Here is a partial list of advice topics that the guests can write about.
How to: stop the baby from crying, change a diaper, have a social life once the baby is born, stop a temper tantrum, throw your baby’s first birthday party, get your baby to sleep, feed your baby, wean your baby, breastfeed your baby, transport a stroller, stop the baby from sucking his/her thumb, bathe the baby, cut the baby’s hair, clip the baby’s nails, bond with the baby, make the baby laugh, potty train the baby, have some peace and quiet.
Have you ever…
How much of each other’s childhoods do your guests know? Learn new things about each other with this informative and entertaining game! Give each person a list of childhood experiences along with a line next to each. Under 3 minutes, the guests have to ask one another if they have ever done any of the things listed on the sheet. Each sheet cannot have the same person’s name on it more than once, even if they have done more than one thing on the list. This will encourage your guests to interact with as many people in the room as possible. The person who gets the most names signed reads their list and wins a prize!
Save the sheets for the mom-to-be. She’s bound to find something interesting about her guests that she may have never known!
Some ideas of experiences include: never learned to swim, owned a horse, had an imaginary friend, wasn’t born in a hospital, wore glasses, had a job under the age of 16, born outside of this country.
Gather the “my first…” prediction cards, advice cards, “have you ever…” sheets and the baby shower invitations and present them to the mom-to-be in a memory box or scrapbook. Either way, she’ll appreciate the best baby shower gift — the memories of the day itself!
