|Baby Shower Games
1. Pin the diaper on the baby -
using a large posterboard and a magic marker, draw a large picture of a baby. On a separate piece of paper, draw and cut out a picture of a diaper (or bottle, pacifier, rattle, etc) and stick double sided tape on the back. Blindfold your guests and have them try to stick the bottle on the baby's bottom. The person closest to the intended target wins.
2. Pin the diaper on the baby boy -
This is a gag game, so make sure mom-to-be is in a mood to be messed with before attempting. Set the game up the same as above, only this time ask mother-to-be (or daddy-to-be or anyone else you'd like to play a joke on) to go first. After putting on the blindfold, have someone sneak up on mom and spray her with a small water gun, to prepare her for the "surprises" we get when changing a baby boy's diaper!
3. Bottle bowling -
Set up 10 baby bottles in a triangle shape starting with 1 in the front (might work best in a hallway type area). Give guests a tennis ball or other small ball, and have them try to knock down all 10 "pins". Person with the best score wins.
4. Bottle ring toss
Take the nipple rings off several baby bottles. You can either set up some sort of container (like a baby bathtub) and have guests toss the rings into the container from a fair distance away, or make it horseshoe style by having them try to toss the rings around a bottle nipple (very difficult!)
5. Stuff your shirt
Award a prize to the person who can fit the most balloons under their shirt (don't blow the balloons up too full for this or you might not get many people fitting more than one).
6. Pregnant belly races
After having guests stuff their shirts, as mentioned above, have them race around the yard while not letting any balloons fall out.
7. A day in the life of mom - Also known as Distractions
Give guests a series of challenges to complete (diaper the baby, fold laundry...) and have guests shout out distractions (such as the phone is ringing, dinner is burning, the baby woke up). Time the guests to see who completes their challenges the quickest.
8. Feed the baby
Hilarious game, especially at couples showers. Have one partner be "the baby" and the other partner be the parent. See who can feed an entire jar of baby food, using a small spoon, to their partner the fastest. For added laughs, make the "parent" hold the spoon in their mouth while playing and make them hold their hands behind their backs! You'll want to take pictures of this one!
9. Balloon pop/action
Write different actions on several small pieces of paper (such as eat a jar of baby food, or drink soda from a baby bottle). Insert the papers inside a balloon, and then inflate the balloon and tie. Have guests pop the balloons by sitting on them then complete the challenges inside. If you would like to make teams, have one person pop the balloon and the other person perform the action. You may time the guests to determine a winner.
10. Craft making -
Have guests decorate t-shirts/onesies for the baby using puff paints and markers, or have them put together a scrapbook for baby.
