Good Night, Little Baby
(rename it with the Baby's name)
This game helps to bring the shower to a close so play it
when it's time for the guests to leave.
Using a very, very long piece of ribbon, ask the Mommy to
place a mini baby bottle on the end of the ribbon and begin
rolling it up in the ribbon. She continues until all the ribbon
is gone and there is one big ball. Ask all the guests to stand
and form a circle. The Mommy and the Ribbon Bottle Ball step
into the middle of the inner circle.. The ball is handed to
one guest who is asked to hold the end of the ribbon. The
Mommy begins to unroll the ball as she passes in front of
each guest. When the ribbon is finally unrolled and the baby
bottle is found, then that guest is the next to be pregnant!
...easy, fun, simple -- gets the guests mingling
Before the party, put a puzzle together. Then select pairs
of two puzzle pieces that fit/match each other from different
areas of the puzzle. After all the pairs have been selected,
take them apart and put all the pieces into a bowl for the
guests to select one puzzle piece upon arrival. Leave the
puzzle youve put together on a table so that as guess
match up, they can put those pieces into the puzzle. Game
is over when the puzzle is finished.
Cut each shape in half, planning on one shape for every
two guests. Shapes include baby bottle, rattle, diaper,
square, hexagon, circle, rectangle, pyramid, oval, thin
strip, thick strip. The same shape can be used if the colors
are different, for instance, red square, blue square, yellow

On separate pieces of paper, write names of pairs -- such
as Charlie Brown and Snoopy; Garfield and Odie; Mickey Mouse
and Minnie Mouse; Daisy Duck and Donald Duck; Dick Tracy
and Tess; Blondie and Dagwood; Superman and Lois, etc.
Ice Breakers ideas
Homemade Baby Food
Making your own baby food gives you the distinct advantage of controlling what goes into your baby's sensitive tummy. You determine how much, if any, sugar and spices your baby gets. Even when found on sale for as low as 50 cents per jar, producing your own is a much less expensive alternative to ready made. Making baby food is actually very simple with a few simple tools: a blender, food processor, baby food grinder or similar machine, a steamer or boiling pot, ice cube trays, and a few minutes of your time.
