Noahs Ark Baby Shower

Looks like rain! It must be a Noahs Ark Baby Shower Theme Party!

Get ready for DOUBLE the fun!

Here are all sorts of ideas for hosting a Noah's Ark Baby Shower including original games, invitations, favors, decorations, centerpieces, gifts and food.

Let's get planning!


Noah's Ark Baby Shower Invitations

Here are some inexpensive giraffe baby shower invitations that you can personalize and print right from your own computer. Check 'em out - they're adorable and very hip!

One of the most popular styles of baby shower invitations these days is the use of vellum. Vellum is a thin, semi-opaque, semi-clear, milky colored paper.

How is vellum used? First, go to a scrapbook or craft store and buy some sheets of Noah's ark, animal, rain, or rainbow paper (there are all types and styles of printed paper that fit a Noah's ark theme). You can get at least 2 invitations from one 8 ½ by 11 inch sheet (depending on how big or small you make the invitations). A 4” by 6” invitations is a recommended size. Also, at the store, buy the same amount of sheets of vellum. Also buy some ribbon or metal brads. You can use either the ribbon or brads to fasten the vellum to the paper.

Now for the fun part! On the computer, type up the information you want on the invitations. You could write something like this:

Looks Like Rain!
We are going to have DOUBLE the fun
at a Noah's Ark Baby Shower
for Sarah Jones!

25 August, 2005
2575 Sycamore Way
Given By Julie Cook
RSVP to Julie at 405-555-5545

Sarah and her little boy are
registered at Babies-R-Us.

Or something like that.

Next, print your wording onto your vellum. You may have to adjust and play around with the printer settings to get it to print two invitations on one page. So before you start printing on your sheets of vellum, use blank white paper first until you get it just how you want it. Then, print off as many as you are going to need. Then, cut the vellum down to about 3” by 5” size with the wording centered in the middle.

Next, cut your Noah's ark themed paper to 4” by 6” size . Then place the vellum on top of the noah's ark-themed paper and fasten it at the top with two brads, equally spaced in the center. Or punch two holes, equally spaced (about 1-2 inches apart) in the vellum and the paper; then loop come ribbon through both the paper and the vellum.

Finish it by tying the ribbon in a cute bow on top. Rainbow patterned ribbon would be darling!

You are ready to send them off!

If you don’t want to use vellum, you could follow the instructions above, but instead of printing the wording onto vellum, just print the wording on a light-colored rainbow or animal patterned paper. Cut to size and you are done!


Noahs Ark Baby Shower Favors

For cute baby shower favors, buy small boxes of animal crackers and attach a note saying something fun, like: "You made the baby shower DOUBLE the fun! Thanks for coming!"

Fill little baby bottles with a packet of Double Spearmint gum, Rain-Blo candy gum, and skittles.

Rain scented candles are perfect for Noahs Ark Baby Shower favors.


Noahs Ark Baby Shower Games

Baby Animal Name Game
Preparation for this baby shower game: Create a list of 15 - 20 adult animals and their corresponding baby names. For example: Bear - Cub. Click here for printable noahs ark baby shower game cards that you can use for free. Print a list off for each guest. Also, print off an answer Key for yourself so you can read the correct answers at the end. Here is the answer key for the example list.
How to play this baby shower game: Give each guest a list of animals and give them 4 - 5 minutes to fill in the blanks with the appropriate baby animal names. Read the correct answers from the Key and whoever gets the most correct is designated veterinarian and the winner!

What is Your Sign?
Place an animal name or picture under each guest's chair. They are to decide upon an action their animal makes which will represent them. For example a giraffe could be: extend your arm as high as you can with your hand out flat. After everyone thinks of their animal action, have everyone show everyone else what their "sign" is. Then someone starts the game by silently making their "sign" and then making the "sign" of another guest. The person whose animal sign was made last must catch on to the signal and continue the game by making their own "sign" and then that of another guest. If somebody hesitates to pick up on a sign or makes a wrong animal sign, they are out of the game. Whoever is left at the end of the game wins a prize. (It may be 2 or 3 people, depending on how long you want the game to go). To make the game more challenging, make it fast paced and eliminative (e.g. no one can crack a smile, only given one second to think, etc.) Jokes can (and should) be made by those who are eliminated :]!

Baby Animal Facts
In quiz format, write up Multiple-Choice, True-False, and/or Fill-in-the-Blank questions about baby animal facts (i.e. how long a baby fox stays with its mother, how long a fawn has its spots, the length of a female bear's pregnancy, etc.) The person who answers the most questions correctly wins a prize.


Noahs Ark Baby Shower Decorations

You can have so much fun with these Noahs Ark party decorations. You can use them all or tastefully select a few of these decoration ideas:

- Start your Noahs Ark baby shower decorations with a rainbow! Buy streamers of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple colors and hang them all over your party room. Or you could tape them to one wall in a semicircular shape to form a "real" rainbow.

- Next you need some wild animals! Buy some animal themed balloons at a local party store and spread them throughout the party room.

- Round up as many stuffed animals as you can and place them all over, on chairs, tables, the floor, the entry way. Everywhere.

- Animal cut-outs are also a nice touch and they are easy to find at most party stores. These are great to have pictures by as well!

- If you really want to experience a flood, buy a bunch of light blue balloons, but don't fill them up with helium! Fill them with air, (the old fashioned way) and spread them around the floor of the party room to make it look like water.

- Another nice touch you could add is a Noahs Ark tablecloth or table cover. Some party stores carry these. You might want to use a rain tablecloth, or clouds, or animals, or rainbow tablecloth, instead.
