Cute as a Button Baby Shower Game

We are hosting a Cute as a Button themed baby shower on a budget in a few weeks.  I decided to do one game for the shower that does not require everyone to participate all at once. We are having ladies, husbands and kids at this shower, so not everyone will be able to play along simultaneously. 

I modified this activity from a great one at While Wearing Heels where she created a calendar to guess the date the baby will be born.

I added our theme to the activity by asking the guest to stick a button to the date where they are guessing the date "on the button".  They would then write their name next to their button as well. Here is the set up:

Since our baby shower is on a budget I used leftover buttons from a few other projects I've created for the shower and leftover scrapbook paper.  Then I created calendars for two months because she is due closer to the beginning of November, and you never know she could be early.  I just printed off some simple calendars from Word. I put some buttons for people to stick on in a small flower pot.  Then created the little sign along with it.

Thanks for checking this project out. The winner will get a gift of button candy once the baby is born.  Since everyone lives close by they will get to the winner quickly.

Thanks for stopping by!
