Baby shower games are great icebreakers in a baby shower party because they help you create a festive atmosphere that makes the occasion even more special and memorable. If you have a newborn baby and you have never hosted a baby shower before, here are some tips to get you started:
1. Would-be-moms should generally not take the stress of organizing or hosting baby showers. Ask some friends or relatives or hire someone to do all the planning and organization for you.
You can still be a part of the baby shower by approving the thoughts of the planner. Leave the legwork to others to minimize the stress and physical pressure.
2. Have a budget set in advance because the baby shower can turn into an expensive event if you do not follow through the budget.
Remember – there are many ways to cut down on the expenses associated with baby showers.
If you’re short on budget, instead of renting a restaurant, you can use your home or a relative’s house to host the event. The main point is to use the money wisely instead of over-spending.
3. Theme-oriented decorations are always popular. So, before hosting a baby shower, think of a theme that goes with the surroundings. A simple theme such as “Pirates of the Carribean” or “Colors and Flowers” could make a hit.
A theme will identify the organizer what other things are needed for the celebration.
Without a theme, things may go chaos in the last minute and the planner will have a hard time putting together the event.
Baby Shower Games galore
The best thing about baby shower games is that they are not difficult to set up. Generally, three to four items is all you need to set up the game.
For example, if you are including a diaper relay in your list of games, you will only need a few dolls, some diapers, and a timer. Keep your games simple, so they will be easy to implement during the event. As for the prizes, small items like pens and figurines will do.
Baby shower games are also an easy way to give away door prizes to guests. If you just want your guests to really and enjoy the baby shower, host these games and watch the fun your guests have and how much they enjoy the baby shower.
Here’s an example of a baby shower game.
Freeze Time – This a like a traditional party game for kids and it can make a party livelier because the game involves dancing. For play this, you need the following items: music player, and some prizes for the last three people standing.
This game is very simple: players will dance when music is playing and they have to “freeze” when the music is paused.
Anyone caught moving during the “freeze time” will be automatically eliminated from the game. The last three people remaining after all others have been eliminated will be declared the winners.
