Creative Baby Shower Activities (That Aren’t Games)
Cheesy games are just as traditional as the baby showers themselves, but if you’d rather avoid the awkwardness, feel free to make your own traditions. In fact, your baby shower doesn’t necessarily have to have an itinerary. It can simply be a fun time to socialize with friends and family, have a few mocktails, and try a few non-game activities that are genuinely enjoyable. Just don’t forget to pick up the party supplies you’ll need, like table linens, rental china, and extra chairs.
A newborn’s layette is the first wardrobe he or she will wear, though the term is also used to refer to linens, burp cloths, bibs, and toiletries. Buy packs of plain white onesies, burp towels, and bibs, or ask every guest to bring a couple of items in various sizes. Supply guests with fabric paint, and have everyone decorate the baby’s clothes.
Freezer meals are a lifesaver for new moms, but it’s tough to find the time to make and freeze meals when the due date is rapidly approaching. Consult the mom-to-be about family favorites, and find out about the ingredients the family prefers to avoid. Ask guests to pitch in to prepare a bunch of freezer meals. Some baby shower organizers also like to do this with homemade baby food. Since the baby won’t start on solid food for quite a while, make sure all homemade baby food is safely canned.
Ask each guest to bring a pack of diapers to exchange for a raffle ticket . Each additional pack of diapers they bring for the mom-to-be will get them an extra raffle ticket. Toward the end of the baby shower, draw the winning raffle ticket and hand out a prize.
