Nursery rhyme game
Test your guests’ knowledge of traditional nursery rhymes with this fun game. It may seem simple, but it’s harder than it looks. More and more, children are growing up without hearing traditional nursery rhymes, so some of these are hard. On the other hand, this is one of those games where some of your older guests will have an advantage.
So it’s nice to include a game like this in any multi-generational baby shower.
Buy enough game sheets for every guest with a few set aside in case extra people show up. Also make sure that you have plenty of pens or pencils handy as well as clipboards or other firm writing surfaces for anyone not sitting at a table.
There are two ways to play this game. You can leave the time open ended. This version allows you to award a prize to whoever fills in all the blanks correctly first. This can be a lot of fun, but it might also throw your shower off schedule if you are on a tight time frame. One of the advantages is that you will, in all likelihood, have only a single winner.
If you are pressed for time, there is another way to play. You can also set a timer for a specific number of minutes, usually one or two minutes. Give your guests a close-to-end warning. At the end of the time, ask who has all the blanks filled in. Check all the correct answers with the group. Whoever has the most correct answer wins the game and gets a prize. This version is far more likely to result in several winners. So be prepared with several small prizes.
