Oh, you caught me at the right time. We have 5 pregnant friends right now!
Here are some ideas:
1. What is Baby Eating?
Give each attendee a sheet of paper and a pencil. Pass around unlabeled jars of baby food with numbers written on the lids. The players pass around the jars, sniffing and/or trying to guess the type of food, writing their answers down. The one who guesses the most foods correctly wins.
This game is especially fun if it is a couple's baby shower. Boys do not like to try baby food! lol
2. Baby Bag Mystery
Take about five baby items and place in a paper bag. Staple the bags shut and number them. Pass out paper and pencil to the guests. Then pass the bags around and have them right down their answers. After all have finished the one who gets the most right wins. Get some easy items like diaper pins, pacifiers, rattles, and a few harder items like bow holders for the babies shoes; a fingernail clippers.
3. Baby Word Scramble
Make a list of twenty words all dealing with pregnancy such as bottle, diapers, crib, stroller, etc. Give every guest a time limit to unscramble the words.
4. Celebrity Babies
Each guest is given a list of celebrity moms on the left, and a list of names on the right. Match the celebrity mom to the name of her baby/child. Ex: Madonna would by matched to Lourdes. Names of celebrities and their children could be found online.
5. Guess the Nursery Rhymes
List partial lines of nursery rhymes and have the guest guess the title of the nursery rhyme. Go to http://4partyfavors.com/nursery_rhymes.htm
for a complete list.
Example: The dish ran away with the spoon. Answer: Hey Diddle Diddle
The game gets actually really hard.
6. Motherly Advise
Upon arriving, each guest is given an index card and is to write a question a new mother would ask (example: How can I stop my baby from crying?) Then during the shower these same cards are passed back out to the guests only face down so questions can not be seen by anyone. Guests are to write the answer to the question on the back that they placed on their card from the beginning. Then someone can read question from the front and then answer on the back. These cards can go to the expecting mom at the end of the shower.
