Baby Shower the Price is Right Game
The price is right game
Bring out your inner Game Show Hostess with this paper and pencil game. The premise is simple: do your guests know how much it costs to bring up baby today?
Buy enough sheets for each guest, along with a few extra. Make sure that you have enough pens and pencils for each player. Also, make sure that they have a firm surface to write on. If some of your guests are not seated at a table, make sure that you have some clip boards to make their lives easier.
Also, it is important for you to do your homework and make sure that you have the proper price for each item in your area. So, go around to at least three different stores and list the prices for each item from each of the stores. Add up all three prices for each item and divide that number by three to get the average cost in your area.
Tell your guests which stores you “shopped” at to find your averages for each item. To keep the game on track, set a timer for a minute or so and ask your guests to write down what down what they think each item will cost in the grocery store.
There are two ways to score this game. If you want to have a game with lots of chances for guest to win small prizes, then read off each “average” price and offer a guest a prize for the closest answer. If you only want a single winner, you can add up the total average cost and offer a prize to the guest whose total comes closest to your own.
Whether or not you count answers that are close but go over your amount is completely up to you.
