Baby Shower Games
Baby shower games can be the best part, or the worst part of a baby shower party. Not everyone likes to get up and do the baby dance or embarrass themselves in front of a group they may or may not know well. It is easy to find free baby shower games online and, if you spend some time reading through them, you will most likely find some fun baby shower games that all of your guests will enjoy.
Baby Shower Ideas
Before the shower, ask each guest to bring a baby photo of themselves and then display all of the photos on a decorated bulletin board. Be sure to include the guest of honor! This is a nice way to break the ice and allows the guests to mingle and get to know one another a bit.
It might be a good idea to start with some non-action, writing games. You can make a word search online and fill it in with baby words.
Or have a name game where you mix-up popular baby names and the guests unscramble them. The first person to complete the page should receive a prize. As the guests begin to warm up, you can offer some more unique baby shower games.
A Diaper Game
One game is to fill newborn diapers with small amounts of crushed chocolate candy bars. The guests then smell the diapers and decide if it is a Butterfinger, a Snickers bar, or just plain milk chocolate. It is funny to watch the looks on people’s faces as they see people sniffing tiny diapers! You can have them write out their guesses and then give the person with the most correct answers a prize.
Some Other Baby Shower Game Ideas
If you have more time on your hands, you can adapt some of the more popular board games like Pictionary or Taboo into baby shower games. For Pictionary, make some cards that would ask your guests to draw different baby items like bottles or diapers, or pacifiers. For Taboo, follow the directions for the game, but again, substitute baby words on the cards. Just remember to have a buzzer on hand, as the guests like to buzz any words that shouldn’t be said!
You have hundreds of options on the internet
If you are still at a loss as to what to play, you can find hundreds of printable baby shower games for a small fee. With delicious food, good baby shower games, and a celebrated mom-to-be, your baby shower will be a great success.
