Choose Activities

You will love these baby shower games and activities! The key is to make sure the games are all different and to start with one that will be a great ice breaker to get everyone in the mood and chatting. I suggest choosing 2 or 3 of these activities so it is just enough for fun but not an overly planned day.

To ensure you have the most fun possible, don’t forget this shower is a day where everything is about making you happy, make sure you elect one or two people who can guide the activities for the shower like (organising, decorating & leading the day). It will make the day run smoothly and allow you to be there to enjoy! 

Some super fun ideas I have come across are:

  • Guess Who?-  This is great but needs a little planning ahead. Get all your guests to email your bestie with a baby photo that can be printed out for the day. On the day pin all the photos up on a board and everyone can try to guess who is who. You can have little prizes for the most correct guesses and it is fun to see baby pics of your friends and family!

    • Photo Prop Table- This allows everyone to participate in fun photos which makes for great memorabilia and cute photos you can put in a baby scrapbook or album. You could have medallion ribbons for the VIP’s of the shower e.g. mama-to-be, nanna-to-be, aunty-to-be.

    • Gender Reveal- This one only works if you plan to announce the gender of your baby at the shower and nobody other than you and your partner know. You can start with a guessing game, followed by the grand reveal and then a few little prizes or serve up cake. Really fun idea and something that will have everyone chatting the rest of your shower. Best to do this activity towards the second half of your shower so it does not interrupt your plans. People love talking about the gender and might be too distracted for games if you reveal early on in your shower.

    • Pin Mr. Spermy on Miss Eggy- Much like pin the tail on the donkey but a more adult version. So you can be a conceptual or realistic as you want. The idea being the board has a picture of an egg and the blindfolded guest must try to place the sperm within the boundaries of the egg to win. It is a silly game but really funny to watch. So have your chair placed like a thrown so you can watch the fun unfold in comfort!

    • Messages for Baby- A really sweet idea, you have a cute journal or diary and ask everyone to write a message to baby that will be read out on their 21st birthday. If you do photo props you could add the photos into the book later on for a great book of memories to cherish. If video’s are more your thing do a pass around camera where all the guest can add a recorded video message with the same purpose.

    • Labour or Loving?- Ok this one I LOVE! It is so funny and makes great conversation. You can have your bestie find collections of photos already made up. These can be found on Pinterest and then can be downloaded or edited for your own shower. Basically this game has photos of women’s faces either in the middle of labour or a porn scene and the task is to guess which one each lady belongs to. It is a bunch of fun and really brings people out of their shell and will have you in stitches!

    • Gift Unwrapping- This is always going to be your favourite thing to do. Sit on the comfiest chair with you guest gathered around the pile of gifts and unwrap each one. The cute and thoughtful gifts you get will have you feeling really special and give you the lift you need to make it through the last trimester.

    • Onesie & Bib Decorating- Buy a bunch of plain white onesies and bibs (you can get these at great prices from stores like Target and Kmart) put them on a decorating table with a bunch of fabric pens and paints and get you guests to decorate one each. This will give you an huge supply of designer onesies and bibs that can make great photos with bub once born!
