Baby Shower Party Game Ideas to Keep Your Guests Entertained

Baby shower party game ideas??
This is the question which comes to every baby shower hostess' mind when she has to plan a baby shower and also brainstorm her mind to come up with an innovative game idea. There is also so much to be done in so little time. You have to organize and prepare invitations, food, drinks, party favors, schedules, and activities. You don't want your baby shower to be exactly like every other shower your guests have attended.

The challenge is to come up with new baby shower games and ideas that aren't too complicated. You don't want to spend half an hour explaining to everyone the rules of a five-minute game. You also want your games to be entertaining for your guests. When the guests start to lose interest, the game is basically over, whether it's supposed to be or not.

Let the baby games begin!
The best baby shower party game ideas are games that make your guests interact with each other. People who attend baby showers all know the guest of honor, of course, but they don't all necessarily know each other. There is a bit of awkwardness when the shower first begins. It's a good idea to come up with baby shower games ideas to break the ice and let the guests get acquainted.

A great baby shower party game to play right off the bat is the Introduction Game. The hostess starts by introducing herself, then giving one descriptive detail about herself. This detail can be anything. It could be her favorite color, dog's name, her middle name or even the last movie she saw or the book she'd read.

The next person in line has to add their name, a detail and repeat the name of the hostess and her detail. It goes on down the line, with the last person adding their name and detail. Then repeating the names and details of all the other guests. By the time the game is over, everyone will have had a few good laughs. And will have had a chance to talk to each other more.

Don't discount classic baby shower game ideas for free. The Baby Food Game is always fun for everyone. Simply buy 5 different kinds of baby food. Remove the labels. Mark each one with a number instead (be sure to write down which number is which food). Prepare a paper plate for each baby shower guest. Write the numbers 1-5 on each plate. Have each guest put a little of the baby food from the jar with the corresponding number.

At this point, the tasting begins. Each player writes down their best guess as to what five baby foods they are eating. The player with the most correct guesses wins. Be sure not to buy meat flavors just in case any of your guests are vegetarians.
