Baby sprinkles are a great way to welcome the newest little one on the way into your family in a low-key way. These adorably cute sprinkle party games will have your guests smiling and laughing throughout the whole party without making a major fuss.
It is always so exciting getting ready to welcome a new baby into the world. However, the party and celebration don’t always need to be as big when it isn’t your first child. Chances are you already have lots of items a brand-new mom would need, so there isn’t a need for full-on baby shower game planning.
That’s where the sprinkle comes into play.
Think of your sprinkle as a baby shower, just downsized. While the party may be at a minimum, the games and activities are not. I always love to find games that everyone can get involved with at the party.
Some of my favorite games to play during a sprinkle include printables & baby shower minute-to-win-it games. The printables are super accessible, and the minute to win it games let everyone get in on the action.
Pro planning tip: Look for games that only require one hand. This way guests don’t have to set down their drink in order to play.
If you are looking for ideas of what to do at your sprinkle, you’ve come to the right place. These sprinkle games will make your low-key bash feel like a full-on celebration.
