to some, other than having punch, fun games are the most exciting part
of attending baby showers! It's true that playing a few well-chosen,
fun games will create energy and enthusiasm at baby showers (and at
most other parties). These party activities are a great way to get
people to mingle with one another and enjoy themselves, especially is
most don't know each other. We've listed several activities to serve as
a starting point for you.
Look at this list as an idea trigger. Think up new fun games
to play at your baby showers. Combine, adapt and enlarge upon these
baby shower games and come up with original ones everyone will love.
This is one of those fun games for side-splitting laughs at baby
showers. Fill three or four baby bottles with fruit juice or other
beverages. You should seal one of the nipples tight in advance (this is
done by over boiling it). Play nursery rhymes set to music or other
appropriate music - the group passes the bottles among themselves while
the music is on. Whoever's holding the bottles when the music stops
must compete to finish drinking from the bottle as fast as they can.
It's great fun to watch this - especially the guest who's trying to drink from the sealed bottle!
Fun games like this one involve the guests fully - so they're well
suited for baby showers. Get a couple of laundry baskets and place them
at two ends of a room. Fill up one with balloons. Each guest has to
pick up a balloon and set it between her knees / legs. Then she has to
carry it to the other basket and get it in - without using her hands!
She can jump over the second basket if she wants to drop it in. One
with the most balloons in wins. Truly funny game. Try it and see.
Cotton balls in bowls
Here's another of the fun games; it's been played at baby showers with
great results. Have a bag of cotton balls available, along with a bowl
and a large spoon. Blindfold each guest and seat them on a chair with
the cotton balls and bowl on a table before them. Spread out the cotton
balls around them, set a time limit (1-2 minutes) for them to get the
balls into the bowl using the big spoon. They can hold the bowl with
one hand, but should not tip it to bring the edge level with the table.
Advice for mommy
Distribute 3 X 5 cards to all guests. Have them write down one baby
related question on one side. Like 'What will you do when baby cries at
a wedding?" Take back the cards from everyone. This is where the fun
games part begins. Shuffle them well, re-distribute at random. Now ask
each one to write down the answer to their original question on the
reverse of the card. Take back the cards, read the question and answers
on each card aloud! You'll find many seriously funny combinations!
Ideal for baby showers.
What did she say?
Some fun games should be played only if mom-to-be does not get offended
by them - this is one such! When mommy's opening gifts, discreetly have
someone record everything she says. Once the gifts part gets over,
announce that whatever she said then was also what she said on the
night of conception! And read out her remarks! Think of what a simple
statement like "Ooh, it's so cute and lovely!" can mean in this light!
It's a great game for baby showers.
