Baby Shower Activities Not Games

Baby Shower Activities that are NOT Games

Now don’t get me wrong, the traditional baby shower games can be really fun! I’ve played my fair share of “sniff the melted chocolate in the diaper” and thoroughly enjoyed myself each time.But sometimes, games just don’t feel right for the setting or the group of people who will be attending.  In which case, there are TONS of ways you can still throw a fun baby shower without the games!

Here’s some fun activities to do when celebrating the mom-to-be and the little one on the way!

Headband Making Station

A little girl can NEVER have enough headbands! This was the perfect activity for my first baby shower and I took home SO many cute headbands for baby girl. You can find the kits shown below, plus a TON of other option on Amazon and on Etsy. The kits usually come with everything you need, minus the glue guns, glue sticks and scissors. Brose more color options for headband kits here.

Onesie Making Station

This is a great activity for little girl or little boy baby showers! You can stock your onesie station with blank short sleeve and long sleeve onesies, in a variety of colors. The iron on embellishments shown below are all from Sweet Eve Boutique. Her specialty is custom vinyl for baby onesies! You can see a ton of great examples on her Instagram page here. You can also browse the packages she has available for onesie stations on the Sweet Eve Boutique Etsy page.

Baby’s First ABC Book

This activity doubles as a guest book! Guests color a page and they can be assembled into a book for baby. The printables shown  are an instant download from Samantha B Designs, however, you still have the options to customize the book with baby’s name! You can download the printable here!
