New and Different Baby Shower Games

GAME PLAN: Need some unusual new and different baby shower games? Well, if you're tired of playing the same old games at baby showers, perk up the party with some of these pregnant possibilities!

  • "Belly Bulge" - To make the mother-to-be feel at home, ask the guests to come "pregnant," wearing maternity smocks stuffed with pillows. Then at game time, have the guests replace the pillows with their gifts. Mom-to-be must feel each "belly" and guess the gift underneath.
  • "Baby Food Taste Test" - Buy eight jars of baby food - cereal, fruit, veggies, and meat. Cover the jars with foil and write a number on the side of each jar. Pass out plastic spoons, paper plates, and paper and pencil for each player. Ask players to write the numbers 1 through 8 around the outside of the plate. Pass around each jar of baby food and have players drop a spoonful next to each number. They must taste the globs and try to identify each flavor. Remove the foil to reveal the answers. Whoever has the most correct answers wins a prize. You'll get some funny faces during the tasting so keep the camera handy!
  • "Baby Business" - Buy 10 baby objects that aren't easily identified, such as a nose syringe, a temperature strip, a breast pump, a teething ring, and so on. Distribute paper and pencil and ask players to try guess what each object does. The player with the most correct answers is the winner. Present a basket of the objects to the Mom-to-be.
  • "Guess Who?" - Have the guests bring their baby pictures to the party. Tape each picture to a sheet of paper. Pass around the baby pictures and have players try to identify each baby. For added fun, write crazy captions underneath the pictures, such as "Future President?" or "What are you lookin' at?"
  • "Surprise Prize" - In this game, the gift is a personal gift for the mother to be.  As a surprise, don't tell anyone who the gift is actually for (especially the mother-to-be), but let everyone think that anyone can unwrap the gift and win.  Also, make sure that the mother-to-be is sitting the closest to the front door (see #2). To see who starts the game, have a pen or pencil and a piece of paper for everyone. Tell everyone to put their pen or pencil in the opposite hand that they write with and when you say go they are to write their first and last name. The first one done gets to unwrap the outside layer of the gift only (see #6 below).

(This game can also be played at a bridal shower, instead of baby shower).

  1. Wrap the gift and attach this verse on top of the gift: "We can not defer any longer the rightful one must know for her this gift was intended the mother to be (name), to her it must go."
  2. Wrap again and attach this verse: "Another wrapping must come off, there can not be many more. Give it now to her that sits closest to the front door."
  3. Wrap again and attach this verse: "The one who has the longest shoe on this gay occasion should have the gift passed on to her by way of consolation."
  4. Wrap again and attach this verse: "Since this is not for you or her with the bluest eyes, perhaps the one with the broadest grin should carry off the prize."
  5. Wrap again and attach this verse: "We are sorry to disappoint and must apologize, please give this gift without delay to her with the bluest eyes."
  6. Wrap again - there is no verse for this one.

Let the Games Begin!
