Activities Versus Games
You are pondering the finer points of whether to choose a game or a shower activity, but what is the difference? Typically, a game is short. Baby shower games usually relate specifically to babies, pregnant women, or childcare. They require minimal materials—often just paper and pen. They are designed to add an element of tradition and fun to the gathering.
A shower activity is usually more involved than a simple game. It may or may not revolve around the baby, but instead just be a relaxing and enjoyable pursuit for a group of friends. The activity can be theme-based, gender-based, or interest-based. In these cases, the shower becomes part of the activity rather that the reverse.
