    There are 10 (yes, 10!) teachers in my building having babies this year. Needless to say, we are all pretty tired of having shower after shower. They are all pretty much the same and are getting very monotonous. Does anyone have a fun, easy shower idea? The entire shower only lasts 30 minutes (before school). Please help!

    food...maybe a game or 2...

    do you give presents? that's a lot of people...maybe you could break it up, and draw names so each person gets like 2-3 gifts (depending on the number of people participating)...so you don't all have to go buy 10 gifts.

    We always just did one in the spring and one in the fall, for anyone getting married or having a baby. We could give the secretary money and she would split it up between all the people and then a friend of each person would go out and spend the money. We just had snacks and cake - no games or anything.

    The shower is just for one person, so we're not all having buy tons of gifts. We have some VERY sensitive people in the building who insist we have separate showers for everyone. We always do cake and gifts, but its just so old! This is the 7th shower out of 10 this year, so we were hoping for some new ideas.

    We're planning it for the end of March, so there's plenty of time to plan. :)

    We didn't do this for a baby shower, but I can see how you could. We had anyone interested bring in one of their baby pictures and we put them on the wall in the teacher's lounge. They were numbered and everyone had to try to identify who was who. It was SO funny. Put it up a week or two before the shower, then at the shower have the big reveal. Give a small prize to whoever got the most correct. Everyone had alot of fun trying to figure it out.
