A gender reveal baby shower is a great way to play fun and original games that will provide a fun opportunity to incorporate the theme of the shower into the day.
When people think about baby shower games there are the old standards that we’ve all played. Isn’t it time for something different?
If you are planning to celebrate a gender reveal then you need to embrace some of the aspects that make it unique.
Those aspects are among other things the games that you and your guests will be playing.
And if you’re afraid that they will be silly, well, aren’t all baby shower games?
One of the aspects that make gender reveal games so fun is the fact that they are unique.
What they means is that you don’t have to fall back on the time worn games that everybody knows.
You can focus on things that relate to the whole theme of the shower. These can be in different forms.
One of the most enjoyable ones is to make it about guessing. Sometimes this is translated to betting, but not everyone is comfortable with this style.
Let’s look at a couple of examples.
This is a spin on the classic guessing game that people have played for centuries. However, it is unlikely that they will have played it like this.
Instead of guessing who, the guests will be asked to guess what. You can combine this with cute little mustaches and lips. These can be found at most baby shower stores.
These accessories are simply little sticks with lips or mustaches affixed to them. The guest will hold the one that they believe the child’s gender to be in front of their mouth. Everyone that guess correctly will be given a prize.
Of course the lips are for little girl’s and the mustaches are for boys.
One variation on this is to add a betting aspect.
Your guests will be asked over the course of the party to place a “bet” on the gender of the child. The gender will be officially announced at the end of the party and winners will be awarded their prize.
Nobody is expect to bet that doesn’t want to. Nor do they actually wager money. It is much like the first option, with them choosing a gender, when they are right they will be given a small gift.
The only difference here is that they are asked to guess in advance and the winners are announced at the end of th party.
A nice aspects of this style is that it encourages your guests to spend the majority of the time at the shower.
