Baby Shower Game Ideas

My sister was running a baby shower for a close friend and she wanted to make it fun, so she came to me looking for some baby shower game ideas. I was stumped – you mean they play games at those things?

I’d never been to a baby shower where they played games but I have to admit most showers are kind of boring so games might not be a bad idea.

Of course, you don’t want anything that is too complicated or takes up too much time. Being that it is a shower, you want to allot enough time for the mother to be to open her gifts and for people to socialize and eat. Also, keep in mind that most people are only expecting to spend 2 – 4 hours at the shower so having a lengthy game that makes the shower too long wouldn’t be cool.

Keeping that in mind, here are some baby shower game ideas that can break up the monotony but don’t take all day to play! For each of these, you will want to have some sort of prize ready for the winner.

1. Guess Mommys size – in this game, people try to guess the size of the mother to be’s stomach. What you do is pass around a ball of yarn and some scizzors and have each guest cut the yarn to the size they think will fit around mommys tummy. The one who comes closes wins!

2. Memory game – this kind of game can be played at any shower really but in this case you want to fill a tray up with common baby items and pass it around the room. Then remove the tray and have the guests write down all the items they can remember. The one who can remember the most wins!

3. Name Those Baby Items – similar to the game above, in this one you pass out paper and pencils and have the guest list as many baby items as they can in a 5 minute period. She who lists the most wins!
