Our Friend's Monkey Tea Party Brunch / Baby Shower

Our Friend's Monkey Tea Party Brunch / Baby Shower

A few Sundays ago, we attended our friends Sylv and Sherman's monkey themed baby shower. You may notice the balloons both say "It's a girl!" and "It's a boy!" and it's because the parents will not find out the baby's sex until the baby is born. How exciting! 

And of course, a baby shower is not complete without baby shower games. Here are a few of the games we played: dirty diapers, drink up baby and guessing the mother's measurements. More details below.

Dirty Diapers

An icky dirty diaper is no one's friend but what if the gooey center is actually candy? Place several types of melted chocolate candies in newborn-sized diapers. Make sure you have many types and consistencies represented: milky, creamy, nutty, caramel-filled and the like. Pass the diapers around and have each person sniff the gooey 'poo' centers in order to guess which brand of candy bar is in each diaper. The person with the best nose wins!

Drink Up, Baby!

Fill baby bottles with the beverage of your choice at a grown-ups' party. Then, give everyone a bottle and on the count of three they must suck the bottles dry as quickly as possible. The first person to down the contents of his or her bottle wins.

Guess the Mother's Measurements

Pregnancy is perhaps the only time in life that it's socially acceptable to go up to a woman, rub her belly and comment on the expanding size of her waistline. So why not have fun with it? Pass around a ball of yarn and a pair of scissors. Tell each guest to cut off a length of string that they think corresponds to the size of the honoree's belly. When everyone has a piece of string, invite each person up to try his or her luck measuring the mom-to-be's belly. Whoever has a string that comes closest to being a perfect measurement, wins.
