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?
We live in culture where “bouncing back” is more valued than proper rest. As admirable as it may be for a sports star to get back on the field, the same rules don’t apply to postpartum recovery. The traditional resting period has been stolen from women through pressure to get back to their job or simply through lack of presence.
Grandmas, sisters and best friends who otherwise would have been there to help a woman transition into motherhood often live too far away to be of any help. Household chores and caring for older children inevitably fall on the mom. But she just delivered a new life! She needs rest.
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. Break out of a destructive cultural norm and start a Marabou registry today.
With a Marabou registry you can sing up for any service which will benefit you or someone you know during the postpartum recovery period.
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 friends and family contribute to your postpartum service, rather than buying you more stuff.
