There's nothing like celebrating the arrival of a new baby. Baby shower games are definitely not the highlight of such an occasion. The little guest of honor seems to steal the show every time.
That said, since everyone can't have the baby at the same time why not entertain the others with one of these games or activities.
Don't forget the invitations...
Want to add an extra personal touch to the shower? Create your own printable baby shower invitations. Include a favorite poem and a picture of the new baby (if a photo is available). The invitations will double as terrific keepsakes for guests and mom alike.
A Lot to Remember - Make up a large tray of baby stuff. (If you have to purchase it, you can always give it to the new mother afterwards.) Make sure there are a lot of items. The more the better because your guests will study the items even more intensely. Set a time limit.
While your guests are busy memorizing the items, find a way to discreetly remove the mother from the room.
When time is up give each guest a piece of paper and a pencil and begin asking questions about what the mother was wearing. Is her hair up, down, braided? Watch or no watch? What color eyeshadow? Lipstick or no lipstick? Is she wearing shoes? What color? Your questions will obviously depend on your 'celebrated mother'. It's fun to see how much your guests will actually remember, especially after trying so hard to memorize all of the baby stuff on the tray.
Variation: If the baby needs to sleep in another room (probably not) or the mother can somehow discreetly remove him/her, you could ask questions about the baby instead. Or you could ask questions about the mother and the baby?
If you are planning a shower after the baby is born, get a copy of the newborn's picture. Have it blown up to the size of a sheet of paper at a copy store or on someone's computer. Make as many copies as you want teams.
Glue the pictures on bristol board or card stock to give them some strength. Cut each picture into 20 or more even squares and put them in an envelope (one picture per envelope).
At the shower, divide your guests into teams and see who can put their baby puzzle together first.
Variation: Mount each picture on a different colored background. Then, cut each picture up and hide the pieces or mix them up and place them in one big pile. Tell each team the color they are looking for and then let them find their pieces and put their puzzle together.
