Games:

Baby Photo Game

Collect baby photos of your guests before the party, assign a number to each, and see who can match the adults to their younger selves the quickest.

 

All mothers know you can never have enough onesies. Buy plain onesies in various sizes, and ask guests to decorate one for the baby. Provide paints, markers, rubber stamps and stamping pads, and a needle and thread for embroidering.

 

Don't say Baby  - Anytime someone says the word baby they have to pay a quarter to the baby fund. Buy a Baby's first piggy bank, you can also make all the women wear necklaces or saftey pins to take away from each other and the person with the most at the end wins.  Even if they don't have a pin or necklace they still have to pay a quarter in baby's first bank.

 

No Crossing no cussing  - you cannot cuss and you can not cross your arms, legs, toes fingers...nothing or you pay a quarter.  See Don't say Baby game for other ways

 

Baby Sketch Game -

Give each guest a paper plate and a pen or pencil and tell them to draw a picture of a baby and they have 30 seconds to finish the drawing. However instead of doing the drawing with the plate in front of them, they have to hold it on top of their head, whilst they are drawing.   The mommy judges which picture is the best and which is the funniest, with some prompting and advice from the audience in general.   

 

The Price is Right shower game -

Get 10 to 20 items relating to babies and list exactly how much each item cost.
Show all of the guests one of these items, and ask them one at a time what they think each item cost and to also write down the cost so that this can be remembered.
Repeat this process with each item. The guest who guesses the most and closest price to the right price wins the game.
Examples of items:
Baby food,
Baby Toy,
Rattle,
Diapers,
Baby's bottle,
Diaper pins,
Bib,
Teether,
and so on.
It would help the guests to figure out the price if you could tell the guests which store each item was bought from.    

 

Birthing Babies Game

Buy Plastic babies from a cake decorating store. Get an ice cube tray and half fill each cube section with water and then freeze it.
When it has frozen, place the babies with one in each cube section Then fill the tray to the top with water and freeze it again.

When the game is about to start, take out the baby-cubes and give one to each one of your guests in their drink.

The first baby to be 'born', when the ice cube melts and the baby is free, wins the game.    

 

 

Baby Shower Right and Baby Shower Left - (Materials: a baby shower prize and the following story to be read) - DIRECTIONS: Form a circle with all baby shower participants. Each time you hear the word "right", pass the baby shower wrapped prize to the person on your right. When you hear the word "left", pass the baby shower prize to the person on your left. When you finish this story the person holding the item is the winner of it. Have either the mommy-to-be start the game or choose who holds the prize first. Here is the story to read when playing:

This is a story about Mrs. Wright's baby shower tea party. She lived right at the end of Lefty Lane, the third house on the left. Today, Mrs. Wright's was hosting a baby shower tea party. The women would enter left, right through the front door and greet Mrs. Wright, they would head right down the stairs, turning left then right into Mrs. Wright's family room where the mommy-to-be was.

Two of the girls were left-handed so they would sit at the left of the table. Mrs. Wright held up her right hand and all of her friends grew quiet, except the left-handed girl on the right patting Mrs. Wright's dog named Hefty Lefty.

Mrs. Wright asked Sarah Wright and Julie Wright to pass out the teacups starting to the left. Sarah Wright and Julie Wright started out left but turned back because they left the cups just to the right of the table, right next to the spoons. Mrs. Wright said, "That's all right."

Mrs. Wright began to serve her friends some pie when Grandma Wright smelled the delicious desserts and left her bedroom to join the Wright girls. She went down the stairs and turned left than right, right into Mrs. Wright's family room.

Grandma Wright knocked and entered left and sat in the rocking chair on the left. Sarah Wright and Julie Wright invited Grandma Wright to join them at the table.

Grandma Wright had been to many baby showers as a young girl and right before they realized it, Grandma Wright was telling them a stories from when she was the mommy-to-be and went to the right cabinet and in the left drawer were pictures of her baby shower.

As the party ended right on time, they all put their dishes right in the left side of the sink and thanked Mrs. Wright and Grandma Wright for such a wonderful time. Soon, all of the women from the Wright baby shower tea party turned right than left, then left again to return to the front door and out to the right car that they arrived in. Down lefty lane they went. Now who ended up with the right gift?

Memorize it - :  Have the mom to be open up the gifts and the hostess writes down all the gifts that she got and who gave it to her, after that is over have someone deposit all gifts to the car of the mom to be then the fun begins.  How many people paid attention to what or who gave her the gifts.  Give people a pen and paper, and have them write down as much as they remember.

 

Baby Scrapbook -  (Materials: Scrap book, ribbons, stickers, colorful pens etc) - A real neat baby shower activity is to make a baby scrapbook for the parent's to be. Give everyone a page to create borders, pictures, and little sayings so you can place them all in the book for the mother to be to use when taking pictures of the birth and on. It is a great way to have everyone participate in the memories. It is even fun to take a picture at the party of every baby shower participant and place it on the back of the page so you know who did the page for you and who attended the baby shower. Lots of times stores such as Garden Ridge, Hobby Lobby, Michaels have discontinued items that cost as much as a dollar and as little as 25 cents. Thanks to Mrs. O for this great idea.

 

Baby Shower Food Race - (Materials: 4 blindfolds, 4 baby bottles, 4 plates, 4 baby food jars) - Get all baby shower guests that want to participate in pairs of 2. Each pair gets a baby food jar, baby bottle with apple juice(or some other type of drinkable liquid) and a blindfold. The one person in the pair that has the jar of baby food will get blindfolded and will have to feed their partner while both sitting across from each other in chairs. When they are done with the whole jar of baby food, the person blindfolded has to drink what is in the bottle to win. The first team to do this the quickest while racing wins! You can also have fun by replacing the babyfood with Jell-O or pudding to make it taste better but place it in the jars for authentic purposes :)

 

Baby Bottle Thaw - (Materials: mini baby bottles 1/2" - 1" for each baby shower participant and plastic shooter cups or medicine cups) - put the baby bottle in the small plastic shooter cups or medicine cups and fill with water and freeze (this would mean that the bottle is frozen in the shooter cup/medicine cup). At the shower give one to everyone and tell them the baby wants the bottle, they have to melt the ice by breathing on it or holding it, whoever gets their bottle out first wins
