Do you have an elephant memory? Baby shower game

Have you ever heard that an elephant never forgets? It's true, elephants have amazing memories and since my sisters baby shower theme was elephants I used that fun fact towards the game. "Do you have an elephant memory?", matching game. I used pregnancy and baby phrases to created a matching game board. With each match the winner would get a corresponding candy bar. Below are the phrases and candy I used. I only used 15 but I'm sure there are lots more to be thought of!


  1. 12 pound baby - Whoopers
  2. First Trimester - Rocky Road
  3. Delivery Doctor - Butterfingers
  4. Baby's arrival - Pay Day
  5. Hospital bill - 100 grand
  6. Deciding baby's name - Whatchamacallit 
  7. Umbilical cord - Red vines
  8. Mommy's lunch break - Reese's fast break (or Take 5 if you can find it) 
  9. Day Care - Sour Patch Kids (or sugar babies)
  10. Baby acne - Dots
  11. Baby Lullaby - Symphony Bar
  12. Hospital Nurses - Sweetarts
  13. Breastfeeding - Milky Ways
  14. Babies 1st giggle - Snickers
  15. Epidural - Lifesavers 

I found that there are lots of candy bars that are really hard to find and I had to alter the answers a bit based on what I could find. For example, I couldn't find Take 5 and Sugar babies anywhere so I replaced them with Fast Break and Sour Patch Kids. Ultra sound was a phrase I also wanted to use but couldn't find a LOOK! bar so I had to remove that completely. 


I used one of our invitations to trace and cut out each elephant. You can find them HERE.

I loved the elephant decor 

Playing the game! It was a huge hit!

How do you decide who goes when? Did you draw numbers, and then keep recycling until all the matches were done?

How does the game work, it seems like a neat idea!

I think you just put the phrases on the back of each elephant and then have guests turn one piece on each board over. If the guest doesn't find a match they turn them back over and the next player takes a turn. If a player finds a match they win the corresponding candy gift!!
