11 FUN Baby Shower Games

baby shower games

We had a blast with these Baby Shower games!

 

Baby Showers are such special events! It’s a chance to hang out with the Mother to be and get some laughs in before her little bundle gets here. A lot of times, its a mixture of family and friends that may or may not have met before which can make for some awkward moments and funny new memories!

 

1. Don’t Say “Baby”

At a baby shower this is just as hard as it sounds! When we played this game at my friends baby shower, we were cracking up because everyone kept yelling “Oh! You said BABY!” Everyone kept losing pins over and over and over again. We laughed like crazy because you don’t realize how much you say it until you can’t! I kept my pin for quite some time by simply staying quiet!

2. Baby Gift Bingo

As Mommy to be  unwraps her gifts, fill out your Bingo card. You may have several winners for this game. There are several ways to play this one, you can use a pre-filled out card or fill it in on your own.

3. That’s What She Said

Have someone secretly write down what the mother to be says as she opens her gifts. Once the gifts are finished, announce that what she says as she opens her gifts is also what she said the night she conceived. You can let the Mother to be read the list or you can read it for her. Either way you’re sure to get a lot of laughs from this one. When we played there was a whole lot of “Awwww” which was hilarious to our crowd!

4. Words of Wisdom for Mom

Get a set of small envelopes and cards, give each attendee a chance to write down advice or suggestions for the Mother to be. These can later be added to a scrapbook or baby book. This article adapted it from a Martha Stewart Wedding Idea.

5. Baby Bottle Bowling

To keep the whole crowd moving, have a set of baby bottles with sand in them setup in a triangular formation. Have your guests use a tennis ball or other small ball to knock them over. You could even take this one a bit further and have teams bowling on 2 sets of bottle pins.

6. Decorate the Onesie!

Get plain white onesies, non-toxic fabric paints or markers (enough for each guest) ask mother to be to leave the room (a chance to breathe and put her feet up elsewhere) and give everyone 5 minutes to design their onesie. Once complete, have the mother to be match the newly designed onesie to the guest who made it.

7. Animal Pregnancy Baby Shower Game

With this one, you’ll match the animal with the correct number of DAYS of gestation… This one is sure to be a hoot! It’ll also give you some appreciation for just 9 months.

8. Name that Poo!

This one isn’t as gross as it looks! Melt candy bars one by one, spoon them into diapers, and make yourself a list of which one is which. Then pass the diapers around and let everyone guess what kind of candy bar it is. They can sniff or taste it to figure it out. The participant with the most correct guesses wins!

10. Hello, My Name Is…

This has always been a favorite exercise of mine (even back when I was a trainer at my previous job) sometimes the match ups are hysterical! However make sure you don’t have anyone too hard to guess in the mix.  Another cool variation of this one is to focus on celebrity moms, found that idea here: weheartparties.com

This is such a cute idea! I haven’t had a chance to do this one yet, but I love that it has many purposes.
