The Great Diaper Exchange Baby Shower
This themed baby shower is perfect for an expecting mom
that already has a lot of baby items because she has had
a baby before or for some other reason.
Create a diaper shaped invite. See the diaper card craft
On the invitations ask each guest to bring a package of
different sized diapers as their gift. You can also ask a
few people to bring packages of baby wipes. They can
bring something else as well, but let them know that the
theme for the shower is the "Great Diaper Exchange".
Create a centerpiece made out of diapers. See the
centerpiece craft article. On the treat table set out
napkins folded like diapers and pinned with a safety pin.
Gather up stuffed animals and put them in cloth diapers.
Set them up around the room. You can have them hold up
items or you can tie balloons to their hands.
Don't say "Baby"
As each guest arrives give them a safety pin. Explain
that if they catch someone saying the word baby, they get
to take that persons safety pin. The person with the most
safety pins at the end of the party wins a small prize.
Pass the Diaper
Melt a chocolate candy bar inside a diaper. Have all of
the guests sit in a circle. Turn on some music and have
them pass the diaper. The person holding the dirty diaper
when the music stops is out, and then play resumes. The
last person gets a small prize. For an added twist you
can also have each guest try to guess what kind of candy
bar was used in the diaper. The people who get it right
get that kind of candy bar as a prize.
Guess How Many
Fill a jar with safety pins. Pass it around and let
guests guess how many there are. The person who is the
closest wins a prize.
Diaper the Baby Relay
Have baby dolls of about the same size for every two
people at the shower. Have diapers already on the baby
dolls, and an extra diaper for each doll. When you say go
the first person takes the diaper off the baby doll and
the second person must put the new diaper on. The fastest
couple wins a small prize.
