If you are hosting a baby shower, one of the absolute must haves are games or activities for your guests to participate in. Having games to play is not only a traditional part of the celebration, it serves as a way for the guests and mother-to-be to really enjoy themselves. It’s a good idea to have a few games in mind to play.
The first game in our list of games is called the Clothes Pin Game. This is a very easy game to play, and the guests attending your baby shower will enjoy it because it continues throughout the entire shower. The rules are simple. Below are the instructions on how to play The Clothes Pin Game:
Enough clothes pins for each guest to have one
Prize for the winner
1.) The game begins when everyone has arrived.
* The hostess hands out a clothes pin to each guest.
* The rules are explained at the beginning of the shower, once every one has arrived. (As the hostess, you can make them whatever you want! Use as many or as little as you want. Example rules are listed below.)
2.) Each guest at the shower must clip a clothes pin onto their clothes.
3.) If someone breaks the “rules” and another guest catches it, the person how broke the rules must then give up their clothes pin to the person who caught the rule breaker.
4.) The person at the end of the shower with the most clothes pins (must be pinned to their clothes) is the winner!
No crossing your legs
No using the word baby
Prizes can be anything you want. Candles are a common game prize, but it can be anything you desire. You’re the hostess, so make it your own! A dollar store is a great place to shop for baby shower prizes.
This is an excellent game to play at baby showers, because it involves everyone in attendance. The laughter you’ll surely get from your guests will make the mother-to-be remember her baby shower, and your hostessing abilities will certainly be envied.
Remember, it’s not about how much money you spend on the shower, it’s about the memories you help create, and sending the expecting mother off with a good start in preparation for her new little bundle of joy.
Hopefully this game will give you a head start in planning that perfect shower for that special mom to be!
