everybody always does the clip game. you get those old timey wooden clothes pins and give everybody 5 (or anything that will clip to clothing). Then if somebody says a choice word like, baby, shower, pregnant, etc whoever catches them steals a clip and whoever ends up with the most clips at the end of the shower gets a prize.....
That's always fun. I ALWAYS lose all my clips. lol
Yeah We do a similar game as to what Connie says except everyone gets a clothes pin...(we got a pack at a party store) everyone received one when they arrived and the magic word was baby. It was a forbidden word....If you heard someone say it you could take their pin. At the end of the game...whoever had the most won a small prize!
another game is the Yarn Game...Take a roll of yarn (color depending on gender) and pass it around with a pair of scissors and the person would try to guess how much yarn it would take to go around the mother to be...and cut their piece. After everyone had their pieces in hand the mother to be would walk around and let everyone put it around her...whoever the closest wins!
another idea is the baby food game. We took like 8 jars of baby food...peeled the labels off and the only thing everyone could do is look at the jar, color, etc (NO SMELLING!!) then number a paper from 1-8 and whoever got the most correct wins!
another game is baby babble...Take words to do with a baby (eg. Stroller, Carseat, Bottle, Pacifier, Bassinet, Cradle, Swing, Blanket, etc) and mix those letters up...Make a list and print out enough copies prior to baby shower (also dont forget pencils/pens) then whoever could unscramble the words the fastest wins!!
Hmmm.....Another game is Baby Bingo. You can take blank bingo boards (printed on paper for everyone) and use the blank squares. Hand out to everyone and tell them to write in each square something they think the mother to be will receive at the shower. Then when she begins opening presents, they can X each one off. the first to get a straight line Bingo Wins!!!
Hope this helps some....sorry its so much mumbo jumbo!! Have fun...If you need any other help or advice just let me know!
there's some game they wanted to do at mine that has to do with diapers and a melted brownie...but I nixed it because I was still having morning sickness LOL.
the yarn game is fun and they actually sell novelty "guess the belly" measuring tape....and the clothes-pin game is fun unless you're me and you catch people saying the word but you're too quiet to speak up and claim your pin, lol.
Saw a really cute one where someone got tiny baby toys and froze them in dixie cups of water. And you give them to the guests and the first one to get the baby free of the ice screams my water broke and they win. Had never seen that one before and thought it was really cute.
I had my baby shower this weekend and I had different games and they were so much fun.
First game was called dress the baby. One person at the table had to volunteer to be the baby. The other people at the table had to take the toilet paper and make the cutest baby.by rapping the toilet paper around the volunteer.
Another game was similar to the newly wed game, My friend ask me and my husband questions and wrote our answers on cards. I had to guess his answers and he had to guess mine.
Another game was called winner takes all. My friend went around and asked people to put change or dollars in a jar and the person the guesses the amount of money in the jar takes all. The person that guessed the closes to the amount won a bottle of ALL detergant and I got the jar of money.
These are all GREAT ladies keep them coming I may have enough for another shower coming up !
Heres One I found:
Candy Bar or Baby Shower Dirty Diaper game - Place a melted candy bar or smear peanut butter in numbered disposable diapers. (I don't think I would waste diapers for this game. I suggest the baby doll diapers in the kids toy section if you play this game) have the guest guest what candy bar they got.
wow! will definitelty steal these fun ideas for showers coming up!lol
everyone was thanking me sister for not having baby shower games :)
why they are so much fun!
EHOPE i really like the Winner takes ALL game. Im definatly going to play that at my baby shower!
there was over 50ppl there so they are probably more fun with a smaller group of people
