“Postage Paid” Baby Shower Raffle

Buy “Thank you” cards for mommy-to-be to use after the baby shower. Set up a small table or area where you can place the stack of “postage paid” envelopes from the cards. Supply some pens and a large bowl or bucket as well. As each guests arrive have them put their name and address on one of the stamped envelopes and place it in the bowl.

During the event (or at the end) mix up all the envelopes in the bowl and pull a winner for a door prize.

After the party present the guest-of-honor with the thank you cards and the stamped, addressed envelopes. This is a great way to have a door prize raffle that also give a gift that is much more appreciated than you would think.

Note: You can place stamps on the envelopes after the raffle in case a guest messes up while writing you won’t lose the stamp. Just make sure to place the stamps on the envelopes before presenting them to the mother-to-be as a gift.

My Water Broke! Ice Cube Game

Get some ice trays that are designed for larger ice cubes than the regular size. Also buy small plastic babies that would fit inside each ice cube slot, you can usually find these at any party store. Place one plastic baby in each ice cube slot and then fill the tray with water. Make sure you have as many ice cube babies as you have guests and some extras as well. Put the ice trays in the freezer so you will have frozen ice cubed babies.

At the beginning of the shower put one ice cube each in a cup of water and hand one to each guest. As the ice melts the baby will slowly be revealed. When the ice is fully melted and the baby is free floating the player yells “My Water Broke!”

The guest who’s “water breaks” first and the baby is born wins the game! For twins you can use two babies per cube, or two cubes per guest.

This is a game of pure chance so it works really well to break the ice – no pun intended. A perfect door prize game to hand out random prizes, too.

Guess How Many

Get a few dozen pacifiers and a big see-through container like a novelty sized feeding bottle. You can also use a jar filled with jelly beans, Hershey kisses, gumballs, or even pacifier shaped sweet tarts. Fill the container with as many pacifiers/candy as you possibly can. Make sure you count the number of pacifiers/candy as you put them in. As guests arrive ask them to look at the bottle and write on a slip of paper their name and how many items they think are inside. The guest who comes closest to the actually number wins!

If you place some pacifiers with the caps on, some without and other with the packaging it can be quite difficult to guess how many are actually inside the bottle.

Guests can then buy as many raffle tickets as they want with baby products like diapers, formula, bottles and bibs. Some guests will end up with 1 or 2 tickets, other guests may end up with 10 or more tickets, but the mom-to-be will walk away the winner with all her soon-to-be much needed baby supplies.

Baby Betting

Make a list of factual information related to the baby’s current status and conception. You can include date of conception, baby’s approximate current weight, gender of the baby, due date and similar things. A list of 5 things should be plenty; more if you have a lot of guests.

You can easily take the bets as people arrive to get things going and keep things lively while you wait for all the guests to show up. After everyone has arrived and placed their “bets” the mother to be gives away the answers and declares the winners. Award prizes to the winners based on who had the most and closest answers.
