  • Baby Shower Bingo. The "Dirty Diaper" Game. (Little napkins are tied up and wrapped with a bow, the one of them gets something like an M&M or a squirt of mustard, whoever gets that one, wins the prize.
    I am sure there are more, but it sounds like you already have enough. We only played 2 at my shower.

  • another game you could play is the clothes pin(or what ever you choose to give) game..everyone gets one when they first arrive to the shower. then you pick a word(most use 'baby' since its a baby shower) and you Can't say baby! who ever hears someone say baby first gets their pin. this goes on back and forth all through the shower. the person at the end of the shower w the most pins, gets the prize! its a pretty funny game!

  • I like the game called whose water broke first. You place little baby things into icecube trays (like the mini rattles and craft things) and you fill it with water and let them freeze. At the beginning of the baby shower you put 2 or 3 in everyone glass of beverage (make sure its cold). The object of the game is to see who can get their ice to melt first to show an item. It is funny to see people trying to do things to melt the ice and yell my water broke.

  • At my baby shower we played the Candy Bar game. You can look up how to play online. It was super fun!

  • get some diapers and melt different candy bars in them everyone has to guess what kind they are.
    make a quiz about the mom and see who knows her best
    mix up the names of some baby items on paper and see who can figure them out first
    make a quiz from nursery rhymes

  • here are a couple we had at my shower

    - Diaper the Baby- take 2 baby dolls, 4 reclosable diaper, 2 blindfolds, and a stopwatch. two at a time the guests race to undiaper & rediaper their doll blindfolded. fastest one wins the prize.

    -Preggie Tummy- blow up a bunch of balloons the night before. Guests compete to see who can stuff the most balloons under their shirt.

    -Baby Food Taste Test- buy baby food and remove the labels. Challenge your guests to guess the baby food flavor. We did this with fruit (yum) and veggies :(

    -Clothespin Game- a slightly different version of the Clothespin game. Instead of having a word that guests say to lose their pin have an action, like crossing legs.
