Baby Food Feast

You will need teams of three, 2 blind folds per team, 1 baby spoon per team, bibs, and baby food.

Split your guests into teams of three. Two of the three people on each team will be blindfolded and will stand across from one another. One of the blindfolded players will feed the other blindfolded player baby food, while the third player coaches the feeder which way to go (left, right, up, or down). The first team to empty all the baby food wins!

Hint: try using individual cups of applesauce or pudding cups you can buy at the store to make the game better tasting and empty out half of each cup so you won’t make the players sick by eating too much too fast. — Submitted by Jennifer B.

“Let’s Make a Deal” Purse Game

Have all the ladies get their purses and let them know the rules. Using the list below, or make up your own, call out the items one by one.

The first person to produce the item from their purse (not just “say” they have it) and shout it out wins a prize. Keep this going until all your prizes are gone.

Note: To allow for more winners you can allow only one prize per person, or limit it to only 2 or 3 prizes per person. Since some girls will have much bigger purses with lots more items this may help the “small purse girls” win a prize, too.

“What Not To Wear!” Gift Pass

Play this game just like “musical chairs”, but with a funny twist, and instead of the guests moving, they are passing a gift box instead.

Before the party buy a pretty corsage and wrap it in a gift box. Tell your guests that whomever is left holding the box at the end of the game has to wear whatever in inside the box for the rest of the party. Naturally, everyone will assume it is something embarrassing and will do their best to pass the box quickly!

Have all your guests sit in a circle and hand the first person the “gift”. Start the music and have your guests it until the music stops. When it stops whomever is holding the gift is “out.” The last person holding the gift box is the “winner”.

Have the winner open the box, and then wait for the huge sigh of relief (and laughs from the other guests) when they realize it’s a lovely corsage!

“What a Mess!” Race with Baby

You’ll need 1 baby doll for each player, a diaper bag (or something similar) and a paper grocer bag filled with random items (a laundry basket with clothes would work, too), basically the items any new mom would be carrying on a day to day basis that would have her arms full. Create racing lanes for each player to have a race. In each lane drop 5-10 baby objects like bottles, pacifiers, small toys and bibs randomly from start to finish.

Each player will gather at one end of their racing lane holding their baby in one arm, the diaper bag over their shoulder, and the grocery bag or laundry basket in the other arm. The objective of the game is for each player to run down the lane, bend and pick up the objects on the ground, putting them in the diaper bag, all while carrying their “baby” and laundry/groceries. The person who collects all the baby items and get to the end of their lane first wins.

For larger parties you can have teams. The first person runs and picks up one item, runs to the end, then returns to the start. They then pass the baby, the groceries, and the diaper bag to the second team member to run the race and pick up one item, etc, until all the team members have gone. First team to pick up all their items and finish the race wins.

While it may sound easy, every person who has ever had a child knows this not to be the case. Don’t be surprised when you see some women trying to put the baby in the grocery bag! This is against the rules, but it is hillarious to watch the craziness. This game can be a little bit of a workout so make sure your guests are up to the action.

Ballooning Belly

Blow up a bunch of small sized balloons. The aim of the game is to have the players create their own “baby belly” with the balloons. Have the guests stuff as many of the balloons under their shirt as they can without popping them to form a belly. The guest who can stuff the most number of balloons inside her shirt and create the largest belly – wins. Be prepared to blow up loads of balloons for this game and have extra balloons to blow up if needed.

It’s a great sight to see woman wearing fitted tops and dresses have a go at this one and you will be surprised at how many balloons women can get in their shirts when they are trying to win!

Baby Shower Raffle

As your guests arrive hand them each one half of a raffle ticket and place the other in a jar or bucket. You can easily print your own on your computer or buy a full roll of “real” raffle tickets online or at a party store. Once all the guests have arrived shake the ticket bucket up and get the mother to be to pull out the winning number (or numbers) and award a prize. You can easily draw a as many winners as you like to hand out door prizes or favors.

For a twist, You can also inform guests on your invitations that there will be a raffle at the shower and each ticket will cost them a baby supply item. Guests can then buy as many raffle tickets as they want with baby products like diapers, formula, bottles and bibs. Some guests will end up with 1 or 2 tickets, other guests may end up with 10 or more tickets, but the mom-to-be will walk away the winner with all her soon-to-be much needed baby supplies.

Baby Belly Girth Guess

Get a spool of thread or ribbon and ask each guest to cut off as much ribbon as they think is required to go around the belly of the mother to be. Some of the guests cut off ribbon that could go around the mother to be twice! Of course the mother to be may be offended if she is sensitive about her weight so tread carefully. The person closest to the actual girth wins.

As a variation you can use toilet paper and have the guests pull off how many sheets around they think mommy’s belly is.

Race To The Labor Room

Buy medium sized water balloons and fill enough for each guest to have multiples. Make all the guests stand at a start line and give each one a water balloon. Have the player hold it between the knees and race to the finish line without dropping it.

If the balloon falls and breaks the guest has to shout, “My water broke”, run back to the start line, grab another water balloon and start over. The guest who reaches the finish line first with their balloon intact wins.

For a variation you can also hand out prizes for the person who breaks the least (or most!) balloons before the end of the game. Be prepared for lots of water on the floor and this game is best played outdoors!

Diaper Changing Relay Race

You will need one baby doll and one diaper for each team, and a table for “changing the baby.”

Break your guests into teams of at least 3 or 4. Bigger parties can have more teams to make the game go faster, smaller parties may need to have less teams.

