Try these fun games and activities at your next baby shower and it's sure to be a success! These games not only serve as an ice breaker among guests, but will have the entire party bonding and having a great time. They are fun, easy, and best of all they are inexpensive!
Guess Mommy's Tummy Size
For this game, all you will need is some ribbon or yarn and a pair of scissors. Have each guest guess how much yarn it will take to wrap around the mommy-to-be's tummy and cut it. After everybody has their cut piece of yarn, measure each piece around the tummy. The guest with the closest size yarn wins!
Guess the Baby Photo
This game involves some planning ahead. You will either need to email the guests and ask them to bring a baby photo of themselves or include it in the invitation. Once everyone arrives take the baby photo from them and hang it on the wall, along with a labeled number. Give each participant a pen and paper and allow them ten minutes to match the photo to the guest. The guest with the most right guesses wins!
My Baby Egg
For this game you will need to have hard boiled eggs prepared. Have enough eggs to give each guest one. Feel free to get creative and decorate the eggs. When the guests arrive pass the eggs out and explain to the guests that their egg is their responsibility for the evening and she must care for it as if it was a baby. At the end of the party tell each guest to turn in their egg in exchange for a party favor and see how many guests were able to keep track of their egg baby.
For baby bingo you will need pens and a bingo template, you can print the one above for free online from Parents. Fill the template with items from the gift registry and tell the guests to mark each item off as the mommy-to-be opens the gift. The guest with the first complete row checked off wins!
Remember the most important part of the event is to have fun. So sit back, relax, and let these games do the entertaining for you!
