What’s in your purse game
Is your guest of honor prepared to be a parent? Are they ready to carry around the multitude of random objects their baby just won’t seem to be able to live without?
More importantly, does any woman really know what lies at the bottom of her purse?
This game can help your guests find out, and maybe encourage a few to clean out that handbag.
Before the shower, get a number of large clear zipper baggies, gallon size should be large enough. Write each guests’ name at the top of the bag. This will give them a safe place to collect the treasures they need for this game and keep them safe. You can place a game sheet in each bag along with a pen or pencil to keep things organized if you wish. Also determine if pictures on a phone in the purse count or not. That is completely up to you, but you will want to announce your decision for consistency.
To play this game make sure that your guests have a little room to spread out. You want them to be able to remove things from their purse without getting them mixed up with the guest next to them. Hand out the bags and sheets, encouraging them to look in their purses for the desired items.
Ask your guests to record the number and type of items they have it their purses on the game sheet. If you are on a tight time schedule, set a timer for five minutes or less and encourage your guests to stay within that time limit. When they have finished going through their purses, ask your guests to tally up their points and award a prize to the one with the highest number of points.
For prizes, consider one of those tiny “wallet on a string” purses. It would be delightfully ironic.
