At my baby shower we played this game where some of the guests (like 5) had a race to finish juice out of a bottle. It was pretty entertaining. Just a tip- It is pretty difficult, you havfe to suck pretty hard so don’t fill the bottle all the way.

I went to a baby shower where we had to sample baby food and guess what kind.  Also they mashed up different kinds of chocolate candy bars in diapers and we had to guess which kind.

I remember going to a shower as a kid where we all cut a piece of ribbon (think curling ribbon) at the length we thought would fit around mom’s tummy.  It was really entertaining.  Whoever’s guess was closest won.

Probably works best if the shower is in month 8 where the mom is really showing.

Also have to make sure the mom isn’t self concious about this!

My sister-in-law is planning the same theme, not to discourage you from using the theme though.

For dessert, we’re using marshmallow peeps on cupcakes. I know they’re chicks and not ducks, but close enough.

Is your Maid/Matron of Honor comfortable with games that put attention on her? If so, then games such as trying to guess how big the mother-to-be’s stomach are okay.

I do not like attention, so I e-mailed my SIL a list of games I’m okay with.

Here’s one I like. I took it straight from a website I found.

Don’t say “Baby”

When the guests arrive, give each a clothespin to wear. Tell each guest that they can’t say the word “BABY”. If a guest catches someone saying “BABY”, they may take the clothespin away from them. If, for example, a guest has 3 pins from previously taking them away from others and somone catches her saying “BABY” then that guest now gets to take all 3 of her pins. The person with the most clothespins at the end of the shower wins the game. -SUBMITTED BY Kelly Walker, Pennsylvania

Another Twist to this game is to wear necklaces with pacifiers tied to it. Purchase the translucent plastic pacifiers and coordinating colored soft satin string from BabyBingo.com – you can specify the colors (blue, pink, yellow (new!) or white string — blue, pink, yellow or clear plastic pacifiers — or an assortment of all colors!
