The Mom Or Dad Baby Shower game is a super fun and simple game for Mom and Dad to play at the same time! What makes this game a must at your Baby Shower is everyone can participate!  There is very little prep and you can decide how long the game lasts by simply not asking any more questions. 

Each parent and guest will be asked a question simultaneously. There really are no winners or losers! It’s  fantastic fun to ask the questions and laugh at all the fun responses!

This game is great because you can hand out fun and silly rewards to the ‘winners’, like a Starbucks card or play with giving out joke gifts. 

This is a great opportunity to give the parents some nice gifts also, for instance, a free week of diaper service or a free spa night for Mom and Dad.  If you choose to not hand out gifts, the fun of this game is great all by itself.

HOW TO PLAY Mom Or Dad Baby Shower Game

1-EACH GUEST receives a ‘Dad prop’ and a ‘Mom prop’. 

PROPS:  Use a bow tie and fake red lips, blue bottle and pink bottle, blue onesie and pink onesie. If you want to create your own prop, get a 3×5 card and draw pink things and blues things on each, or glue pink and blue marshmallows in bunny shapes on the cards. Use your imagination for the props! 

2-Seating and Guest arrangement

Seat Mom and Dad in plain view of all the guests. Then be sure the guests are seated so they can move their props freely. 

There are no rules here, have fun placing Mom and Dad ~ blindfold them or even place them back to back! 

3-Question Time 

This is the fun and easy part! Have a piece of paper handy to note everybody’s answers as the game progresses. Instruct Dad and Mom and the guests to have their props on their laps. When you ask a question, everyone will hold up the pink or blue prop to indicate who they think does what how much!  Dad -Blue or Mom- Pink
