6 Fun Baby Shower Games


A baby shower usually lasts from 2-4 hours depending on budget, location, and guest list. Baby Shower Games are a great way to fill up some of that time. They also allow your baby shower guests to participate directly in the baby shower.

Baby shower games are great ice breakers for baby shower guests who may not know each other. For a two hour baby shower you should have about 2-3 games. There are games that can be played by everyone at the same time. These include Baby Gift Bingo or a Baby Shower Scratch Off game. Other games last the entire length of the Baby Shower, such as the Pacifier Game.

Baby Gift Bingo
Purchase or create a blank Bingo Board. Many styles and themes are available. Hand one to each guest before the mom to be opens her gifts. Instruct your guests to fill out what they think the mom to be will receive as a gift. As the mom to be opens her gifts, each player will mark off a match on her bingo board. You decide what wins: straight bingo, X, four corners, etc.

Don't Say Baby Pacifier Game
Give each guest a pacifier necklace when they arrive and explain the rules to them. The rules are: If you say "baby" and someone hears you, that person gets your pacifier necklace. The winner is the person with the most pacifier necklaces at the end of the shower.

Ribbon Game
Purchase spools of ribbon or string. They don't have to be expensive, just make sure you have enough for people who get carried away. Go up to each baby shower guest and instruct them to choose a length of ribbon or string that they think will fit perfectly around the mom's belly. Cut the ribbon and have the guests hold on to them. Once everyone has their ribbon, each guest will wrap their ribbon around the mom's belly. The guest who was the closest wins the game!!

There may be some mom's who are sensitive about the size of their belly. Have an alternative game planned in case mom to be isn't comfortable playing this game.

Baby Food Jar Game
Guess the baby food flavor!! Take 3-5 jars of baby food and mark the bottoms with letters (A, B, C, etc). Make an answer key with the baby food flavor and corresponding letter. Remove the labels and place on a tray. Have your guests label a sheet of paper A-C (or A-E if you have 5). Move the tray from table to table and have guests guess what flavor the baby food is. The person who has all 5 right, or closest, wins.

Who has the dirty diaper?
Create diapers by taking napkins and folding them into diapers. Fold into a triangle, and then bring in the three corners to touch. Secure with double sided tape. Make sure there is room to peak inside the diaper. Decide on the number of winners you want. Take as many diapers and smear a chocolate bar inside to create a "dirty diaper". Tip: Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 5 seconds to soften. Ask your guests to choose their diapers from a basket or place them under their seats before they arrive. The guests with the dirty diapers win!

Baby Related Items A to Z
Create sheets using a word processor marked A through Z. Pass out the sheets to your guests and tell them they have limited time (3 Minutes) to think of baby related items from A to Z. Everyone will get a kick to hear some things that people come up with!

Some popular games are word searches, gift bingos, raffle tickets, and even pin the pacifier on the baby! If you are not sure of what your guests will enjoy, why not choose what the mom to be will enjoy! Games can be coordinated with your baby shower theme. Be creative and have fun!
