Free Baby Shower Game Ideas
Here is a selection of free baby shower games we love! We've selected the least complicated ones that don't involve an art degree to set up! Baby shower games are an intrinsic part of baby showers. At most baby showers, not all guests know each other, so fun baby shower games are a terrific way to break the ice and get everyone having a good time. The best idea is to choose only 2 or 3 games, as you want to allow unstructured time for your guests to talk freely with each other.

Don't say 'Baby'!
This game is a great ice breaker and so is a great one to start with, another benefit of this game is that it runs through-out the shower.
To play this free baby shower game you will need at least two pegs per guest. As each person arrives you should welcome them and give them two pegs, and tell them that they need to peg them anywhere on their clothes.
The aim of the game is to be the person with the MOST pegs. You can take a peg off someone if they say a particular word. In most cases, the word "baby" is a great taboo word - it's virtually impossible not to say "baby" at a baby shower! If someone says the word baby, one peg only can be taken off that person. The person who takes the peg then pegs it to their own clothes. Whoever is the quickest to grab the peg gets to keep it.
It can be quite a hilarious game to play. People will be wary at first, but after a while they will forget! Towards the end of the baby shower, the winner should be announced- just see who has the most clothes pegs on their clothes.
What's in the Jar?
Before the shower: Purchase 6 jars of baby food; applesauce, bananas, peaches, pears, green beans, and peas, and 4 jars of juice; apple, orange, pear, and prune. Using tape, or stickers, write numbers 1 through 10 and attach on lids of the jars. Tear off all labels and write numbers 1 through 10 on the inside of the appropriate labels. Put aside in envelope.
Play the game: Pass all the jars around to each guest, having them guess what's inside by the colour and texture. Take labels out of envelope and read off what is in each numbered jar. The guest with the most correct answers wins.
After the shower: Tape all the appropriate labels back on the jars and give to the new mum to use.
Guess Mum's Girth!
For this baby shower game all you need is a toilet roll! It's quite a simple game where people have to estimate the circumference of the expectant Mum's belly by taking a long piece of toilet roll paper.
After each person has taken their length of piece from the roll, get each one to get up and put the toilet paper around the Mother-to-Be, and see who is the closest! You'll probably get more than one winner, but guaranteed to have a great laugh at some of the estimations!
Baby Shower Memory Game
This baby shower game idea will test your guests grey power! It's the old fashioned memory game, with a baby shower twist.
You will need large tray - like a serving tray, or else a baking tray. Find items that are related to looking after a baby, and place them on the tray, then cover with a tea towel.
To play the baby shower game, each person needs a piece of paper and a pen. Bring out the tray, and explain to the group that they have 1 minute to look at the items underneath, and then the tray will be taken away. They will then have to write down as many items as they can remember. The winner is the person who has remembered the most.
Some ideas of what to put on the tray:
- Cotton wool ball
- Face washer
- Baby sock
- Cotton bud
- Talcum powder
- Breast pad
- Baby scissors/ clippers
- Thermometer /digital thermometer
- Baby rattle / toy
Guess How Many
For this baby shower games idea, guests need to guess how many objects are in a glass jar. Have the jar positioned prominently with the food or drinks.
You could use jelly babies, sweets shaped as dummies, cotton buds, safety pins etc.
The winner is the person who has the closest number, but who doesn't go over the actual figure.
Who is that Baby?
This game requires a bit of preparation beforehand, but it can be really fun to play.
The host needs to ask each guest to bring along a photo of themselves as a baby. Once you have them, stick them very carefully (careful because they could be really old, and very precious!) on a piece of cardboard, give each one a letter or number, and then stick the cardboard on a wall.
Alternatively, you could mount each photo on an individual piece of cardboard and put them on walls throughout the house.
When it's time to play the baby shower games, the guests have to walk to the photos, and with a piece of paper and pen, write down who they think is which baby! Trick your guests buy including a photo of the dad-to-be for a bit of extra fun!
