My favorite at my shower was the dirty diaper game... we had the men included and got some great video's and pics of the guys getting a good wiff of the "poop" and some of them tasting it... we knew it was chocolate but made for some gross pics lol. Another one I liked was you write down every ones birthday, month and day and whoevers is closest to the baby's wins... of course this only works if the baby is already born. The friend that hosted mine found tons of games online.

My mom bought little baby things and then everyone tries to guess how much they were and see who's total came out the closest....a true test to the mother to be when she plays!

Everyone in my family has been having babies, so I've been at a lot of showers lately! Love the "name that poop" game! You can also pass around jars of baby food, with the labels removed or covered up, and have people guess what they are, either just by sight, if you don't want to open them up, or by smelling/tasting.

-fill a few baby bottles with juice (or my sister was at one where they used beer!) and have a bottle drinking contest. YOu'd be surprised at how much work it is!

- Who can do up a cloth diaper fastest, wearing oven mitts. (I won this one!)

-If the mom has already had the baby, or there is another new mom there, guess what's in her diaper bag. Whoever gets the most items, wins.

-have everyone write 12 things they think the mom will get as gifts. When she opens the gifts, whoever gets the most right wins.

-Give everyone a piece of paper. Everyone writes down a question regarding baby care (or labor, delivery, whatever.) Then you fold your paper in half and pass it to the right. The person who gets your paper writes either the answer to their own question, or just a random piece of advice, without looking at the question. Then you read all the questions and answers. This one can get really funny!

That's all I can think of for now! Have fun!

I always had fun with some clothes pin game. You give everyone a clothes pin and tell them that if they hear anyone say the words "baby, boy/girl, " really anything you want and if they say it you take their clothes pin. Whoever gets the most wins a prize

we played baby bingo and mothers and babies.. where you write down famous mothers and you have to guess the baby names.. I also gave out a little thank you bag made of a nappy filled with cute things like lolly dummy and some choccy's shaped as elaphants.. (daugher called India) which was great..

LOVE THE DIRTY DIAPER GAME!!!! We played it at my baby shower and it was so funny to watch people taste it and smell it to try and guess!!! You can also do word jumbles of baby words....stuff and such. You could use your baby's name and have people find as many words as they can with the letters in the name...you could use first only or all three names. Also it is great to fill a basket with baby stuff and pass it around...you let people look at it for a short time, when everyone had a chance to look you have them write down what they can remember from the basket w/o looking. The best thing is the mama gets to keep the goodies!!! Oh and trying to guess how big the mama is is fun too....you can use yarn or tp. People look at her then she leaves and everyone takes as much as they think could fit around her. I love shower games!!!!! Good luck and have fun!!!!
