Best Baby Shower Games Ever!
Baby Mad Libs
Pre-write a story about the mother and baby with some adjectives, nouns and verbs left out. Have guests provide words to fill in the missing blanks, and then read the stories out loud. Cue giggles.
Don't Say Baby
Give all guests a pin (a pacifier on a string works too) to wear around their necks. If someone catches a guest saying "baby," she takes the pin. Whoever has the most pins at the end of the shower wins a prize.
Guess the Baby Animal
Have a list of animal species names ready. Guests will guess the species' baby animal name -- like cat and kitten, only a little more challenging. Did you know a cygnet is a baby swan?
Ask guests beforehand to supply a baby picture of themselves. Hang up the pictures at the party and have people guess which picture belongs to who.
Draw a Baby
Give each guest a paper plate and a pencil. Have everyone put the plate on their head and give them one minute to "draw" a picture of a baby on the plate -- no peeking! Best drawing, as judged by the guest of honor, wins.
Guess the Poop
In the mood for a bit of gross but delicious fun? Melt mini candy bars into diapers, and have guests taste the contents of each diaper to guess which candy bar it was.
Tape a picture of a famous mom (or celeb preggo) on the backs of your guests without letting them see. Have them try to guess who their celebrity is by asking "yes" or "no" questions of the other guests.
Newsworthy Nursing Bra
Give guests newspaper, scissors and tape and tell them to design a nursing bra -- extra points for style and functionality. Best design, as modeled by the mom-to-be, wins a prize.
Sweet Potatoes or Carrots?
Have guests taste and try to guess flavors of baby food; make it interesting by looking for combos, and seeing if players can name both flavors.
Create a playlist of songs with the word "baby" in the title. Play the songs at the shower and have guests guess the title and artist. Bonus favor idea: Burn copies of the CD and add a homemade cover for guests to take home as a favor.
