I’m always looking for fun baby shower games ideas! I really love to play fun games at baby showers. I like to tap into my competitive spirit and try my hand at winning awesome prizes!
But now that I’m older years old I have been to soooo many baby showers and played more than my fair share of baby shower games and some of them have been just awful.
I don’t want to sit down and not be able to cross my legs or look at faux baby poop and guess what kind of chocolate it is.
And I’ve played the game where you can’t say the word baby more times than I can count.
Baby. Baby. Baby. Baby.
So I decided to come up with this list of 30 awesome baby shower games that don’t suck! If you’re planning a baby shower, these are games your guests will love to play, no matter how many baby showers they’ve attended in their life.
From free printable games, interactive games that will have guests moving around the room, funny baby shower games, and even virtual baby shower games, these games for a baby shower will have everyone laughing and are some of the best baby shower games I’ve seen!
How Many Games Should be Played at A Baby Shower?
Depending on how long you want your baby shower to go, usually between two and three games is enough to get your guests mingling and keep them entertained, while still allowing for enough time to socialize with one another and the expecting mama.
I find three is the perfect number of games to play, as long as there is enough variety between the games.
