BABY SHOWER GAME GUIDELINES
When you’re starting to plan the baby shower, make sure you talk to the
mommy-to-be about the games that you’re planning. She might have a
favorite game she played at friend’s baby shower or might not like other
games. By talking to the Mommy-to-be, you’ll be sure to play games that
she will enjoy.
Consider the Guest
Often, the baby shower guest list will include the mommy-to-be’s friends
and family members, and some of the guests might not know each another,
especially out of town relatives. A fun game will encourage everyone to
mingle and break the ice. You can also play popular or traditional games
to help bridge generational boundaries if grandparents are among the
Games make a great icebreaker, so play a game early in the party. Try to
schedule one of your games for after everyone arrives, but before food
is served and gift opening.
Tie Games to Your
After you have decided on the baby shower theme, including your
decorating and menu, choose a game or two that goes with the theme.
Also, choose games that are easy to play. If they’re confusing or hard
to play, some guests will not have fun.
Prepare your baby shower game materials before the party begins. If one
of the games requires writing, make sure that you have enough pens or
pencils for everyone. Put all of the baby shower game materials in a
place you will remember so you stay organized and no one will be waiting
while everyone gets what they need to participate.
Games are fun to play, but a great prize makes it even better. You may
decide on a game prize that fits with the baby shower theme. Prizes
don’t have to be extravagant gifts… just a little reminder for the
winner of the great time she had at the baby shower party.
and Take Pictures
If you're excited about the games, your guests will catch your mood.
And, make sure to take lots of pictures during the game so that
mommy-to-be can have great candid photos for her baby shower scrapbook.
We hope these baby shower games give you a great start in creating the fun at the
baby shower! Feel free to email us with other
baby shower games that are your favorite so we can share them with others.
