Here are some an inexpensive team games that can brighten up your party and entertain your guests.
There are many kinds of games you can play at your baby shower.
Some games are elaborate and expensive and some can be done for next to nothing while at the same time entertaining your guests.
A cool trick that seems to work well is to pair off your guests into teams. I think teamwork elevates competition to a whole new level because it entertains us at the same time we are working together for a common goal.
Here are a few game ideas that you can play in groups
The baby Alphabet game – I was at a baby shower not too long ago and the host separated us into groups of two. She then gave each group a sheet of paper. She told us to write down the alphabet from A to Z vertically down the sheet of paper.
She then instructed us to think of baby related words that begin with each letter of the alphabet. She gave us 12 minutes to accomplish this task.
Needless to say our competitive juices were pumping and we produced some pretty funky baby related words to go along with each letter of the alphabet.
I must admit that some of the answers were a little underhanded. For example we wrote Y. chromosome for the letter ‘Y’, X. chromosome for the letter ‘X’, and zygote for the letter ‘Z’.
We also added some toy companies to fill in some of the letters, he he he.
My partner and I both won candy apples and we finished that game with a great feeling of accomplishment.
I was amazed on how much fun I had with that simple, yet highly competitive games!
Dress up the baby – I hosted a shower once where I split up the guests into teams of two.
I gave each team a baby doll with dirty clothes on it and a set of clean clothes next to it. I instructed each group to change the baby’s clothes and dress up the baby with clean clothes but with one important condition.
Each team member could only use one hand and they both must work together to remove the dirty clothes and replace it with clean clothes. The fastest team wins.
Baby shower Pictionary – you might be thinking that this is a little bit trite but I can tell you now it’s a great baby shower game!
Apply your standard Pictionary rules but with baby shower themed drawings. Trust me, you’re going to have a blast!
