Any good ideas for games at a baby shower?

We decided not to know the gender so its been kinda heard for a theme.

  • Guess what's in the babies diaper. You melt candy bars or put peanut butter in a new born diaper. Then close it and pass it around. More then one diaper too. People can eat what's in there or smell it to see what it is. It's a fun and gross game at the same time.

  • What were doing for mine is having the ladies and men guess how much the baby is gonna weigh, and how long she is going to be and all that good stuff, or you can have people tear off pieces of string or toilet paper to the length they thing your belly is, and it has to wrap around your belly and your back. I think it would be quite fun to see what things people come up with

  • I have seen little tiny babies put into little cups (like dixie cups) and frozen. First cup to melt, hence the water breaking, gets a prize. But you had to let it sit on the table, you could not suck it or bite it. But it's up to the host. Plus there is always making a list of adult animals and writing as many of the baby animals names down, like a Deer is a Fawn, Owl is an Owlette. Google it and see what you come up with. If you have a fun group of people, you can team up with partners and make diapers with toilet paper. That is tons of fun.

  • Word scrambles are online, the baby diaper one w/ melted chocolate is great, also the baby food testing game, the one where you lay out a bunch of baby items covered up with a blanket - remove the blanket for 10 seconds then cover it back up and see who can write down what they saw. Another one is a game where you pop balloons and do whatever's inside them. They are things like, drink from a baby bottle, change a diaper with oven mitts one, change the babydoll's diaper blindfolded, eat a certain amount of babyfood (we used banana -- most palatable)...etc. You can do the game where no one is allowed to say the word baby. This is one of those that lasts through the entire shower. Everyone is given a certain number of diaper safety pins and they pin them to their clothes. If they catch someone saying the word baby anytime during the shower the person caught hands over one of the safety pins (we all started off with 4).

  • the one with the most safety pins at the end of the shower wins a BabyRuth or something.
