Are you thinking about hosting a Sprinkle for a friend, or have you been invited to a Sprinkle Shower? Or are you just wondering what a Sprinkle party is all about? We’re sharing our favorite ideas to host a DIY Sprinkle party, plus what to expect if you’re invited to one.
WHAT IS A SPRINKLE?
A Sprinkle is a baby shower that is held to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a second, third, fourth, or fifth (you get the idea) child. It’s usually a little more relaxed than a traditional baby shower, with a heavy focus on celebrating mom and giving functional gifts. Older siblings are sometimes included.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT A SPRINKLE
Sprinkles are usually about pampering mom. You might go out to dinner as a group, meet at a salon for pedicures or have a grill-out that includes the entire family.
Traditional baby shower games are rarely played at Sprinkle parties. Instead, it’s a chance to spend time with the mom-to-be before the new baby arrives.
WHAT TO BRING TO A SPRINKLE
Sprinkle gifts are all about function!
An assortment of products for the entire family is a great way to help mom prepare for another child.
Kandoo Flushable Wipes can help mom get an older sibling potty-trained before the baby’s arrival, while Kandoo Foaming Handsoap will be crucial in keeping big brother’s or big sister’s germs away from the baby. Kandoo offers a variety of products that helps kids learn to stay clean all on their own.
Boogie Wipes® saline nose wipes can soothe the snotty noses of older siblings and are also gentle enough to use on the baby. Boogie Wipes®’ sidekick, Boogie Mist® saline mist, can be used simultaneously as a gentle saline mist for all ages.
And every mom needs Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus to keep herself wrinkle-free – even when she’s covered in kids.
The Dreft® 6-Piece Loads of Joy™ Gift Set is perfect for experienced moms. The gentle yet effective detergent, stain remover, all-purpose cleaner, stain remover pen, in-wash scent booster keeps everything fresh and clean. As an added bonus, it also includes cute monthly stickers for the baby and a “Loads of Advice” booklet for new parents.
UNIQUE SPRINKLE GIFTS
Looking for a unique and personalized Sprinkle Gift for the mom-to-be?
Purchase a plaque from your local craft store, and put older siblings’ handprints on it. Be sure to leave a space in the middle for the new baby’s when he or she arrives.
This can hang in the nursery and be a great reminder of bringing home the new baby.
Not feeling quite as crafty? Purchase a book for the new baby, and have all of the sprinkle guests sign it. It will be a functional keepsake for the entire family.
