Baby shower games are a great way to break the ice and get your guests laughing and enjoying themselves!

Here are 6 baby shower games that are creative as well as fun. You will need to do a bit of preparation beforehand for these games, this is a list of the items you’ll require:

  • Pack of Little One’s disposable nappies
  • Paper and pens
  • Coloured marker pens
  • Kitchen gloves, knife and fork
  • Family-sized bar of chocolate
  • Collection of small baby items
  • Play dough

1. “Baby” Songs

Give everyone five minutes to list as many songs with the word ‘baby’ or ‘babe’ in the title. Guests can work on their own or in teams of two or three people. The person or team with the longest list wins a prize. An alternative is to create a playlist of songs with the ‘baby’ or ‘babe’ in the title and play 30 seconds of each song and have people guess the artist and title.

2. Pass the Nappy

Have the guests sit in a circle. Wrap the bar of chocolate (slightly melted) in a nappy and place in the middle with kitchen gloves, a knife and fork. Pass the parcel around the group to some random music. When it stops the person holding the nappy has 30 seconds to don the gloves, undo the nappy and eat the chocolate with the knife and fork. It continues until there is no chocolate left and the loser is the one left holding a dirty nappy when the music stops.

3. Parenting Advice

Before the shower have some pens and paper slips ready for each guest. Ask them to write down a short parenting saying or advice that they were given from their mum or dad. Collect the slips in a bowl and mix them up. The mum-to-be reads each slip of paper and everyone tries to guess who wrote each saying.

4. What’s in the Nappy?

Before the shower take a few baby items and wrap them in a nappy. This could be a bottle, socks, thermometer, rubber duck etc. Tape them up and write a number on each nappy corresponding to your master list. Line them up on a table. Guests get to feel the nappy bundles and try and guess what’s inside. The person who guesses the most number of objects wins a prize.

5. Play Dough Babies

Who doesn’t like to get creative with play dough? All you need are a few different coloured canisters of play dough and cupcake patty liners. On ‘go!’ guests get to mould their lump of play dough into the shape of a baby. Make it harder by setting a time limit, say 3 minutes. Give prizes for the funniest, ugliest, most realistic baby, or all three! Let mum-to-be judge the finished babies.

6. Nappy Notes

This is a sweet way to wrap up your baby shower games. Give each guest a nappy and a marker pen and have them write a funny joke, quote or words of encouragement on the back of the nappy. Collect them up in a nappy bag and give them to the mum-to-be to provide inspiration for those late-night nappy changes!

  • I never had a baby shower and Ive never been to one either.


  • I love playing baby bingo
    Or my fav is make a diaper.
    Watching all the adults in a crepe paper diaper is rather funny


  • My all time favourite game was matching the celebrities to their baby names!


  • I love baby showers


  • At my baby shower they had a comp to drink from a baby bottle. That was funny- not as easy as it looks!


  • nappy races to put on a cloth nappy with a safety pin and a teddy is fun and gets 2 people competing against each other.
    A memory game with all baby items on a tray. people get to look at them, then they are hidden away and contestants have to remember them and write them down.


  • some great ideas for a baby shower and lots of fun too


  • I’ve only been to one baby shower, for my grandson to be. I’ll only go if my kids have more kids, I won’t and haven’t, been to any others. Games are ok


  • For my first baby shower I had pin the sperm on the egg and a few other games.
    For my baby sprinkle (baby 2) I had a nursery rhyme theme, everything was related to a different nursery rhyme and everyone had to guess what each rhyme was based on the food or decoration.
    I’ve played bling folded nappy change of a doll (got it done in under 30 seconds!) Your in teams and it’s sort of a relay type thing.
    Heaps of fun games out there!


  • These are some great ideas. Give everyone a good laugh if they end up with the dirty nappy.


  • The chocolate in the nappy game is always such a funny game watching people’s reaction! I love baby showers I don’t know anyone who’s having a baby anytime soon though that I would be invited to their shower!


  • Haven’t been to a baby shower in a while but some good ideas thanks for sharing


  • Some nice ideas.
    I’ve not been to a baby shower.


  • A great post to keep in mind, I’m sure another baby shower will be happening soon xx


  • Baby shower games are always so controversial thanks for the ideas


  • Cute ideas,y sister had fabric paint and plain baby clothes for people to paint on at mine.


  • I’ve only been to one baby shower and that was for my grandson. My daughter in law had some excellent games. Sadly, it didn’t encourage the guests to mingle. There were defined groups, girls she worked with were one group. Her family was another group. My sons family another group, which was just myself and my daughter. And another ‘group’ of school friends which was one lonely girl. She gravitated to myself and daughter, which was nice because she’s a lovely girl.


  • Buy a supply of baby bottles early, Put water in them and give each person to suck and drink the water. It was much harder than I thought it would be. They were plastic bottles. I was squeezing the bottle to push the water up but it didn’t help much. The bottles were only 1/2 full but I’m not sure any of us drank it all before we gave up.
