The Price is Right Baby Shower Game

Over the weekend I co-hosted a Fox themed baby shower for my buddy Sara and have a full recap coming later this week but today wanted to share my favorite baby shower game, which we played on Saturday.

I love this game because it's easy to plan, fun for the guests and great for the mom-to-be, which in my book counts as a win-win-win.

As the host, all you have to do is buy a collection of baby items. I love having a theme to the items I purchase - for Carolyn's Couples Baby Shower I did a "New Parent Survival Price is Right" and bought items that new moms, dads and babies couldn't live without. For Sara's shower I decided to do "Diaper Bag Price is Right".

So I bought what I think are the MUST HAVE items for your diaper bag....
Diapers, Wipes, Onesies, Change of Clothes, Pacifiers, Pacifier Wipes, Diaper Bag Dispenser, Hand/Face Wipes, Burp Cloths, Diaper Cream and Hand Sanitizer


The only other thing I did was make up a game card that had a list of all the items on it with a place to fill in the price.

To play the game you give each guest a game card, show them the items and then they guess how much each individual item costs, whoever's grand total comes closes to the actual grand total WINS!

But the best part of the game? Mama-to-be gets to go home with all these diaper bag essentials!

It'd be really fun to do this with bath essentials as well, I think I'll give that a try next time!

Love this!! :) Such a fun shower game!

I like this idea. And I think it would be hilarious to do at a couples shower too. Could you imagine how off most men would be with those prices? Jesse would be so far up a creek without a paddle. Completely clueless.

How fun!!! I love games at baby showers (that don't including smelling diapers or drinking from a bottle! Haha)

I will have to keep this in mind! Thanks for sharing!

What a cute idea! I am actually hosting a baby shower in two weeks that is Co-ed and I have been trying to figure out if I should even do games, but I think this one would be good for everyone!
