are perfect for a baby sprinkle, a traditional baby shower, or a baby shower for a second baby. If you’re looking for free baby shower games that everyone will love, you’ve come to the right place! Definitely some of the most unique baby shower games you’ll find out there and if not the most unique, the most fun baby sprinkle games!
How to Play These Baby Shower Games
I’m at that point in my life where everyone around me is having their 2nd (or 3rd) child, like everyone. Most of my close friends who had babies the same year as my son either have had their second already or are pregnant and due any day. One of the trends that I’ve noticed lately is that instead of hosting full out baby showers for second (or 3rd) time moms, people are hosting smaller parties called “Baby Sprinkles.” We played these games at a “Sprinkled with Love” baby sprinkle, but they’d work with any of these
baby shower themes for girls
and depending on the number of guests attending the baby sprinkle, there are three different ways you can play them. You choose. No matter which way you choose, I guarantee they’ll still be fun. And I’ve designed the games so that they are all family-friendly, so feel free to invite kids and husbands along with the women! Any of these would be perfect for coed baby shower games!
Style #1: Man vs. Clock –
In this version, one player will be trying to beat the clock for each game. So for instance, they will have to try and get all of the sprinkles from one bottle to another within a minute (hence the Minute to Win It). If they do, they win a prize. If not, let someone else have a shot. If you go with this style, I recommend choosing a different person for each game.
Style #2: Head to Head
– In this style, you’ll pick two players for each game who will going head to head against each other playing a game rather than trying to beat the clock. So you’ll give each person a bottle and see who can get the sprinkles from one bottle to the next first. The first person to finish wins the prize. Again, rotate through pairs for each game, repeating players as necessary.
Style #3: Team Competition
– In this style, you’ll split your group into two (or 3 or 10 depending on the number of guests) teams. For each game, teams must choose one player to compete head to head in the game with the other teams. So for instance, each team will be given a bottle and the first team to finish will receive 10 points, the second team will receive 5, etc. This works best if you have quite a few people and is a good way to get everyone involved cheering for their team.
Hilarious Baby Shower Games (or Baby Sprinkle Games)
I’ve included 20 different baby shower games that incorporate baby items and sprinkles throughout. If you’re looking for just traditional baby shower games, feel free to skip the ones that are sprinkle specific if they don’t make sense for your party. And you by no means have to do all of these, this list is meant to be a long list for you to choose from, not a
list of games
that you have to play all together. Pick your favorites and go with those.
If you’d like to play all of these games, you’ll need the following:
or paper with a medium size hole in it over the opening of the bottle (no nipple). Take another bottle and put it upside down (so the two openings are touching) on the other bottle and tape together.
Players must transfer sprinkles from one bottle to the other bottle to win.
#2 – Sprinkle Sort
Buy a package of the large multi-colored sprinkles and pour a spoonful into a cup. Put the cup in the middle of a small table (or other surface) and surround the cup with other small cups, the number of cups around the perimeter should be equal to the number of colors of sprinkles.
For the game, players must sort the sprinkles by color into the cups. This

would be perfect because you could divide them up evenly easily!

and freeze them into ice cubes. For this game, give each player one ice cube and the first player to melt their ice cube and get their baby out first wins.
#7 – Sprinkle Food All Around

empty baby food jars

binkies like these ones
like this one would be great) filled with all of the typical things you might find in a diaper bag (diapers, snacks, toys, clothes, etc.) including a blue or pink sock. Teams must search through the diaper bag to be the first one to find the hidden sock.
#14 – Name that Nursery Rhyme
Before the party, put together a pile of index cards that have lines from nursery rhymes on them. Players must pick a card from the pile and name the correct nursery rhyme as quickly as possible. Once they name one, they can move onto the next card and try to get as many as possible in the minute. Players can pass if they don’t know it, but they can’t come back and try it again.
Give each player an empty Luvs diapers box. Players must balance the box on their head as long as possible. If this it too difficult for your players, allow them to use one hand to help balance the box.
) at the end and fill it with water. Players must bounce ping pong balls from one side of the table to the other, trying to get as many ping pong balls into the bathtub as possible in the minute. For a little added fun, try these
