Couples Baby Shower Games

A baby show­er is a beau­ti­ful and excit­ing time for all new par­ents. Whether you are expect­ing the immi­nent arrival of your lit­tle one or he / she is here in the world already, you will want to cel­e­brate big style! Begun in the US, the baby show­er has caught on the world over and is a great way for mom to relax, have fun and to enjoy the arrival of her bun­dle of joy.

Baby show­ers can be what­ev­er you want them to be so long as they are fun! It is usu­al prac­tice for any­one but mom to arrange the par­ty – she has enough to do, yes? Also when decid­ing on the par­ty itself it’s always fun to bring it togeth­er by means of a theme run­ning through it. This can be any­thing you fan­cy and you can pick cou­ple baby show­er games to suit.

Now it is tra­di­tion­al to only have ladies at the baby show­er how­ev­er it is love­ly to mix it up and get our men folk involved. Men how­ev­er can get a lit­tle light head­ed at the tales of labor and such so why not put the main focus on fun and games instead?

Making Baby — Couples Baby Shower Game Idea #1

This game is a great one to set off the pro­ceed­ings and to break the ice. All the girls are giv­en pink mod­el­ing dough, the boys are giv­en blue and each has to make the cutest baby pos­si­ble in a cer­tain amount of time. When the time is up, the “babies” are places on a dis­play table and the expect­ing mom and dad choose two win­ners. This can be hilar­i­ous espe­cial­ly if the guests are a lit­tle chal­lenged in the sculpt­ing depart­ment!

Who am I? — Couples Baby Shower Game Idea #2

This is a vari­a­tion on the par­ty game we all played as chil­dren. Every guest has a sign pinned to their back with a name on it and has to ask oth­er peo­ple ques­tions with yes or no answers in order to deter­mine who they are. For a fun baby show­er theme it can be played with the names of car­toon or nurs­ery rhyme char­ac­ters pinned to guests’ backs!

Embarrassing stories — Couples Baby Shower Game Idea #3

At the begin­ning of the baby show­er invite all guests to com­mit to paper an embar­rass­ing or fun­ny sto­ry about their child­hood and then the cou­ples all have to guess whose tale has been read out as the expec­tant mom and dad take turns to read out each sto­ry. Just remem­ber to keep the sto­ries as taste­ful as pos­si­ble!

Diaper Race — Couples Baby Shower Game Idea #4

The males and females are divid­ed into two teams and blind­fold­ed as they com­pete against each oth­er to put a dia­per on a baby doll as cor­rect­ly as pos­si­ble. The quick­est and best in each round wins a point for their sex’s team!

Mr and Mrs Questions — Couples Baby Shower Game Idea #5

Each cou­ple is asked a series of ques­tions about one anoth­er. For exam­ple, “What is John’s favorite col­or?” and so on. The win­ning cou­ple is the one which knows each oth­er best! This game is lots of fun and is a great ice break­er too!

These are only a few of the games which cou­ples can play at baby show­ers. Why not think up some of your own or bet­ter still, meet up with friends and think up as many fun games as you can. This can be a lot of fun and can also be ther­a­peu­tic too! Hap­py play­ing!
