Here's a mind blowing baby shower game idea that will appeal to the practical jokesters or tricksters among you. The great thing about this game is that you don't have to have a lot of supplies, it doesn't take a long to play so your guests won't get bored with it and we got a HUGE laugh out of it at a shower that I recently attended.

There really aren't many rules to abide by and you will have to do a little planning ahead of time but it's still an easy and fun game to play.

Before the guests arrive, load a tray or fill a basket with baby stuff that are in your baby shower theme or to match the colors of your baby shower decorations. You might buy some small items to present to the guest of honor at the end of the game (whether she actually wins or not).

When it's time for the baby shower games, choose one of the guests or one of your co-hostesses and have them walk from guest to guest showing them the items on the tray instructing them to study it and giving them a minute or so to do so. After each guest has had an opportunity to study the items on the tray, then have the person who is in charge of the to leave the room.

After she is safely out of sight of the guests, you will then pass out paper and pencils and instruct everyone to write down in detail what the person with the tray was wearing including jewelry, hair ornaments and eyewear.

It's so much fun to see how surprised everyone is when they are not asked to make a list of the baby stuff that they were told to study! The look on their astonished faces is totally hilarious because they were so busy committing all the items on the trait to memory that they completely neglect to look at anything else!

This baby shower game idea is a good one to play at co-ed showers because it's so funny to see the guys try to describe what the lady was wearing in their own words.
