Baby Shower Games That Will Keep Guests Laughing

Pregnant women are either for or against baby shower games. They truly are a love or hate part of the festivities to celebrate the baby coming into the world. Part of the reason for that could be that many baby shower games are dull, put those expecting in uncomfortable positions, or are just plain lame. That is why thinking outside of the box and coming up with funny shower games is the way to bring the fun to the day. And if baby shower games keep guests laughing the whole time, so much the better!

According to Darling Celebrations, baby shower games have been around since the 1940s. This was right around the time that baby showers became popular with the Baby Boomers having their babies. Wanting to celebrate all of the babies, the baby shower was modeled after bridal showers where there are traditionally some games. And as a result, baby shower games were created.
