Baby Shower Games That Don’t Suck

Baby showers are a time for celebration, camaraderie and sharing in love for the mom-to-be and her soon to arrive bundle of joy. Age old tradition dictates that showers must include an assortment of games to keep the guests occupied while they wait for gifts to be opened.

As you start your planning, think about what guests will be in attendance and what they will enjoy the most. A couples shower may call for more hands-on games while a group with the new mom, grandma, and aunts may be better suited to games that take place on paper.
