11 Types of Baby Shower Games That Are Fun and Exciting

2. Funny Games


Because I Said So!

What you’ll need:

  • Pens and paper slips for each guest
  • Bowl to collect the slips

How to play:

Ask guests to write down a parenting saying or piece of advice that they associate with their mom or dad on a slip of paper. It should be short. Then, put all the slips in a bowl, mix them up, and let everyone draw one (making sure no one draws her own saying). Have fun guessing who wrote each saying, and whether she would say it to her own child.


Don’t Drop the (Egg) Baby

What you’ll need:

  • 1 egg for each guest
  • Paints, food coloring, markers, etc.
  • Large wooden spoon for each guest

How to play:

Ask your shower guests to decorate an egg to look like a baby, using paints, food coloring, or other decorations. Then organize a race in which each guest carries the egg “baby” on a spoon. The spoon can be held by hand or between the teeth, and the race can be a standard point-to-point race or a relay race. This game may be best for outdoor baby showers but can be done indoors if you have a large indoor area that tolerates spills. Play with hardboiled eggs to avoid messy breaks!


Ice Ice Baby!

What you’ll need:

  • An ice cube tray
  • Small plastic babies, one for each guest (you can get these from a party store)

How to play:

For a unique baby shower game, place the plastic babies in the ice tray, pour water over them, and freeze the night before. When the guests arrive, remove the babies from the ice tray and put an ice baby in each person’s drink. Your guests will need to pay attention to the melting baby, and shout the words “My water broke!” when the baby completely melts out of the ice cube. The first who calls it wins.


Play Dough Babies

What you’ll need:

  • Play dough (purchased or homemade) in different colors
  • Baking cups

How to play:

Get your guests’ creative juices going with play dough. Give everyone a baking cup and a few different colored pieces of dough, and set a timer for 15 minutes. The aim of the game is to see who can create the cutest dough baby in the given time. You can make things fun by adding plastic knives, pencils, or anything else that can help your guests get artistic. Of course, mom decides the winner.


We’re Having a Baby!

What you’ll need:

  • Balloons
  • Pins

How to play:

Split the guests up into teams of four or five, and give each guest a balloon. When you say “go,” someone from each team must blow up the balloon and stick it under her shirt. Then, the second person must blow up a balloon and stick it under her shirt and so on until all the team members have balloons under their shirts. Then, using a pin, the first person must pop her own balloon through her shirt, and then the second person does the same, and so on. The first team to pop all the balloons wins the game. Or if you prefer not to use pins, you can try to bump your “bellies” against each other to burst the balloons.
