The Best Baby Shower Games

I’m at that point in my life where everyone around me is getting pregnant whether it’s with their first, second, or whatever number of baby. It’s just the stage of life I’m in I guess.

It also means that I have hosted and attended a lot of baby showers and baby sprinkles in the past few years since my son was born. And served this sausage egg breakfast casserole a lot.





It also means that I’ve been asked to come up with unique baby shower games so that people aren’t playing the same ones over and over again!

  2. They’re hilarious – both to play and for others to watch.
  3. They’re quick – both to setup and to play
  4. They’re unique – I can guarantee you haven’t played these games are other baby showers (unless they’ve seen this post!)
  5. They’re perfect for coed showers!

How to Play

Pick whichever ones sound the most fun to you and go for it. We typically play them as minute to win it games , but you can play them as individual games as well.

If you want to play them minute to win it style, read this minute to win it games post first for more instructions!

Otherwise, just keep reading for individual game instructions and watch the video below to see many of the games in action!

Tip!

If you will have multiple generations at the party, make sure to split the different generations among teams!

Baby Shower Game Ideas

1 – Bottle to Bottle

Supplies:

How to Play:

Fill one baby bottle with sprinkles then put a piece of double-sided tape 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.

Some of the sprinkles will likely get stuck on the tape but the majority of them should be able to make their way through to the other bottle.

2 – Rock A Bye Baby

Supplies:

How to Play:

This game is played in pairs. Give each pair a pair of fuzzy baby pjs and a bucket full of these little plastic babies. On the other side of the room, place a bucket or box.

Playing fun baby shower games at home

When you say go, one person should hold the feet of the pjs while the other person holds the top of the pjs.

Then the team should put a baby in the middle of the pjs and use the pjs to fling the baby across the room, hopefully landing the baby in the bucket.

3 – Diaper Hang

Supplies:

How to Play:

Before the game, hang a string from one place to another.

Provide players with a bucket full of diapers and clothespins like these ones. Players must hang as many diapers as possible using just the clothespins on a string or clothesline in the allotted time.

4 – Bottle Toss

Supplies:

How to Play:

Remove the top part, the part a baby sucks on, from the baby bottle – you’ll be using those for the game.

This game is played in pairs. One player will have 5 (or another number) of the bottle tops and have to toss them over to their partner who has to try and catch them on a chopstick .

If they catch one, they can put it in their “caught” pile. If they drop it, it returns to the tossing player to try again.

5 – Five Little Ducks

Supplies:

How to Play:

This game is played in pairs as well. Give each pair a bucket full of small ducks like this one and set up an empty bucket across the room.

One player on each team should stand on one side of the room. Their partner should stand in the middle of the room between their partner and the empty bucket.

Five little ducks is one of the best baby shower games

To play, the first player on the team has to toss ducks over their partner’s head (who has to duck) and try and land them in the basket on the other side of the room. First team to land five ducks wins.

To play, players must toss Swedish Fish across the room and their partner must catch the fish in their mouth.

As soon as a player catches a fish, they must switch with their partner and continue tossing until the minute is out. The team that catches the most wins.

Catching baby sharks is one of the most unique baby shower games


13 – Name that Nursery Rhyme

Supplies:

  • Index cards with lines from nursery rhymes written on them (e.g., the mouse ran up the clock)

How to Play:

Put all of the index cards into a pile. 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. It’d also be fun to play nursery rhyme charades using the same index cards!

Game Tip!

Make sure to choose the most popular nursery rhymes that everyone will know! Otherwise, this one might get really tough.

14 – Bathtub Bounce

How to Play:

If you go with baby, make sure they go in order – they can’t use one of the B’s twice.

16 – Baby Sitter

Supplies:

  • Balloons
  • The letters B-A-B-Y written out on slips of paper

How to Play:

Put one letter in four balloons and blow up the balloons.

Baby letters like baby sitter and baby shower games

If you have a mother-to-be who doesn’t like games, skip them all together.
