If you are planning a baby shower, you know you need food, decorations, as well as games and prizes. Hosting a baby shower can be very expensive if you shop at your local gift shop. However, you can create a unique baby shower that everyone will love and that is easy on your budget without stepping foot in a store.

Setting Your Budget

If you are planning a baby shower, you know you need food, decorations, as well as games and prizes. Hosting a baby shower can be very expensive if you shop at your local gift shop. However, you can create a unique baby shower that everyone will love and that is easy on your budget without stepping foot in a store.

Before you begin, decide how much you can spend on the baby shower so you won’t go over budget. The best way to save money is to go with a theme. When you go with a theme you follow one pattern so you end up saving more money then if you just went out and bought pink and blue items.

Everyone looks forward to the laughs at the baby shower games. They are supposed to be fun. The more creative you are with baby shower games, the more laughs you will get.

Measure Mommy’s Belly

This is one of the most fun games because it has everyone guessing how big mommy’s belly is. Pass around a roll or two of toilet paper or some yarn. Have everyone cut or tear off the length it will take to go around mommy’s belly. Everyone must sit down in their chair to do this. Once everyone has their total estimate in toilet paper or yarn, the measuring can begin.

Now, have mommy stand up while everyone takes turns coming up to see if their number of toilet paper squares or yarn was the right amount. You may have more than one person guess right so make sure you buy extra baby shower favors to give out to the winners for this game.

Guess the Food

A mommy-to-be will see countless jars of baby food after her new baby becomes old enough to begin eating baby food. But will she recognize each food without the label? The next game will consist of full baby food jars without labels.

First, you need about ten different jars of baby food. For example, peas, carrots, peaches, sweet potatoes, green beans and squash. You can also throw some dessert into the mix. As you take the labels off of each jar place a number on the bottom of the jar and the same number on the label. On a piece of paper, you can list the name of each jar by number.

Each participant should be given a piece of paper and pen or pencil to write down their answers as they look at each jar.

Pass the jars around one at a time, allowing each participant to look at the food and smell it before passing the jar onto the next participant. As they identify the jars of food they write the answers down.

The participant that gets the most right will win the prize.

Draw a Baby Face

If you want to really make your guests laugh have everyone draw a face.

First, pass out paper plates and crayons to everyone. Have all participants place the paper plates on the top of their heads and draw a baby face on their plates. Time the participants for one minute. When the time is up have everyone display their drawings on a table and let the mommy-to-be judge the pictures and choose a winner.
