While you're lounging in your pjs and snacking on pizza, prolong the girl time by playing some fun (not corny) baby games. Make it worth the ladies' while actually presenting the winner with a bottle of champagne or gift certificate for a mani/pedi.
To see what games I like to play at showers,
- Guess the Belly Size: Bring a spool of yarn or twine and a pair of scissors. Everyone takes a shot at guessing how big the mama–to–be's belly is and cuts their piece. When all the guests have snipped their string, you measure the expectant belly and compare the strings. Whoever guesses closest to the real measurement wins.
- Blushing Baby Moments: Pass out a piece of paper and pen to each guest. Everyone must write their most embarrassing childhood moment down on the slip and fold it in half. Once all are complete, collect them in a basket. The mama of honor must read them aloud and then try to guess which story belongs to whom.
- Betting Time: Not so much a game, ask guests to guess the sex, weight, date and length of the baby on one piece of paper. The grid is a fun keepsake for baby's book.
