My niece Emily is having a baby shower next week and she has put me in charge of the games...I want something new and different...Here is what I have come up with so far....but I need more options!The Cotton Ball Game <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
With this game you will need two large bowls, one of which should be filled with cotton balls plus a large kitchen spoon and a cloth to use as a blindfold.
Each guest in turn competes in this game. Blindfold the guest and give one minute to transfer as many cotton balls from one bowl to the other just using the kitchen spoon.
Make a note of how many of the cotton balls each guest can transfer in exactly one minute. The guest who transfers the most cotton balls is the winner.
Due to the fact that the spoon is quite heavy and the cotton balls are quite light it is very difficult for the guests to tell whilst blindfolded whether they have anything in the spoon, consequently they will spend most of their time transferring an empty spoon. This is very amusing for the other guests to watch.
You will need about one can of dough for every two people. pass out the dough and have the players make little babies. the mother-to-be then judges and the winner gets a prize
Diaper <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Derby
To play, you need a 4 roll pkg of toilet paper. At shower divide guests into 4 teams. Give each tema a roll of paper.
Using only that each group should dress one of their team members in a diaper.
They can’t use pins, staples or anything else to hold it together. Emily picks the best diapered baby and the whole team wins a small prize….an oreo cookie.
Eat the Oreo.
Everyone is given a oreo cookie. At go everyone must lick all the frosting off the cookies, show the judge and then eat it until completely gone. Winner gets a pint of milk to wash it down.
Wheres the Nuk?
Have three people race.
Three bowls filled with oatmeal.
Tied their hands behind their back and have them race eating the oatmeal until they find the Nuk at the bottom.
First one to find it wins.
Catch….there is no Nuk.
The Bag Game
You'll need large paper bags (you can get them free at the grocery store!)
Give all your guests a bag and have them place the bag over their heads. Then ask the participants to take off something they really don't need. It may sound boring but it is so funny when you see women taking off rings, shoes and even clothing not thinking it's the bag on their head that they really don't need. And of course whomever takes off the bag first is the winner! And the participants who still have the bag on, you continue to ask them to take off something they really don't need, if the participants still don't get the hint just tell them without laughing too loud to take that silly bag off their head(s).
Baby Socks Matching Game
In the center of the room, place a pile of (separated) 10-15 pairs of baby socks (solids, patterned, and different sizes). Each guest gets 10 seconds to match them. The guest with most pairs of matching socks wins a prize. (* the more patterned socks, the harder).
Also, you may want to ask each guest via their invitation to bring in a pair of baby socks to save on party costs). At the end, the mother-to-be takes home all the socks.
Players: Smallto large groups
This would be with other things in some kind of relay race.....
