Fun Baby Shower Games That Aren’t Too Cheesy

Somehow, a global pandemic has barely put a damper on how many baby showers we’re attending these days. Of course, many of them have been virtual baby showers on Zoom — but now that states are reopening, we have a few IRL, outdoors and otherwise socially-distanced shower events on our calendars too. And while we love a good shower and especially dig a super-creative theme, does anybody really want to play the same awful diaper-smelling game? Nope. Not us.

The same goes for “guess the baby food flavor” and taking bets on how large the mom-to-be’s belly is. But luckily, there are a few not-too-painful baby shower games that anyone can have a blast playing.

We’ve rounded up some of the best baby shower games around to help break up the endless cycle of tissue paper and cake. Don’t worry: Nobody will roll their eyes at these games. In fact, we’re pretty sure everyone will be having too much fun to care whether they look silly.
