She might get a few ideas while enjoying a good laugh. Maybe when time comes for her to actually deal with similar distractions. She will think back to baby games for baby showers at her party and be able to smile.
Other great baby games with an educational twist - both for mommy-to-be and baby-to-be - include birthday card or videotape advice activities. With birthday cards, each guest gets an age.It’s a good idea to start with age 10 or so. The baby shower guests then write a special message to baby. They write this message on a card that will be opened once child reaches age specified. Each baby shower guest should read her card aloud before sealing envelope.
Videotape advice requires a camcorder or digital video camera. However, if those are not available, it can also be done with a tape recorder. But that isn’t quite as nice. The baby shower guests simply each give words of advice to new mom. The hostess can guide baby shower guests as far as advice.
Possible ideas for your baby shower games are “When you’re feeling stressed, you should…..” or describing what to expect with different ages. Not only are these activities fun baby games for your baby shower guests, they will be cherished keepsakes for Mom to enjoy over years.
Instead of just rehashing same old baby games, try to bring in some creativity to provide more entertainment to your baby shower guests. And always think of why you’re all there – to celebrate birth of a child and help prepare a new mother.
