10 Co-Ed Baby Shower Games for Everyone to Enjoy

Planning a co-ed baby shower brings a unique twist to traditional baby showers, making it a memorable event for both expectant parents and their guests. Here are ten entertaining co-ed baby shower games that will keep your guests engaged and laughing.

1. Family Feud: Baby Edition

Modeled after the popular TV game show, prepare questions related to parenting and baby items, gathering answers from the mom-to-be beforehand. Participants guess her top answers. A fun twist: have each player introduce themselves and explain how they know the parents-to-be before they give their answer.

2. The Great Chocolate Diaper Challenge

A hilarious yet somewhat “eww”-inducing game where various types of melted chocolate bars are placed in diapers. Guests must guess which type of chocolate is in each diaper. It’s a simple game that’s perfect for a summer gathering, with chocolates melting amusingly in the heat.

3. Balloon Baby Drop

A crowd-pleaser where men place balloons under their shirts and attempt to drop the “baby” without using their hands. The creativity and hilarity of the methods used to “give birth” will have everyone in stitches.

4. Diaper Raffle

Encourage guests to bring diapers and wipes in exchange for raffle tickets. This is especially helpful for parents expecting their second child, as diapers are always needed. Draw the raffle at the end of the shower to award a fun prize.

5. Messages for Every Milestone

Provide guests with numbered envelopes and cards, with each number representing a future age of the child. Guests write a note for the child to read on that birthday, creating a touching keepsake that grows more meaningful each year.

6. Guess the Baby Food

Purchase several varieties of baby food jars, remove the labels, and have guests taste or smell to guess the flavor. Scorecards can add a competitive edge, with prizes for the most accurate palates.

7. Baby Picture Matching Game

Ask guests to bring baby photos of themselves, then pin these pictures on a board. Everyone tries to match the baby photos with the correct guest. This game is a great icebreaker and sparks plenty of storytelling.

8. Bottle Chug

Fill baby bottles with your beverage of choice (alcoholic for adults, or non-alcoholic options for all). Contestants race to chug the bottle’s contents the fastest. It’s harder than it looks, and it’s hilarious to watch.

9. Baby Bucket List

Set up a station where guests can write down an activity or goal they hope the child will achieve or experience. These can range from “Ride a bike” to “Visit Paris.” Collect these in a “bucket” for the parents to share with their child as they grow.

10. Pacifier Hunt

Before the party, hide pacifiers around the event space. Challenge guests to find as many as they can within a set time limit. The person or team with the most pacifiers wins a prize. It’s like an Easter egg hunt, but with pacifiers!

Incorporating these games into your co-ed baby shower will not only entertain guests but also create lasting memories for the parents-to-be. Remember, the key to a successful baby shower is laughter, love, and celebration of the new life to come.
