Baby Shower Games
Making your Baby shower more fun will make the event even more memorable. Including silly and entertaining baby shower games will make the party more exciting for everyone. These games can really be fun and may even teach you something about the guests or the mother to be. Below are some of our favorite baby shower games:
How Big Is The Baby?
This baby shower game can be a lot of fun as long as the mother to be is up to it. The object of the game is to guess the size of the baby. The only supplies you need for this game are a few balls of yarn and a couple pairs of scissors. Have each guest cut a length of string that they think will fit around the future mom's belly. After everyone has cut their string you can either wrap each string around her belly or have her measure and cut a piece of string that fits her belly. Compare her string to all the guests' pieces of string. The person with the closest measurement wins. It's amazing to see what people's guesses are in comparison to the actual width.
What's For Dinner?
To play this baby shower game you will first need to purchase several jars of baby food. Remove the labels from each jar and place a numbered sticker on each jar. Make sure that you keep a legend so you know which is which when the game is over. During the baby shower pass the jars around and have everyone try to guess what is in each jar. The winner is determined by who identifies the most number of jars correctly.
The Price is Right
This is a great game to play at a baby shower, and in the end makes for a wonderful gift for the expectant mother.

Have each guest try to guess the cost of each item in the bag. The person who gets closest to the actual price of the most items wins. After the game is over you can present the filled bag to mom as a baby shower gift.
Ask each of the guests who are attending the baby shower to bring a picture of their self when they were a baby. Arrange the pictures on a table or assemble them on poster board and assign each picture a number. Give each guest a name tag, an piece of paper for their answers and a pen. Have each guest match the other guests to each of the baby pictures. The person with the most correct answers wins.
