Someone who correctly guesses the name will be the winner.
7. What will Baby look like:
Before Baby comes, there is numerous discussion already done on “how the baby will look like.” Though it’s not possible to predict what characteristics the kid will have, this hilarious shower activity can shed a tad off (admittedly highly unscientific) insight. During party time, give each guest a baby-shaped cutout and scissors. Mix them up and then glue the elements onto the baby-shaped stickers. Take a look at all the “babies” and have a good laugh!
8. What’s the Story:
It is one of the original plot twist game for the baby shower. It would be so much fun when parents are asked to create a short story on the spot. For this, spread the word lists to each parent. Distribute paper and pens to them. Give guests five-ten minutes to write a story that includes all 15-20 words. Take turns reading the funny stories out loud in public. The person who comes up with the entertaining story wins.
9. Quilting Time:
It’s a comforting yet straightforward game. To play this Game, give one square piece and several pen/pencil to each guest parent. The pen should be a Fabric pen. While the mom to be is opening gifts, have each guest parent decorate her square fabric piece. After the shower, have the hostess stitch the squares together to make a personal, impromptu quilt for the Baby.
10. Wanna Make a Bet Game:
Put guests at random position, but in the right way, and by dangling a cash prize. See who can come closest to or guess Baby’s arrival date. Give note cards and pens to the guests, and remind them of the pregnant lady’s official due date. Let each guest note down her name and the approx date she expects Baby to be born.
11. Saving Time:
At the shower party, have each guest present the item she brought and explained why she chose it in the first place. After every explanation, guests will put their things in the container box or any bag. When all the gifts are in, have the speaker seal the container and present it to the mom-to-be as a gift.
12. Baby Memory Game:
On a big decorated tray, collect together Baby related items like a dummy, nappy rash cream, diapers, nail clippers, teething ring, etc. and cover it with a towel. Provide each guest a pen and paper and show them the contents of the tray for one min then put the plate away from them.
