Baby Shower Dilemma -Does anyone have any other ideas for a baby shower besides playing games?

My daughter is pregnant w/ her 1st child. I’m remarried & so is her father. Therefore, we have a rather large co-ed guest list of about 60-75 ppl. I really want to have a unique shower without being bogged down with alot of boring baby shower games. How can we entertain our guest?

The Expert answers:

It depends on how social the group is and if you can run with non-game activities. However there might be a few ideas that could work.

This could involve guests that are already parents and could be done as couples or paired groups A few game ideas and thoughts – plan an advice share game or activity these take long and are more social, plus they don’t seem like games. Http://

You could have fun with the guys doing silly stuff like
Baby Bottle Drink off is fun and harder than you think. Http:// or a baby changing game or baby food tasting game.

Couples could do the Baby Food Feeding Races or cotton ball games.

Other non-game ideas are build the library, build baby’s first bank, create a scrapbook with well wishes.

If you don’t have shower games, then have things people can do to socialize and share stories.

Good luck

What are some fun games to play at a baby shower?

My baby shower is next weekend and we are looking for some fun baby shower games to play. Appreciate your suggestions!

The Expert answers:

Baby Word Find- This is a great game that you can print out right at your own computer. All you have to do is think of all the baby related words that you can. Place these words into a grid and fill in the remaining spaces with other random letters. For even more fun, make it a timed game and then whoever completes it the fastest can win a prize.

Baby Word Scramble- For this game, take your list of baby related words or phrases and scramble them up. For example, the word bottle can be scrambled as “toblet”. You can time the guests while unscrambling them and whoever unscrambles the most can win a prize.

Guess the Number- For this game, take a baby bottle and fill it up with candy or a tiny baby related item. Make sure to keep track of how many you fill it up with. At the party, have all the guests guess how many are in the bottle. Whoever correctly guesses, or is closest to, the number gets a prize, such as the filled bottle of candy.

My Baby’s Famous- If the parent’s already have a named picked out for the baby, or at least have a few in mind, this is a great baby shower game. For this game, have the guests write down as many famous people who share the name as they can in 3-5 minutes. Other variations of this game can be famous people with the mothers name or the father’s name. You can also do this with whatever middle name is chosen for the baby.

Who has good ideas for baby shower games?

I need some fun baby shower games. Who can give me some good ideas? And has anyone heard of a game where you use food and guess the body part? Ex: a piece of macaroni stands for the babys elbow.

The Expert answers:

Potatoe game. Have all the ladies put a potatoe between their legs and walk with it to the othere side of the room w/o dropping it, and drop it into a bowl. Whoever can do this the fastest w/o dropping the potaoe before getting to the bowl wins a prize. Another game is getting laundry clips in one hand and using the one hand to clip onto a hanger, w/o dropping the clips see how many the ladies can clip the pins to the hanger with only one hand. Whoever gets the most pinned wins a prize. Last game. Take toilet paper and have the ladies guess how big the mom is around the belly w/o touching her. Whoever guesses the closest wins. These games were played at my baby shower and we had a blast !!!!
