Couples Baby Shower Games

I'm in charge of "games" for a family, couples baby shower. The mom to be has already had her friends throw her a huge shower, so this one is just for our famly, 4 couples, and our kids, and we are gearing it more towards the dad to be. What kind of games can we have the guys play. Once I had a diaper changing contest, and the plastic baby dolls had pudding and cereal chunks in their diapers, it was hilarious. But none of us have any old plastic baby dolls so may not be able to play that one. Word scramble is too boring. Any ideas? Help! It's this weekend!

The first game I thought of was, as the guest arrive hand them a roll of toilet paper and request the remove as much paper as the would like from the roll. Do not answer questions just have them take as much as they want. After all guest have arrived have the mom to be stand up in the middle of the guest and have each one take their section of paper and wrap it around her middle. The one whos section is closest to the Mom's actual belly size wins.

The second is to dump a bag of rice into a bowl and dump in a container of different size safty pins and blind fold each contestant. Give them 60 seconds to pick out as many saftey pins as possible. It is amazing how much the pins feel like rice even the larger ones.

I went to a couples baby shower and one of the games was to see who could drink a bottle the fastest - the Mom or the Dad. Another game at that shower was for everyone to guess the baby food. All of the jars had the labels removed and had numbers on the tops. Each person got a piece of paper and wrote down the numbers and their guess. I have also played bingo where the items on the card were baby items like rattle, bib, bottle, pacifier, diapers, wipes, etc instead of numbers.

You could play "baby pictionary". Come up with some baby words and have a white board or chalk board to draw them out.

I recall one couples shower where the couples had a blown-up balloon & had to walk from point 1 to point b w/the balloon between the bellies. NO HANDS!!! If the balloon falls they go back to point a & start all over. 1st one to point b wins!!!

The diaper changes don't have to be w/plastic dolls. You can use stuffed animals ( just don't stuff the diaper ). And have them blind folded. The wives can also verbally guide them.

Another one is fill 4oz. baby bottles w/a liquid (alcohol or non), & the 1st couple to suck the bottles dry wins!!!

Good luck & have fun!!!!!!

I like the baby animal game, you get animals and you have to match up what a baby one is called. There are some easy ones like frog and tadpole, but who knew that a baby swan was a cygnet? Ok, I did, but it is a really fun game. Look online for a pre-made copy. The other one that is really funny is famous people and their kids' names. I was terrible at that one, but it is kind of fun...Frank Zappa and his daughter Moon for example. Babyfood tasting is fun. Put a little of each babyfood in a dixie cup or on a tiny Baskin Robins spoon and have the guests taste and guess the kind of food...it is harder than you think, especially the meats! Also the melted candybar diaper game is fun and gross. Take brand name candybars and put them in a diaper. Stick each in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until they melt. You can squish them a bit to show the insides and then guests can smell and look to see if they can identify the candy. Another game I recently played was the name game. You get points for NOT having the same name as the other players. You go through the alphabet and give a name for each letter. You can give unisex names or if the guest knows the baby's sex, boy or girl names. There is also the toilet paper or string game. Guests look at the expectant mother and have to guess her circumference. They pull off toilet paper or cut strings as long as they think is necessary to go around her belly. That is funny with the guys! Another is a baby-bottle drinking contest. Fill the bottles with water or juice and see who can drain it the fastest. Anyway, hope there are some good ideas for you. Good Luck and have fun.

This one is FUNNY have all the dads compete in blind folded diaper changing, but use dolss, and cloth diapers with the pins. The expetant couple gets to keep the cloth diaperts for burp clothes. Can be hilariuos if the moms get in the way and quietly move things around one them. ie.. after they are blind folded turn the doll around...
another one is the clothes pin game but the dads can not say a "dad " word like..tool or bbq or some other word that your dads use A LOT

Blindfolded baby feed - We played this game at my baby shower. What you do is pair up 2 people and blind fold each of them.Have them get down on the floor on all 4's. Give one of them a jar of baby food and a baby spoon. Have that person stick the handle of the spoon in their mouth. Then have them try to feed the other person while they are both blind folded. The group that finish's first wins oh and they have to make it in there mouth!!! This game is really funny and you want to make sure that you take pictures of this!!!

