  • might sound corny but my favorite is guessing how big the mommy to be's belly is by cutting a piece of string, tape or whatever. each person goes up to her, wraps it around her belly and whoever is closest wins.

  • How Many Baby Items Can You Name: Have each woman write down as many baby products as they can name (bottle, blanket, pacifier, etc) within 5 minutes. Prize goes to woman who gets the most.

    Guess How Many Safety Pins: (Materials- Safety Pins and Jar). Pass around a jar full of baby safety pins. The one who guesses the closest wins a baby shower prize.

    Baby Bingo: (Materials- Pens, Pre-Printed Bingo cards that use the numbers of how many people attend the baby shower) Prior to opening the baby shower gifts, number each gift on the box starting with one. If you know that 15 people will be attending your shower, pre-print bingo cards with numbers 1 through 15 and randomly place them on 15 cards. When the mommy-to-be's decides to open the presents, she grabs the present she wants to open and reads the number out loud. As soon as someone receives bingo, they win the baby shower game and the baby shower prize.

    Just to name a few!

  • have your guests write notes for the new one about wishes for him or her and can add to a baby book. Guess how much the baby might weight and even guess what time for delivery, taste and guess baby food flavors and the one with the most give a small prize, have a who can change the diaper the fastest or who can dress the baby the fastest for a small prize, bingo

  • While you are opening gifts, have someone write down all of the things you say.. Then towards the end of the shower.. that person will read off what they have written.. and instead of it being things you said while opening gifts.. it is the things you said to your husband the night the baby was concieved. lol. I was laughing so hard i was CRYING at my shower.. it was so fun! It's probably something for a less conservative group though... haha. Not really a game but... something that will get a few laughs for sure.

  • I like the lists you have to fill in answers about the mom to be. (like how much she weighed at birth, etc.)
