What are you favorite baby shower games?

My good friend will find out the sex of her baby (with luck) in mid-January. I want to throw her a baby shower. It will be the first baby shower I have thrown. I will be the baby's Godmother, and I'm super excited! What are your favorite ideas for baby shower games? You are welcome to include any other ideas for the baby shower such as for the cake, gifts, or decorations. :) Thanks!

  • I had everyone bring a baby picture and then posted it on a board with numbers. You had to match the person with their baby picture.

    PLEASE no string around the belly of mom. I've seen way to many mom's embrassed by this. Instead throw them a curve. Before you get there put a string around daddy's belly and cut to size. You tell everyone to cut a piece of yarn to the size they think will go around the PARENTS belly. When everyone has cut their string THEN inform them that it's whoever is closest to the dad's belly.

  • I like the decorate a onesie. I also like throne where you had out papers that ask whoes physical features and personality the mother wants the baby to have hers or his. Like eyes, smile, laughter, worth ethic, humor and so on. Then the mom gives her answers and who ever gets the most wins.

  • Buy about a dozen jars of different flavor babyfood. Write numbers on the lids and take the labels off. Everyone has to guess what's in each jar by color only (and keep the answer key for the mom so she can use them later).

  • also did a ..."can not say the word" game
    this works for people who do not even like games- they say word right away then they do not bother with it

    when people first show up, pin a diaper pin to them (or we found eaiser to make a necklace with a baby item on it, yarn with pacifier works)
    when all have arrived, tell rules
    can not say...BABY
    can add more... like mom to be's name, or girl or boy if gender known
    when someone says that work, whomever catching it first gets that necklace, and so on
    if you have gotten three necklaces and say the word- the person who cathes you gets all three
    who ever has most and a certain time (hour before the end of party) gets a gift
    it can be fun, and allows people to mingle and not have to PLAY
