8 Baby Shower Games
Baby shower games can be tough to think of. You want something fun and unique that people will actually want to play. Well, if this is you, you’re in luck! Because we’ve searched the internet for hours to find 8 Baby Shower Games that you and your guests will love!
Alphabet Soup! This Baby Shower Game isn’t exactly a game, but more of an activity. Pre-Baby Shower, go to any craft store and purchase a variety of different sizes, styles, and shapes of each letter of the alphabet. At the actual Baby Shower, have an assortment of different markers, paint, ribbons, sequins, bows, or anything else you would like to decorate. Then, invite each guest to decorate a letter and watch the alphabet soup get to stirring! At the end of the shower, you should have a full 26 letter alphabet that is uniquely decorated that you can hang in the baby’s nursery. It’s so neat to have nursery decorations coming from the people who mean the most to you. It’s also a reminder that you have a support system and people who care about you.
My Water Broke
My Water Broke! This fun baby shower game will have everyone competing to see whose water is the first to break. All you need a bunch of small plastic babies and some ice cube trays. If for some reason you don’t have a bunch of small plastic babies lying around the house, you can order them from Amazon here.
First, get your ice cube trays out and make sure they’re all nice and clean. Then, put a small plastic baby in each compartment, fill with water, and let freeze. When it’s time for the baby shower, put all of the ice cube babies in a bowl. Each guest will take one and put it in their drink, then wait. As the shower goes on, guests will continue to watch their drink until the baby is free. When your ice melts and the baby is free, shout “My Water Broke!” The first lucky person whose water breaks wins a prize!
Pacifier Hunt! This baby shower game is perfect for guests of all ages. All you need are pacifiers and some good hiding spots! Depending on the size of the shower, you may need more or fewer pacifiers. But regardless, the same rules apply. Feel free to use actual pacifiers, but fair warning – they can get expensive. We found some cute acrylic mini pacifiers that are a lot cheaper on Amazon here. Get a pack or two of these and you’re set to go!
Start out with x number of pacifiers and hide them in various places around the shower. Maybe you want one in the bottom of the punch bowl, in the bathroom, or in a flower arrangement. Guests will go around the shower eating, socializing, and participating in various activities. During this, they will also be on the hunt for these randomly placed pacifiers. The guest with the most pacifiers at the end wins a prize!
Guess the Baby Bump Size
Guess the Baby Bump Size! This baby shower game is fun for everyone and doesn’t require a lot of supplies. All you need is some yarn and scissors. Place a roll of yarn and some scissors on each table and have guests cut a piece of yarn to the length they think will fit around the mother-to-be’s waist/baby bump. If you need a few bundles of mini yarn, you can snag 24 mini rolls in assorted colors for $10 on Amazon here. The person with the closest guess wins a prize!
Tinkle in the Pot
Tinkle in the Pot! This Baby Shower Game is so hilarious it’ll have everyone laughing. The goal of the game is to get the tinkle in the pot (or the ping pong ball in the mason jar). All you need is some ping pong balls, mason jars, and balloons. Blow up some balloons and have guests put them under his or her shirt (to imitate the baby bump, of course). Then, set up mason jars a few feet in front of the “starting line.” Next, have guests take turns holding a ping pong ball in between their knees and try to drop it in the mason jar. It’s sure to be a fun game for guest of all ages! You’ll definitely want to take some video.
