  2. Baby Items in Bags – Baby Shower Party Games

    Keep the guests guessing with this practical game. Put at least ten common, useful baby items inside a diaper bag; a bib, teething ring, rattle, bottle and diaper are just a few goodies that are also fairly inexpensive. Give each guest a pen and paper before passing the diaper bag around. Without looking, each person should stick a hand inside the bag and identify as many items as possible. Give each two minutes to feel around and make their guesses before moving the bag to the next person. Once everyone has had a turn, find out who had the most correct answers. The winner gets a prize and the parents-to-be get the diaper bag filled with baby essentials!baby shower party planning for games

  3. Pehchan Kaun? – Baby Shower Party Games

Here’s a fun addition to the baby shower, guess who’s the baby. Ask all your guest or at least all your closest friends and family members to provide you with pictures from when they were little. To make things interesting you can give a prize to the person who guesses most of the baby’s identities correctly.
