    I am helping my 14 year old neices have a baby shower for their mom. They have quite the odd theme going on, but it is going to be neat.

    They are hosting a baby luau. The cake is a big beach, with a Hawaiian couple holding a baby standing under a palm tree. They have lei's and margarita glasses, and are serving sliced fruit.

    For games, they have the traditional measure the mom-to-be's belly. The other games they have are "bottle of babies" (a bunch of plastic babies you link together like barrel of monkeys....) and a pineapple bowling game.

    For the bottle of babies game, they have written up that their mom needs to find a sitter, so whoever can "handle the most babies" by linking them together without them falling "wins".

    We're stuck on bowling, tho. How can we work it into a baby shower game?

    Edited...We're experimienting with it and its pretty easy to get a strike. We're thinking maybe if you get a strike, you win a diaper. We'll tape something in one of the diapers, and the person with the "full diaper" wins? Is that completely stupid?

    It's a baby shower. No such thing as entirely stupid. It sounds like fun!

    I love that idea - I bet those nieces are having a lot of fun in planning.

    Maybe instead of taping something in: Pour a small amount of yellow liquid (mt dew or lemonade) on it and smudge peanut butter adding butterscotch chips. Leave it in a hot car for a few hours.

    Though it will be hard to refold and will look rumpled - I know, first have a contest to see who can change a baby doll the fastest. Then hand in all diapers to be earned back so people know why the diapers are rumpled - at that point place the filled diaper in the bunch.

    Gee, are you sure these are 14 yr old girls??? Those are some awesome ideas for games!!

    I think I'll take notes for when easy child has her shower. (she didn't get one the first time around) :D

    Now, where did you get the bottle of babies game??

    And I LOVE the diaper idea!!!

    Oh, and you can have them play "Name that food" game with jars of baby foods. Gives you a whole new appreciation for the screwed up faces our babies give us when they taste it. :rofl:
