Five Fun but inexpensive and easy to organize Baby Shower Games

Celebrating the arrival of a new baby is the perfect reason for friends, family, and colleagues to get together. Have a look at our fun and inspiring baby shower game ideas and make the new mommies shower one to remember.
If you already have a theme for the shower, you are most definitely on your way to success. But do not worry if you are still in the planning/discovery stages, I am sure these ideas will help you choose your party's theme in no time.
Guess Who?

Here is what you will need:

  • A Baby photo of each guest attending the shower, number the photo on the back or with a sticker on the front. 
  • Blank lists with numbers corresponding the numbers on the photos, have one for each guest and may be a few extras.
  • Pens or pencils for each guest.

How to play:

The one of the first things you do when planning a baby shower is sending invitations to all the guests. Include the request for a baby photo of each guest in the invitation. You can ask them to bring it along on the day or to send it to you digitally with their RSVP. Collect all the Photos. When making up the venue for the shower post the pictures randomly around the venue. When guest arrives give each guest a blank numbered list to go around the venue and guess who the babies in the pictures are. Remember to add a cut-off time when the results will be shared and the winner announced. Make sure you have great prize for the winner.

What is on my back?

Here is what you will need:

  • Cardboard note cards
  • A pen or marker
  • Safety pins for each guest

How to play:

Before the shower prepare the card by writing random baby items on each card. Ex. Used diaper, Baby bottle, pacifier… As your guests arrive, randomly attach a card to the back of each guest using the safety pins. Now let your guests mingle and try to figure out what is on their back. Guests are only allowed to ask yes, no questions to try and figure out what has been pinned to their back. Once, a guest has correctly guessed what was on his/her back the card can be moved to the front. You can allocate prizes for first guest to have it correct and a booboo prize or trophy for the guest who figures it out last.

Do not Say Baby.

Here is what you will need:

  • 5 safety pins per guest

How to play:

When the guests arrive pin 5 safety pins to each guest and inform them of the rule that the word baby is not allowed. Now everyone needs to keep their ears open for the forbidden word. If a guest catches someone else using the forbidden word they can take a safety pin from that guest and add it to their own collection. At the end of the game the winner is the person with the most safety pins.

What does it cost?

Here is what you will need:

  • Photos/Pictures of baby essentials cut from a magazine or printed out.
  • Small prizes for the winners at least one prize per baby essential on the list
  • Pen/Pencils and paper for the guests

How to play:

Like in an auction display each item on the list and have your guest write what they think the item costs. Before you move on to the next item reveal the price and announce the winner. The winner will be the guest who came closest to the correct price without overshooting the actual price. Award the winner with a gift/prize.

How Old Was Mom to be?

Here is what you will need:

  • Photos of the mom-to-be at different ages. (Try to find funny Photos that will help with excitement)
  • Pen/Pencils and blank numbered list for each guest

How to play:

Scramble the picture and give each picture a number. Now make a display from the pictures and use it as a part of your decorations for the venue. When your guests arrive give each guest a blank numbered list, pen and let them guess what age the mother to be was on each photo. Later reveal the correct answers while showing the photo to guests again. The winner is the person with the most correct answers.
