would relate to the parent's-to-be and their new baby relating to
cheese. This outlandish game gets funny as people's witty side comes
out. For instance, here are some statements that can be made relating to
The baby's name may
be Kolby, Jack or Brie
The parent's are Swiss and very holy
The mommy has aged a lot since the pregnancy
The baby will play in the stringed quartet when older
I hope the little one is not a muenster
The baby class was so cheesy
Have everyone write more
down and then compare. Lots of fun with this outlandish baby shower
game! A baby shower 101 origional.
Baby Poo Pong
- ( Materials: 6 diapers, a brown thin sock and rice) - Make "baby poo"
by filling the bottom of a sock with rice and folding it over into a
ball. Take the 6 diapers and make "cups" out of them by opening up the
diapers and then securing them as you would if they were on a baby. Line
up the 6 diapers into a triangle and then tape them together. Every
guest at the shower receives 5 turns throwing the "poo" into the diaper
cups. The one who gets the poo into the diapers the most times wins.
This is best for smaller baby showers (or good for
friends to play). Thanks to Liz M. for this great baby shower game!

instructions to write a paragraph of how the mommy to be will react when
having the baby or her experience on the way to the hospital when she
goes into labor. The group must find a way to incorporate the candies
they were provided into the paragraph. This way the story is creative.
After everyone has read their stories the mommy to be, she will choose a
winner. Hand out baby shower door prizes to each person of the group.