When the relay race begins, each team will stand on one end of the room. The first person on the team takes the baby doll and runs as fast as they can to the “changing table” on the other side of the room. When they get to the table they must change the baby using the diaper provided. You should have either a cloth diaper and 2 diaper pins, or to make the game easier, a disposable diaper with the reusable straps. To make it a bit more funny you can also add a bottle of baby powder to the game and require each baby’s bottom to be powdered before diapering. Be warned, the chance for a big white mess increases dramatically with this option.

Once they get the baby diapered they must run back to the starting area and pass the baby off to the next teammate. The “baby” must be diapered properly. If the diaper falls off as the player is running back they must go back and re-diaper. The next player on their team takes the baby, runs to the changing table, removes the diaper, and then diapers the baby again the same way. You keep going until all player on one team have finished successfully.

Which ever team finishes first are the winners!

You will be surprised how many people can not diaper a baby with a cloth diaper, and I promise you, one player will, in a frantic rush, diaper the baby’s head (or start to before blushing and stopping herself hoping no one saw her!) If you use disposable make sure to give the left overs to the mommy-to-be, she’ll be needed tons soon, and if you use cloth diapers in the game make sure she takes those, too, since they make great for burp cloths… and we all know she will be needing TONS of those as well.

Dress The Baby

This game can be played individually or in teams of 2 or 3 players. Get a toy baby or baby doll for each guest or team of players. Give each group one baby doll, a set of clothes for the baby, a cloth diaper with diaper pins, a bib. The set of clothes should be a complicated piece of baby clothing like a full button down romper and little baby socks. Now each group must dress the baby as fast as possible. However, each guest is only allowed to use one hand.

If your guests are playing the game single it can become very tricky. In groups too you’ll be surprised at how much co-ordination a simple task as this can require! This game is great fun and really gets your guests working together and interacting.

Name That Tune

Get a cd (or setup your ipod with them) of baby nursery rhymes, lullubys and popular songs that has only the music or tunes on it, no lyrics. Set up your music player so that all your guests can hear the tunes.

Give each player a sheet of paper and a pen. Play each song for a short period of time and ask the guests to guess which nursery rhyme or song it is and have them write it down on their sheet of paper. The guest who gets the most correct answers wins.

You can also play it as a “shout it out” type game and let your guests just call out the names until someone is correct, then give an extra point if they can “sing a few lines”. Just make sure you have someone keep track of the score.

My Water Broke! Ballon Toss

Buy some medium sized balloons and fill them with water. Pair up all your guests into teams. Give each team a water balloon ‘baby’ and tell them they have to pass the baby to each other. Make them stand 8-10 feet apart and have them toss the baby at each other. Of course if the baby falls they have to shout, “My water broke” and they are out of the game.

The pair tossing the baby longest wins. Be prepared to have lots of water on the floor. This game is best played outdoors or some place that doesn’t mind a mess.

The Speedy Diaper Game

Get a toy baby doll, some diapers, a stopwatch, and a blindfold. Once all your guests have arrived tell them that the baby needs his midnight diaper change but the lights are out. So you are going to have to diaper the baby in the dark! Let each guest have a go at diapering the baby blindfolded.

The trick is to hand the guest the diaper upside down or inside out so they spend precious time figuring out which side is the right side up. Some of them might not even bother to do that and put on the diaper all wrong! The guests who does it correctly in the fastest time wins. It is great fun to see each guest fumbling in the dark with the baby and the diaper, and a nice photo op, too!

“Poop It!” Game

This one is really yucky but the expressions on your guests’ faces are going to be worth the trouble. Get as many diapers as you have guests. Stain each diaper with a yucky smelling food or any kind of goop that doesn’t smell so great BEFORE you hand them out to your guests. You can even pick the prank poop you get in stores.

Give each guest a diaper, don’t let on it’s already filled with yucky “poop”. Place a bowl of “poop” (left over baby food or pudding) in the center of a table and tell your guests that have to place as much poop in the diaper as they think a baby would do. Get ready with your camera; this is the prank part. When guests undo the diaper to ‘place’ the poop in their “clean” diaper they will already discover something terrible & smelly there and they are going to react as though it’s real baby poop! The guests without a baby are the one’s to really watch out for.

Bottles Up! Drinking Game

Get one baby bottle for each guest. Fill each bottle with a drink of your choice and give one to each guest. When you say “GO!” the guests begin their “feeding time.” The first player to drink the contents of their bottle is the winner.

For a funny variation, seal the nipple on one of the bottles before giving it to the guest. No matter how hard that player tries, nothing will come out of their bottle. You will be surprised how long people will continue to try even when nothing comes out! For all of their effort make sure that player gets a prize, too!

Puffy Paints Keepsake

This activity is loads of fun and can get messy too! Buy lots of plain white baby tees, onesie outfits, rompers, or bibs. Any baby clothing in plain white will do. Get them in small and larger sizes so they can be worn for the first year is a great idea, as well. It is best to get lots of onesies since those are the most used piece of clothing by newborns.

Get different colored puffy paints for the guests and cover a table or floor area with a cloth or sheet so your guests can use the paints without getting things dirty. Ask the guests to get creative and paint tees and onesie outfits for the baby to wear. They can draw or write special sayings or just sign the outfit with love…. let them use their imaginations, or set a theme and have each person use that.

At the end of the baby shower present the mother to be with all the hand painted clothes. This makes a great baby shower activity and is practical too!