Couple Facts - The second game was also original. I came up with a list of facts about the couple having the baby that people who are close to them should know. In some cases I put a twist on the fact to make if false. Some examples include, the nickname of xxx (father-to-be) is..., the mother-to-be currently drives a Toyota Scion, and the mother-to-be use to compete in gymnastics. At the end of the list of checkboxes, I included two extra credit points (two points each), whereas the check boxes that are selected and should be were worth 1 point each. The two extra point questions were fill in the blank: The mother-to-be most often spends her free time

Diaper Game - Divide into teams of two ( couples)and have one person construct a diaper out of toilet paper on their team mate. After a few minutes have the mother to be decide which diaper is the best or at least most interesting and that team wins a prize.

Multi-tasking Dad ~ This game is especially fun for co-ed parties. Have two people hold up a clothes line. Give the "victim" (male participant) a baby doll to hold, a telephone to talk on, and a basket full of clothes to hang with clothes pins. The timer begins whenever the dad receives a phone call (someone can call him from a cellphone). He must then proceed to have a conversation, hold the baby and hang out the clothes-all at the same time! The man to hang all clothes the quickest wins. This is hilarious and the men get a taste of what a multi-tasking Mom does all day.

hope these get you started.
good luck and have fun.

You could try a white elephant game. Where you have some gifts wrapped and in the middle. Things that are pretty cheep as you can go over board and spend a lot on this game (like, bottle brushes, pacifiers etc). Anyway go around like you are playing white elephant and steel of people etc. And then at the end just dump it all in to a box and give it to the couple you are throwing the shower for.
My parents-in-law did this for us when we bought our house we did a white elephant and it was things like kitchen gadgets and stuff. We were having so much fun we didn't even realise it was all for us till they dumped it all in the box and gave it all to us.

Have fun.

I just recently went to a couples shower and it was so much fun! Now we did something similar to the idea you mentioned, but it was separated into 3 different games.

1. We did have the baby changing contest, except it was more like regular baby dolls, and each couple had to be on their knees and have their inner arms round one another. For ex. the man could only use his left arm/hand (while his right arm was wrapped around his wife's shoulders) and the woman could only use her right arm (while her left one was around her hubby's waist). and together they had to dress a baby (shirt, socks, diaper, pants). It was soooo funny.

2. Next we had the diaper guessing game. It was several different diapers with various chocolates inside (ex. recess peanut butter, crunch, 3 musketeers, and hershey's with almonds). But the chocolate was melted and mixed real good (which makes it look GROSS like TRUE baby bowels). This way each couple has to smell it, look real close at it, touch it, but NO TASTING! SO FUNNY!

3. Last we had different types of baby food jars and past around having every couple decide on what flavor it was. Pick hard ones!

Another fun one is where both partners are blind folded (each couple goes separately so all can enjoy watching) and had to feed a nasty flavor to their spouse. The one able to finish the most within a certain time period (30 sec) wins. Have a video camera ready and make sure to have bibs for the mess!

Another suggestion is a game just for the guys. I recommend starting off or ending up with this one, either to loosen up tension or ending with it since by this time the guys are very competitive. Fill up bottles with Apple Juice and have them see who can drink it the fastest. Just watch out for the cheaters who may open it, or bite the nipple!

Good luck!

Hi!!

I just gave my friends baby shower two weeks ago. We had 4 games.

1- Collect the clothespins for not saying "Baby" from begin of the party till after they open their presents. Whoever has more clothespin are the winner

2. Using toliet papers to guess how big is the mommy to be's tummy. From belly button and around her to belly button.. Do not let them measure around and near her. Let them guess.

3. Guys only- Bottle contests.. Any drinks. The winner is whoevery drink all at first.

4. Couple change diaper timer- Couple have to hug each other in one arms and they can use one of their arms to change diaper on doll. The faster is the winner.

We used all the prizes from a dollor store.. Awesome stuffs for an dollar! Good luck

I heard of one, but have not tried it. You will need diapers and chocolate bars. You need to melt the chocolate bars in the diapers, and your guest have to guess what chocolate bar it was before it melted.
Luck!!

The first game I thought of was, as the guest arrive hand them a roll of toilet paper and request the remove as much paper as the would like from the roll. Do not answer questions just have them take as much as they want.

The one whos section is closest to the Mom's actual belly size wins.

The second is to dump a bag of rice into a bowl and dump in a container of different size safty pins and blind fold each contestant. Give them 60 seconds to pick out as many saftey pins as possible. It is amazing how much the pins feel like rice even the larger ones.
