Stork parties, or baby showers, are a fun and exciting time in the life of an expecting mother and her peers. With the inclusion of the right, exciting party games, a shower becomes a memorable event among the attendees. There is an abundance of shower games available, from fun contests that can be held with few or no additional supplies to board and other baby-themed games available for purchase.
To keep with the theme and get the guests thinking, use series of word and word association games. Set a timer and have each guest compete. Create anagrams using baby-themed words like "diaper pin," "motherhood," "pacifier" and "baby formula." The guest who can make the most other words from these wins. Have guests name baby animals, such as cubs for lions, calves for cows, kids for goats and so on. Alliteration and rhyming games based on the baby's name or other baby-themed words also are fun. If the baby will be named Stan, have guests list either all of the swords they can or all of the words ending in -an that they know.
A number of baby-themed original games, as well as new games based on classic party games, are available for purchase. These include "Pin the Bundle on the Stork," memory games and other card games played with cards that depict babies and baby-related themes. Play Bingo with cards full of words about babies and parenthood instead of letters and numbers, or charades with words like "grandma," "labor" and "sleepless nights." Add to the fun by keeping score with coloured pens, paper and pencils decorated in a baby shower theme.
Ask the guests to guess facts about the mother and father, such as how old they were when they met. If the baby's name hasn't been announced, this can also be the subject of a guessing game. Pass unlabeled baby food around and have the guests guess the flavour, using similarly-coloured foods to add to the challenge.
