A Story for Baby _____________
by Ally McLean
This can either be done on a computer (as long as it is in a central location) or in a notebook and later typed. The host starts the story with the first sentence,
ex. Once upon a time... in far away kingdom, live King (insert dad-to-be name) and Queen (mom-to-be name). If there are older siblings add Prince ___________ or Princess ______________________.
ex. Once there was a boy/girl named (insert new baby's name)
Have each guest at the shower write 1 or 2 (ONLY) sentences to continue the story. The stories can be fairytales or just funny stories but remember to keep them light, no doom a gloom!!!
At the end of the shower print the story off and have the Mom-to-be- or someone read the completed story.
As a gift, print out a copy of the story in a pretty font and frame it for the nursery or to put in the baby book.
You can also have all guest sign the back of the story so that mom and baby know who the authors of their story were.
