Looking for a fun game for your upcoming
baby shower? Some of the most fun, most memorable games are the
ones that go along with the whole baby theme. In other words, it's
a great idea to have baby-related games at the party. One game that
many women have found especially fun and memorable involves baby
jars and baby food. It's a great game for your baby shower called
"Guess the Goo."
What You'll Need to Prepare
- Buy six types of baby food and four types of
juice. We're not concerned about the quality here, so get the
cheapest possible to spare your budget too much pain.
- Get tape or stickers. Tape will work, but colorful
stickers are a lot more fun.
- Find a utility knife (to cut off labels)
- Get or buy a magic marker.
- Finally, you need a magic marker.
Preparing for the Party
- Put the numbers 1 through 10 on the tape or stickers
and affix one to each lid of the baby food jars.
- Carefully take off the labels (don't want to
give anything away just yet.), and put the corresponding number
on the lid onto the back of the label.
- Now store the labels inside the envelope.
Playing at the Party
- Now you're ready to start the actual game itself.
Have each shower guest, on a piece of paper, guess and write down
what kind of food or juice she believes is in each container.
Give them just enough time for their guesses; don't give them
enough time to drag the party down and make the game boring.
- Once everyone has made their predictions, take
the labels from the envelope and read them to all of the guests.
- Whomever has the most answers correct, wins!
You should have a simple, inexpensive prize to award to the winner.
REMEMBER! The baby food should still be unopened and perfectly
good - re-affix the labels and give them to mommy; baby is probably
hungry after a long day of the shower!
A suggestion: If you want to throw a "trick question"
into the game, consider having one container that doesn't have baby
food at all: tuna fish or pork-and beans or some other adult food.
Here's still one other variation: You might consider calling out
the jar contents one at a time and have the guests raise their hands
as you point at each jar and ask them if they think that jar contains
the product you called out.
