Planning a baby shower is a lot of hard work! You have to make sure everything is perfect for friends and family. Most of us pick a theme and try and incorporate that throughout the whole baby shower. We even go as far as buying baby shower gifts to relate to the theme. There is food, decorations, an event hall, guest invitations, and yes don't forget the games. Games are a huge staple to any baby shower event.
Here are some really great baby shower games that is sure to create a fun-filled atmosphere!
Mum's the word when it comes to saying 'baby'! Get this great icebreaker started the moment your guests walk through the door. As you greet each guest, give each a diaper pin to wear on his or her shirt. Once all of your guests have arrived, tell everyone that they can't say 'baby' for the duration of the shower (or until it's time to open presents). If anyone hears someone else saying the forbidden word, he or she can steal the rule breaker's pin. At the end of the game, the person with the most pins wins a gift.
Keep guests guessing with this practical game. Put at least ten common, useful baby items inside a diaper bag: a bib, teething ring, rattle, bottle and diaper are just a few goodies that are also fairly inexpensive. Give each guest a pen and paper before passing the diaper bag around. Without looking, each person should stick a hand inside the bag and identify as many items as possible. Give each two minutes to feel around and make their guesses before moving the bag to the next person. Once everyone has had a turn, find out who had the most correct answers. The winner gets a prize and the parents-to-be get the diaper bag filled with baby essentials!
An icky dirty diaper is no one's friend-but what if the gooey center is actually candy? Funnily enough, it's still gross with this nutty baby shower game! Place several types of melted chocolate candies in newborn-sized diapers (or folded napkins). Make sure you have many types and consistencies represented: milky, creamy, nutty, caramel-filled, and the like. Pass the diapers around and have each person sniff and lick the gooey 'poo' centers in order to guess which brand of candy bar is in each diaper. The person with the best nose for chocolatey-tasting 'number two', wins!
If you've ever thought that baby food in jars looks less like the 'peas' or 'carrots' they purport to be and more like miscellaneous mush, this is the game for you. Gather seven to ten unique flavors of baby food jars, number each lid and tear off the labels. Ask each guest to grab a spoon and start sampling! The guest with the keenest taste buds wins a prize for getting the most correct.
ou'll have a roomful of amusingly anxious faux parents-to-be with this ice melter game. The night before your shower, freeze a bunch of ice cubes with tiny plastic babies in the center (available at any craft store). When guests arrive, drop an ice cube into a cup of water and present to each person. As time ticks by, the ice begins to melt and the baby is closer and closer to its due date! Whoever has a baby first, wins. Or, change it up by asking people to correctly guess how long it will take for their baby to be born.
Have a wonderful time playing these awesome baby shower games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
