Crusty, nasty, gross.
Wouldn’t sleepover in a creepy house but reading about one sounds fun. Finding spoiled lunch in your backpack is gross.
I have never had a sleepover in a scary house, but my second son he has. He saw a ghost and would never sleep over at my brothers again

Sleepover in a creepy house is not for me!
Nope. Just knowing about the house where they celebrated All Hallow’s Eve and seemed to have “witch” activities was enough to keep me away from the house set further back from the road than most. My sister was friends with a girl who lived there.
If I went for a sleepover in a creepy house, I would not sleep. The worst thing I’ve found in a backpack is an old lunch.
I love all things scary, so I’d definitely do a slumber party in a creepy house. Would I make it through the night as an adult? Probably. As a child? Probably not…. 😉
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever found stuffed in a backpack? Nasty old cereal and part of a sandwich in my son’s backpack. Oh man it was disgusting! I threw the the backpack with nasty food in it right in the trash!!

Thank You for the great review and giveaway!
I would love to have a sleepover at a creepy house but not by myself, lol! I don’t think I’ve ever found anything strange in a backpack.
No sleepover for me in a creepy house! I would have when I was young, but now I have the risk of heart attack! Lol
No, I wouldn’t go to a sleepover in a creepy house.
No I wouldn’t stay in a scary house. I scare easily
I definitely would not want to go to a sleepover in a creepy house – I love to read about creepy, but please don’t make me experience it! My students would all say they would love it – but would they?
I would sleepover in a creepy house, especially if I had others with me.
I have found old food that smells and dirty socks.
No, I don’t think I could take part in a sleepover in a creepy house. Haven’t had the opportunity to search many backpacks but my 3 year old granddaughter usually has M&Ms and Cheerios in the bottom of hers.
Visit, yes. Sleepover, oh no!
I am pretty good about my backpack and cleaning out really bad stuff. From time to time, there may be an uneaten, wrapped, beatenup old granola bar from a hike, but that is about it.
I would love to have a scary sleepover. I’ve found some pretty bad stuff. Dirty underwear is the worse!
I most definitely would LOVE to sleepover in a creepy house, as long as my husband was along to protect me! lol… it sounds like a lot of fun:)
The worst thing I’ve found stuffed in a backpack was melted chocolate.. my son left a half eaten candy bar in his sports bag and set it next to the vent in his room… it was so gross and stained, I ended up having to throw it out.
A sleepover in a creepy house would be fun – as long as I’m not alone.
I would sleepover in a creepy house. Dirty, real dirty, weeks or months old dirty PE clothes were found in my daughters back pack.
