The weekend forecast

I have been looking forward to this weekend for quite a while now as I am hosting a baby shower on Sunday for my friend, Chantal. I am pretty organized except for the fact that my living room is currently empty and smells of paint (nervous laughter). I’ve been told by my wonderful husband that everything SHOULD be back in its place by Sunday. What the shower invitees don’t know is that I may be handing out paint brushes and smocks at the door …lol. Ok, seriously, the room will be finished by Sunday and everyone will come and have a wonderful time because that’s just how things go! We’ll play a few games, eat some cake, open presents – it’s all good.
Speaking of games, anyone know any fun baby shower games you’d like to share? C'mon, I know you must know at least one ...

I Googled for games. I have the standards...clothes pin game, etc...

You can do the Poopy Diaper Game. It is gross but funny. Get little diapers and put some peanut butter in one. Pass it around in any fashion. Whoever ends up w/ the poopy one gets a prize.

Baby clothes hanging up game...sting a clothes line, have the players try to hang up baby clothes while holding a "baby" and talking on the phone. Call it the Multitasking Mommy Game.

Hope that helps! Can't wait to hear all about it.

Keep smilin!

Buy assorted flavors of baby food. Take the label off the jars or cover the label and number each jar. Pass around the jars and give each person a paper with numbers 1 - X and have people write down their guesses. They can either look at or taste to decide their guess. The person with the most correct answers wins.

Take photos of babies - from magazines, etc -- cut the heads off and replace with the heads of celebrities (again, from magazines..don't want anyone getting the wrong idea!!) Number the babies and pin up around the room. Everyone gets a numbered sheet and has to go around and identify the babies!

This is a variation of the poopy diaper game listed above. Buy a bunch of different chocolate bars(at least ten) slice off a piece of each and place in a newborn diaper. Heat each diaper in microwave until melted. Players pass around each diaper(number them) and try to guess each what each candy bar is. Players can smell and look, but no tasting! The player thatg guesses the most wins. It is hilarious to see people picking up what appear to be poopy diapers and smelling them.

The best game I remember playing at a baby shower was one where everyone gets one big peice of bubble gum, like bubble yum, or something like that. It's pink, they unwrap it and everyone gets a few minutes to "sculpt" a baby out of it. Then all of the creations are put on a tray, numbered and the best one is voted for by everyone. This should be done somewhat privately, so that you don't know who's is who's. Mine looked more like an animal of some sort, but I remember one lady created something in minutes that looked like a real baby, and I was amazed!
