Baby shower games can make or break your party. Whether you love them or hate them, a baby shower game is essential to break the ice and keep guests entertained. Check out these fifteen refreshingly different baby shower game ideas and have fun planning your next baby shower!
BEST BABY SHOWER GAMES FOR EVERYONE
The key to a successful baby shower game is to know your crowd. You’ve got cute baby shower cupcakes and the diaper cake has been made, now how do you keep the party upbeat and engaging? Choose baby shower games that induce (pun intended!) laughter and keep the crowd on their feet.
What if your guests don’t really know each other and you want to avoid awkward silences? Use icebreaker baby shower games so your guests get to know one another. Or, perhaps your group is more interested in baby shower craft activities over the traditional baby shower game. Whether you are hosting a baby shower for women, men or couples, these refreshing baby shower games will make your next baby shower a hit!
15 REFRESHING BABY SHOWER GAMES
1. TINKLE IN THE POTTY
This baby shower game looks hilarious! Guests first put an inflated balloon under their shirt and then put a ping pong ball between their knees. The idea is to waddle to a pot or jar and drop the ping pong ball into it. If you have ever been pregnant and had to use the restroom in the middle of the night, you get the idea behind this game!
