15 fun games that can not be missing at your next baby shower

15 fun games that can not be missing at your next baby shower

The ‘baby shower’ is a party to celebrate the birth of a baby and is usually held at the end of pregnancy. Traditionally only women attended who gave gifts to the expectant mother for the baby while having tea or eating.

Today it’s for men and women (because dad is involved too) and includes games inspired by motherhood . In fact, they are the most anticipated moment of the party. Here you have 15 proposals with which you will surely succeed at your next baby shower.

What is this poo?

It may seem a bit gross, but it is a classic. It involves choosing six different flavors of chocolate, melting them one by one in the microwave and spreading them on six different diapers. The guests have to guess the flavor of each one. They can sniff, suck, smell… The one who guesses the most wins.

It’s an idea given to us by Modern Day Donnareed .

lollipop fishing

Players must put a toothpick in their mouth (chopsticks work) and without using their hands they must try to get as many lollipops as possible from a table. The winner will be the one who catches the largest number in the allotted time.

The idea has been given to us by Play party plan .

baby’s first portrait

You just need cards and markers. Each guest holds a card to their forehead and without looking draws what they think the baby will be like. The parents will choose the best (and also the worst) drawings.

The proposal of Fun, Cheap or Free


Easier than in reality because the dolls do not move or cry and, in addition, the diapers are clean. So to add some excitement to the test, the participants will have to do it blindfolded. The laughs are guaranteed.

feed dad

This game needs pairs. With her eyes covered, the mom has to feed dad, without getting dirty. It will be more complicated and fun, if there is music and a maximum time to do it. The couple that finishes eating first wins. What faces!

How big is mom’s belly?

Get some skeins of yarn and ask the guests to cut a piece with the length that they think corresponds to the circumference of the belly of the future mother. Whoever comes closest wins! Check out more interesting articles on our site.

gift bingo

Guests are given a blank bingo board (or paper), and are asked to fill in the boxes with items they think the mom-to-be will receive. When the pregnant woman begins to open the presents and they guess one, they mark it. Whoever manages to cross off five boxes in a row is the winner. You can do it yourself or buy the cards on Amazon .

Baby sitter

You have to write the letters that make up the word ‘baby’ twice and put each piece of paper in a balloon. Then you drop them and make them fly to mix them. Players have to pick up the balloons and sit on them to pop them until they find the four letters needed to form the word.

Message in the diaper

Ask your guests to write a message for dads on a package of diapers. Forbidden to read them until it is time to put it on the baby. You have to give them freedom to put what they want (funny or cute).

Twister for ‘pregnant’

It is about playing this fun game but with an extra difficulty: the participants have to simulate the future mother, placing a pillow or a balloon on her belly. Whoever manages to stay on their feet wins. Don’t forget to record the game so you can laugh watching it after the baby shower.

You can find it on Amazon .

Forbidden to name the baby

It is not about not talking about the future newborn, but rather about avoiding the word that describes it: baby.

Put clothespins in a bucket and each guest has to take five clothespins when entering the baby shower. Every time you hear another say the word ‘baby’, grab a tweezers. The one with the most at the end wins. If you don’t have tweezers, you can choose any other object (candies, chickpeas…).

Pañal fashion

Give players a box of newborn diapers and challenge them to put as many diapers on their body as possible within the time you set. The design is free and covers the entire body. The winner is… whoever manages to wear the most diapers!

guess what you eat

Another classic. You have to prepare several different types of purees and put them in different numbered pots. In pairs, ‘the mother’ must give her ‘babies’ a taste that they cannot touch or see. Whoever manages to guess the most foods after checking which ingredients each number includes in a previously written list wins.

baby bottle race

Fill the bottles with soda, water, juice… (whatever you can think of) and give one to each player. They will have to drink the bottle and the one who finishes it the fastest wins. Even better if they have their arms behind their back and cannot hold the bottle.

Don’t you know how to tie your shoes?

Something so simple, becomes very complicated when there is a huge belly involved. It is about men better understanding the difficulties that a future mother goes through. They must put a balloon under the shirt and try to tie the laces of their sneakers without bursting the balloon.

We have seen the idea in Fun baby shower games .

pregnant races

Guests must place a balloon under their shirt to simulate pregnancy and walk with a ping pong ball between their knees until they insert it into a boat. If you organize races, the game will be even more fun!

These are some of our proposals, but do not forget that imagination is power and more so when it comes to having fun. So why not invent your own games? You can organize the guests by gender, by age, or even by whether or not they are already parents. What it is about is the games, whether they are close, between couples or groups, to guarantee laughter.
