Everyone loves a jumping baby, but not everyone loves normal baby shower games. We certainly will not do it! So, if you’re looking for games that are fresh and entertaining, we’ve put together some serious options for you to choose from. Here are the top 20 best Baby Shower games from the Beau coup for you!
1. Do not say baby
Mom is the word when it comes to saying ‘baby’! Get this great icebreaker as soon as your guests walk through the door. If you welcome every guest, give everyone a diaper pin for the shirt. Once all your guests have arrived, tell everyone that they can not say “baby” during the shower (or until it’s time to open presents). If someone hears that someone else is saying the forbidden word, they can steal the rule breaker’s PIN. At the end of the game, the person with the most pins wins a gift.
2. Guess the baby play
Pink cheeks and rosy memories abound when you play this game with your baby shower. You must set the wheels in motion when sending invitations to the shower. Attach a note to each invitation inviting guests to take a picture of themselves as babies. When each guest arrives, assign each picture a number and post it on the wall. Let each guest guess which picture corresponds to each guest. After all are done with the photos, give the person with the most matches a price!
3. Baby items in the bag
Let the guests guess with this handy game. Put at least ten common, useful baby items in a diaper bag. a bib, a teething ring, a rattle, a bottle and a diaper are just a few good things that are also quite cheap. Give each guest a pen and paper before you hand over the diaper bag. Without looking, each person should put a hand in his pocket and identify as many items as possible. Give each two minutes to feel and make their guesses before moving the bag to the next person. Once it’s your turn, find out who got the right answers. The winner will receive a prize and future parents will get the diaper bag with baby essentials!
4. The secrets of mom and dad
If you’re looking for a fun yet touching baby shower game for your coed baby shower, you’re in luck (although you can always adapt the game to the shower, just for the girls). Ask Mom and Dad for answers to twenty questions. Some great questions are, “Where were you when you heard the news?” “Do you want a girl or a boy?” and “If you could have your way, what do you want your child to be when it grows up?” After asking all questions and recording their answers, bring them both into the room and put the future parents one by one on the hotspot. Ask each person to guess the partner’s answer to each question before interrogating the audience to see who believes the answer is correct. Everyone is a winner with this lively game!
5. Baby Sketch Artist
Who would have thought that paper plates could be so much fun? Give all your guests sturdy paper plates and markers. Let them know that they are drawing a picture of the baby, and the best sketch will win. The catch is that everyone has to draw with the paper plate on his or her head! It’s a funny sight – and the finished drawings are guaranteed to be stitched together.
