1- Diaper Fashion

After the arrival of a new baby, parents can feel like they are drowning in diapers. This favorite baby game shower game is just as much fun for the baby shower guests as it is for the mom-to-be.

At the baby shower, split the guests into two teams. Each team chooses an artist who picks up a card and tries to get their team to guess what they are drawing. When the time runs out, if their team can’t guess, the opposite team can steal the point.

32- Separation Anxiety

Race – Minute to win it

Materials Needed: m&ms, bowls

How to Play:

Give each participant a bowl of m&ms and 6 other bowls each labeled with one of the m&m colors. The idea is for each player to separate the m&ms by color into the bowls… in order. And they may only use one hand. After a minute is up, the contestant who went through the order the most times, wins!


33- Rush Delivery

Hilarious to watch – Great for co-ed showers

Materials Needed: 2 laundry baskets and balloons or 2 buckets and water balloons

How to Play:

This game is played in a relay fashion. Split the players into 2 equal teams. Each player in turn puts a balloon (or water balloon) in between their legs and wobble across to drop or “deliver” the baby into the laundry basket (or bucket) without using their hands. The first team to get all their babies delivered wins. 

If you use the regular balloons, you’ll soon realize that dropping them may be hard as they will gain static electricity, and if you use water balloons, make sure to be outside as they may pop in route!
