Game: Baby Bucket List
What you need: Tin (or bucket), pens, notecards
How to play: Ask all of your guests to write down one thing you need to do in baby's first year. It can be things they wish they did with their kids, things they want to do when they have a baby, or things they think you and your partner will enjoy doing with baby. The bucket list suggestions can range from trips to take, moments to make sure you remember, to general advice you might forget you need. Save it for baby's birth and once you're able to, keep track of all the bucket list items you complete! It's a fun way to scrapbook baby's first year!
