I’ve recently been a co-host of a couple of baby showers and have of course made some Pinterest projects. And have actually invented a couple of baby shower games that I thought I’d share since I’ve had many requests.
Catchphrase: Celebrity Mom Edition (Pin)
So this is a mix between Catchphrase and Taboo. Everyone splits into teams of 2. Each team is given 5 cards with the names of famous/celebrity moms. One person on the team will be trying to describe the name on the card without saying the names of the kids, husband, or father of the kids while the other person has one minute to try to guess as many of the 5 cards as they can. Once the minute is over, assess who has guessed the most and trade the cards. You can eliminate teams or continue the rounds as many times as you want, keeping track of each teams cumulative score and then the team that has the most wins.
I’ve provided the Word Document (So that you can continue to add names as more celebrity moms have babies.) You can get that here. The font may not show up so you might want to either download Broadway font or make it any kind of fun font you’d like.
Once you get it printed and cut out you can just glue them onto any colored card stock. I did multi-colored pink cards. For extra durability you can also laminate them if you think you’ll be using them over and over.
Don’t Forget the Lyrics: Nursery Rhyme Edition (Pin)
This one’s easy, if you’ve seen the show Don’t Forget The Lyrics. Basically everyone gets some kind of noise maker (whistle, kazoo…). The first 2 or 3 lines of the nursery rhyme are read off and whoever blows their whistle first can finish the nursery rhyme. You can keep track of who had the most and that person wins. Or you have give out little prizes for each person who gets one right. There’s probably a lot of different ways to play it so feel free to experiment!
For my noisemakers I used lip shaped whistles like these:
And the the Word Document is here
Personal WELCOME BABY Sign (Pin)
I simply made letters spelling out “WELCOME BABY LASTNAME” each being a page big. I printed them on white card stock and had crayons available for when people arrived. Each person would decorate a letter then we hung them up with string and clothes pins. It serves as decoration for the shower and then the sign is the mom’s to take home with her. The Word Document is here.
Now for the Pinterest projects!
I made these “cupcakes” out of receiving blankets, washclothes and bibs. Pin is here.
And the grand finale…something that never in a million zillion years did I think I could actually make..a Diaper Motorcycle!
Boom! I actually had a BLAST making this and was so proud when I was done that I actually did it. I also have to give credit where credit is due. Although I found the idea on Pinterest I used this tutorial.
I had a great time being a part of these showers and am excited for more chances to be crafty and creative!
