Baby Shower Nursery Rhyme Theme


When planning a baby shower it’s always important to have a theme that will help to make the occasion a memorable one.  Nursery rhymes are a popular option.

Invitiations

After you have decided on a nursery rhyme for your theme, you can begin to decide how you want to tie it in to each aspect of your baby shower. Beginning with the invitations some ideas are:

  • Use a line or two from the nursery rhyme on the actual baby shower invitiation
  • If making the invites yourself, use forms or cut outs in shapes from the nursery rhyme, some examples of this could be a cow jumping over a spoon, or Humpty Dumpty.

Decorations

Again it is not necessary to have everything at the shower theme related but a few touches are nice such as:

  • Centerpiece for the table
  • Napkins to coordinate with the theme

Game Ideas

Below are a few inexpensive game ideas that will easily tie into a nursery rhyme theme.

  • Nursery Rhyme Fill-In: Type up some nursery rhymes with several key words deleted. People try to guess the deleted word when it’s read out loud.
  • Nursery Rhyme Quiz: So what did happen to Humpty Dumpty or Jack Sprat? Guests can find out as they play.
  • Name That Nursery Rhyme: Give out the plot of a Nursery Rhyme and have people try to name it. It’s a good idea to divide the guests into 2 teams for this one.
  • Nursery Rhyme Word Scramble: It’s a race to unscramble Nursery Rhyme names.
  • Nursery Rhyme Composition Contest: Why not try to make up your own? The most creative one wins. Don’t forget to write it down so the mother-to-be will have it forever. There’s nothing like giving mom a unique gift that will be with the baby for years.
  • Nursery Rhyme Pass-off: Go around the room where each person says the next line. It’s a fun way to see what people actually remember from their childhood.

Cake

A cake can also be another place where you are able to tie in your baby shower theme. Cakes as we all know come in many shapes and sizes and therefore can be tailored to meet your needs. Another idea is cupcakes with mini decorations that are bits and pieces from the nursery rhyme.

Conclusion

The best thing about all of these ideas is that they’re virtually free. They just require a little research that can be done either online or from many children’s books. No matter which game you choose, just remember to have fun!
