You’ve settled on the perfect theme for your baby shower. The next item on your to-do list? Figuring out how you’re going to keep all those party guests entertained. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with a roundup of crowd-pleasing baby shower gamesand activities. Let the fun begin!
The baby shower guests have begun to arrive. Now’s the perfect time to schedule a party icebreaker, like one of the following baby-inspired games:
This one’s a fun variation on the classic party game Bingo, but, in this case, the numbers on the Bingo cards have been replaced by words from the world of babies.Or, if you prefer, challenge your party guests to a game of Baby Bling-o rather than Bingo—in which case the bingo cards are all about the baby bling. Think strollers and diapers andbaby monitors.
Baby Animals Trivia:
Everyone knows that a baby cat is called a kitten and a baby dog is called a puppy. But what’s the name for a baby owl or a baby fish? Party guests will enjoy testing their knowledge of all things baby animals byplaying a round of Baby Animals Trivia.
Baby showers are the stuff of which memories are made—and scheduling one or more of the following activities will help to ensure that your shower is every bit as memorable as it is fun.
Give party guests the opportunity to tie-dye a onesie for the new baby. For best results, use 100% cotton onesies and give the dye the chance to set overnight before washing and drying the newly tie-dyed garments.
Invite party guests to write heartfelt messages of love and best wishes for the new baby. Then incorporate these messages of caring into a star mobile, a love line,or a wishing tree that can double as a baby shower decoration and a gift for the new parents.
Imagine how much it would mean to the new parents to be able to decorate their baby’s room with a piece of art made by people they love. As party host, you can make that happen by supplyingnon-toxic paints and pre-cut wooden letters. Encourage the party guests to strut their creative stuff and get ready to be dazzled by the results.
Send each party guest home with an attractive baby shower memento: a one-of-a-kind terrarium. Plan to hit the thrift shop ahead of time to load up on an assortment of clear containers with wide-opened tops—like fish bowls, vases, and oversized mason jars. Then swing by the gardening store to pick up the other materials you’ll need for this eye-catching craft: sand, stones, potting soil, aquarium gravel, and an assortment of small, slow-growing plants. When it comes time for your guests to assemble their terrariums, they should: Start out with a layer of stones at the bottom (to provide drainage). Add a layer of sand and then a two-and-a-half inch deep layer of soil (enough soil to cover the roots of each plant). Dig a hole in the soil for each plant. Add their plants and decorate the final layer of the terrarium with stones and other decorative elements.
