Here is a fun game you can play at the next baby shower you host! I will warn you: I come from a snarky and quite sarcastic family, so it’s all I know. This game is best played with a warm group of friends who won’t get offended by being the winner and the one whose “mouth gets her in trouble.”
If I were playing this game, it would most likely be me. 😉
Here’s how the game works:
- Beforehand, prepare a prize. Know your audience and choose wisely. It can be wrapped so they don’t see what it is or overt; that’s up to you!
- During game time at the shower, hand the prize to the mom-to-be.
- You’ll read the poem in the printable below, one stanza at a time, and your guests will pass around the prize accordingly.
- When the rhyme is over, the one holding the prize is the winner!
Have fun. I hope it’s a riot for your shower and everyone gets a good laugh!

How does Marabou support women?
Moms who used to “lie-in” for forty days now have to pick themselves up within a week to get back to work. Grandmas, sisters and best friends who otherwise would have been there to help a woman transition into motherhood now live too far away and often can’t take time away from their full time job. Household chores and caring for older children fall on the woman who just delivered a new life and whose body needs rest. But we live in a sprawled world and helping hands are plentiful but often too far to be of benefit.
Marabou Services is a unique gift registry which provides services instead of stuff. Most mom’s get too many onesies, too many baby blankets and not enough helping hands. How can you give you daughter living in Japan married to a Navy sailor a helping hand? How can you lend a hand to your best friend who moved to California? How do you ask for help when none of your family lives near you anymore?
With a Marabou gift registry you can ask for any service you know will be of benefit during postpartum recovery.
Postpartum doulas for a first time mom
House cleanings for moms of multiples
Childcare for moms with older children!
Once your registry is created, add it to any other registry or post it to your Facebook and ask that your friends and family contribute to your postpartum service, rather than buying you more stuff.
