Baby Shower Games and Ideas

Below we have a suggested a few most popular baby shower games.

First, we would try to break the ice by asking all the guest to introduce themselves and how they know the proud parents. Below we have listed the most popular baby shower games to play during the baby shower:

Guess How Many Diapers:

Fill a clear container of size 1 diapers. Pass the container around and have the guest write down how many diapers they think are in the container. The person that comes closest to the diaper count wins a prize. The best part is that the mom-to-be wins also, she gets all the diapers in the container!

Nursery Rhymes:

See how many of your guests can remember their rhymes. After being given a single line from a nursery rhyme, can they remember the title of the rhyme it was from. Which rhyme has the line “like a diamond in the sky or to fetch a pail of water”? The guest with the most correct answers wins a prize.

Never say “Baby”:

Start by passing out a baby safety pin to all the guests. Whenever someone says the word “baby” during the shower, any guest that calls it out steals a pin from the other guest who called out the word. At the end of the baby shower, the guest with the most pins wins a prize.

Baby Shower Games

Poopy and Smelly Diapers:

Melt 10 different types of chocolate (Snickers, Milky Way, Mr. Goodbar, etc.) in each diaper. Give the guest a pen and paper and pass around the diapers and have each guest take a sniff and write down the name of the chocolate. Be creative with your candy bars. Mounds bars will create chunky poo, and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups will create a light brown poo. Whoever guesses the most correctly wins.

The Taste Test:

Purchase 10 different baby food jars. Take off the labels jars. Pass around one jar at a time and have the guests write down the flavor of the food (carrots, peas, sweet potato). If there is a tie, blindfold both women and have them taste one of the jars and guess the right flavor to win a prize.

TV Family Game:

Pass out a pen and a sheet of paper to each guest. On the paper have the names of popular television show families (old and new). Set an alloted time frame and have each guest name the children of that TV family. For example, if the clue was Dan and Roseanne Conner, the guests would need to write DJ, Becky, and Darlene. The guest with the most correct answers wins!

*A few television families to use are:
The Brady Bunch, Married with Children, Family Guy, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Cosby Show, The Simpsons, Full House, Reba

Baby Shower Gift Opening Bingo:

It is traditional to have everyone watch the mommy-to-be open the baby shower gifts at the end of the shower. Sometimes, people may get bored, especially if there are a lot of gifts. A great idea is to have a baby shower present BINGO game. Place numbers on all the gifts and make bingo cards for every baby shower guest that is still there for the present opening. When the mommy-to-be grabs a gift, she lets everyone know the gift number and these numbers coincide with the bingo numbers. The baby shower guest(s) to get bingo wins a prize. Continue reading
