Most of the parents celebrate the awaited arrival of their first child. You may want to hold a baby shower for this occasion. In any party, you don’t expect your guests to just chi chat and eat only. You can plan some fun and wholesome games for your baby shower. This will help to keep your guest occupied during the occasion.
You can choose many entertaining and fun activities. The challenging part is which games to choose and how many should you include into the party. Here are some tips to help you in planning baby shower games.
Choose games that require time frame. These games can help you to keep your party on schedule. Most games have a
a definite beginning, middle and end. You need a timer to keep the games running on time.
For example, you can ask your guests to write down as many songs as they can. The title of the song must have the word “baby”. Tell them that they have 10 minutes to accomplish the task. It is up to you to set the time. If more people participate in these games, then you need to give them more time for playing the game. You need to take into account the time taken for instructions and handing out papers when planning this game.
Some baby shower games can take more time regardless of the number of participants. Consider baby bingo. This simple game only needs pens, blotters or markers and papers with grids. Ask the participants to fill in the squares with gifts that they think the mom-to-be will receive.
As you open the gifts, ask them to strike off the items on their pages. The first one to get a “bingo” wins a prize. Baby bingo takes longer time to play but almost everyone will enjoy this game. This fun activity can keep your guests occupied. You don’t have to limit yourself to one winner. In fact, the games will be livelier if you plan for more than one winner.
When it comes to winners, don’t overlook the prizes. The winners can choose their prizes from the gift baskets. You can also give out gifts to the winning participants at the close of the games.
If you plan the games properly and timely, everyone will always remember the fun time they experience. The choice of games and the number of games are important for a successful baby shower. Therefore, take time to plan an entertaining yet unforgettable baby shower game.
