The 9 Best Baby Shower Games

1. Don’t Say, Baby

As you greet all the guests, hand them a clothespin to wear on their dress or shirt and tell everyone that they can’t say the word ‘baby’. Throughout the party, if they catch any other guest saying the word then they can steal that guest's clothespin! The guest who ends up with the most number of clothespins wins!

This game will make the guests speak to each other in innovative ways and make conversations funny and interesting.
