- “We are planning a raffle diaper! To enter the game, bring a package of diapers, and you have a chance to win a fabulous prize!”
Create diaper raffle tickets
To enter the diaper raffle game, your guest will need raffle tickets. Therefore, you can include tickets in the invitation envelopes. This way, the guest can fill out the tickets on time and be ready for when the game starts.
Moreover, another option is to hand them out at the baby shower. How many tickets you will give out depends on how you will play. Either the guests can bring one pack of diapers and receive one diaper raffle ticket or bring multiple diaper packs for more tickets.
Also, which rules you will go for depends on your preference, the number of guests you invite, and how much space you have. You can find diaper raffle tickets at a party supply store, purchase them online or have them custom printed.
Give the guests an exclusive prize
You can give a unique prize to make the event even more exciting and entice the guests to participate in the diaper raffle.
If you want, you can also mention the prize in the invitations or request additional products, such as wipes.
Make sure to create a raffle box or a bowl where the guests will put the diaper raffle tickets for a prize draw.
What are good prizes for a diaper raffle?
There are many options regarding diaper raffle prizes. You can choose something simple like gift cards, spa coupons, gift baskets (food, coffee, chocolate baskets, etc.), or opt for experiences, such as tickets for a movie or other events.
Other good diaper raffle gift ideas include small kitchen gadgets, wine glasses, cheeseboard and knife set, candles, and bath and shower products.
If you are on a budget, you needn’t worry. You can create plenty of meaningful DIY gifts to add a personalized touch and make your guests feel extra special.
Set the table for the diaper raffle
To keep everything organized during the baby shower, you can have a designated area for the diaper raffle. This includes setting a diaper raffle table with a framed diaper raffle sign to let the guests know where to put their diapers.
Additionally, you can place instructions so that all the guests know how to play the game. You can put additional tickets on the table in case some guests forget their diaper raffle tickets and pens for filling out the tickets.
Additionally, you can even display the grand prize they can win. You can also include diaper-themed decorations, which will go well with your baby shower theme.
Select the winner
Once everything is settled, it is time to announce the diaper raffle winner. A great idea is to gather all of the guests together as you select the winning ticket.
Draw a ticket from the bowl/box, and whoever’s name you pick is the winner. Read the name of the winners aloud and get a photo of the memorable moment.
How Many Prizes Should There Be
There is usually one raffle prize for the event. However, if you want to, you can also draw multiple winners and include up to three prizes. Otherwise, with too many raffles, the whole baby shower event will be all about them.
What is the difference between a diaper raffle and a diaper fund?
Both a diaper raffle and a diaper fund are different events. A diaper raffle is an event in which the baby shower guests bring a pack of diapers and receive diaper raffle tickets to enter and have a chance to win a special prize.
On the other hand, the diaper fund requires the guest to purchase a raffle ticket for a certain amount of money. The guest tickets are then put into a box for drawing a prize, whereas the money goes to the parents so that they can purchase diapers and other things for the baby.
The diaper raffle game is an excellent baby shower activity. The game involves all of the guests and adds excitement to the event.
In addition to entertainment, such an event will help you get stocked with diapers and ready for your newborn’s arrival.
