25 New Baby Shower Games

Baby Shower Games

A super easy way to have plenty to do at a baby shower is to plan baby shower games. They seem to be all the rage these days and they can be as cheesy or as non-cheesy as you desire. Another great thing about games is they can be helpful for the new mom and dad.  Such as the diaper raffle cards we are giving away on the Journey Junkies page. Download a pink and blue design over there now, or sign up here if you’re not a member.

Below you’ll find 25 unique games ranging in theme from classic to sporty, animals to books. You’re sure to find one that fits your theme. If you’re keen on a certain game but need a different theme (or vice-versa) simply send me a message and I’ll create a custom order just for you.
