Diaper Cake and Baby Shower Games


A quick and cute diaper cake for a friends baby shower. She is doing a bit of a whale theme in the nursery. I found all these cute items for the cake at Target. There are some swaddling blankets, whale wash cloths, a whale bath scrubby, and a teether that looks like a pacifier (complete with clip).

I was also in charge of games for this baby shower. The mom-to-be was an English major in college and loves books, so the first game was “Name that Storybook”. I had a hard time narrowing down the quotes from the children’s books since they were all so good, so it ended up being 2 pages long (well, one page, front and back). The idea is that you have to name the book the quote is from. You can view/download it by clicking the photo below (it includes a page with the answers)

The other game we played was “Baby Jeopardy”. We split the group into 2 teams, each with a bell to ring if they knew the answer. The ‘points’ were actually candy. So, for example, 100 was tootsie rolls, 200 was peppermint, 300 was jolly rancher, and so forth. A team picked a category and a candy level, anyone could ring in with an answer (but only one try per team), and if they got it right all the team members got a piece of that candy. The final Jeopardy question was open to everyone (they wrote their answers on a blank spot on their other game forms). We ended up doing it so that anyone within 25 of the correct answer got a Baby Ruth candy bar. You can get my list of questions and answers below (the correct answer is in bold).
