7. 'Yikes'....The Water Broke baby shower games!
Some of the most fun your baby shower guests will have will
come from this baby shower
games! Partially fill tiny dixie cups with lightly tinted blue
(food coloring) water. Into each cup place a tiny plastic baby, like
the ones used for cake decorating sometimes. Freeze them in the cups
with blue water. Have the baby shower games participants gather outside and
give each guest one of the frozen cups while playing other games or opening
gifts, and the first to be able to actually pull the baby out has to yell
"My water broke!"....It sounds corny, but you wouldn't believe the
people trying to hold their cups over lamps or between their legs to get
them to melt quicker.
8. Discovery-What Will the Baby Look Like baby shower games???
Prior to the baby
shower photocopy pictures of the expecting mom, her hubby, her mom &
dad, his mom & dad and even the dog. Cut the facial features out,
like pairs of eyes, noses, mouths, etc. and gave everyone construction paper
with the shape of a baby's face copied on it. Everyone at the baby
shower has to use the pieces of different faces to create what they think
the baby is going to look like. Even mustaches and goatees are allowed in
this game! You won't believe the creations people will come up with.
9. Lets Find....'The Squares' baby
Start out with a jar
with a hole cut in the lid and has some coins in it. Pass it around the room
to each baby shower games guest.
Each person, one at a time will say something they have NEVER done. Anyone
at the baby shower who ever has done that particular thing has to put money
in the jar. Every baby shower
games guest tries to think of things they have NEVER done that most
anybody else would HAVE done. For example~~ there might be someone who
has never had a cavity!! Maybe a grandmother who has never been
drunk.....lots of people would have to "annie up" on that one!
These are just a few ideas that don't really cost much to do but are lots of
fun at a baby shower if you have a fun gang, and at the end the jar of money
goes to start a savings account for the new baby!
Baby Shower Original Art Project
This is a great one
for leaving a lasting piece of original art as a keepsake for the baby and
person to be. For
the baby shower, have a nice size pre-stretched
canvas, perhaps 16" X 22" or close. You can even try paper
such as crepe or tissue paper as a free alternative. This could even
be framed depending on how much you what to spend. You should get some
vivid, bright and bold colors of acrylic or oil paints. Even
fluorescent colors are fine. Also obtain, a small amount of odorless
paint thinner and some brushes. All of these items are readily
available from an art supply shop. Ask the baby shower guests to each
contribute a little artistic work to the canvas during the party. They
can make as many trips to the canvas as they desire throughout the baby
shower. Perhaps there is someone at the baby shower with special
artistic talents who would like to start the painting with some sort of
theme. Anything works here! Abstract art is nice for this.
For our daughter a great friend, Lousia created the theme of the painting as
"Jump For Joy, Angelina is Born!" Guests also may cut
out little flowers from different colored pieces of construction
paper. On the back of the flowers the guest may write down a wish for
the child and sign their name. Later, after the original artwork
dries, glue the little flowers all around the art in a way that they can be
lifted and the birth wish can be read. It will be a truly magnificent
original piece of art, a masterpiece! And the child will have it for
