Game Instructions: This game is a great one for a girl baby shower. You will need several small presents for this game, packages of candy or candy bars work well for this gifts. Have all the guests sit in a circle, and hand out your small gifts randomly to guests in the circle. Print out a copy of The Princess and the Pea fairy-tale (above). Then explain that as you read the story (or you could have the mommy-to-be read the story), everytime they hear you read the word "princess" they pass the gift to the right. At the end of the story, whoever is in possession of the gifts gets to keep them! This game requires no skills but it is fun and livens up the party. AND it is a perfect game for a "Sweet Pea" or "Pea in a Pod" baby shower theme.

Printing Instructions: Right-click on the image you want and select the "save picture as..." line. Then, you will be asked which directory to save it to. Just save it onto your desktop or in any folder you want. Then on your desktop, double click on the image icon. When the image opens up, set your printer to the desired paper size and print the image (in color or black/white).
Another printing option: If you have Microsoft Word, after you "save picture as..." explained above, open a blank document in Microsoft Word and go to the tab INSERT and then select PICTURE and then select FROM FILE. From there you just choose the directory from your computer where you saved the picture and click INSERT. And Voila! You can print it off as many times as you like.
