Affordable Baby Shower Games no.1 – Time Capsule

Writing on a piece of paper doesn’t cost you anything but a few minutes of your time. One of the most creative and affordable baby shower games is the Time Capsule. You will have to ask your guests to write a short note for the new baby. It can be anything. From advice, to wishes. From something funny to an important inspirational quote that you too follow in your life. All the notes will be placed in a box that will be sealed in the end and given to the future mom. The box can be decorated with pink flowers if it is a baby girl or blue sky if it is a baby boy. Green is perfect if you don’t know the gender of the baby. Once all notes are in and the box is sealed, you can pass it on to the mother who will have to keep it safe for 15 years! Yes, that’s right, 15 whole years. It is a time capsule after all! When the baby turns fifteen, the mother will open the box and they can sit together to read through all the notes. A sentimental game that can help develop the child’s character and remind the mother the amazing time you had on the baby shower!
