Ridiculous Baby Shower Games Slideshow
Don’t Say "Baby"
I think we had a rule like this in a drinking game once but the basic idea is that at a baby shower, decked out in Welcome Baby! balloons and streamers, where guests bring all these baby gifts, you cant say well, Im not even going to say it. Why? Because those are the rules. And Im a winner.
Guess the Baby Item
This premise is pretty straightforward: You stick your hands in a bag, feel around for some bottles and pacifiers, and tell everyone what you think is inside. While it might be good practice for when Mom has to dig around a dark diaper bag for a rattle while balancing baby, cellphone, and purse with one hand, isn't she allowed a little baby product-free time? Perhaps a more realistic game would be to have everyone take off their shoes and see which baby products would hurt the most to step on now that's something (unfortunately) all parents will have to get used to.
How many diapers does a single baby use in a year? Don't tell me. Really, don't.
Breaking the Ice
One game suggests that you freeze some tiny plastic babies (Don't know where to find them? At the plastic baby-buying, er, craft store, naturally) in ice cubes and hand one in a cup to each guest. The idea is to have them hold it during the party, and the first with an ice-free baby to call out, "My water broke!" is the winner. So this is what labor will be like: Warming up an ice cube in my hands in hopes of freeing my poor, trapped plastic child inside. What do people need epidurals for?
Sniffing Baby Diapers
Why would you ruin a perfectly good chocolate bar by melting it in the microwave, smearing it on a disposable diaper, and forcing your guests to stick their nose in baby poop in the name of woman-to-woman bonding? Moreover, why would you ruin a perfectly good diaper? Mom and Dad are going to be needing those and they are expensive!
