Fun, Easy Baby Shower Games for Everyone — Yes, Even Dad
Games have always been a highlight of the baby shower — a great way for guests to mingle and meet each other in activities that encourage informality and relaxation. When you offer plenty of baby shower games and activities at the party, there's never a dull moment — mom, dad, and all the well-wishers can enjoy a good laugh over the mixed trials and blessings of maternity and parenthood. Try a cleaned up version of the dirty diaper baby shower game for instant laughs. Whoever finds the diaper with the "special surprise" is the lucky winner; if the winner is a reluctant male player, then so much the better! For "measurable" fun, the tummy measure baby shower game is a classic — guests trim their paper tape measures to guess the waist size of the mom-to-be, and the guest whose cropped tape measure fits most closely wins. (Special note to Dad: it's much safer to underestimate than to guess on the high side.) Baby Bingo is always a perennial favorite among baby shower games: played just like the Bingo game you know from way back when, cards and markers are baby shower themed in pink for the baby girl of blue for the baby boy. Games of chance keep them guessing and make sure everyone stays involved in the goings-on. Scratch and win baby shower games are like lottery quick picks, creating a moment of excitement (you decide what the prizes will be), while spin the bottle baby shower game nudges players into the most ridiculous "dares' when the bottle spinner lands on their quadrant. If you're short on planning time, or you just want be sure you've covered all the bases, a games kit is maybe the best way to go; games can include word searches, charades, Bingo, pin the pacifier on the Baby, and more. Guests will be impressed with your baby shower game know how — they'll think you planned all activities yourself!
