It’s time to bring out your ridiculous side with these silly party games. Prepare to laugh, cringe, and get competitive with these fun baby shower games.

Diaper Relay Race

This diaper relay game is a great way to get guests moving and have some fun. Divide guests into two teams and line them up at one end of the room or yard. At the other end of the room, place a pile of diapers. The first person in each line will run to the pile of diapers, put on a diaper, and then return to their team. The following person in line will then do the same, and so on. The first team to have its members put on a diaper and run back to their team wins. This is one of our favorite quick and easy party games because it is so silly that it is sure to have the whole crowd laughing.

How Big is Mama’s Belly?

Let each guest cut a piece of yarn they believe will fit perfectly around the mom-to-be’s growing belly, and see who has the closest measurement! Avoid awkward measuring attempts by first measuring a piece of yarn around the mom-to-be before the event and using that to measure against the guest’s guesses.

Guess the Baby Food

This game is a great way to test guests' taste buds. Create, print, or purchase cards for your guests to fill out. Collect a variety of jarred baby food, squeeze packs, yogurts, and then blindfold guests. Give them a spoon of different baby food recipes to taste, and guess what flavor of baby food it is. The guest with the most correct guesses wins.

Gender Reveal Games

Is your mom-to-be planning to reveal the baby’s gender at the baby shower?
