Baby Shower - Baby Word Making Game
By Kimberly Hargis
You can make your own cards or download free printable cards at Moms Break. Both are described below.
You can make your own cards by cutting playing-card-sized rectangles out of heavy weight craft paper and then writing letters and numbers on each card. Decorate the cards with baby shower stickers.
Or get free baby shower cards for this game at Moms Break baby shower free printables. A zip file with sheets containing A - Z and 0 - 9 can be downloaded free at http://www.momsbreak.com. Each sheet has four letters or numbers on different colored baby rattles. After downloading the zip file containing the card sheets, print the baby shower card sheets and then cut the cards along the dotted line around each card as a guide. Each card is the same size. These cards can be printed on standard 8.5 x 11 computer paper, but heavy weight computer craft paper in white or different colors is suggested.
How to Play:
Make or print and cut out at least one full sets of letters and numbers (two or three sets is recommended).
Shuffle the cards and stack upside down.
Have the Mommy-to-be pass out an equal number of cards to each guest.
Then have the guest see how many baby-related words they can make out of their letters.
To add fun to the game and allow the guest to make more words, allow the guests to trade cards.
* In the Moms Break card set there is a wild card sheet of cards containing only baby shower images: bottle, rattle, pin and feet ink blots. In this game these can be use to substitute any letter.
Who ever makes the most words wins.
