Picking a Baby Shower Nursery Rhyme Game to Fit Your Shower
Finding the right baby shower nursery rhyme game for the shower you are hosting just takes a little time and planning. Here are some things you need to take into consideration.
Matching the Theme
If you have a general baby shower theme like “it’s a boy,” any baby shower nursery rhyme game would be fine to use. If you have a more specific theme like monkeys or ducks, it is more fun to use a game that is in keeping with the theme. Try to find nursery rhymes that are monkey or duck based. You will often need to create your own game for this since it will likely be difficult to find pre-made ones. You can do a fill-in-the-blank game where people fill in the blanks for a nursery rhyme. You can also find songs to download from an online service and have people either yell out the name of the song or write it down when you play a snippet of it.
Consider Your Guest List
As with many things for a baby shower, it is important to consider who is on you guest list. There may be a baby shower nursery rhyme game that not all of your guests will feel comfortable doing. Word scrambles or “name that nursery rhyme” can work well for a guest list that does not know each other well. These are nursery rhyme games that can be played individually rather than as a group. Party supply stores or online retailers often have games like this available. If you have the time, you can also create your own. Mixing up the title of a nursery rhyme is an easy way to create a word scramble. For “name that nursery rhyme,” you will need to come up with a sentence or two that describes the nursery rhyme without making it too easy.
Consider how much time you have available to play baby shower games and think about how long the game you are planning will take. After you decide on a baby shower nursery rhyme game, you may want to ask a friend to do the game and to time how long it takes them. This works best if it is a game that people will complete on their own. If you are doing an interactive game like “guess the nursery rhyme song,” time how long it takes you to play snippets of each song. Then add in time for people to write down or yell out their guess.
