The Price Is Right - (Materials: Printed pictures of baby shower gift items, pens, index cards) - Break all baby shower guests into teams and show them baby shower gift items without a price. Have each team write down their answer for each product on index cards, giving them four possible prices for each item. The team with the most answered right wins. Thanks to Norma C. for this great baby shower game!
Baby Shower Winner Takes "All" - (Materials: All Detergent, Money in change and paper, Large Jar) - Fill a glass jar with money before guests arrive (change and dollar bills). When the baby shower guests arrive, pass the jar around for the guests add more money in the jar. Later, have guests guess how much money is in the jar. The person who guesses closest to the dollar amount wins ALL! (a gift bag containing 'ALL' detergent, that is). Take a picture of the winner's face when they learn they are not getting money, but laundry detergent. The mommy-to-be ends up with the jar of money! Thanks to Sokia of Backersfield, CA for this awesome baby shower gag and game!
Guess Mom's Tummy Size: (Materials- String or yarn and scissors) Have each woman pull the yarn to the size they believe would fit perfectly around the Mother-To-Be's center of her pregnant tummy. After everyone cuts their string, compare the results to the Mommy-To-Be's actual tummy. Give a prize to the woman who is the most close! This is a baby shower favorite!
Never say "Baby": (Materials- baby safety pins or another type of baby object you can place on a string for each woman at the party as well as string or yarn, enough for each woman to wear as a necklace). Have each woman place the necklace with the baby safety pins around her neck when she gets to the party. The rules for this baby shower game are given out at the beginning of the baby shower that whenever someone says the word "baby" during the shower, any woman who calls it out gets a pin from the other woman who stated the word. At the end of the baby shower, the woman with the most pins wins a prize.
Baby Song List: (Materials - pad of paper and pen for each woman). Have each woman write down in 5 minutes all the songs that have baby in their titles (i.e., baby love, santa baby, one for my baby). You can make it harder by stating that you have to name who also wrote the songs! A baby shower favorite
