Icebreaker Baby Shower Games

Don’t Say Baby

Get ready for some laughs with this fun game, where saying “baby” is a big no-no. Guests will avoid saying the forbidden word to keep their pin safe. If someone slips, others can snatch their pin. This simple game doesn’t require much prep but promises lots of fun, making it a great option for a last-minute celebration.
