Classy Baby Shower Games and Ideas
A Baby Shower is a great opportunity to have fun with friends, and although the main reason for the party is to celebrate the arrival of the future baby, there's no need to spend the whole time gazing at the mother's baby bump!
In the following OneHowTo article we give you some original and classy ideas for different games and baby shower activities to make it a shower to remember.
If you like Quizzes, you could organize a special one for this special celebration. The only thing you need to do is prepare a series of questions - they could even be questions about the pregnant mother, as this celebration is all about her and her new child.
In this way, you will see which of your friends knows the new mother best!
Some ideal game ideas for a baby shower could be some classic and memorable childhood favorites - how about Chinese whispers for example? For those of you struggling to remember how to play, firstly everyone needs to sit n a circle. Next, the first person thinks up a short sentence or phrase which they must then whisper to the person next to them (why not make it about the baby mother?)
Once the phrase has traveled all the way around the circle, the new mother can share the message that arrived to her, and compare it to what was originally said. Be warned, its often very different from the original phrase, so the laughs are guaranteed.
Another fun game for a baby shower is Baby Picasso. This game is simple too - each person needs to be given a paper and pencil or pen. Then they need to shut their eyes and each one should attempt to draw a baby as best as they can.
If the drinks are flowing then one fun idea is to give a baby bottle to each of those present. Fill it with an appropriate liquid - be it beer, cider or even liquor (fruit juice only for anyone pregnant of course!) Then, on the word "go", everyone has to start drinking and finish their drink in the quickest time possible. First to finish wins!
Finally, we have another very entertaining game to suggest. It involves taking an empty bag and filling it with random household objects, or baby items if you prefer. After filling the bag you need to close it. Then the players need to put their hand in the bag, calling out the objects present but identifying them through touch alone... the more random the objects, the harder the game!
