Baby shower games at your baby shower can
be one of the most memorable experiences during the pre-baby events that

around the room first as an ice breaker and have everyone introduce
themselves and how they know the Mother-To-Be. Below we have listed the most popular baby shower games to play during the baby shower.

1) Guess Mom's
Tummy Size: (Materials- String or yarn and scissors) Have each woman pull
the yarn to the size they believe would fit perfectly around the Mother-To-Be's center of

baby shower favorite.
2) Never say
"Baby": (Materials- baby safety pins or another type of baby
object you can place on a string for each woman at the party as well as string or yarn,
enough for each woman to wear as a necklace). Have each woman place the necklace with the
baby safety pins around her neck when she gets to the party. The rules
for this baby shower game are given out at
the beginning of the baby shower that whenever someone says the word "baby"
during the shower, any woman who calls it out gets a pin from the other woman who stated
the word. At the end of the baby shower, the woman with the most pins wins a prize.
3) How Many
Baby Items Can You Name: (Materials- pad of paper and pen for each woman).
Have each woman write down as many baby products as they can name (bottle, blanket,
pacifier, etc) within 5 minutes. Sure it is easy at the beginning, but towards the last
few minutes, the women will start racking their brains for more :) Give a prize to the
woman who gets the most baby products named!
4) Who Can
Make The Mother-To-Be's Baby: (Materials - Baby magazines, Scissors, Glue,
Paper). Have the women group up into teams of 3 and give each 3 baby magazines. Have them

possibly look like hers the best! Give prizes to the winning team! One
of the top baby shower games!

One of our visitors, Lynn, stated that
she filled a clear plastic container (about 50 qt size with disposable
diapers) all the same size (size 1) and had people guess how many
diapers were in the container. Of course, container and contents go to
mom since, as we all know, you can never have enough diapers. This baby
shower game is very functional for the mommy-to-be!

You Know Mommy-To-Be: (Materials- Pre-Printed Form and pen for each

her husband (Daddy-To-Be). An example of this idea is found below:
Select 25 attributes and ask everyone to fill
in the form from what each woman feels the "mommy-to-be's" point of view"
will be. After everyone checks off the list, have the mommy-to-be state her preference.
The one with the most correct match to the Mommy-To-Be wins a prize. This is a great baby

Baby On The Mommy: (Materials- Cutouts of a baby with tape and blindfold).
Another one of our favorite baby shower games is the baby shower version of Pin The Tail on the Donkey. Blindfold each participant and then
give them a paper baby to then approach the mom and place the baby as close to the tummy
as possible. The one who gets closest to placing the paper baby on the pregnant tummy
Baby Shower Trivia Game
- (Materials: Paper, Pens) - Have someone from the baby shower look up
some great baby shower trivia prior to the party. Questions like: "How
many babies are born a year", "What is the most common color used in a
baby's room?", "What is the average weight of a baby?". Look up some
great facts and have a ball playing this great baby shower game with
your friends and family!
10) Baby Bingo:
(Materials- Pens, Pre-Printed Bingo cards that use the numbers of how many people attend
the baby shower) Prior to opening the baby shower gifts, number each gift on the box starting with
one. If you know that 15 people will be attending your shower, pre-print bingo cards with
numbers 1 through 15 and randomly place them on 15 cards. When the mommy-to-be's decides
to open the presents, she grabs the present she wants to open and reads the number out
loud. As soon as someone receives bingo, they win the baby shower game and the baby shower prize.
