Last week I shared about the food that we served at our Bows & Bow Ties Baby Shower and today, I will be sharing about the games that we played. I knew that I wanted to avoid certain games such as smell the diaper and measure mommy’s belly so I planned games that were a little more low key. If you are planning a shower of your own, check out our free printable planning sheets.
Mom and I will be compiling each set of wish cards into a little book for each of the mommies-to-be to have as a keepsake. We even e-mailed cards to the guests who were unable to attend so they could still participate in this special activity. At the end of this post, you can download your own general baby wish cards to be used at your next baby event!
Once the shower got started, we begin by playing Baby Scattergories using the first initial of each child’s name (B & C). To play the game, I gave the guests 3 minutes to fill in the blanks for each letter set. After the time was up, we went around the room and shared our answers. We had a lot of fun laughing at everyone’s creative answers! For scoring, if guests had a duplicate response, they crossed out that answer and gave themselves a point for each unique response. The person with the most points was the winner. I created a general B is for Baby Scattergories game, as well, which you can download here.
