I'm throwing my best friend a co-ed baby shower and need help with games. I don't want to do the traditional baby scramble, dirty diaper, baby food game, etc... I want cute and creative games to play. It's going to be all military and I want games that people will actually have fun playing - I feel they will get bored with the usual games.
Any suggestions would be great! so far I have:
Tie Dye Onsies
and really that's it.. :(
Get a bunch of cupcake paper cups and playdough-- everyone has to make a "play dough" baby and put in in the "crib" (paper cups).
I like that one because it's silly and you don't need everyone's attention all at once to play it.
i liked at my friends baby shower they had questions about the mom to be and dad to be to see who knew them best, and the questions were funny and had multiple choice answers
Here are some ideas. But for a coed shower I notice men just hang out together and drink beer and leave the women alone :lol:
Get little clothes pins and everyone gets one. Pick out a couple of words that they can't say ex. Baby. If someone hears someone say it they can take all the pins that they are wearing. The person with the most pins at the end of the shower wins a prize. We have lots of fun playing that game.
Have everyone put a paper plate on the top of there head and have them all try to draw a baby on the plate, its a fun easy game :)
One of the games that we played at my sister's that I thought was a little different was: When everyone gets there you go around and ask everyone how many bibs/onesies/whatever item you choose, that they think she will get at the shower. Write down their answers with their name. Then have someone count that item while she opens. Whoever gets closest wins. It's not an active game but still fun.
We had all the guys see who could drink the fastest out of a baby bottle but as the other poster said they mainly just hung out drinking.
I co-hosted a co-ed one about a year ago and we had 3 teams of 2 people race to change diapers on fully-dressed dolls while everyone else watched. Two young bachelors ended up teamed up, a father-daughter, and the parents. Of course the parents won, but everyone had SUCH a kick out of watching the bachelors try to figure it out, and people shouting hints to them and stuff. Might not be able to pull it off again w/o the right group of people, but that was the most enjoyed game we had.
I had a co-ed shower and one of the games that everyone liked was I had everyone untie their shoes, blow up a balloon and put it under their shirt. They had to try and tie their shoes without popping the balloon. A lot of guys didnt realize how hard it is to tie shoes while "pregnant"
Quoting The Doctor:" Get a bunch of cupcake paper cups and playdough-- everyone has to make a "play dough" baby and put in ... [snip!] ... in the "crib" (paper cups). I like that one because it's silly and you don't need everyone's attention all at once to play it."
I really like this idea! Adding it to the list. Thanks! :)
Get gift bags and on each one put one letter and spell out BABY GIRL or BOY put something in each bag that starts with that letter and whoever guesses the right item the most wins a prize
im currently looking for games for mine too, but we re sticking with pretty common games....but i did find one that i thought was cute. Get a picture of the mom and a picture of the dad, pretty close up (so you can see all the features nicely), and print out a lot of copies of each. Put the people in teams and have them pick the features from each parent they think the baby will have. then they will glue or tape them on one of the pictures....it looks hilarious. I will link you to my pinterest so you can see!

lol. I figured this would be the case and am prepared for it (Costco has a great beer selection) ;) I am however trying to come up with ways to embarrass the dad to be like get him a bib that says "dad to be" and make him wear it throughout the party or make him a "bump" to wear throughout. He and I have a great relationship as far as making fun of each other so he should half expect something like this. :)
