Are you planning a baby shower but aren’t wild about traditional baby shower games? If you want to spice things up a little, here are four fun Minute to Win Baby Shower It-style games you can play to make your baby shower a memorable one. Your guests are guaranteed to goo-goo, gaga over them!
Baby Rattle Minute to Win It
The first minute to win it baby shower game on our list is called Baby Raffle. This game can be very entertaining especially for a coed baby shower and even more so if kids are in attendance!
To start the game, split into two teams. Decide who goes first from each team. The goal of this game is for players to transfer all gumballs from one soda bottle to another. Give a point for the winner! Repeat until everyone takes a turn.
Yes, that’s right! This is the game you may have played when you were a child! Have 3 people in each team. The host will only tell the first person what they need to draw. Whether it be a duck, a baby crying, the first person will start drawing on the second person’s back. The second person will need to try to copy the drawing of the person that is drawing on their back! The last person who is leaning against the wall will try to mimic what they think is being drawn on them and guess what it is! If they cannot guess it, the second person can try to guess it!
Diaper Pong Minute to Win It
To start the game, split into two teams. Make sure you’ve got the diapers set up with points labeled clearly on each of them.
For the 1st round, have each player throw two balls. The player from each team with the highest score advances.
For the 2nd round, repeat to find two more players to advance to the final stage.
In the 3rd and final stage, the 4 players throw two balls and the highest score wins.
Ping Pong Bounce Minute to Win It
Ping Pong Bounce game requires a long table, a baby bathtub, and ping pong balls. Fill the baby bathtub with water and place it at one end of the table. Put the ping pong balls in a bucket or container and place them at the other end of the table, opposite the bathtub. The goal is to get as many ping pong balls into the bathtub before time runs out!
Extra challenge: instead of a baby bathtub, you can place small plastic dishes (think sundae bowls, anything that floats) on a large water-filled container. The objective is to bounce the ping pong balls into the floating targets!
Sugar Baby Minute to Win It
Another fun Minute to Win it baby shower game is Sugar Baby. For this game, you will need to find letter-shaped candy or gummies (like these ones). You will also need a big bowl filled with sugar, a plastic spoon, and a disposable tablecloth to make your life easier.
- The first step is to cover the playing field with that plastic tablecloth – trust me.
- The second step is to pick out enough candy letters to spell the word “baby”, or any chosen word or name. Then, bury those letters into the sugar bowl.
- The third step is to make your friends play, and laugh hysterically.
The players must pinch the plastic spoon between their teeth, search through the sugar, and fish out the letters. They can only use the spoon so it’s helpful to have them hold their hands behind their back to avoid the temptation of grabbing the bowl. The first or fastest one to dig out all four letters is the winner!
Extra challenge: rather than just fishing the letters out of the bowl, have your players use the spoon in their teeth to arrange the letters on the table to spell “baby” correctly!
Dizzy Diaper Minute to Win It
Another game is called Dizzy Diaper. All you will need to play this game is a roll of toilet paper and two players with a good sense of humor! Player 1 will hold the roll of toilet paper on a holder. Player 2 will take the end of the toilet paper in their hand. When the round starts, player 2 must start spinning around and wrap themselves in the toilet paper – preferably around the lower half of their body! The fastest or first team to successfully wrap their player in a toilet paper diaper wins!
Extra challenge: Tuck the end of the toilet paper into Player 2’s waistband instead of having them hold it in their hands. Have them also tuck their arms in. So if the toilet paper breaks, Player 1 has to help them start wrapping again!
Pop it BABY Minute to Win It
The final game to jazz up your baby shower is Pop it BABY. Before the guests arrive, write out the letters B-A-B-Y on separate slips of paper and stuff each of them into their own balloons. Inflate the balloons, and be sure to keep them appropriately grouped together.
Your players must pair up and try to pop the balloons using only their heads to get the letters inside! Once they have popped all the balloons and collected all the letters, they will need to arrange them in the correct order to win. For a simpler option, you can ask the players to sit on the balloons to pop.
Extra challenge: You can ask the guests to spell out different words for different rounds of the game. Just be sure to keep the number of balloons the same and keep the word fairly simple. For example, spell out “baby” in one group of balloons and “girl” in another. This way, every player has to figure out a new word puzzle!
