1.“My favorite baby shower game is the poopy diaper game. There are about 10 diapers each with different kinds of melted chocolates. Pass it around, smell it, and write down what it smells like (like Kit Kat, Snickers, and so on).” — Leis

2.“My fave is guessing how much string or toilet paper it’ll take to go around mommy’s belly.” — thelittlejewel

3.“I love the sock-matching game. The hostess of my shower and some other friends bought 60 pairs of baby socks in various sizes and designs, then mixed them up. Teams of two were each given a basket of baby socks and had to match as many as they could in 60 seconds.” — Rubygirl

4.“My favorite baby shower game is baby scrambler. Choose around 25 baby-related items and scramble the spelling. The winner is the one who can unscramble the most in five minutes.” —Honeybug

5.“The baby race obstacle course is the best! Divide guests into two teams. Set up two lightweight strollers and tables of baby dolls, diapers, baby wipes, clothes, etc. Obstacles include changing the baby doll’s dirty diaper, dressing the baby, and strapping them into the stroller for a race around a course.” — _miamicubajam

_ 6.“For my shower, the hostess got baby pictures from all those that were going to attend.  She scanned them and put everyone’s picture on 1 page with a space to write below.  Each guest had to guess who each baby picture belonged to.” — DiMattoni

7.“I loved The Baby Scrambler. Choose 10-15 baby related items and scramble the spelling.For instance, binky= kniyb” — baldwinsbride

8.“The Price is Right — Throw 10 common baby items in a basket (lotion, shampoo, creams, wipes, etc). In the basket, put a sheet of paper that lists each item. Under the items you have to guess the price without going over.” — emily0829

9.“Everyone gets a clothes pin when they come in, and the rule is if you see anyone crossing their legs or arms you can take their clothes pin. The person who as the most clothes pins at the end of the shower wins!”— Missal5

10.“The bottle chugging contest. The hostess buys a set of small baby bottles and fils them with juice. Contestants have to chug the bottle through the nipple — first one to finish wins! It’s hilarious to watch!” — caileyhc
