Every Baby Shower Needs Great Baby Shower Games!

Games for a baby shower help the baby shower hostess make sure that all guests feel at ease.

In most cases, only the mother-to-be knows all the invited guests, so the introductions as well as conversation starters are the responsibility of the hostess.

Babyshower games are a popular way to break the ice and give people a reason to mingle and talk to others, especially the people they don't know.

When games for a babyshower are introduced and managed well they make the guests want to stay longer. They also give the expectant mother a little stress-free fun and enjoyment ? which is something she really needs at this stage of her pregnancy.

As a hostess you should be creative with the baby shower party games and select games that are age appropriate. More than likely your attendees have been to many other baby showers and they will find it a little boring, if the same old babyshower party games are played.

It's best to reward the winners with small prizes. Your prizes don't need to be expensive. Some good choices would be a fancy bar of soap, candles, manicure set, picture frame, decorative notepaper, cookie cutters etc.

When planning the number of games to include, the general rule of thumb is to have three games planned for a two-hour baby shower. This leaves plenty of time for baby shower gifts, serving a meal or appetizers, getting to know each other and sharing time with the expectant mother.
