List of the Best Baby Shower Games
Baby Jeopardy is an easily customizable game that works for both large and small crowds. Post-it notes cover the answers in this game and categories range from things like “Nursery Rhymes” to “Baby Items.” This game could also easily be played in one sitting or throughout the duration of the baby shower.
Tinkle in the Pot
A fun game that is reminiscent of the constant need to tinkle during pregnancy, this Tinkle in the Pot game is a fun co-ed party game. Participants must put a balloon under their shirt and hold a quarter (or other small object) between their knees as they waddle towards a pot, and then attempt to drop the coin in the pot.
Decorate a Onesie
While not really a party game, Decorating a Onesie for the mother to be is a fun activity that lets attendees showcase their crafty side. Bundles of white onesies can usually be purchased on the cheap and if you search your craft cabinet you should be able to find enough paint and markers to let your attendees create a fun and cute onesie.
Tie Your Shoes
A minute to win it inspired game, the seemingly simple task of tying your shoes is complicated by having to sit and have a large balloon under your shirt. Once in place, the participant that ties their shoes the quickest (without popping the balloon!) wins.
Baby Shower Charades
Great for a large crowd, a baby shower themed charades game is a fun group game. For help choosing words to act out, this site provides everything from easy charades like “drool” to harder words like “car seat” and “nesting.” Once you have selected your words, simply write them down on slips of paper and have participants draw them from a container.
Don’t Say Baby
A fun game that lasts the duration of the baby shower, the one rule of “Don’t say Baby” is simple – participants can’t say “baby.” If a participant does say “baby” and another participant catches them, the first participant must give up the clothespin (or other small object) previously supplied to all of the participants to the other participant. At the end, the participant with the most clothespins wins the game.
Most people have played Scattergories before, but in this Scattorgories game, all of the categories are baby themed. While you could create your own lists, this Etsy seller makes beautiful baby Scattergories lists for you, ensuring that you spend less time planning the party and more time enjoying it.
In the Frozen Baby game, tiny plastic babies are frozen inside ice cubes and given to guests to use in their drinks. Once the ice melts and the baby is released (reminiscent of water breaking), the first person to say “My water broke!” wins the game.
Fishing for Pacifiers
While this game does require a bit more preparation than the other games on this list, the payoff is worth it. In this game paper clips are affixed to pacifiers which are then dropped in a kiddie pool filled with several inches of water. Balloons then cover the floating pacifiers and contestants then have one minute to ‘fish’ for the pacifiers with magnets that are attached to the end of a string/line. The participant with the most pacifiers after one minute wins.
The Price is Right
If you have always fancied yourself to be a Price is Right professional, this is the perfect game for you. In this Price is Right game, all of the items are baby inspired. While you could make your own lists with a bit of research, this Etsy seller provides instant download lists that will simplify your planning
