Easy Baby Shower Games
If you or a loved one are expecting, you likely have a party planned to celebrate. As well as food and decorations to consider, you will also need to come up with ways to keep your guests entertained.
Baby Shower Games are a great way to hold a fun and memorable event to celebrate your little bundle of joy. The secret is to keep it straightforward so that everyone can play. Choose from funny games such as diaper pong or more engaging ones such as baby shower bingo.
Another idea is to put a particular amount of sweets in a jar and have guests guess the amount. The winner takes home the jar of sweets. You can also match the games to a particular theme; for example, if you are going for a nautical style, you could put fish crackers in a jar for guests to guess the amount.
For this fun game, all you need is a few ping pong balls, a poster board, and diapers.
First, decorate your board with scrapbook paper and write the game's name at the top. You will also want to write a little note about the game instructions. Then, stick any number of diapers in a pattern on the board.
There are many different ways you can play this, and I suggest you keep a scorecard to track who can sink the most ping pong balls.
You could even add another layer of difficulty by painting different numbers on each diaper to make each have a different score, similar to a game of darts.
Baby Shower Bingo
You can find many printables online that can be used with ease. Each person plays this game by marking off their bingo card when a typical baby shower gift is opened. In the example above, there is an additional element of 'I spy' where you can mark your card if you see something yellow being gifted.
