When I was planning my sister’s baby shower, a friend of hers asked if she could help out so I asked her to come up with a list of baby shower games.  On that list was a onesie decorating contest, and since personalized keepsakes are something that my sister loves, I thought it would be the perfect idea. Her friend mentioned that we could get googly eyes, fabric markers, and other decorating materials, but I decided to keep it simple and just purchase onesies in various sizes and Fabric Markers since we didn’t know whether the baby would be a boy or girl.

The night before the shower, my other sister decided that she would decorate the first onesie. That is when she discovered that the ink from the fabric markers went through to the back of the onesie. So, for the onesies being decorated at the shower, we had the guests place a piece of cardboard inside of the onesie they were decorating. For the cardboard rectangles, we simply cut out pieces of cardboard from cereal and cracker boxes.

The next day at the shower, each guest got to choose a onesie or a bib to decorate and simply had to draw something onto them using the fabric markers. Since 2012 is year of the dragon, this onesie was decorated with a dragon to reflect that. Such a sweet keepsake!

Although it didn’t win first place, this peacock onesie was my favorite and got my vote!

There you have it! A simple baby shower game which yields such wonderful memories and keepsakes for the mom to be. All you need are onesies, bibs and t-shirts, or a combination of whichever you prefer along with a couple packages of fabric markers. (depending on how many guests you have of course!)

*For the onesies, I purchased 3 month, 6 month, 12 month, 18 month and 24 month onesies so that the baby would have various sizes to wear.
