I have no idea...I'm not throwing my own baby shower, I'd feel weird about it, like I'm asking for gifts or something.

We did a word scramble and then I think we just did a couple drawings-- everyone who brought diapers got their name entered.. the either won a centerpiece or a little faux potted plant! I wasn't big into games.. it worked out well too because opening presents took FOREVER.. and I was like you Jessica -- super involved with the shower plans.. I think mine was cause I'm a control freak!

In general, I hate shower games - we didn't do them at any of my wedding showers, and I really don't want them at baby showers. That said, I'm not throwing my baby showers (I agree w/ Darci - I would feel like I'm directly asking for presents), but I'll request that we have no games. They just always seem contrived and forced.

IDK. No word of a shower since I was 8 or so weeks along. This is SO's first.

At my last sprinkle I had to bring my minions. So we did an obstacle course with a stroller (lol my double) and some random items you had to swerve around and still keep the dolly in the stroller. Who ever was the fastest won. I think you also had to pick up a 2nd child and put them in the stroller as part of it. Well, the 2 minions decided half way through that they wanted to be the dolls. lol it was funny.

We also did a clay modeling of a baby. That was funny. Some people added diapers and some added anatomy.

i dunno really what the plan is for mine bc we really haven't talked about it other than saying, yeah, probably sometime around late august, early september lol. but one game i thought was super cute was getting a whole bunch of white onsies and some clothing paint and letting everyone design their own to give to the mommy... i think its adorable!!! even if the baby never wears them, its nice to have as a keepsake.

My mom found this game, I think it is super cute Simply Creative Insanity: A Trendy Baby Shower

We have a very competitive family lol so games are almost a must. We also decided on Baby Bingo, and a guess the baby food game, and some memory game.

I am not throwing my own, I agree that it feels like you are asking for gifts. I think the ladies in my office will throw one as they like any reason to party and threw my first shower with my 4th child. We didn't have games at our last one, so I don't think we will again.

What is a "Sprinkle"?

A friend did a game where they took mom and dad's first names and people had to come up with names for baby that were made up of letters in the mom and dad's names.. and you had x amount of time.. that one was fun and suuuuuuper competitive..
