Include riddles at a baby shower during a scavenger hunt, a nursery rhyme guessing game or a hidden treasures challenge to keep guests involved and excited during their visit. Create a scavenger hunt using riddles that lead to baby-related items in the host's home. Plan the Perfect Baby Shower offers printable clues that have guests hunting in the kitchen, laundry room, bathroom and TV room for specific items.

Riddles based on well-known nursery rhymes allow everyone to participate while remaining seated. One possible riddle is, "What was Little Miss Muffet sitting on when the spider sat beside her?" The answer is a tuffet. Another riddle is, "What did Georgie Porgie do to make girls cry?" The answer is that he kissed them. Another example is, "What did the farmer's wife do to the three blind mice?" The answer is that she cut off their tails.

SimpliFun suggests challenging treasure hunt riddles specifically designed for an innovative, upbeat baby shower. Set the course to include items needed by the mom-to-be, such as diapers, baby shampoo, booties and formula. Another action-packed option that works well in an outdoor setting requires guests to hunt for raffle tickets taped to the leaves of trees and various objects in the area. The first to answer a riddle correctly gets 30 seconds of hunting time. Close the shower with a drawing for take-home prizes.
