Playing a Candy Stick Game at Your Next Baby Shower

Have you ever been to a baby shower where you played the Candy Bar game? If you have, you know it can be a lot of fun. Even if you haven’t, you might want to include it at your next baby shower because this is a game your guests will really enjoy playing. Not only that, they will enjoy earning chocolate rewards for correct answers. After all, how many girls do you know who don’t like the occasional chocolate pick-me-up?

Start the game by purchasing a large cardboard sheet and one of each of the candy bars listed below. Tape the candies to poster board so you can show them to your guests.

Give each of your guests a piece of paper, a pen or pencil, and a magazine or book to write on. Then you can start reading the tips. You can use this list or find tips of your own:

* Conception night (Score)

* Cover baby’s face with them (Hershey’s Kisses)

* 11-pound baby (Whoppers)

* Triplets (3 Musketeers)

* Grandparents (Lifeguards)

* Male names (Mike & Ike)

* Poopie Diaper (Tootsie Roll)

* Umbilical cord (Twizzlers)

* Teething (Cracking)

* Dad (Sugar Daddy)

* Girl’s name (Baby Ruth)

* Peek-a-boo (Look)

* Payment of hospital bills (100 Grands)

* Time to Yourself (Zero)

* Lullabies (Symphony)

* Diapers, baby food, child care, etc. (Payday)

* First year of being a parent (Rocky Road)

* All that dirty laundry (Mounds)

* Sweet baby (Candy Babies)

* Breastfeeding (Milky Way)

* Contractions (Now and Later)

* Cool mom (Mint Pie)

* The joys of parenting (Snickers)

If you wish, you can write a list of tips and let your guests fill it out. However, voicing cues will increase the fun everyone has and provide more opportunities for conversation and acquaintance if not all guests know each other.

When it’s time to read the answers, you can let your guests join by taking turns answering them. When someone gives you a correct answer, you can pull that chocolate bar off the poster and throw it at them. If you do, make sure everyone has a chance to answer a question. Another way to award a prize is to see who has the most correct answers and give that person the entire poster.
