My Sister-in-Law has just given our family the best news of the year. She is Pregnant! So my mind (being the one track planing mind it is) has gone into Baby Shower Mode.
The only party I know of that only has one theme is a Baby Shower. The Baby is the main subject of any Baby Shower. The only thing that changes is the color. Pink, Blue or Neutral.
Games at a baby Shower are quite important. Some examples are:
Tummy Size: (Materials- String or yarn and scissors) Have each woman pull
the yarn to the size they believe would fit perfectly around the Mother-To-Be's center of
her pregnant tummy. After everyone cuts their string, compare the results to the
Mummy-To-Be's actual tummy. Give a prize to the woman who is the most close! This is a
baby shower favorite.
*Guess the baby pictures:
Ask for everyone's pictures prior to the baby shower. Have all the pictures in a collage
and make lines for people to fill in who they think the babies are out of the girls at the
baby shower. If most women don't know each other, just have the pictures of the mother,
mother-in-law, sisters, and mommy-to-be. See how many people guess right. You can make
copies of the baby picture collage to see how many can guess right!
Baby Items Can You Name: (Materials- pad of paper and pen for each woman).
Have each woman write down as many baby products as they can name (bottle, blanket,
pacifier, etc) within 5 minutes. Sure it is easy at the beginning, but towards the last
few minutes, the women will start racking their brains for more :) Give a prize to the
woman who gets the most baby products named!
