Tired of the Same Old Baby Shower Games? Create a Scrapbook Keepsake Instead

It seems that everyone is playing the same old baby shower games these days. Why not have an activity that becomes a gift from all of your guests! Create a Scrapbook Keepsake that is full of advice from baby shower guests and becomes a memory for mom to be.

Here is what you need to purchase before the shower:

  • 12″ by 12″ Scrapbook
  • 12″ by 12″ Sheets of Decorative Paper, 1 Sheet per 2 Guests – Coordinate with your shower theme or baby’s gender
  • 4″ by 6″ Colored index cards OR Baby Advice Cards
  • Photo Corners or Some Other Adhesive
  • Stickers & Markers to Decorate the Sheets

You will also need a volunteer to help you assemble the Scrapbook Keepsake during the shower.

Provide each of your guests with a Baby Advice Card. Instruct them to write mommy to be advice on one side of the card. Have your guests pair up to decorate one of the pages. Give each pair a sheet of decorative paper, some stickers and markers. Let them decorate the pages and attach their advice cards. Your volunteer should collect the completed pages and add them to the scrapbook. You can even add extra sheets to add photos of the baby shower in the back of the Scrapbook Keepsake at a later date.

You can also do this activity with just Advice cards and a photo album. Make sure that the Baby Advice Cards you purchase will fit into your photo album. Many advice cards measure slightly larger than 4″ by 6″.

Present the Scrapbook Keepsake as a gift from mommy to be’s baby shower guests!
