Chopstick Baby Shower Game
Chopstick Gardening? Pest Removal? Didn't name it at the time...
At my baby shower we played a couple of the typical games, but my favorite by far was one I came up with myself. My daughter is half Korean and while I didn't want to make everything Asian themed, I thought it would be fun to have a game using chopsticks. Especially since a lot of people have trouble with them!
Here is how you play it:
Take a window box. Attach some kind of flowers to the inside of the back wall. They could be tissue flowers, silk, wood, whatever. Then you fill the window box with Easter grass. (If you can't get your hands on Easter grass I would suggest taking some light weight green paper and putting it through a shredder.) Then into the grass you mix gummy worms. Lots of them!
Each guest to play the game has a small pail with their name on it.(A small bowl for each guest would work as well.) The pails are placed across the room from the window box.
Each guest is armed with a pair of chopsticks.
Set a timer for however long you want, 1 minute, 2 minutes...whatever seems best. When you say GO! the players all use the chopsticks to dig through the grass and find a gummy worm. They must pick the worm up with their chopsticks and transport it to the pail across the room with their name on it. If they drop their worm they must use the chopsticks to pick it up again. Back and forth from window box to garden pail until the timer runs out or you run out of worms, whichever comes first.
The person at the end of the game with the most worms in his/her pail is the winner!
This was so much fun! I laughed so hard! Everyone fought with their chopsticks, knocking other people's chopsticks out of the way or making someone drop their worms! At the end of the game I had Easter grass strewn all across the floor! Everyone who played laughed throughout the game as well.
This is also a good game if you include men in your shower (as I did) because this is a game they might enjoy a little more than a lot of the games you find at baby showers.
