You are working hard carrying your child. You are eating for two, as well as feeling the backaches for too, and now it’s time to celebrate! Have your friends and family gather together to host a baby shower in your honor, complete with the best baby shower games.
This fun game involves throwback baby photos of each guest.
– Baby photos of each guest
– Clothes line and clothespins (optional)
In the invite, ask each guest to bring a printed photo of herself as a baby. Upon arrival, number each photo and hang them either on a clothesline across the room or lay them out on a table for all to see. Give guests time to view each photo, writing down the number and the person’s name they believe corresponds to the image. Once everyone has had a chance to review all of the adorable photos, go through each photo individually and reveal each person’s guess.
– Glue sticks
– Old magazines
Using old magazines, have guests cut out different features of various models, celebrities, and advertisements, to create the face of your future baby. When the masterpieces are complete you, as the mom-to-be, will decide which likeness you prefer and crown a winner.
As a new mom you want to be prepared with stories to sooth your child to sleep. What’s better than having your close friends create stories that you can use over and over again that will always make you smile?
Give everyone a piece of paper and a pen. Have each person start at the top of the paper, writing the first line of a story (for example: There was once a little pig who lived in the forest).
Then have each person pass her paper to the right.
Each guest will now read the first line on her paper and continue the story for one more sentence as she sees fit.
Once completed, each player will fold over the top of the paper so the very first sentence is covered up and all that can be seen is the sentence that was just written.
Now everyone passes her paper to the right again so the next sentence of the story can be written.
And, like before, the previous sentence is folded over so only the last sentence can be seen and the paper is passed to the right again.
This should continue until the page is full or when everyone has had a chance to write a sentence for each story.
Once the stories are complete, take turns reading each story as if it were a child’s bedtime tale and enjoy the fun that ensues.
Now it’s time for some baby shower cake, games and laughs! Have a great baby shower!
