  • About 2-3 games is don't want to over-do it! You don't have to do games at all but it's fun to have something to do. We always found cute things for prizes at the dollar stores. Sometimes we gave things away nidividually and sometimes we made baskets.

  • i think baby showers would be boring without games. what else r they supposed to do here ur gifts see ya later? (no pun intended) but i would seggest at least a couple. man i can think of lots! lol. i think a really fun one is pins on the shirt for two reason. pins on the right side for your cant say the word baby. and pins onthe other you cant cross your legs! lol. of c ourse the famous yarn game. but if u dont have alot of money just go to clearance isle at meijers or even the dollar store n get soem pretty candles, or burning oil, the presents r usually only for girls anyway so think of girlie items. :) hope it helps GL

  • At the last shower I had, I really enjoyed doing the string/ribbon game. Each person measures out how much ribbon/string/yarn would fit around the pregnant gal's waist! It is soooo hysterical. I really thought someone was going to get something thrown at them! There was some BIG guesses. After everyone has their piece of ribbon/string/yarn, they get to bring it up and measure it around the pregnant gal's waist. The person who is the closest wins. I got candles, bath and body, stuff like that for gifts. We also played the clothes pin game, everyone takes a clothes pin and if you can make someone say "BABY" you get to steal their clothes pin! The person with the most clothes pins wins! We also bought Baby Shower Bingo at a Party Store.
    Good Luck!

  • i just hosted a baby shower and we thought of a fun game and a way to start a piggy bank
    the guess puts money in a bottle or pig.. something thats clear
    and you wait until the last game and have everyone guess the amount of money in there
    and tell the winner gets "all" but you'll have to get the "all washing detergent
    everyone laughed it was real nice and funny!!
    and we played about 5 6 games depends on how many people goin to be there
    and the age group of the winners like body was, candles, fames, house things!..
    but good luck hope you have fun!
