Baby Shower Party Games: Ten Fun, Free Games Your Guests Will Love


 Baby showers are events that the new mother will remember forever. 
 
 Make it extra special - and break the ice - with these fun and easy baby shower party games. 
 
 Each of these ideas are free (or very low in cost) for the hostess, and easy for the guests to participate in.
 
 Here are ten baby shower games for you to enjoy. 
 
 1.  Down in One! Pass around a baby bottle filled with milk and see who can drink it most quickly, sucking on the bottle as a baby does. You may be surprised how difficult it can be.
 
 2. Pass the Parcel. This is an old classic and can be easily adapted to make a very popular baby shower party game. 
 
 First, wrap a simple gift in ten layers of tissue paper, then (if you wish) in a layer of gift wrap. Baby shower guests sit in a circle and pass the parcel while lullaby music plays. Whoever is holding th parcel when the music stops gets to remove one layer of wrap. As she does so, she offers a special bit of wisdom for the new mom (or tells a story about a silly thing she did as a baby or as a new mom.) 
 
 Guests continue to pass the parcel until all layers have been removed. 
 
 The person who removes the final layer is the winner (and gets to keep the gift.) 
 
 3. Guess Who? On the baby shower invitation, ask each guest to bring a picture of herself as a baby. Then see if everyone can tell who is who.
 
 4. Baby Bingo. Use lots of baby related words and see who can complete their score card first.  
 
 5. A Letter for Baby. Choose a letter randomly by stabbing at a book with a pencil. Everybody has to write down a boy's name, a girl's name, a baby item and a nursery song beginning with that letter. Points go to those who come up with unique ideas.
 
 6. What do You Call It? Everybody sits in a circle. Start by naming an ordinary baby item. Each person in turn has to think of a different name, which might be used to refer to that item. The first person to be stumped is out of the game, and the next person has to name a new item.
 
 7. Dining with Baby. Put samples of different baby foods on a plate and see if your guests can guess what each one is supposed to taste like.
 
 8. Blindfolded Drawing. Blindfold each guest and give her a crayon and a sheet of paper, then ask them to draw a baby. 
 
 9. Collecting for Baby. You can use a piggy bank for this baby shower game or you can use a cardboard box with a slit cut in the top. Each guest has to deposit some money or a piece of helpful advice for your child to use as he or she grows up.
 
 10. It's All Too Much! Everyone gets that feeling sooner or later, and in this most sympathetic of baby shower games each guest gets to experience something of what the mother is going through as they are asked to hold as many baby items as possible. Keep piling them up until one drops and see who can manage the most!
 
 Games can get things going and help create a truly special day for the proud new mother.
