Baby showers are a time to welcome a new little one into the world. It is a chance for friends and family to shower the expectant parents with gifts to prepare them for their new bundle of joy. The typical baby shower consists of refreshments, mounds of presents, and an exciting gender reveal extravaganza. Most celebrations also have a plethora of fun, whimsical baby shower games to entertain party guests. There are the classics such as baby food taste testing and racing to finish the baby bottle, but here’s a list of some new games for party hosts looking to spice things up a bit.
In this game, guests can create their own baby using Play-Doh or clay. Each guest receives a handful of different colored pieces of Play-Doh. Their goal is to create the cutest baby. This game encourages them to let their imagination roam free. Guests also receive a cupcake or muffin liner place their creations into once they are done. It may be helpful to provide modeling tools such as toothpicks, plastic knives, and pens. After all the guests add the finishing touches to their creation, the parents pick out their favorite baby out of the bunch.
Instead of brand new cars and dream vacations, guests guess the price of a variety of baby products. These products can be anything from baby toys, gadgets, diapers, or toiletries. Each item is auctioned off one by one. After each round, the person who has the closest guess chooses between keeping the item or testing their luck with a mystery prize.
This game involves two or more players. Each participant gets a pile of baby clothes consisting of tops, bottoms, socks, and shoes. The participants put on blindfolds over their heads and spin around a few times. A timer is set for 45 seconds. The participants race to put together as many complete outfits as they can. The game host or host parents announce the winner after they have a count of completed outfits for each participant.
The materials needed for this game are tiny plastic babies, an ice cube tray, and drinks. Game set up happens before the party. Plastic babies are frozen into ice cubes using an ice cube tray and water. Once frozen, an ice cube baby is placed into everybody’s drink. The first person to have their baby completely emerge from the ice cube shouts “It’s a Boy/Girl!” and wins the game.
