Don't say "BABY" Game
Each guest receives a clothes pin as they arrive and explain to the guests only once: If you catch someone saying the word 'baby' you get to take their clothes pin. The one with the most pins at the end of the shower wins.
- Suggestion: Instead of using safety pins, make candy pacifiers. Use white certs (the ones like lifesavers), pink or blue ribbon, and jelly beans. How to make: Put ribbon through the cert, and then glue a jelly bean in the center. Note: Tell guest not to eat the pacifiers. Play the game the same way, but wear the pacifiers around the neck.

Baby Shower Bingo
Make up a blank bingo card on 8 1/2 X 11 paper and made copies. Each card
had five columns and five rows. The boxes need to be large enough that the guests can fill them in. Then on another sheet of paper come up with 100 baby related items. Before you play you need to have each guest fill in their blank spaces with any of the words on the list of 100 in any order. Then, without telling the guests ahead of time, have them play bingo while the mother to be opens her gifts. Every time that she opens one of the gifts the guests mark off that gift on their bingo card. The first to bingo either up and down, across or diagonally wins. We had enough prizes that we were able to play this game the entire time that the mother opened gifts. Thanks - Diana

The Price is Right
Just like TV, purchase several baby items and keep the receipt. Have the items out for the guests to see, and have them write down what the price of each item. The one closest without going over to the actual price wins. You can also have 10 - 15 items and list the prices of each, and the person who matches the most products to the correct amount of prices wins a gift.
Hang the Laundry
Hang a clothes line at the shower. Have a pile or a basket with baby clothes, blankets, and clothes pins. Each guest has a certain amount of time to hang the clothes while they are holding a baby (doll) and have a cordless phone to their ear. The ones that can hang the most clothing without dropping baby or the phone wins.
We had a really big shower, probably 50 people there, so we had them divide up in teams. I got several jars of play dough, and gave one to each team of 4 people. They picked one person to go first, that person would draw a word from a basket. I filled a basket with pieces of paper with baby type words on them (stroller, bed, diaper, etc...) and then it was a race to "sculpt" the word out of the play dough, while their team members tried to guess what it was. It was hilarious. Of course some words were much easier then others, and every team had a different word, so there was not a problem with one team looking what someone else was sculpting. We did this several times, and had a good time. I gave a small prize to everyone on the team when they won a round. The play dough works great too if there are any children at the shower, it keeps them busy, so be sure to buy plenty. Thanks - Diana
|Baby Shower Games with Food
Baby Food Guess
Purchase 6-10 jars of baby food, remove the wrappers and number then number the jars. Have the guests try to guess the food.
Baby Bottle Drink-Off! Great for Couples Showers
Fill small baby bottles with fruit juice for each guest. NOTE: Provide a variety of
juices or water ( add food coloring for baby shower colors), for those guests with food allergies. The person who finishes the bottle first receives a prize. It is hilarious and much harder than you would think. This activity may be played individually or combined with a few other ideas in a group race. Thanks - Marcy - Gilbert, AZ
Have guests partner up. Put a bib on 1 person in each team. Have the other person of the pair get behind the person with the bib to be their "arms". The person behind feeds the person with the bib from a jar of baby food. The first pair to finish their food wins. This can get messy, so use a table cloth or an easy to clean surface - and have the cameras ready! Thanks - Bonnie
Something's In The Diaper Game
Partially melt up popular candy bars and mush one of each candy bar into a diaper. Each guest must guess which candy bar they think is in the diaper. Get the camera ready, everybody looks pretty funny sticking their noses in messy diapers! Thanks - Sue - Fullerton, CA
Variation: Stinky Diaper Game
Purchase a box of diapers, place different foods in each diaper. Such as peas, peanut butter, beets, applesauce, and so on. Have the guest each smell them and pass to the other guests. Each guest will have a piece of paper where they can write down what they think is in the diaper. The one with the most correct answers will win a small prize. Thanks - Teresa - Elmira, NY
Pins in Rice
Place about 50 small safety pins in a bowl of uncooked rice. The blindfolded guest has to pick out as many safety pins as they can. Set a time limit such as 30 seconds. The one with the most pins wins.
|Ice Breaker Baby Shower Games
IceBreaker - Discovery Game
This is a good game to start a party so that people can break the ice and get to know each other a little better great for showers or any event. Each guest receives a piece of paper and a pencil. In that paper they will find 10-15 different sentences. They have to find somebody in that room that shares what the sentence says and once they do, they write in that persons name. No listing yourself as the answer either! The winner is the first person to finish or whoever gets the most names, and you can give them a reward. To make it more fun, read the sentence and the answers to the group, so all can enjoy.
For instance you can write things such as:
- Find somebody who wears your same shoe size Name:______
- Find somebody who likes chinese food
- Find somebody who has been to Europe
You can be as creative as you want to be! This one is a guaranteed success to make people feel comfortable with each other. Thanks - Ruth

The Toilet Paper Game
This is great for a "getting to you know you game". Have everyone sit in a circle and pass around a roll of toilet paper. Ask everyone to pretend they were going on a weekend camping trip and they need to take as much or as little toilet paper off as they would use. Once everyone has tore off their sheets tell them they have to tell something about themselves for every sheet they took off. For the ones to took a few they have it easy and they ones who took a lot then they have a lot of talking to do!

Get to know you game. Label 3X5 cards with famous characters from childhood.
