  • Set of rectangular stickers that will be folded in half lengthwise

Preparing for the Baby Pacifier Game: On the piece of paper write a list of baby shower words.  Examples: Baby, toy, gift, game, punch, cake, rattle, smile, diaper, girl, boy, pink, blue, etc. Then write each of these same words on the rectangular stickers, one word per sticker. Lengthwise each word should only cover half the sticker. Adhere one sticker on each baby pacifier necklace. Fold the sticker in half so the word is clearly visible on just one side of the sticker. Now take the piece of paper with the list of baby shower words and cut out each word. Fold up the pieces of paper with the words and place them into a cup.

How to play the Baby Pacifier Game: At the beginning of the baby shower give each baby shower guest one pacifier necklace with a word on it. Ask guests to wear the necklaces. At various points during the baby shower, select ONE word from the cup and announce it out loud. The baby shower guest with the same word on their pacifier necklace is the winner! Do this three times during the baby shower. There will be a total of three winners for this game.

    • Yay!!! Andy, I’m so happy you enjoyed those fun baby shower games! Thank you for sharing that with me. Congratulations to the new parents! Savoring and celebrating all the precious moments of childhood is so incredibly important. It’s those special memories that warm our hearts, make us smile, and allow us to welcome the new chapters of life with open arms!

  1. Wow, great ideas for baby shower games! I organized a shower for a friend a few years ago and I really struggled to figure out what to do with guests : ) I’m organizing another one for a friend this fall, and I have pinned your post for future reference. Love the pins and rice game and the pacifier games!

  2. I’d never heard of the diaper pin game. I bet that gets a lot of laughs! I’m waiting (im)patiently to play shower games for my oldest daughter. She is not at all impatient for babies so I don’t think it will be soon, but I’m bookmarking this so that we have it when the time comes.

    • Robin, thanks so much for bookmarking this site! In the near future I will be adding more helpful tips for hosting baby showers.

    • Yay! Cara, I’m so glad you found this post to be a great resource for future baby showers. More helpful baby shower posts will be coming soon…

  3. I love this! Such fun games and great for parties with the girls. I wish I was going to need this this year. I had a miscarriage, but I’m hoping that we can try again soon so we can use these fun games. I also have a few cousins and great friends who are pregnant and would love these. Definitely saving for later!

    • Hi Meagan! I’m sure your baby dream will be coming soon. Just keep the faith, stay positive and relaxed. I was in your same situation years ago, but I now have two gorgeous daughters.

  4. Great list! We are always having baby showers in our group of family and friends. Also really like your “print friendly” button. Pinning this one!!

    • Awww…thank you so much Sandy for pinning this on Pinterest! I really appreciate it. Another baby shower game post is coming soon. It will be linked up to this one. Thanks for stopping by. :-)
