Baby Shower Mystery Guess Game Prep & Play
a. Find a box that is large enough that you can create comfortable holes in the side or sides so guests can place their hand arm in the box.
b. Prep Work: Take box and cut 1 (more difficult) or two hand holes in the box. Place a loose cloth cover inside the box that is attached just above the hand holes. Use a glue gun so that does not come loose during the game. The cloth should cover the hand hole so that guests can not see inside the box, but it should be loose at the bottom so game players can reach in the box.
c. Now get a variety of baby and new mom items large, small and odd shaped that can be placed in the box. Baby bottle, teething rings, pacifier, nipple, (nothing with pins or sharp points) etc… Make sure you have a list of all the items you are going to place in the box and if you have any large items that can not fit through the hole be sure to place them in the box before wrapping it.
d. Once you have your items, wrap the box so that it looks nice and place the baby items inside.
e. When it is game time, everyone is told that they will have a set amount of time 1 minute to feel the contents inside the box and write down everything they can identify.
f. Once you are done score the answers as follows.
1 point for every item that is correctly identified
-1 point if you list an item that is not inside the box
The person with the highest score wins a prize.
The best way to do the scoring is to one by one remove the items from the box and show the guests.
