A baby shower usually lasts from two to four hours depending on budget, location, and the number of guests attending. Fun baby shower games and activities are a great way to fill up some of that time when guests are waiting for their meal, watching mom-to-be open her gifts, eating cake or in between. They also allow your guests to participate directly in the baby shower. There are certain games that guests are familiar with and some may expect, such as baby gift bingo. Then, there are others that you can surprise your guests with because they are so unexpected. You can certainly give them what they want but in a new way with our unique and fun baby shower games.
Baby shower games are great ice breakers for baby shower guests who may not know each other. We carry baby shower games that are fun for guests of all ages. A good rule of thumb is to have one game for every one to two hours of the baby shower, i.e. a four hour shower should have two to three games or activities. 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 can last the entire length of the Baby Shower, such as the Don't Say Baby Pacifier game.
When choosing a game keep the size of your guest list in mind. Some games work better for larger parties and vice versa. Also, some guests will not find certain games fun. For example, some guests think the smell the diaper candy bar game is fun, others are repulsed by it because the melted chocolates represent poop. Keep mom-to-be in mind too. The Measure Mommy’s Tummy game may make Mom-to-be feel awkward if she’s feeling too big or uncomfortable.
From traditional to modern you will find the perfect game for your baby shower. Our fun and colorful baby shower games are professionally designed and printed on high quality card stock. Many can be reused for other showers, such as Baby Draw, Trivia, or the Don’t Say Baby Pacifier game.
For a traditional shower game that most guests are familiar with try Baby Advice Cards (also known as keepsake cards), any variety of our Baby Bingo games or the Don't Say Baby Pacifier Game.
For a more interactive shower game where your guests are more open to playing on teams or physically getting up to play instead of playing from their seat try the Pictionary-like Baby Draw game, Pin the Pacifier on the Baby, Baby Trivia or Itty Bitty Baby Parts Ultrasound Game.
If you have children attending the shower, especially over the age of 6, then try the Don’t Say Baby Pacifier Game, any variety of our baby shower scratchers, or Itty Bitty Baby Parts. All are suitable for children and will keep their interest during the baby shower. Kids also like to collect the pacifier necklaces from the Don’t Say Baby game.
