At the last shower I hosted, I read Titus 2:1-7, and explained that the older guests were going to teach the young bride-to-be and groom-to-be how to do some of the things they will need to do once they were married. In preparation I went to the dollar stores and bought two each of several small items that could be used as gifts, to represent various duties that come with marriage. I wrapped each set of gifts together and put the duty on the gift tag. I asked for a volunteer from the guests and she chose a gift and proceeded to "teach" the couple how to complete the duty listed on the name tag by actions only, no speaking. After the couple guessed the action correctly, the guest opened the prize package and kept one gift, and gave the other to the couple. After several guests had played, I let the couple choose a gift and they "taught" the guests how to ... with the prize going to the first guest that guessed correctly. Below is a list of duties to perform and sample prizes.
"But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works:..." Titus 2:1-7
