So every shower has games to play and no matter how cheesy they may be, it's tradition, so its gotta be done. However, when planning this shower I attempted to make it as fun as possible while limiting the cheese factor. I think I succeeded.
I always love a good puzzle so everyone participated in a baby-themed word scramble and a "name that baby animal" quiz. We also did a baby trivia quiz which was a lot harder than you would imagine. Winners for these games received a gift card of their choice. We also played baby gift bingo to try to spice up the gift opening portion of the event. Everyone wrote items that they thought the Mom-to-be would receive in their bingo card squares. I punched out a million circles in brown cardstock for this game (ouch!). Then as gifts were opened, guests placed a circle on the squares they guessed right until somebody got "Bingo". The winner won a fabulous gift basket.
