La Di Da Baby Tips
Not all baby shower parties feature games or activities, nor do they have to,
but it can be fun to involve the guests in a group activity. Baby shower games
and activities should be entertaining and allow the guests to interact together.
Decorate baby items!
Decorate onesies, bibs and t-shirts using fabric paints, fabric pens or tie-dye.
This activity does double duty by also providing a party decoration. Hang
the items to dry using baby hangers or clothes pins on a colorful (theme
matching) ribbon. Read instructions for the pens and tie dye material -
you may need to set the color on the garments in the dryer. Prewash the
items prior to the party. Have the guests sign the clothing tags.
Spark ideas by setting out coloring books or providing stamps and stencils.
Use wax paper and/or cardboard inserts to protect the fabric and provide a good
work surface. If using paints, hang the decorated items to dry on line
using clothes pins.
You can purchase supplies at your local Target, K-Mart or Wal-Mart. All
sell plain white or pastel onesies and bibs in packs of five plus.
Supplies can also be purchased online at
Non-clothing items can be decorated by the guests and given as a present.
Consider painting wood baby blocks, customizing a piggy bank or even creating or
decorating a baby quilt during the party.

Baby Shower Games
Baby Bottle Drink: This is a great game for a coed baby shower party.
Clean and fill baby bottles with equal amounts of beer for the gents and root
beer for the under 21 set or non-drinkers. Gather the participants and
hand out the filled bottles. Have each person wait for the Drink! signal
and kick off the game. The first person to drink all of the contents of
the bottle wins! The winner at the baby shower I attended that had chewed
off the tip of the nipple and was able to get a better flow.
M&M or jelly bean count: This is a stand alone game and can be done at
the guests leisure. Fill a baby bottle or jar with M&Ms or jelly beans
and be sure to count the quantity of candies. Use color coordinated
candies for a special touch. Set out the filled container, a sheet of
paper and pen with a line for guests name and guess. Ask the guests to guess
the correct number of candies in the container. The person closest to the
correct amount wins - announce winner at the end of the games session.
Baby Draw, a pictionary type game
Customize the games by entering the expectant parents name in the header of the
document. Print out enough copies of the games for all of the guests, the host
and an extra for the mom-to-be to take home. Make sure you have enough pens or
pencils for the guests. Have a timer on hand and restrict the fill in time to
three or five minutes.
Hand out each of the games sheets to the guests and explain the rules to the
group. Give the answer to the first question as an example. After the game time
is up or all the guests have completed the game, the host should go through the
list, read the questions / challenge and explain the answer. The guests then
taly their correct responses.
Baby Animals (*option to change this up = ask the guest to think up cute
names for the baby animals. guests then decide on who has named each of the
animals the best (fluffy, stretch, etc.)
