I was looking at a website the other night on various types of baby shower games. Since mine will be in less than a month..I figured it was time I started figuring out what types of games could be played! I know some don't really care for the games played at showers, whether its bridal or baby, but I've always enjoyed them alot! I'm looking for something different, not too complicated, and good for a large crowd. Any ideas, anyone??
I don't, however, like playing the typical "Bingo" at showers. That just screams "boring" and "I didn't care what we play at the shower..its just easy.". No offense to anyone who's done Bingo at a shower, its just my personal preference. I do, however, enjoy the birthday/anniversary game and am planning on doing that one! It generates alot of laughs and is most always a hit. In case you've never heard of it before, all the guests write their birthdates and anniversary dates on a slip of paper (both seperate), and when the game begins a date is called out. The person who it relates to (whether its your birthday or anniversary) grabs a "prize". You have 'x' amount of prizes and anyone can 'steal' your prize if their 'date' is called out. Whoever is left with prizes at the end of the game wins! Sorry if that didn't make much sense..but if you played it before..you understand!
Some rather 'interesting' games I saw online included "Pin the sperm on the egg"..seriously??? I thought that was the oddest one I saw. There was also one where you put a plastic baby and a piece of string in a clear plastic cup, fill it with water and freeze it. Have the guests guess what time the baby will be 'born'..that is..when the water thaws and the baby is out of the ice. I think its also called something like 'what time will the water break'. How people come up with some of these ideas is beyond me!! I thought that one was rather cute though and might be a possibility.
At any rate, I'd LOVE to hear your ideas and any games you might have played at baby showers, whether it was your own shower or one you attended!!!
