Diaper Cake Making

Your guests won’t need sugar or flour to make a diaper cake. Instead, they’ll need diapers – and lots of them! Ask your guests to supply the diapers. You can provide the rubber bands, ribbon, and cardboard tubes required to make the cakes. This activity is a lot of fun and creates a practical gift that’s heartfelt and looks good too.

Create a Scrapbook

Creating a scrapbook for the baby is a meaningful baby shower activity your family will enjoy for years to come. Ask your guests to bring photos of themselves to your shower. They can put their pictures on a designated page, along with their name and a cute message for the baby. You can read the messages to your baby once they are born, so they know just how loved they are.

Advice Jar

This baby shower activity is great for large groups. All you need are some slips of paper, pens, and a jar. Ask your guests to write down words of wisdom or inspirational messages for the parents-to-be. The future parents can read the slips during the baby shower or later in a moment of need.
