Festive Baby Shower Games

We consulted shower-planning gurus (and got creative) to find the best games and activities that will wow your guests.
Baby Shower Bingo Baby Shower BINGO

This game is a shower classic for a reason: It engages the guests in the gift-opening.

You'll Need
* BINGO templates (see below)
* Pens

How to Do It
* Print out enough BINGO templates for each guest.
* Fill in the registry items in the blank squares.

Party Time
* Distribute one BINGO card and pen to each guest.
* As the mom-to-be opens the gifts, guests mark off the gifts on their cards.
* Whoever gets a complete horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row complete first is the winner.

Prize
Give the winner an inexpensive gift card to iTunes, Barnes & Noble, or Crate & Barrel -- or, since babies, hubbies and home pursuits have probably been the topics of the day, a copy of Nigella Lawson's How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking.
