Duck themed baby shower is perfect for couples who are keeping the gender of the baby a big secret. It is one of the cutest gender-neutral themes out there. Simply adding a touch of pink or blue to the decors will convey the gender of the baby for parents-to-be who already know the gender of their upcoming baby.

Rubber Duck Baby Shower Invitation

Creating rubber duck themed baby shower invitations can be a cute and playful way to set the tone for your celebration. Feature a charming illustration of a rubber duck at the top or center of the invitation with a background that resembles bubbles to create a playful and aquatic feel.

Include a whimsical header like “Splish Splash, It’s a Baby Bash!” or “Rub-a-Dub-Dub, It’s Time for Baby’s Arrival!” to convey the rubber duck theme.

Fill a clear glass bowl with blue water and add floating rubber ducks. You can also include water lilies or greenery for added visual interest.

Duck Themed Baby Shower Food

A Pot Luck Baby Shower

By having a pot luck duck themed baby shower, everyone will have plenty to eat, a variety of different food to eat, and all the hostess will need to worry about is getting the duck cake. To make it more interesting, you can challenge everyone to bring a duck themed food. I’m sure they will surprise you with what they come up with!

Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Games

Hosting a rubber ducky-themed baby shower opens up opportunities for creative and playful games that fit the theme.

Duck Pond Fishing

Set up a kiddie pool or a large container as a duck pond. Place rubber ducks in the water, each with a number written on the bottom. Guests “fish” for a duck with a toy fishing rod or a net. Prizes correspond to the numbers on the ducks.

Ducky Diaper Derby

Divide guests into teams and give each team a diapered baby doll. Using only one hand, team members must race to change the baby’s diaper. The first team to successfully change the diaper wins.

Duck Doodle

Provide guests with plain white onesies and fabric markers. They can decorate the onesies with rubber ducky and baby-themed doodles. The mom-to-be gets to keep the onesies as a cute and personalized gift.

Name that Baby Animal

This involves asking your guest to name the baby of an animal. For instance : DUCK = Baby name would be “DUCKLING”. HORSE would be FOAL, PIG would be SHOAT, FOX would be PUP, CAT would be KITTEN etc. The person who guesses the most correctly wins.
