BABY SHOWER GAMES
One of most fun aspects of a baby shower is games. By playing games, you make strangers feel more comfortable while having a great time. To make games a bit more competitive between guests, have some type of small prize for winner.
You will find quiet people that come out of their shells eager to win. The goal with each game is to get guests laughing and interacting with one another. What you want to avoid with baby shower games are those that take too long to explain or games that are difficult to figure out.
You will probably feel nervous about putting games together since obviously, you want them to be well received and a huge success. To help reduce level of stress, we have chosen games that are perfect for all baby showers, whether 10 people or 50!
The games in this section are those that have been around for a while and continue to add fun to any baby shower.
To get baby shower started, this is an excellent first game. Prior to start of shower, you will need to cut small triangles out of white paper (copy paper, white napkins, or even white felt work perfectly). On inside of one “diaper”, place a small amount of Dijon mustard (to resemble a newborn baby’s poo).
These triangles will then be folded into shape of a diaper by folding two of corners inward, allowing them to touch. Then, fold last corner from bottom up over two corners and pin them together with a very, small safety pin.
Once all diapers are assembled, place them in a basket. As each guest arrives, he or she would take a diaper and without looking on inside, pin it onto clothing. These diapers will be worn throughout party. While some of guests may understand game, others will have no idea. Your job is not to tell!
Once shower begins to wind down, have all guests open their diaper. The person who has dirty diaper is winner, receiving main door prize! Excellent options would include dinner for two at a nice restaurant, a full-spa treatment, or a movie package (two tickets, two popcorns, and two drinks).
