For this game, you will need a tray and about 20 to 25 small items that would be associated with a baby. For instance, you might choose socks, rattle, teething ring, baby book, thermometer, baby food jar, washcloth, diaper pins, piggy bank, spoon, and so on. With everyone sitting around a circle, pass tray with all items on it around room.
Once last person has had time to view all items, put tray out of sight. Then, go back to person that first viewed tray and see how many items he or she can name. Keep in mind that someone will need to keep track of each person’s guess with use of a check off list. That way, you will know person or persons that win.
Gifts could include something like scented candles, bath soaps, or boxed chocolates. Finally, after came is over, all items on tray are then presented to mother-to-be!
For Smell Game, you will take six different jars of baby food, each different. Put contents into plastic bowls so content is unknown. Next, each guest will sniff bowl and then make his or her guess as to flavor of food. The person that gets most right is winner. Again, small gifts would be great but not necessary.
With this game, you would hand each guest a clothespin as he or she arrives, asking that it be clipped some where on clothing. Since a pregnant woman has difficulty crossing her legs, focus of this game is that no guest can cross his or her legs throughout entire shower.
If a guest catches someone doing this, clothespin is taken away and added to that person’s clothing. At end of shower, person with most clothespins wins a small prize. A variation of this game is to ban word “baby” throughout baby shower.
