Fun and inventive baby shower games offer guests a unique way to feel involved in the celebration. One of these games involves making a board featuring the baby photo of every guest and then having them try to guess who's who. In the invitation, the party planner asks the guests to bring along one of their baby photos. This game, commonly known as "Who's That Baby," also serves as an icebreaker for any guests who don't know each other already.

Another fun baby shower game that places a special emphasis on the guests is "Baby Bingo." In this game, each guest receives a bingo card featuring different items on the mother-to-be's registry, and they play along as she opens her presents for the chance to win prizes of their own. One interactive, silly baby shower game is known as "Pin the Sperm on the Egg," a revamp of the classic children's party staple, "Pin the Tail on the Donkey."

The game Bobbing For Nipples is almost like Bobbing for Apples, except instead of using apples, players use nipples from a baby's bottle. The host gathers the nipples into a bucket of water, and each guest must get on her knees with her hands behind her back. The guests have two minutes to gather the nipples, and the person with the most nipples when the buzzer goes off is the winner. In another fun game, called Guess The Measurements, guests write down their guesses for the width of the mother's stomach is, and the person with closest measurement gets the prize.

For the blindfolded diaper changing race, have each participant stand in front of a table. Place a diaper and a doll in front of each participant and then blindfold them. When they hear the word "Go," the contestants put the diaper on the doll as fast as possible. The first person to put the diaper on the doll correctly wins.

The baby photo guessing game is a game in which all guests participate. Before the shower, ask that each guest bring a photo of herself as a baby. At the shower, give each guest a pencil and piece of paper. Show the photos one at a time to the guests and have them write on the paper who they believe is pictured in the baby photo. The guest that guesses the most photos correctly wins.

The family trivia game consists of asking guests a variety of questions regarding families and babies based on celebrity lives and the lives of those they know. The person that answers the most questions correctly wins.

The game Bobbing For Nipples is almost like Bobbing for Apples, except instead of using apples, players use nipples from a baby's bottle. The host gathers the nipples into a bucket of water, and each guest must get on her knees with her hands behind her back. The guests have two minutes to gather the nipples, and the person with the most nipples when the buzzer goes off is the winner. In another fun game, called Guess The Measurements, guests write down their guesses for the width of the mother's stomach is, and the person with closest measurement gets the prize.
