Baby Shower Theme Nursery Invitations
One cute way of sending out your baby shower theme nursery rhyme invitation is to cut a lamb out of a cardboard, and send it as your invitation card, with the following message: “Meh meh, I’m <Mother-to-be>’s Little Lamb, sent out to invite you to her baby’s shower. Would you RSVP?” or something like that. You could actually use the different nursery rhyme characters, from Humpty Dumpty to the Three Blind Mice, and with some witty message, you could definitely wow your guests into RSVPing to your shower.
If you’re in a more creative mood, you could also create some party hats where your favourite nursery rhyme characters make their appearance. Who says a party hat cannot double up as your invitation card?
Another creative idea is to send your invitation in a CD, which will contain numerous audio files. When played, a child is heard reciting or singing a specific nursery rhyme, followed by another recital, then another. However, make sure that one of the audio files will "tell" your guest the invitation details, which will be told by the same kid doing the previous recitals.
If you find those cute, but you prefer giving an invitation that will be useful as far as your guests are concern, why don’t you bake them some cookies, shaped in animals that appeared in many nursery rhymes. You could create little cookies, and place 5-10 cookies in a bag, with a note tied to its neck. The note will indicate the invitation details, from the dress code, to the place where the shower will be held. Or you could just bake a giant cookie, wherein all invitation details is icingd on it. It will surely make them look forward to your baby shower celebration.
Before you send those out, ensure that you indicate that they should wear clothes that remind them of their favorite (or not so favorite) nursery rhyme character. A t-shirt with cow spots is a cute way to represent the cow who jumped over the moon, and with so many nursery rhyme characters, the possibilities are endless. And with enough imagination, be prepared to party with even Humpty Dumpty himself! What an AMAZING way to start your baby shower theme Nursery Rhyme!!!

More Baby Shower Theme Nursery Rhyme Games
The Hula Challenge (Individual Activity)
The goal of this game is to complete the recital or singing of a nursery rhyme, while doing the hoops. Talk about making typical rhyme recital more challenging. Each participant will draw lots for the rhyme s/he will be reciting or singing. The person who could finish with the least amount of mistake in the recital and hula hooping until the end, will be the big winner. Make sure you have extra nursery rhymes at hand, just in case you need to break a tie or two!
Dice of Fortune (Individual Activity)
This is a way simpler version of the popular game Wheel of Fortune. Of course, Nursery Rhymes is the main theme. You could just have them guess the title or to make things more challenging, have them guess the whole thing!
Start by dividing your guests into groups of three. Similar to the original game, the competition will be between these three people, wherein the winner will compete with the other winners from the other batches. This will continue until you're down to one winner.
Instead of a wheel, your guests will use a dice to determine their fate. Before anything else, assign a number in the dice that will mean the player loses his/her turn if that’s the number s/he rolled.
Another thing that needs to be taken care of before the game starts is the order of how the players will play. You could still use the dice to determine this. This, and the lose of turn, is the only role of the dice on this game.
The mechanics of the game is to guess the nursery rhyme or a letter in the nursery rhyme correctly, while it’s the player’s turn. A wrong guess or a wrong roll of the dice will lead to the next player’s turn to guess the puzzle. The player who competed with all the other winners and won, (this game is played by batches), will be the big winner!
Tip: Similar to the original game, punctuations should be revealed before guessing starts.
Nursery Rhyme Treasure Hunt (Group Activity)
Certain nursery rhyme items/characters are hidden around the room. The goal of your guests is to make sure they interpret the clues correctly, and should know their nursery rhymes enough to know which item are they looking for.
There will be two clues , the clue about the item to look for, and its location. The clue with regards to the item will be a line or two from a nursery rhyme, while the location clue will be related to the mother-to-be. For example, to find a cow stuffed toy, which is hidden in the kitchen, the clue that will be given is a line from hey diddle diddle, and something like one place in the house that is considered as mom-to-be’s sanctuary. The group who finds most of the "treasures", wins the prize!
Battle Nursery Rhyme Poster Making (Group Activity)
It’s time for your guests’ creative juices to be let out. Their task is to create a poster out of a nursery rhyme of their choice, but they have to think of a way to integrate the idea of babies in it. It could be something like a cow jumping over the moon, with a cowboy-like baby riding on its back or something more creative. The group whose creativity in integrating babies and nursery rhymes surpasses the others', will go home the winner of this battle!
Rhyming while Balloon Popping (Individual Activity)
This will need a lot of balloons, around 2 times the number of your visitors. Contained inside the balloon is the title of a nursery rhyme. The idea of this game is for each guest to pop the balloon by sitting on it, recite the specified nursery rhyme, and go to the next balloon. If first player failed to recite the rhyme properly, 2nd player has a chance to steal by reciting the missed nursery rhyme. Player 2 will then continue the balloon popping until either all the balloons are gone, or s/he failed to recite a nursery rhyme. When the last player fails to recite a nursery rhyme, the first player will then again have a chance to redeem herself! The player with most number of correctly recited nursery rhymes, wins the game!
The order of how everybody will go through the balloon bursting should be drawn out before the game starts.
NEW Baby Shower Theme Nursery Rhyme Game
We have just added a new game which we think will work as a baby shower theme Nursery Rhyme activity!
It is a bingo game but unlike the typical baby shower bingo that features words related to mommies, babies, and baby showers, this one is composed of words that makes up those popular nursery rhymes, which includes Mary Had a Little Lamb, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and so on. There's no doubt that it is a perfect addition to any baby shower theme nursery rhyme, right?
