Games at a baby shower are the best part if your the guest. It’s the time were you get to show off you awesome skills and when some cute prizes. As women if we had a list of our favorite kind of showers, baby showers would be on top. What’s better than watching mom-to-be open presents that include itty bitty outfits? Usually, after a baby shower 9 out of 10 women will have “baby fever.”
So seeing how I love baby showers I ran across an article while on Twitter. So of course I just had to check it out. It was about what games could be played at a baby shower. I have to say out of the 14 games I was intrigued by more than half of them. The instructions on them were so well detailed that the games wouldn’t be hard to replicate. So I decided I would share these games with you, my fab readers. Just to note that I didn’t come up with these games they are from a website I found. So I just want to give credit to that website and that author. I also have the link to the website posted on my Favs Page so that you can check out the website. Or you might need the link to get the instructions for the game since I did not write those down I only wrote down a breif description of each game.
#1.) Baby Shower Bingo
This game is so great to help encourage mommy-to-be to open her gift. It’s classic bingo with a twist. Instead of calling out numbers the bingo cards have presents on them and guests get to check the gift off as they are opened. First one to bingo wins!
#2.) Name That Baby Tune
It’s real simple with this one, but still fun. Guests get to test their music savvy. For a list of music that goes with the instructions of the game refer to the website on Favs and the list is on the last page of the article.
#3.) Pregnant Twister
Guests play while being prego but with a twist. They can test their skills and flexability while wearing a faux prego belly during a game of twister. Instructions can be found on website.
#4.) Don’t Call Me Baby
Can you go through a whole party and not say the word baby? Test guests self-control and listening skills while calling out those who slip.
#5.) Who’s The Baby?
Guests will bring their own baby picture and hand them over to the designated photo holder. The designated photo holder will randomly hold up photos of the guests and let them see if they can guess who it is.
#6.) Who’s The Celebrity Baby?
Put your guests to the test. See if they have celeb knowledge and let them see if they can guess the celeb baby.
#7.) What Will Baby Look Like?
This one is one of my favorite and will be for laughs in the end. Guests will combine their own self portrait with a photo of their fav dreamy celeb so everyone can see what their baby would look like. Instructions are in detail on the website.
#8.) Baby Stroller Olympics
Guests can test their skills by having an obstacle race with baby strollers. Best time without hitting obstacles win!
#9.) Just Ask Mama
On indvidual notecards each guest will write a question that only a new momma would ask. Then the guests pass the cards off to each other so they can take turns writing on the back their answers to the questions. More instructions and how to win on website.
#10.) What’s The Story?
Guests have to write a short story together on the spot using a select list of words. By taking turns with each sentence the more strange and funny the story gets the better the ending. Instructions and the list of select words are on website.
#11.) Saving Time
Guests will make a time capsule for a new baby by each guests putting in one current item for the year the baby was born. One example would be a current newspaper. One hint for you is to tell the guests before the shower about this game so they can show up with the needed materials. Check website for more information.
#12.) Wanna Make A Bet?
Each guests will take turns placing a bet on a date they think the baby will be born. Someone will need to keep a list with each guests name and the amount of the bet. Another person will need to keep the money. Further instruction on website.
#13.) Quilting Time
Each guest will be provided with their own quilting square. Guests will then be instructed to decorate the square any way they want.
#14.) Perfect Timing
See who has the gift of punctuality in this gift-opening game of chance — and let guests, not just the guest of honor, take home a few goodies, too.
***Well this was the 14 I wrote down from the site. There a couple bonus games that I didn’t include, but if your interested in those too then head on over to the site I have on the page “Favs.” I hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed it. Some of tthese games I just thought were too neat not to tell you all about. I know the next baby shower I host I will be trying out a couple of these.
