Baby showers are meant to be fun celebrations of soon-to-be new members of the family! And since everyone wants to have fun and there will likely be guests meeting for the first time, it’s a great idea to have some laugh-worthy games ready to go to help encourage a good time and break the ice. Below, we’ve rounded up the best games out there for almost any baby shower.

Purchasing a Baby Shower Game

It’s important to make sure baby shower games are right for the occasion, so take these few points into consideration:

  • Humor: If the mother-to-be has a good sense of humor (and the rest of the party does as well), then opt for a few games that offer extra humor for some extra laughs.
  • Gender Reveal: If the new parents want a chance to reveal their baby’s gender at the party, there are plenty of games for that, too!
  • Inclusive: There may be guests of a range of ages, from teenage cousins to grandmas and everyone in between, so make sure the games can be fun for just about anyone.
  • What’s Included: While purchasing pens or a few other items is not that big of a deal, make sure a majority (or all) of what will be needed to play the game is included in the purchase.
