What games can I play at my baby shower?

Silly games used to be a traditional part of the baby shower when it developed in the United States.  If you’d like to include games in the entertainment, here are a few fun ideas.

Name the baby items. Give each person a piece of paper, and a pen or pencil, and a fixed time to write down as many baby items as she can think of. The woman with the most answers wins a prize!

Guess mummy’s tummy size. Give each woman a piece of string or yarn, and have them cut it to the length that they guess would best fit around the mummy to be's tummy. Whoever gets theirs the closest wins a prize!

Guess the safety pins. Fill a jar with safety pins, and have each woman guess how many there are in the jar. At the end of the party, whoever has guessed the closest to the actual number wins a prize.

Put the baby on the mummy. A variation on the ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ game, this requires baby cut outs, and tape. Have each woman blindfolded in turn, and then they must attempt to tape the baby to the mummy to be, nearest to her belly. Whoever gets closest wins!

There are plenty of silly and fun games you can play at your baby shower, so pick a few, buy a few prizes, and spend some time having fun!
