BABY SHOWER GAMES
Baby Shower Word Search - (Materials:

game by mixing letters between real baby shower words that you can place
in a word box and list the words you have hidden at the bottom of the
page. We have a free version given to us by baby shower 101 visitor
Dawn. You can find the Baby Shower word search

again Dawn for a great baby shower game for all to enjoy!
Baby Shower Shirt Game - (Materials:
Pink and/or blue baby shower napkins and pen) - Give each baby shower
guest a napkin, pink or blue , and have them hold it behind their back.
Tell every participant to make a baby shirt by tearing the best they can
behind their back with out looking. Time limit of 4 minutes. Once they
take the napkin from behind their back, they cannot do anything else.
Have each participant write their name on the back of their creation and
place in a row on the floor. Let the mommy to be pick out the best one.
Thanks to Lola for this great baby shower game.
Water Breaks - (Materials: 1" plastic
baby figures, balloons, water) - This is a great baby shower game
ideally for outdoor showers, considering it may get a little messy. Take
8-10 dark colored deflated balloons and squeeze an artificial baby
inside. In one of the balloons, put two babies in a single balloon
(twins). Put that balloon inside a bigger inflated balloon with some
water. Guests will have to find creative ways to pop the balloon
(considering they will get a little wet) to find out if they have the
twin baby balloon. The guest with the winning balloon gets the prize.
Great game especially for mothers to be carrying twins or multiples!
Thanks to Quineka for an awesome baby shower game!
Baby Egg Hunt - (Materials: Easter
Eggs, little plastic baby toys) - This game is perfect for Easter or any
time you want to play a baby shower game indoors our out. Purchase a
pack of the empty plastic Easter eggs and have a baby shower Easter egg
hunt. Use a little pack of plastic baby toys (miniature) and place one
baby in 6 of the Easter eggs. In all of the other Easter eggs, place
candy or a cute message. The goal of the baby shower game is to find the
most babies by the end of the shower and second is to get the most eggs.
Hide the eggs around the house, inside or out, depending on where you
live and the season. The first place goes to the person who collects the
most eggs with babies in them. For a tie breaker, just see who had
collected the most eggs. Baby shower visitor, Meghan, stated, "I worked
with a pack of 42 eggs total for my party which worked fine... more or
less could have worked too I'm sure." This is a great game to even play
if children are present for the baby shower. Thanks Meghan.
Baby Shower Link Game - (Materials:
Paper, pen, plastic container and scissors) - Think of baby shower items
that relate to a newborn actions like the following:
Diaper Changing =
baby powder, rash cream, diapers, wipes
Sleeping = pacifyier, noise machine, rocking chair, night light
Feeding = spoon, bottle, jar, pump machine
Playing = rattle, teddy bear, chew toy, ball
Create cutout items of
each category and place them in separate containers. Have teams take out
one item at a time to see how fast they can guess the right answer. Come
up with more obscure items to make it harder as well as other
categories. A different variant of the game is to mix all pieces
together and see how many can come up with the right newborn activities
with the right items in each category as teams.
Baby Shower Baby Name Purse Game - (Materials: paper, pens) -
Hand out paper with the baby-to-be's name written downwards (one letter
per line), then ask the baby shower guests to find an item in their
purse that begins with each letter in the baby's name. The first guest
to complete the most letters first wins! If the name is short, use the
first and last name. Thanks to Tiffany for this great baby shower game.

shower guest an envelope and piece of construction paper. You assign
each guest a number one through the number of guest present. Whatever
number they get is the birthday card they have to make for the baby!

shower member put the cucumber between the knees, then have them pass it
to the next person while the music plays. The person receiving the
cucumber has to try to grab the cucumber without using hands. If it

with cucumber still between the knees is out. ( It's a baby shower
version of hot potato). Thanks to Candice for this wonderful baby shower

equal amount of parts, different tools to assemble) - Purchase two
baby/toddler toys that need to be assembled (e.g., a riding toy,
bicycle, doll house) supply a bunch of different tools or even better if
you have them use a butter knife instead of a screwdriver (sure to get a
lot of laughs when they look and look for the flate head screwdriver,
and realize there isn't one). Place baby shower guests into two
different teams and see how fast they can complete the assembly. Thanks
for Brandi for this great baby shower game which is also great for
It's Not My Baby - (Materials: 4 baby
dolls, lullaby music and cd player/ipod) - Have all the baby shower
guests in a circle and pass out the baby dolls. Start playing the
lullaby music (which can be a
shower gift after the game. Stop the music randomly and whomever is

the extra dolls until there are 5 people left with only one doll. Thanks
to Rach for this wonderful baby shower game!
Hot Diaper Trivia Questions -

Music) - This combines two of our former baby shower games where you
divide the baby shower guests into two teams. Have the teams sit in two
circles within their own teams. Have each team pass around a diaper
(chocolate in the middle optional for funny effect) and play the music.
When the music stops, each participant that is holding the diaper at the
time the music stops must answer a question from the list attached here

will get loads of laughs from the baby shower guests! Alternative rules
to play this game are on the downloaded baby shower game. Thanks to
Julie for this great baby shower game addition!
Baby Shower SayLibs - (Materials: pen
and paper) - This is a great game for those baby shower guests that
don't want to play any baby shower games. As the couple opens gifts, you
write down the statements they say regarding the gift (i.e. "It's sooo
cute", "look how tiny", "I love it"). At the end, the game is "What was
said on the night of conception" and you read back all the statements.
Very funny! Thanks to Barbara for this very funny baby shower game!
Don't Drop the Baby - (Materials: Hard
Boiled Eggs, spoons, markers, pens, yarn, glue, glitter and tape for a
finish line) - If the weather is nice, this game is very fun. Have
everyone decorate an egg like a baby. You can draw a face and hair with
a marker or you can get out some glue and use glitter and yarn. Baby
shower guests will be using these eggs in a spoon race. Each person
holds a spoon between their teeth or hand and balance their newly
created egg-baby while trying to cross the finish line. No hands
allowed! Thanks to baby shower visitor Rebecca from TN for a wonderful
