Baby shower games all about celebrating the coming of a new baby and having some fun with the soon-to-be mother. Games at showers don't have to be expensive or complex; the simpler ones tend to be the best. Having participants trying to draw a baby without seeing it is a funny and cheap way to generate some laughs.

Things You'll Need

  • cheap white paper plates
  • pens

Video of the Day

Give each woman one paper plate and a pen.

When the host says go, each player is to put the paper plate on top of her head, then attempt to draw a baby. They can try to do just the face or the entire baby. No peeking is allowed!

When they are done, have them remove the plate and write their names on the back.

Gather all the paper plates and give them to the mommy-to-be. She will then pick the best picture of a baby and announce who the winner is.

Tips & Warnings

  • The mother-to-be or host can also add other categories, such as which attempted drawing looks more like an alien, which looks most like a scribble, or which looks like a portrait of a grandmother to lengthen the game.
