Sometimes, Baby Showers can border on the vulgar or obscene. Here are some clean and wholesome game ideas that you can use for your baby shower:
“Name that Saint” is a fun game that can last the entire shower. Before the party, make small pieces of paper with the names of Biblical characters or religious figures (such as Martin Luther, Saint Francis, etc.). As each guest arrives, pin a name to their back. Their job is to figure out who they are. They can ask each other guest just 3 questions, and they cannot ask a question like “who am I.” The questions must be able to have a “yes” or a “no” answer. When you give instructions, give them some sample questions such as “Am I male or female?” and “Do I appear in the Old Testament?” The first person to guess who they are wins a door prize.
“You Write the Hymn” is another exciting game, and works best if you have a larger group that you can divide into at least 3 smaller groups. Give each group a classic children’s song, such as “Jesus Loves Me,” “The B-I-B-L-E,” “Onward Christian Soldiers,” etc. Each group should rewrite the lyrics to the classic song, with the mom-to-be, her partner, and her baby in mind. After a few minutes, each group should sing their song for the mom-to-be.
“Moses in the Basket” can be a fun game as well. For this game, you will need to make one “basket” for each guest out of a napkin or a piece of white cloth. Inside one of them, place a piece of picture with the word “Moses” on it. At one point during the shower, ask your guests to all open their baskets. The one who has “Moses” wins. Instead of a piece of paper, you can use a baby figurine, or even a small, plastic “cake-topper” type baby. You may be able to find one of these at a craft store.
There is a fun variation that that some people have used on this game. If someone says the word “baby” during the shower, the first person to catch them gets to keep their basket or baskets. At the end of the party, give two door prizes: one for the person with the most baskets, and one for the person with the Moses.
