The time seems to be getting ahead of me again because I can't seem to keep up. I have a million and one things going on from crafts, to decorating, organizing, potty training and the list goes on. For those of you anxiously and patiently waiting for the baby doll bed tutorial, it should be up by Black Friday. And of course, following that will be a heap load of Christmas goodies we have been brewing the past few days.
But to back track a little, I didn't fully get to share all I wanted to about the baby shower. I really really wanted to share this fun and easy game my friend Jen put together. I have never played this one, but it was a big hit! It is your basic matching memory game. You go in a circle one person after the other, to try to match two pregnancy related words. The fun part for everyone was trying to guess the prize for the word. For example, when someone found water breaking they were rewarded Gushers [gross I know]. Or breastfeeding was the Milka bar. This was also a neat little game because I think everyone walked away with a little gift.
And of course we played the dirty diaper game where you melt candy into the diapers and you try to guess what candy is inside. It grosses me out but it was a hoot.
And thanks to Pinterest for providing this fun little activity. We set out some diapers for everyone to write on and people got pretty creative. This would have made changing diapers so much more fun at 2am.
And instead of a guest book, I screen printed Nadia's name onto a onsie and everyone signed it. To get the name on the onsie, use the Freezer Paper Stencil tutorial. I thought this was a little more special and if she ever decided to make a Baby Clothes quilt, this would be a perfect addition.
So it was an afternoon full of food, fun, and games! You can find more games and ideas on our pinspiration board HERE.
