So it’s time to plan a baby shower!
Baby showers are lots of fun, but they can be stressful to organise particularly if you have not been to many before. One of the toughest parts can be working out suitable games to play. Games that are fun, but not too dorky can be tough to come by especially if the mom to be does not want alcohol involved!
To help you out, here are 5 games to play which are fun and sure to entertain and impress your guests.
- Don’t Say Baby!
Equipment: A cheap dummy on ribbon for each guest.
On arrival, each guest is given a dummy to wear around their neck. Whenever a guest says the word “baby” they have to give their dummy to the first person who calls them out on it. The winner is either the first person to collect all dummies or the person who has the most dummies at the end of the party.
If the person saying “baby” has multiple dummies, they only have to hand over 1.
- Guess The Price!
Equipment: Pictures of 5 baby items along with names and descriptions (you can print this from a site like Amazon). Note paper and pens for all guests. A prize.
Display the pictures and hand out the paper and pens. The guests then have to list the items from the cheapest to the most expensive. The person who gets the order the most correct wins!
- Guess The Baby Food
Equipment: A range of different baby food jars with the labels removed. Spoons. Paper and pens for all guests. A prize.
Each guest tastes each of the baby foods and writes down what each baby food is, for example, pear, pea, etc. The person who guesses the most right wins!
- Decorate The Cake
Equipment: Plain cup cakes, various decorations for the cakes such as icing, candy, etc
The best part about this game is that it also provides food for everyone! Each guest decorates their cup cake. The mom to be then picks her favourite. The guest that decorated that cake is the winner!
- Guess The Baby Items
Equipment: About 20 small baby items in a bag such as a dummy, baby spoon, teething gel, etc
Each guest gets 30 seconds with their hand in the baby bag. Once the time is up, they have to guess as many items that they can that were in the bag. The person who gets the most right wins!
Baby showers can be lots of fun! Hopefully using the suggestions above, you will host a fabulous baby shower. Also, don’t underestimate the importance of your venue. Good luck!
