You’re near your due date! So, let’s party! How about some fun baby shower games?
One of the best parts about being pregnant is having a party and the baby shower games and prizes! There are hundreds upon hundreds of them out there, but we have collated a list of easy and fun baby games to play at your baby shower, so you don’t have to trawl the internet looking for them. These are voted by our staff as being the ‘funnest’ of the lot!READ MORE How to Organise an Epic Baby Shower
1. Memory Games
On a large tray, collect together baby-related items – dummy, nappy rash cream, nappy, rattle, nail clippers, teething ring etc, and cover with a tea towel. Give each guest a pen and paper and show them the contents of the tray for one minute. Remove the tray from the room and give them three minutes to write down as many items from the tray as they can remember. The guest who writes down the most correct items wins!
So there’s some fun games you can try, but you also need some prizes for the winners. You can pretty much use your imagination here, but a few suggestions include:
Small bottles of wine
Box of chocolates
Shower gels/bath oils
An alternative to that is this Baby Poop Memory Game!
So to play this game, you will to guess the 23 different types of baby poo every parent will come across. It’s more fun than educational and will definitely make you break into continuous laughter!
2. My Water Has Broken Game
Grab a packet of tiny dolls from your local junk shop and freeze them into ice cubes!
3. The Clothes Peg Game or Don’t Call me ‘Baby’ Game
This one is really fun! As each guest arrives at the party, give them two pegs, and tell them that they need to peg them anywhere on their clothes. Once everyone has arrived, you need to explain how the game works. The aim is to be the person with the MOST pegs. You can take a peg off someone if they say a particular word (you can choose a word like “baby” or “cute” as your taboo word – something that you know people are going to say a lot!) So, if someone says the taboo word, one peg only can be taken off that person. The person who takes the peg then pegs it to their own clothes. At the end of the party, the guest with the most pegs on their clothes is the winner!
4. The Guess the Bump Game
For this game, all you need are some wool. Guests have to estimate the circumference of the mum-to-be’s belly by taking a long piece of toilet roll paper. (If you have string, then you cut off a length of string that you estimate will fit around the mum’s pregnant belly). After each person has taken their length of paper from the roll, each person must wrap the toilet paper around the mum-to-be’s belly to measure it, and the winner is the person who is the most accurate!

5. Guess the Pureed Baby Food Game
This one involves taste testing! Buy a few jars of baby food before the party and you will also need some plastic spoons.

The person with the most correct answers at the end of the game wins!
