  • You can start a baby shower game as soon as the people arrive. Give each person a safety pin and tell them they are not suppose to say the word "BABY" and if they do they get their safety pin taken away by the person that heard them. Whoever has the most safety pins at the end wins a prize. You can give salt and pepper shakers. You can give party favor bags with candies or any other goodies as prizes. You can also do the how big is the mother-to-be's tummy (circumference). You can get a roll of toilet paper pass it around and each guest has to rip a strip of toilet paper and when everyone is done they have to go up to the mom-to-be and see who got the on how big the mom-to-be's tummy is.

  • I'm a party planner and probably the most popular one we do is Mystery in the Diaper! You melt different kinds of chocolate bars on a diapers and people need to smell and taste it then guess what it is. The most common chocolate bars used is like snickers, mr. goodbar, baby ruth, and hersheys. For a prizes the most popular would be gift baskets of lotions and soaps, pretty much any kind of spa basket. Have fun and good luck!

  • at my shower, we played three games, a memory game, where a tray is layed out near the guest book, and then during the party someone walks around with the tray and people have to right down what they saw, and who gets the most right, wins a prize. Or right down a list of baby names and see if people can guess what your going to name the baby. That is, if you know the name of your baby. My bf and i had our names when i was only three weeks pregnant LOL.
