Are you like me? Do you love Baby Shower goodgamestation? I like to go to showers just to play the games, I mean, after all, how many showers can you go to. It is only someone sitting up at the front of a room opening presents. How can I get into that…when I am not the person getting all the gifts? Of course, it is fun to see old friends and sometimes, make new ones…but still, let’s face it Baby Showers can be boring.
On way to spice the shower you are planning up is by providing lots of fun party games and game prizes. Make sure everyone gets a game prize…it is even more fun than getting a favor…and I love favors.
You can find all kinds of baby shower games to play. Couples games, change a dirty diaper games and even guess the waist size of the mom-to-be…do you think she likes this one? I know there is a bingo that can be fun, a word find, trivia about the mom and dad to be can be cute and so can guess who that baby is…where everyone brings in a baby picture of themselves and each guest has to figure out who goes with which picture. We even play this one at work during holiday office parties and it goes over big every year.
Guests like to interact with each other during games, so plan a game station. An area that is only for game playing. Set up jars of baby food that the guests can taste and then write down what they think they just ate, or put the “dirty diapers” over there. Let the game players get up and move around while they are playing. That is more fun than sitting with a bingo board. And I have nothing against baby shower bingo, it’ is just that there are so many other fun games you can play in addition to that one.
So find lots of fun games to include in your baby shower plans and get fun prizes…like those cute baby rubber duckies…love those rubber duckies! Or you can use candles, baby bottles filled with candies, glow jewelry…anything fun. Of course, your game prizes can also match your baby shower theme ideas. Give out rubber duckies if you are using a Duckie shower theme or give out jungle animal plush toys with a King or Queen of the Jungle shower, or personalized tea bags at a Tea party shower. You can co-ordinate game prizes with your theme, or you can just give out some fun game prizes. Everyone will enjoy getting one.
