    One thing I did when I threw my best fried a baby shower was.....

    I brought yarn some yarn and scissors.
    Then I had BF model her belly for everyone so they can have a really good look.
    I passed out the yarn and everyone to cut off a piece of the yarn that they think will wrap perfectly around Mama's Belly (some people want to the extreme and had about five feet of yarn it was pretty funny)
    One at a time I measured everyone's yarn around the belly. Whoever was the closest won a small prize.

    You could do the guess how many are in the jar game.

    I'm having 2 co-ed showers. We're not involving the guys in the games. We don't think they'll be very interested and probably end up hanging out and drinking in another part of the yard or house.

    At my shower with my 1st we played a game where we filled the small baby bottles with juice and like 6 people volunteered to play and had a race to see who could finish their bottle first. We also played a game where we had melted candy in a preemie diaper on a plastic doll and they had to change the dirty diaper and dress baby first. At my friend's co-Ed shower we melted different candy bars (Hershey, crunch, snickers, etc) in diapers, then they got passed around and you had to guess what the candy was. The guys liked that one lol.

    Mine was a co-ed baby shower. We played games and had lots of fun. We played guess the baby food, passed a basket around of baby stuff and had to remember everything that was in it, and I know another game but can't remember what it was. It was over 10 years ago.
