Free Baby Shower Games & Ideas
A great way to get your baby shower guests involved is with guessing games. Guessing games are a fun and less-competitive alternative for those shy and timid guests. Give all of your guests, both reserved and outgoing, a chance at participating to win prizes.
||Guess The Date - Set up a calendar grid of the month when the baby is due. Have the guests write their name on the date when they think the baby will be born. For a tie breaker, you can have the guests also write the time and weight of the baby. The host or hostess can be responsible for sending a prize to the winner after the baby arrives.
Wet Diaper Game - Break up into groups of 3-4. Each group gets a disposable newborn diaper, large pitcher of water, and a measuring cup. Each group predicts how much water they think the diaper will hold without the water leaking out. Write down the guess before you start. The group that comes closest to their guess wins a prize.

Give her a large purse or bag with about 20 things inside; some should be odd or funny as well as a few regular purse things. Just as you have everyone seated, announce that you are going to get started. Just as everyone starts to get quiet, your "unexpected guest" should enter and look confused. Have her come up to you or the host and ask if this is Sue's Wedding Shower. Tell her no and ask where she is supposed to be. Have her search her purse for an invitation to "Sue's Wedding Shower". When doing this, have her empty all of the contents on the head table waving a few around, clumsily and loudly. Have her act embarrassed and apologetic. She will then pull out an invitation with the address a few numbers off of where you are. Give her directions and have her clean up and leave. Everyone will be talking and laughing. Give them a few minutes to gather themselves then bring the guest back. Introduce your friend and "unexpected guest" then have the guests write down as many things as they can that were in the purse.

The Cucumber Game -This game is similar to musical chairs. Get a large cucumber and have your guests stand in a circle. With someone running the music, the first person must put the cucumber between their legs and pass it on to the next person. Keep passing until the music stops. Whoever has the cucumber when the music stops is out of the game. To make it more difficult, have anyone who drops the cucumber disqualified too. The last person with the cucumber wins the game.
