BABY SHOWER GAMES

baby). You can make it harder by stating that you have to name who also wrote the songs! A

17) Pass the Dirty Diaper:
(Materials- diaper, chocolate, music player). One of our "dirtiest" baby
shower games is for the host to take a diaper that has been
"fixed" with warm chocolate in the right place and have the woman pass it to the
woman next to them (make sure everyone is in a circle). When the host stops the music,
whomever is holding the diaper is out of the game. a baby shower favorite!
18) Place the pacifier in
the babies mouth: (Materials- blindfold, create a baby picture and a few
pacifier drawnings with one for each woman). Tape a picture or drawing of a baby on the
wall and have the blindfolded women try to tape the pacifier as close to the mouth of the
baby as possible (The baby shower version of Pin The Tail on the Donkey).
19) Blindfold Diapering:
(Materials- blindfold, baby lifesize doll(s), diapers). One of the
funniest baby shower games is for the women break into teams (up to
five persons per team). Each team has a doll, blindfold and diapers. The object is for
each participant to place the blindfold on, take the current diaper off the doll and place
the new one on while blindfolded. After the first person finshes diapering, they run to
the next team-mate who places the blindfold on and has to do the same. The first team to

Baby Alphabet Game
- Give each woman at the baby shower a pen and a piece of paper that has
the alphabet written vertically down the left side of the page. The
object of the game is for the woman to write one word that has to do
with babies next to each letter of the alphabet. Set a timer for two
minutes and whoever has the most baby words wins. (For example:
A=alphabet, B=bottle, C=cuddly bear, etc).
- Before the baby shower, create playing cards by writing words or
phrases that have to do with babies on each card. During the baby
shower, divide into teams and give each team a pen or pencil and pad of
paper. Each round, one person from each team views a card and draws the
word or phrase for her team to guess. The team that guesses correctly
first earns one point. Set a timer for two minutes to keep the game
moving along. If the timer goes off before a team guesses correctly,
allow someone new from each team to draw and choose a new card. After
playing 5-10 rounds, each team adds up their points and the team with
the most wins. A prize should be given to each person on the team. a
baby shower favorite.
The Baby Shower

is not known, have the women write down the name of boy or girl. If the
sex of the baby is known, have them write down both a first and middle

words they can by using only the letters in the names they have chosen.

Name The Family (Materials - pad of

favorite is to come up with as many animal "family" names as possible
that are different (i.e., fish - school : wolves - pack: geese - gaggle:
lions - pride: elephants - herd: etc). make it a little easier on each
team by creating the name of the animal on each groups' sheet and have
them guess the right word for that animal family.
Name The Baby (Materials - pad of
paper and pen for each team or person). Have each team write down as
many proper names of animal babies as possible (i.e., duck - duckling,
fish - fry, lion - cub, cat - kitten, dog - puppy, and so on). Make it a

the babies. The internet is a great place to find the names of animal

two parts: am and pm for the guests to choose from in picking the date
and general time the baby will be born. Make sure to have the due date
highlighted. Guests can "buy in" to a lotto ticket for a certain day (am
or pm) that they think the baby will be born. The guest who guesses
closest wins a baby shower gift, of course given after the baby is born.
