How Big Is Mommy? Game

I've played this at baby showers for many years. Pass around a skein of yard with scissors. Each guest cuts a piece of yarn long enough to go around the mom's tummy. 

After everyone cuts their string, measure the mom's tummy and give a prize to the person whose length of yarn comes closest.

Diaper Drawing Game

I thought this idea from a shower I attended a couple weeks ago was great! How much are diapers these days? Pretty expensive, right? And those newborns go through them like tissues.

I received an invitation to a baby shower that said, "If you'd like to be in the drawing for a $25 gift card to Olive Garden, bring diapers!"

A lot of people buy a package of diapers as a part of their gift anyway. It turned out that about 15 people brought diapers and were eligible for the drawing.

So, if I'm figuring this correctly, that was $135 worth of diapers (I checked and diapers are $8.99/pkg.) for a $25 gift certificate that the grandma bought. Smart idea, huh?

Dirty Diaper Baby Shower Game

With a marker, number at least six newborn size diapers. Melt separately six different mini candy bars. Scoop one type of melted candy bar into each of the six diapers. Depending on the candy bar, it looks quite believable as a poopy diaper.

Give the guests pieces of paper numbered 1-6. Using their sense of sight and smell, guests guess what kind of candy bar fills each diaper. Give a limited amount of time for game. The guest with the most correct guesses wins.

The fun of the game is taking pictures and laughing as guests stick their noses into what appears to be dirty diapers. At the last shower, someone even caught me taking a bite of the chocolate after the game was over. What a picture!

Suggested candy bars include:

Milky Way
Snickers Bar 
3 Musketeers Bar
Nestle's Crunch Bar
Hershey's Chocolate Bar
Reece's Peanut Butter Cup

See why I was eating the props? Have fun!

Baby Shower Favors and Ideas - Baby Bottle

Baby bottle favors are wonderfully easy to create and look really cute to boot. These can be filled with anything. Use your imagination. I've used M&Ms and jelly beans because they are so colorful. For a fun game, you can have everyone pass the bottle around and guess how many pieces of candy are in the bottle. Whoever guesses the closest without going over wins. Click the link for more fun ideas for your next shower: Baby Shower Bottle Favors and Ideas
