Will the baby have Mom’s eyes? Dad’s nose? Everyone will have an opinion after the baby is born. But you and your guests can have a lot of fun trying to predict the baby. That’s where baby prediction games come in so handy.
The sheet gives your guests the opportunity to guess not only what the baby will look like but also when the little bundle of love will arrive. If the parents haven’t already had a gender reveal, you can add that to the prediction list. You can ask for length of labor, length, and weight.
There are several ways to play the game. You can ask each guest to write down their predictions at the shower, then collect the sheets. Save them until the mother goes into labor, then collect the real information. Whoever gets the most predictions correct will receive a little prize after the birth. You can either deliver the prize in person, or send it by mail, whichever is most convenient.
But there is another fun way to play this game. If you have ever played with “MadLibs” books, you know what’s coming. Without explaining what you are doing, simply ask your guests to give you random answers such as a “a length of time,” or “a body part.” Fill in the blanks with the guests answers and then read the “Predictions” to the assembled shower. What mother wouldn’t howl in laughter to hear that she will give birth after ten minutes of labor to a 2-ton baby with her father’s big toe?
Of course, you can also combine the two games, first playing it as a MadLibs games, then asking the guests to make their own, individual predictions.
