Babies Against ParenthoodLike Cards Against Humanity, Babies Against Parenthood is a funny, multiplayer party game. This version is more PG, but thankfully that’s open to interpretation ;) This game is fun for baby showers, or a late night with friends also in the parenting way.

This game is totally free to download. You will have to pay for your own supplies. Sorry!

What you’ll need:

How to make the game:

  1. Download the PDF. Here (Google Drive) or Here (DropBox)
  2. Print it.
  3. Cut it out.
  4. Store it!

You can hold your game together the old fashioned way (with a rubber band, of course), or you can get one of these cool containers (2 5/16” square size) to keep it a bit more safe and sound.

Babies Against Parenthood Free Printable Game

How to play:

Well, the PDF file here has instructions, but here’s the basic idea.

  1. Everyone draws 10 White Cards to get set up.
  2. Each round one person will read a question/fill-in-the-blank from a Black Card. (You can switch or keep the same card reader if you choose.)
  3. Each round, everyone but the card reader will choose the White Card from their hand that they think is the funniest answer to the Black Card. (*Black cards with two or more blanks will require an equal amount of answer cards from players!)
  4. The card reader will pick a winner by choosing the one they think is the most funny.
  5. The funniest answerer gets a point.
  6. Everyone draws new White Cards so that they again have 10 cards and the cycle repeats.
  7. The player with the most points wins.

That’s it! This game has the potential to be super funny, depending on who’s playing of course.

I hope you enjoy this parenting version of the game, and keep a look-out for cameo appearances by some of my favorite natural parenting brands and products with convenient names!

Cloth Diaper CenterpieceI am totally in love with this simple centerpiece gift idea. It’s the perfect shower gift for a cloth diapering parent-to-be — and decor item, to boot! It’s definitely perfect for a Fuffin’ Awesome baby shower!

All you’ll need are a few supplies!

How to:

This project is crazy easy. All you need to do is tuck your diaper tabs in so that you have more fabric showing than hook and loops or snaps. Then simply stuff it down into your jar and wiggle a bit to get a smooth look.

Top with flowers and you’ve got great centerpieces for a baby shower, with a special gift your mom-to-be won’t expect!

Coffee Filter Flowers Centerpiece IdeaThis simple idea is lovely as a centerpiece, and it’s perfect for a Fuffin’ Awesome baby shower! The flowers can be used in a variety of ways, but I love pairing items up to create gifts that are both beautiful and useful.

All you’ll need are a few supplies!

How to:

To start, simply fill your vase, to the top with Eco Nuts. If you are unfamiliar, Eco Nuts is a brand of laundry detergent. Their product is a soap nut, which is totally nut free (it’s actually a berry).

You can learn more about soap nuts here. This gift is ideal for a baby shower gift or housewarming gift. Soap nuts are 100% natural and gentle enough for even baby’s delicate skin. They are also cloth diaper safe.

Coffee Filter Flowers How ToNext up, you’ll want to make your flowers. They are very easy to make, as you can see in the tutorial images to the right.

Start by stacking 4-5 coffee filters. I used 4 on two, and 5 on two, just to get a little variety. Use your wire to puncture the filters from the bottom, loop and then go back down from the top to the bottom. Secure by twisting the wire together.

Once the wire has been secure, grab the top coffee filter and sort of scrunch it together. Continue that process for each layer until you have crumpled each later.

Next, wrap your wire around the bottom of the flower a few times to secure it. This will help keep the layers together a bit, and it will make positioning them easier when you are ready to put them in your vase.

Finally, begin opening up your flower to create a full, natural look. When done, they sort of remind me of carnations or peonies (which I love!)

Arrange in your vase or use to decorate a wreath. The options really are limitless!

Wishes and Predictions for Baby ShowerA fun way to invite guests to give the mother-to-be advice, well wishes, and more! This useful “guest book” is perfect keepsake for a Fuffin’ Awesome baby shower!

All you’ll need are a few supplies!

How to:

Print this Template PDF file (Diaper, Bunny & Monkey are included) quality cardstock. If you have trouble accessing the PDF, you can download the JPG here. Print this full page.

Cut out your shapes and gather the rest of your supplies – pins, writing utensils, ribbon, etc.

Crafty Glitter Clothespins copyOptional: Add glitter! Tiny glittery clothespins are a bit pricey, but their plain counterparts are not. With a little glitter and glue, you can make a bundle of your own for a fraction of the cost!

Simply paint one site with a bit of craft glue and pat it in a mini pile of glitter, then let dry.

On the day of the shower place the cards on a table or in a nice box for guests. Use a small container to hold your pins, and place them next to the cards – along with pens or pencils.

Baby Wishes and Pins Baby WishesSecurely hang a line or two of ribbon for your guests will hang their well wishes and predictions. (I used a couple of clear push pins and wrapped my ribbon around them to hide the plastic head.)
