If you are planning a baby shower, either for yourself or a good friend be sure to include a few games to break the ice, and get everyone chatting and enjoying the special day together. Our baby shower games range from sweet to silly and are all free to download. As showers are a great opportunity to get all the girls together why not add a Butler in the Buff to serve the brunch or help with the games and activities!
Baby Shower Games: Bobbing for Nipples
Fill a large tub with water and drop in some baby bottle nipples. Each guest must try and grab one with their teeth-a funny twist on the traditional apple bobbing and will cause some giggles amongst the onlookers!
Mum's the word when it comes to saying 'baby'! Get this great icebreaker started the moment your guests walk through the door. As you greet each guest, give each a diaper pin to wear on his or her shirt. Once all of your guests have arrived, tell everyone that they can't say 'baby' for the duration of the shower (or until it's time to open presents). If anyone hears someone else saying the forbidden word, he or she can steal the rule breaker's pin. At the end of the game, the person with the most pins wins a gift.
Keep guests guessing with this practical game. Put at least ten common, useful baby items inside a diaper bag; a bib, teething ring, rattle, bottle and diaper are just a few goodies that are also fairly inexpensive. Give each guest a pen and paper before passing the diaper bag around. Without looking, each person should stick a hand inside the bag and identify as many items as possible. Give each two minutes to feel around and make their guesses before moving the bag to the next person. Once everyone has had a turn, find out who had the most correct answers. The winner gets a prize and the parents-to-be get the diaper bag filled with baby essentials!
Get a lil' crafty at your baby shower with this creative idea. Buy enough onesies (multiple sizes to get through the first year or so) to give one to each guest. Stretch each across a piece of cardboard and pass them out at the shower along with fabric paint and miscellaneous baby-safe decorative details. Then, invite everyone to tap into their creative sides by painting a onesie masterpiece designed specifically for the bundle of joy.
As you send out invitations to the shower ask all guests to bring along a picture of themselves as babies! On arrival assign a number to each picture and post it up onto a cork board or poster. Have each party goer guess which picture corresponds to each guest. After everyone is finished cooing over the photos, give a prize to the person with the most matches!
1) Try not to over think your planned activities. The best games are the ones that are simple-traditional games can acquire a cheeky twist when a Butler in the Buff is on hand to help out!
2) Have your games work with the decor or theme of the party. There is a wealth of inspiration on Pinterest. Invite your friends and collect ideas on a shared board for a fun way to plan and get everyone involved before the party.
3) Butlers in the Buff make the perfect ice breaker! Have your Butler in the Buff announce the games, read off instructions and hand out materials. He’ll serve up the brunch or afternoon tea too!
4) Use your Butler for icebreaker activities like post it note games that find commonalities among the guests or a treasure hunt based on baby themes.
