11 Modern Baby Shower Games That Are Fun

Baby showers have been held since the 1940s to celebrate new parents and upcoming births. Naturally, playing games and participating in activities help keep the event fun and moving. It’s important you choose modern baby shower games to include in your next event.

Many traditional games have been used for decades and need updating. They no longer offer the excitement hosts are looking for in a celebration for the mom-to-be. Finding fun baby shower games can be difficult if you are unsure where to begin.

Modern technology provides dozens of ways to interact with guests at your baby shower, both in person and virtually. Thankfully, WebBabyShower has 11 modern baby shower games that will certainly be a hit at your next event!

Guess the Baby Filter (via TikTok & CapCut)

The Guess the Baby Filter comes from the TikTok & CapCut digital apps. It uses an AI filter with a video editing platform to create a future baby picture from photos of one or two people.

Guests can take part by following these steps:

  1. Log into TikTok
  2. Search for a video using the ‘future baby’ trend
  3. Locate the button above the video’s profile labeled “CapCut- Try this Template.”
  4. Click on “Use template in CapCut.” Then ‘Use template’ on the filter option.
  5. Select the photo or photos you want to use, then click on ‘Preview’.
  6. Once you see the result, you can share it by using ‘Export’ to ‘Save and share on TikTok’ or ‘Save to your device’.
  7. From here, collect all the videos created by guests and share them with a projector during the baby shower. Attendees will guess which person’s future baby belongs to whom. The guest with the most correct guesses wins the game.

Baby Emoji Guessing Game

Try including the Baby Emoji Guessing Game with modern baby shower games for small groups! Hosts will create a set of emojis that hint at a baby item or baby-related term. You can get as simple or elaborate as you’d like. For example: 👶🍼= baby bottle or 🧷= diaper pin

Display each emoji phrase at a time, allowing attendees to write down their guesses. The person with the most correct answers wins.

“Caption This Baby” Contest

Creating captions is an entertaining way to have guests interact during your baby shower. The ‘Caption This Baby’ game uses various cute and funny pictures of babies for attendees to create comical captions for Instagram or TikTok. These photos can be from the internet, the guest of honor, or the attendees.

  1. First, display one photo at a time, giving everyone a chance to come up with a hilarious or adorable caption.
  2. Next, go through all the baby pictures and compile the guests’ selections.
  3. Finally, vote as a group on the best caption for each photo and designate the winner.

Diaper Pong

This adult baby shower game, Diaper Pong, is a modern twist on the classic Beer Pong game of days gone by. Rather than using red Solo cups, guests will toss ping-pong balls into diapers secured on a board.

To make this modern game fun for everyone, be sure to:

  1. Use different sizes of diapers to create a fun and unique challenge.
  2. Assign different points to each diaper and label them accordingly.
  3. Break up players into teams for a friendly competition.
  4. Keep track of each team’s points to declare a winner.

Silent Baby Karaoke

Try including Silent Baby Karaoke when you need fun, modern baby shower games that don’t require supplies or an elaborate setup. Like traditional karaoke, this activity requires players to lip-sync to popular baby songs or lullabies.

What makes this game amusing is the lack of music. Each guest will silently lip-sync while others try to figure out what song it is. The first person to guess correctly wins a point. Keep track of each person’s points to determine the winner at the end of the game.

Baby Fishbowl

Fun baby shower games, like Baby Fishbowl, will surely be a hit at your next celebration! This activity combines the popular group games of Taboo and Charades into an entertaining contest.

To play Baby Fishbowl, just follow these steps.

  1. Have guests write out baby-related terms, phrases, or items on slips of paper and add them to a bowl.
  2. Split the attendees into two teams, alternating between them with each turn, which lasts 60 seconds.
  3. The first round will mimic the game Taboo. Guests choose a slip of paper and describe the term or object without saying it directly until the time runs out or their team guesses correctly.
  4. Once both teams work through all the slips, they move on to round two. This time, guests will act out the slip of paper like Charades until a team member guesses correctly or the time runs out.
  5. For added fun, you can include a round three after both teams complete their slips. Here, players will only have the choice of using one word to describe the slip of paper and have their team guessing and laughing the entire time!

“What’s in the Diaper Bag?” Challenge

‘What’s in the Diaper Bag?’ is an amusing adult baby shower game everyone will love to try! You only need a diaper bag and some standard and maybe not-so-traditional baby supplies.

To keep this modern baby shower game exciting, try to include:

  1. Basic items that are simple to guess.
  2. Supplies that are in odd packaging.
  3. Products that make noise when handled.

Players must guess what’s in the diaper bag without looking inside. They have to rely on their other senses. The person with the most correct answers wins the game.

Guess the Baby Food

‘Guess the Baby Food’ is a fun baby shower game for small groups! All you need is a blindfold and some baby food for an afternoon of amusement.

Attendees can examine the jar, smell it, and have a taste to try and guess what it is while blindfolded. The person with the most correct answers wins the game. Some ways to keep the game safe and moving along smoothly include:

  1. Purchase different sizes and types of baby food jars.
  2. Cover the labels with paper or Post-it notes.
  3. Have a package of disposable spoons for each participant to use one on each jar to avoid cross-contamination.
  4. For added fun, record a video showing guests’ reactions and guesses to each jar for a TikTok compilation to share after the baby shower.

Baby Bottle Chugging Contest

Similar to modern baby shower games with food, the ‘Baby Bottle Chugging Contest’ involves guests drinking an assortment of drinks from bottles. The challenge is to finish the entire bottle by drinking through the nipple.

Attendees will compete against other guests to finish drinking their baby bottles first to win the game. Hosts can include various drinks, like water, apple juice, or milk, but be sure to avoid carbonated beverages!

Diaper Relay 

Be sure to include a Diaper Relay when you want fun and modern baby shower games for small groups! This activity is perfect for co-ed celebrations and showcases everyone’s diaper-changing skills.

Hosts will split guests into teams and compete against each other while racing to change the diaper on a baby doll or teddy bear. The team that finishes its diapering tasks first wins.

Some entertaining ways to add humor include:

  1. Offer different diaper sizes for the perfect fit.
  2. Using stuffed animals that won’t diaper easily.
  3. Add a time limit to complete each round.

Baby Shower Trivia

All you’ll need for ‘Baby Shower Trivia’ are some predetermined questions and answers. These can align with an ongoing theme or touch on the guest of honor’s favorite things.
