Baby shower games and gifts

Today I am finalizing the games for the baby shower. One game that I have decided on and will share with you is the "Candy Bar Game." There are many versions of this game, but the way I chose to play it is to list the clues and answers on a sheet of paper and give the guest 5mins to see who could get the most right. The person with the most right will win the prize (which I will show you how to make later). Here is the list of possible clues and answers. I chose to use only 10 of them, mostly because I had a hard time finding all of the coordinating candy, but you can use as many as you like. The left side is the clue, and the right side is the answer, which is also the name of the corresponding candy

Contractions/or 11 pound baby= Whoppers
Grandparents/or Epidual=Lifesavers
Boys' Names=Mike & Ike
Umbilical Cord=Twizzlers
Father=Sugar Daddy
Baby Fat=Chunky
Girl's Name=Baby Ruth
Use your Eyes=Look
Cover Baby's Face with These=Hershey's Kisses
Hospital Bills/ or College Fund= 100 Grand
Time Alone=Zero
Lull-a-Byes=Symphony
Diapers, Formula, Medicine:, or Hospital Bills= Payday
First Year of Parenthood= Rocky Road
Dirty Laundry/or Engorgemement: Mounds
Night of Conception=Skor
Sweet Infant=Sugar Babies
Breast Feeding=Milky Way
Poopie Diaper=Tootsie Roll
Contractions=Now & Later
Triplets=3 Muskateers
Teething=Crunch
Cool Mom=Peppermint Patty


The gift for this game will be all 10 of the candy bars that I used to play it with. I didn't want to just hand out the candy by itself, so I decided to make a candy bouquet. If you want to make one, here is how you do it.


Find a container, small basket, or a medium sized terracotta pot (which is what I will be using)


Next you will want to put a piece of floral foam into the container. Make sure it fits snug so that your bouquet doesn't fall out!




Next you will need some craft sticks and your candy. Make sure you get the wider craft sticks because they will offer more support for your candy.


Then hot glue your sticks onto the backs of your candy.


Next, insert your sticks and candy into the foam and play around with the arrangement until you are happy with it (make sure your glue is completely dry before you do this or your candy will fall off.....I added some ribbon and a bow to my container as I was waiting for the glue to dry).


Then you can add basket shred to help hide the foam if there is any showing. I added some Hersey Kisses on top of my shred as well. You could also add flowers or anything else creative you can think of.


If you like you can wrap it in cellophane and top it off with a bow. Now you have a beautiful gift that everyone will be dying to win that game for!



Blessings
