I'm giving a shower in May and the mom has expressed a preference for no silly, goofy games. (like "guess what baby food is smeared in the diaper", "guess the size of mom's belly", "pin the sperm on the egg" etc) I tend to agree, but am not sure how a "no game" shower will go over. They really just want food and fellowship. :thumbsup:
Do you know of any simple games that might be more in good taste?
Why don't you do word games?
Like a word find with baby things (crib, bottle, diaper, etc.)
Or word scrambles: tloslrer=stroller, etc.
Or a baby name game
and have all the woman write a little bit of advice on a piece of paper, with the caveat that the new mom doesn't have to take any of it. :p
At mine, we played bingo, the hostess had little gifts and every time I opened one, they could mark off that gift (you could do it for the gift that are brought, by making the guests guess what gift are going to be given and filling in the bingo cards themselves).
But mostly at the showers my aunt gives, it is just food, chit chat, and opening the gifts. With the word games.
If it is the culture of the mom and her family, then it really isn't a problem to have gameless showers.
