Baby shower ideas for a friend?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

A friend of mine is having a babyshower this weekend, and I've been asked to think of games to play. This is SO not my thing. I can do blessingway ceremonies and create meaningful moments, but I've never been great at silly. Any suggestions of things we could do that would be fun but not over the top? As weird as this is, I've actually never been to a baby shower, so I've never seen what others have done.

 

Thanks!

Bumping up to see if anyone has anything to share. Also, you might want to post in the general I'm Pregnant forum or in TAO. thumb.gif

Ok, I saw no one responded so I will just in case anyone else needs this info.. Things you can do:

guess the M&Ms in a bottle, closest guess wins the M&Ms.. Mom gets the bottles (of course won't work well for bfing moms, the showers I have done were all for moms returning to work shortly after the baby)

melt candy bars in diapers then people have to guess what bar is in what diaper

gift bingo,

blind fold and try to draw a baby

blind fold and try to guess what baby food you are eating

who can drink a bottle fastest

the safety pin game (no one can say a certain word, usually cute or baby, and if they do they lose their pin)

baby care relay (you can to "take care" of a baby doll, feed it, change it, rock it, dress it, bathe it etc.)

 

 

Not really games but fun

decorate onesies using stensils

the "advice jar" everyone write down some advice or good words for the mom and put it in a jar

get a frame and have everyone write a welcoming to the baby on the frame.. then the mom can frame a picture of the baby in it when the baby is born
