5 FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES
We love a good baby shower, and with lockdown (hopefully) committed to memory, it looks like these fun frolics are back on the agenda. Of course, it’s been a while, so getting back into the swing of things is going to take a bit of imagination. To give you a nudge in the right direction here are our 5 top baby shower games to play!
1) FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES: NAPPY RAFFLE
Ask the baby shower guests to bring a pack of nappies (any size). If they do, they can enter a raffle for a chance to win a prize. Guests get one nappy raffle ticket for every pack of nappies they contribute. It’s a fun way for mama-to-be to stock up on essentials and guests get the chance to bag a reward. It’s a win-win!
2) FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES: GUESS THE BUMP SIZE
This baby shower activity is all about the main attraction: Bump! Guests have to guess how big the mum’s bump is and then the moment of truth is revealed when mama-to-be is measured up. There’s usually a prize in it for the winner, so this one gets quite competitive.
3) FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES: BABY FOOD TASTE TEST
Let’s face it, everyone loves a smashed avocado, so this one is a definite winner. The rules are pretty simple. The person who guesses the most flavours correctly gets a prize… a few pots of banana puree to take home, perhaps? Yum!
4) FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES: CELEBRITY BABIES
This one takes a bit of pre-prep but it’s worth it for the giggle factor. The easiest way to do this one is to collect a selection of pictures of celebrities as babies. Pop them on a board and number each one. Guests then have to fill out a form matching numbers with names. It might sound easy-peasy, lemon-squeazy, but you’d be surprised how hard it is to match A-Listers with their toddler selves.
5) FUN BABY SHOWER GAMES: BABY ADVICE
This is our absolute personal favourite of ours because it involves mama’s buddies digging deep and giving her the most valuable thing of all – their ultimate piece of parental advice. The idea is to give her the golden nugget you wish you’d known before becoming a parent. It takes a bit of head scratching, but it’s worth it.
