Another fun line up game is the Nursery Rhyme line Up Game. Print out two or three nursery rhymes depending on how many guests you have at your shower. Cut out line by line of each nursery rhyme and then put them all in a container or hat. After all guests have arrived tell them to each take a line from the hat. Have them try to find the person who has the next line to their nursery rhyme until everyone is lined up and their rhyme is complete. The team that is lined up in order of their rhyme is the big winner.
