Some Typical Baby Shower Games

By Suzi Sinclair

Baby shower games make a mom-to-be’s special day more fun, and they create lots of laughs and warm memories as well. There are a number of games that are traditionally played at baby showers, and they are called baby bottles, looking to match baby pictures with adults attending the shower, baby bingo, guessing how big the pregnant mom’s belly is, and dirty diapers. Each of these different games will be discussed in detail below.

To begin, the baby bottles game is an old favorite. It is especially fun when the shower includes males and females. Bottles are filled with milk and assorted beverages, and whoever finishes drinking first gets a prize. This game is a wonderful ice-breaker, and it can lead to many laughs. Beverages typically used are sodas, milk, and juice. Alcohol is not the best idea given that the mom-to-be would not be able to participate.

Trying to match guests’ baby pictures with the right people is yet another game that is often time played at baby showers. Those invited to the shower will be asked to send the event organizer a baby picture of himself or herself. Then, at the party, everyone can try to figure out the adults who correspond with the baby pictures. The person who gets the most correct matches wins a prize.

Playing bingo with a baby twist is a very popular game at baby showers. It entails giving all the attendees bingo cards. One individual will lead the game, and this person will list different items that a baby needs (for instance, diapers, bottles, etc.) The people playing bingo have to circle whatever items are called out on their cards. Those eventually achieving straight or diagonal lines of circles get prizes. There is usually over one winner of the baby bingo game.

Figuring out the size of the pregnant mom’s belly is an additional game that is often times played at showers. Those attending the event will place paper or string around the baby bump of the mom. Comparisons will then be made between the true measurement and the guesses of the attendees. Whichever guest comes closest to the true length wins a prize.

As unpleasant as it sounds, dirty diapers is actually another fun game to play at baby events. Real diapers are filled with popular chocolate bars. The guests have to figure out what kind of chocolate is in the diaper. If two or more people guess the right chocolate, they can all get prizes or they can then be asked to taste different baby foods and guess the flavors to break the tie.

Other game ideas for showers can be found online, in parenting magazines, and through family and friends. Those organizing the event can make up their own fun games as well. The materials needed for these festivities can be located in abundance on the Internet and in craft shops.

To conclude, games filled a baby shower with great fun and memories. Some of the more popular ones include drinking from baby bottles, trying to match guests’ baby pictures with the right people, playing bingo with a baby twist, guessing the size of the shower honoree’s belly, and figuring out what candy is in a “dirty” diaper. Magazines geared toward parents, the Internet, and other parents are great resources for different games, and new games can be made up as well. Craft shops and online stores are the top places to look were supplies for the games are concerned.
