We planned a baby shower for my sister a couple weeks ago, and one of the games we played at her shower was called Multi Tasking Mama. It’s a fairly simple baby shower game (until you’re actually playing the game and trying to multi task yourself), and you can use props you already have to set it up.
Start by hanging a couple clothes lines from one point to another. You can hang it from one side of the room to the other, or from one tree to another if it’s summer. If you already have a clothes line that’s even better.
The rules of the Multi Tasking Mama baby shower game are simple. Divide your guests up into two even teams. Each team gets a clothes basket with the same amount of clothes, clothes pins, a phone, or cell phone, and a baby doll.
One at a time the team members come up and either hang all the clothes on the line, or take them all off, while they’re holding the doll baby, and talking on the phone without dropping either one, or the clothes.
If they drop the baby or the phone they have to go to the end of the line and go again. The first group to have all their members successfully multi task is the winner.
It’s a really fun game to do, and to watch. You’ll find out who’s the multi tasking pro.
