Newborn Baby shower parties made colorful with lots of fun games!The Laughing Giraffe ® team include members who are happy parents who have thrown Baby Shower parties for their newborns. We understand that you want to create the best, most memorable Baby Shower party for your newborn.
Color any customized images that party guests can color in like a coloring book. It's always fun to get crazy with the choice of images, but some people seem to prefer to use images that relate to the theme of the party. Not everyone can draw well or is even creative. This way you color the designs!
This is a great way to get guests having fun to personalize the baby NEWBORN Clothing Blanks.
GUESTS DRAWING DESIGNS THEMSELVES:
- Use plain white or colored onesies and place a cardboard inside to avoid any leak ink on the back.
- Use non-toxic decorative non-permanent paints. Hand them out to each guest so they can get creative with different designs.
- For non-artists, they can sign it and put personal messages in them. It makes for a very special collection of clothes that make for great souvenirs.
- Try and use all sizes so that baby do not just have 0-3 months but a great wardrobe till 24 months.
NO MORE GUESSING WHO ATTENDED BABY SHOWER?
This is also a perfect activity for party where kids can participate along with their parents. You can also do this bibs, blanket, and t-shirts.
Other ideas for a success and memorable baby shower:
- A stuffed animal is an inevitable part of baby shower gift-giving. Spice it up by putting a onesie or a t-shirt on the cute animal with a special message and liven up the gift instantly. Not only will it make the gift more fun, but the baby can use the clothes later.
- Instead of traditional wrapping paper, use a receiving blanket and a safety pin to make gifts extra special
- Step away from the brown bags. Take a large square of paper or plastic (you can also use plastic bags with tissue paper to add color), place the goodies in the middle, and put inside a onesie, sleeper gown, or t-shirt. Tie the top with a colorful bow, and you got a memorable party favor.
- Using some balloons and baby beanie hats! Place a baby beanie on a balloon with helium in it. Make sure the balloon is the right size for the beanie hat, then draw a face on the balloon to make it look like a baby. This is also something the guests can participate in. You can add a fun twist by placing them in chairs around the table.
- Use bib as a setting maker. You can decorate them as you like, or simply write the name of an individual and hang it on a chair or place it over their serving plates.
- Instead of dinner napkins, use bibs or burp clothes. You can also wrap silverware with them, and add a decorative tie. It's a fun way to bring a baby theme to the table, as well as a fun souvenir for the guests. Personalize it with the date or your favorite work.
Celebrate baby's arrival with games that are cheesy, ridiculous, and sentimental — all at once.
1. Race to Water Break
Everyone puts one of these baby-filled ice cubes in their drink. Whoever's melts first, wins!
2. Guess the Baby Photo
Have everyone bring a baby photo and try to figure out who's who.
3. Name the Baby Animal
Write down a list of animals and see who can guess the terms used for their young. Did you know a baby kangaroo is a joey?
4. Guess the Baby Food
Gather up a few unusually flavored baby foods (ham and pineapple puree, anyone?) and have guests perform a taste test.
5. Name That Poo
Nasty, but a classic. Melt different types of chocolate bars (caramel, nuts, etc.) in baby diapers and have guests guess which is which- or have them race to devour their diaper first.
6. Playdough Babies
Have guests flex their sculpting skills by making play do babies. Give prizes for categorizes such as most anatomically correct, creepiest, funniest, and best overall.
7. Bobbing for Nipples
Like the apple version but with the tops of baby bottles instead.
8. Bottle Chugging
Fill baby bottles with your drink of choice. Make it a bit more fun for non-pregnant guests by adding some booze, then have guests race to chug them down.
9 Diaper Messages
A gift that'll make the mom-to-be's endless changing sessions a bit easier to bear: have guests write funny messages on a bunch of diapers.
10. Don't Say Baby
Challenge guests to not say the word "baby". If someone slips, they must give up their clip (or bow tie, or whatever). Whoever holds out the longest gets a prize. Babies come with a whole lot of stuff. See who's best at guessing the cost of it all.
11. Onesie Decorating
Set up a onesie decorating station. Having cute iron-ons already prepared ensures that even non-crafty guests can participate.
12. Measure Mom's Belly
Have guests cut pieces of yarn to a length they think corresponds to the circumference of the mom-to-be's belly. Might as well have fun with the one time it's OK to comment on a woman's growing waistline.
13. Baby Bingo
In this spin on the classic, guests score when a gift they've predicted (nursing bra, hooded towel, Diaper Genie) is opened.
14. Animal Gestation Period
See who can guess the length of different animals' gestation periods.
15. Baby Face
Blow up photos of mom and dad (and other relatives if you'd like) and cut them into strips so guests can rearrange them to see what baby may look like. The results are equal parts funny and creepy.
16. Advice Book
Have guests write down their words of wisdom on notecards or pieces of paper, and store them in pretty envelopes or a notebook for the mom-to-be.
17. Baby Top 40
Set a timer and see which guest can write down the most songs featuring the word "baby."
18. Name That Baby
Have guests write down their first or middle name suggestions for mom to read aloud. Everyone has baby name opinions, and she may get some good ideas!
