Baby Shower Games
Baby showers are a great way to show your excitement and love for your expecting friend or couple. But after you send out your baby shower invitations and you sit down to plan your event it can sometimes be difficult to figure out how to fill the time during your baby shower other than with gifts or refreshments. Baby shower games are the perfect way to ensure that all of your guests quickly feel at home and comfortable as well as a great way to keep everyone busy and far from bored. Here are a few baby shower game ideas:
- Never say "Baby" - Materials: diaper pins or clothes pins, string or yarn. Each guest wears a necklace of string or yarn with 3-4 pins on the necklace. This game is played throughout the shower as anyone who says the word "baby" must give up one of their pins to whoever calls them out first. The one with the most pins at the end of the party wins a prize and all the pins go to the mother-to-be!
- Guess the Tummy Size - Materials: yarn or string and scissors. Each guest should measure out and cut a string that they think will fit perfectly around the mom-to-be's pregnant stomach. Whoever is the closest wins a prize!
- Name as Many Baby Things as You Can - Materials: pads of paper and pens. Each guest should write down as many baby items as they can think of within five minutes. The one with the most items gets a prize!
Baby shower games can truly make a shower memorable and fun! If you are worried about materials or ideas you can ask your guests via your baby shower invitations to bring materials or to call you with ideas. Remember that using materials for your games that can go home with the mother-to-be as keepsakes are often the best ideas of all.
