Candy guessing game ideas.

Looking for a get acquainted shower game?  To encourage mingling early, set up a container filled with candy near the entrance.  As guests write down their best guess as to how many candies are in the jar, conversation is inevitable.  The closest number to the correct amounts wins.  Tip:  Before guests arrive, count the candies and write it down.  Then, when it's time for the big reveal you don't have the added pressure of remembering how many.

Don't say baby baby shower game.

Play starts as soon as guests arrive.  Some players will lose almost immediately (try not saying baby at a baby shower), but one will outlast them all.  Warning:  As each person forgets and says the forbidden word, everyone is bound to laugh and enjoy their loss.

Cotton ball baby shower game.

When a baby shower game is as much fun to watch as it is to play, you've got a winner...take this cotton ball game for example.  Here's what you will need:

2 large bowls - one filled with cotton balls and one empty

1 large kitchen spoon

1 blindfold

With a large kitchen spoon, each player attempts to transfer as many cotton balls as possible into the empty bowl...in one minute and blindfolded.  The challenge for the player is that because the cotton balls are so light, it's impossible to tell if any are actually making into the bowl.  Onlookers may well be watching the player dip air into a bowl lol.  The player who transfers the most cotton balls wins.

Dress up the bowls and spoon by adding decorative elements...
ribbon, stickers, or choosing colors that match the shower theme.
