20 Baby Shower Game Ideas

1.Race to Water Break

Everyone puts one of these baby-filled ice cubes in their drink. Whoever’s melts first, wins!

2. Celebrity Mom Trivia

Make a list of celebrity moms and see who can name all of their kids

3. Gender Reveal Voting

Instant conversation starter: have your guests vote when they walk in

4. Guess the Baby Photo

Have everyone bring a baby photo and try to figure out who’s who.

5. Name the Baby Animal

Write down a list of animals and see who can guess the terms used for their young. Did you know a baby kangaroo is a joey?

6. Guess the Baby Food

Gather up a few unusually flavored baby foods (ham and pineapple puree, anyone?) and have guests perform a taste test.

7. Name That Poo

Nasty, but a classic. Melt different types of chocolate bars (caramel, nuts, etc) in baby diapers and have guests guess which is which- or have them race to devour their diaper first.

8. Playdough Babies

Have guests flex their sculpting skills by making play doh babies. Give prizes for categorizes such as most anatomically correct, creepiest, funniest, and best overall.

9. Bobbing for Nipples

Like the apple version but with the tops of baby bottles instead.

10. Bottle Chugging

Fill baby bottles with your drink of choice. Make it a bit more fun for non-pregnant guests by adding some booze, then have guests race to chug them down.

11. Diaper Messages

A gift that’ll make the mom-to-be’s endless changing sessions a bit easier to bear: have guests write funny messages on a bunch of diapers.

12. Don’t Say Baby

Challenge guests to not say the word “baby”. If someone slips, they have to give up their clip (or bow tie, or whatever). Whoever holds out the longest gets a prize.

13. The Price is Right

Babies come with a whole lot of stuff. See who’s best at guessing the cost of it all.

14. Baby Wish List

Go a more sentimental route by having attendees write down their wishes for baby. Check out this free printable.

15. Onesie Decorating

Set up a onesie decorating station. Having cute iron-ons already prepared ensures that even non-crafty guests can participate.

16. Pin the Sperm on the Egg

Set up this version of the childhood classic, or make your own board.

17. Measure Mom’s Belly

Have guests cut pieces of yarn to a length they think corresponds to the circumference of the mom-to-be’s belly. Might as well have fun with the one time it’s OK to comment on a woman’s growing waistline.

18. Baby Bingo

In this spin on the classic, guests score when a gift they’ve predicted (nursing bra, hooded towel, Diaper Genie) is opened


19. Word Scramble

Leave a newborn-baby-themed word scramble at each guest’s place setting for an easy and optional ice-breaker.

20. Animal Gestation Period

See who can guess the length of different animals’ gestation periods. You can use this free printable or make your own list. It’ll make you thankful to not be an elephant.
