10. Don’t Say Baby

This game is one of the most common games played in baby showers I’ve attended. It’s always a great ice breaker.

As the guests arrive, give each a diaper pin or a clothes pin. Once everyone has arrived instruct them not to say the word “baby”.

Or pick another word such as the baby’s name or the mom’s name.

If anyone hears someone else to say the forbidden word she can take the pin from her.

At the end of the game, the person with the most pins wins.

11. Draw The Baby

This game always brings smiles on everyone’s face. Even those who are not artistic will find this game entertaining.

Give everyone a paper plate and a pen. Ask them to hold the plate on their heads while drawing.

You could simply ask them to draw a baby or make it more complicated and describe the nursery one item at a time they need to draw:

  • a crib
  • a rocking chair next to the crib
  • a dresser
  • a teddy bear in the crib
  • a pillow on the rocking chair etc.
