Who doesn’t love fun games? Below you’ll find some great ideas for the next baby shower you throw! So grab some clothespins and diapers and let’s get this party started!
These are also Co-ed so the men in your life have no excuse to not come…tell him I said so. (Unless it’s a girls only affair)
1. Diaper Pong
Beer pong, but diaper edition! Divide the group evenly. Diapers are attached (opened and with the leg holes closed) to a cardboard sign. Different numbers are associated with each diaper to gain a score. Each player throws two balls, and the player from each group with the highest score wins! Continue this until the champions from each group go up against each other, and the person with the highest score wins the game.
2. Guess the Baby Food
This game is exactly what it sounds like. Everyone gets a sample of mystery baby food, each one numbered. Players get to taste them all and guess what the flavor is. Have fun snacking!
3. Diaper Raffle
This one is especially helpful to the parents-to-be. Every guest that brings a pack of diapers can be entered to win a prize! Make sure you let them know in the invites so it’s a fair chance for all. (It can also be fun if guests bring multiple packs of diapers, they can be entered multiple times!)
4. Guess the Due Date
A large calendar will be set up where guests can pick a day in the expecting month when they think baby will come! The winner can be sent a small prize in the mail.
5. Build a Baby
Bring out your crafty side with Play-Doh! Players will each get a small container of Play-Doh and have a set amount of time to create a baby out of the Play-Doh. Mama-to-be then gets to choose the winner!
In addition to or instead of building a baby, players can put a paper plate on their head and draw a baby without looking, timed. The new Mama chooses the winner here too.
6. Don’t Say Baby
This is the game for the person that doesn’t play games. Every person who comes to the shower gets a clothespin to clip on. If anyone says “Baby” and someone hears it, they can take the clothespin! Person with the most clothespins at the end of the shower wins.
7. Baby Animal Game
For this game you can easily print off or find cards already made. It’s simply a matching game with animals and their babies, and I promise it’s way more difficult than you think!
8. Blindfolded Diaper Changing Game
I think most moms feel like they could ace this game. Players are blindfolded and race to change the diaper of a doll. Fastest one wins!
9. Find the Pacifier
The thrower of the shower hides a certain amount of pacifiers all over. Players scramble to find as many as they can! Think Easter egg hunt, baby addition. Player with the most wins!
There are so many games out there, these are just a few. And these games can easily be altered to fit your wants, change the rules, add or take away, whatever you want!
