Unique Baby Shower Entertainment Ideas

Make sure to wow your guests with baby shower entertainment they'll never forget

Baby shower entertainment doesn't have to mean games. Don't get me wrong: I love a good party game, and I've listed tons of my favorites on this site. But sometimes it's fun to try something different.

Maybe the mom to be just isn't the tame type -- you get the feeling she'd rather be having the shower in a dance club. Or maybe you have a group of outgoing adventurous friends who just aren't into baby bingo. No problem! You can wow the crowd with these interesting baby shower activities.

Unusual ideas for a baby shower entertainment extravaganza

Try out these unique suggestions at your next baby shower.

1. Have a scavenger hunt.

This one sometimes depends on how pregnant mom is -- if she's ready to burst, she might not want to drive around town. But otherwise, it's a lot of fun and almost no trouble for you. Give everyone a list of baby related items, stipulate that no one is allowed to buy anything, and turn them loose in teams with a specified return time. Whoever collects the most items is the winner.

Alternatively, let them buy away, and give the items to mom as an extra gift!

2. A different kind of pampering

Look around town and you'll almost certainly find some 'traveling experts' who do things like manicures, pedicures, or even massages at parties. Hire one or two of these to provide your baby shower entertainment. Everyone can relax and the mom to be can open gifts while getting a little grown up pampering of her own.

3. Video games

Am I serious? Grown women playing video games as baby shower activities? Well, yes -- if you get the right games. Talk to your kids and your friends' kids and find someone who has a Nintendo Wii. Then grab games like Dance Dance Revolution or Just Dance, or even Wii Sports -- fun, cooperative games that are as much fun to watch as they are to play.

4. Bring your own baby shower ideas

This one works best with a small group. Ask everyone to bring baby shower activities and see what they turn up with! It could be anything from a board game to pin-the-tale-on-the-donkey to a pack of fortune telling cards -- you just never know.

5. Hire unusual entertainment.

You aren't likely to find anything under baby shower entertainment in the yellow pages, but there are almost certainly local entertainers you can hire for private events. Some ideas might include belly dancers, comedians, fire jugglers, or even grown up clowns. Use your imagination (and the Internet).

As you can see, there are far more ideas for a baby shower than plain old party games. If you're the adventurous type, or your guests are, there are all kinds of fun activities you can arrange. Check out some of these types of baby shower entertainment for your next shower!
