Some Games To Play At The Baby Shower
Babies can be so much fun, just as they should be. However baby games at the baby shower are even more fun because moms-to-be, godparents, grandparents, and every one else at baby shower can get to play childish games again. Some of the games that can be played include Sing It, Baby, Measuring up Mommy, Here's Looking at You, Kid!, Don't Say Baby, Baby Truth or Dare, and Dig out the Pins.
These particular baby games are fairly common and are a great way to get the guests to mingle and get to know each other, if they aren't acquainted yet. This is also a great way to give the mom-to-be her rightful place as “mom-to-be-in-honor”.
Here's a quick run down in how to play these baby shower games, and help make your shower really memorable and enjoyable.
In Sing It, Baby!, the guests form themselves into a circle, either sitting or standing. Then, each of the guests sings a line or two from a song that has the word “baby" in it. When the first player has stopped singing the next person on her right has ten seconds to sing another “baby" song. “Baby" songs are not allowed to be repeated, and, anyone who repeats a song or cannot come up with a different “baby" song gets kicked out of the game. The last person still singing in the baby game wins the prize!
The question is, just how large has mom become? Measuring Up Mommy is the baby shower game to play to get the answer. Strangely enough, a couple of toilet paper rolls are required for this game! It is played by getting each participant to guess the pregnant size of mommy's girth and tearing the toilet paper to the length of the size they have guessed. In turn each one wraps around the new mommy's stomach the length of toilet paper they tore off the roll. The one who has the closest length approximating to the mommy's stomach wins the prize!
This is a good one. Do you remember seeing how you looked when you were a baby? This game really takes you down memory lane as you have to drag out those baby pictures of yours and you need them to play the baby shower game Here's Lookin’ At You, Kid! When you arrange the party itself you request that all the guests bring the cutest (or otherwise) baby picture of themselves. When they arrive on the day, procure the pictures and give each one a number . After laying out all the pictures give each guest a pen and paper and then the object of the game is for each guest to attempt to identify as many as they can and write a name against a number. Unsurprisingly, whoever has the highest number of correct guesses is the winner of this one.
The next baby game is ideal for those who love baby trivia and such like. Baby Truth or Dare is played by writing down some baby trivia, some of which are correct and others purposely written incorrectly. During the game randomly quote the trivia and ask if these baby facts are true or false. The person who guesses correctly gets a prize while those who get it wrong are dared to perform in front of everyone else – keeping it clean of course.
The last game in the list is Dig Out the Pins and it is one that tests the agility of the guests as they fish out the most number of diaper pins from a large bowl filled with uncooked rice and diaper pins in under two minutes. The participant that has the most number of pins brings home the prize. The main thing to remember here is to be sure that all the diaper pins are fastened properly!
That little lot will ensure a happy baby shower where the guests will know each other much better when they leave than when they arrived. Especially good if both sets of grandparents don't know each other very well.
