April flowers bring BABY SHOWERS! Hmm.. I don’t think that’s how the saying goes but we are heading into baby shower season so it still fits. 😉 Thank you to Teach My for sponsoring this post. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please visit our product guide here.
Spring is finally here and babies are a blooming. I love going to baby showers and celebrating new life. Such an amazing blessing.
I remember going to baby showers with my mom when I was younger. I loved playing baby shower games. I still love playing those games but sometimes we need some new game ideas.
Baby Shower Games
Decorate Baby Onesies
I’ve seen several showers where the guests get to decorate baby onesies. That’s a fun one and the new baby receives a ton of new customized onesies.
Just make sure to think through the paint or fabric markers that you’re going to use so there’s space to create and time to dry.
Some of the ‘old’ baby shower games weren’t all that bad. Maybe it’s time for them to make a come back. There’s two that I can think of that were played at almost every baby shower.
Find the Safety Pins
This one is easy to set up. All you need is a medium size bowl of uncooked rice and some safety pins. Mix the safety pins in the jar, blind fold the guest. Choose a time limit (30-60 seconds) and have them search through the bowl, using one hand only, to see how many safety pins they can find. The one with the most, wins. It’s surprisingly hard to find those little pins in the rice.
Scoop Up the Cotton Balls
Here’s another easy one to set up but not so easy to play. Grab a big bowl and fill it with cotton balls. Guests will be blindfolded and will go one at a time. With the bowl of cotton balls on their head, an empty bowl on their lap, and using a large serving spoon, guests will scoop up the cotton balls and get them into the empty bowl. Again, 30-60 seconds is usually good. The one with the most in wins.
Tableware As The Ideal Gift Option
If you are willing not to spend a fortune on baby shower gifts, but to give something practical and cute, you should go for baby dinnerware. You can find a wide variety of sets including trays, cups, bowls, and utensils or you can give separate dinnerware as a gift. For instance, baby utensils such as spoons are a nice gift option, because they are extremely cute and are designed for the baby’s little hands. Toddler silicone training cups are another great option, as they have two handles to help the baby learn to sip and transition into regular cups.
