Diaper Raffle- new parents are going to need a lot of diapers. This is a fun way to encourage people to bring diapers.
Guests bring a package of unopened diapers or wipes for a chance to win a prize. As each guest arrives with a package of diapers, you give them a raffle ticket or have them put their name on a piece of paper. Put all the names or tickets in a bowl. Draw one ticket (or more) out of the pile. Give the winner a prize.
You will need to put something on the invitations so that the guests know about the diaper raffle. Here are some cute diaper raffle wording ideas/poems for the invitations:
Bring a pack of diapers, any shape or size, to enter a raffle, and win a great prize!
A package of diapers or wipes for little ol' me would really help my parents-to-be. So please bring a package any size, did I mention it could win you a really great prize?
I would make this prize special. Guests are spending money to enter the raffle so make it worth it. Some good prizes would be a gift card to a restaurant, a gift basket, spa gift certificate or something that you know the people attending the shower would enjoy.

Guess how many
Fill a jar or large baby bottle with jelly beans or any other
small candy. Have each person guess how many jelly beans are inside.
The person who gets the closest wins.
