One of the biggest twin pregnancy excitements for any mom-to-be is the baby shower. If you’ve been tasked with organizing a twin baby shower then you have a lot of planning ahead of you and an unforgettable experience to craft.
Preparing for hosting a great baby shower is a fun and thoughtful activity that has one main aim: to shower the anticipating mom with gifts, love, and happiness. And that’s entirely up to you and the other guests.
After you’ve decided on a theme and have sent out crafty baby shower invites it’s time to plan the twin baby shower games – they’re at the heart of any baby shower. You want them to be fun, engaging, and challenging, and also running throughout the whole party to ensure that the guests are entertained at all times.
Here we present you with the best twin baby shower games ideas that will rock your party. Feel free to customize them and don’t be afraid to unleash your creative flair!
The Best Raffle Baby Shower Diaper Game
For this game, you will need to cue in the guests in advance and tell them to bring along packs of diapers. When entering the party each guest will receive one raffle ticket against one pack of diapers. The number of packs of diapers one could bring is unlimited and only increases the chance of winning the prize.
What’s in it for the mom? She will be stocked up on diapers ranging in sizes for the double-trouble that’s to come, so go ahead and help a friend out.
The best thing is that you don’t have to make the raffle tickets from scratch. M&H Invites has already done that for you. All you have to do is purchase the 50 Peas in a Pod Twins Diaper Raffle Tickets and either hand them out at entry to the party or alternatively, send them out with the baby shower invites. These are printed on a premium matte card stock making them easy to write with loads of different pen types.
Diaper Shower Games Continued: Double Diaper Time
What is the biggest struggle that a new mom of two experiences? You guessed it right, putting diapers on her twins!
This game allows the guests to get immersed into the day of the life of a mom of twins, and also gives them the chance to win fun prizes.
So this is how the game goes. Each participant will need a cloth diaper, a few safety pins, and a doll. Pair up the guests and tell them that each team has to put the cloth diaper on the doll using only one hand. You might even want to tie their other hand behind their back to make sure that there is no cheating. Once they’re finished it’s up to the mom to decide which team has done the best job. The criteria is that the diaper is put on as neatly as possible. The winning team gets their prizes and the mom gets the cloth diapers.
This is a great way to gift the mom with cloth diapers so make sure you bring good-quality ones. We recommend you the Gerber Birdseye 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers because they’re made of 100% birdseye cotton material that is wonderfully absorbent and prevents skin irritations and diaper rashes. As a plus, they can also be used as a burp cloth, washed, and reused again. Cloth diapers are a great sustainable alternative to traditional diapers and a great baby shower gift.
More Unique Games to Play: My Water Broke
The Water Broke is one of the most fun twin baby shower games and a classic one! It’s easily customizable for a twin baby shower and will provide entertainment throughout the whole party.
What you will need for this game are tiny toy babies which you will freeze into ice cubes. The My Water Broke Baby Shower Ice Cubes Game 1″ Tiny Plastic Babies provide 36 ice cubes and are extra cute.
Give each guest a delicious drink at the start of the party and put two ice cubes in each glass for the two babies-on-the go. The first guest to have their ice cubes fully melt and the toy float to the top has to yell, “My water broke”! They will then present the tiny baby toys to the host and get their prize in return.
But the fun doesn’t end here, because you are sure to hear the phrase “My water broke” being yelled at until the last ice cube melts. Let’s hope that the mom’s water doesn’t break during the party because no one will take her seriously while this game is going.
The Socks Dilemma: One of the Funniest Twin Baby Shower Games
Yet another one of those unique twin baby shower games that put the guests into the mother’s shoes. A hardship any mom of two is faced with is pairing the freshly washed tiny socks out of the laundry basket. Somehow there is also a runner amongst those baby socks…
But that’s a universal struggle, so the guests should be quite skilled at this game. What you need to do is buy a bunch of baby socks in all sorts of crazy patterns and colors (the more diverse the better). As a given, these will remain for the mom so pick wisely! Little Me offers a great assortment of 20-Pack Newborn Baby Infant & Toddler Boys Socks which are ideal for boy baby shower games. If the twins on the go are girls, go for the Zaples Baby Non-Slip Grip Ankle Socks with Non-Skid Soles for girls.
Both of the boy-girl twins’ socks are super comfortable and the multiple designs will match your twins’ outfits with style. To make it a full-set baby shower gift we recommend you add the Born First – Show Off Matching Onesies by TwinStuff. You are guaranteed to be the best baby shower host of all time!
After you’ve bought loads of different pairs of baby socks, throw them all in one pile on the floor and mix them up. The guests will have to pair up as many socks as they can during a certain time frame decided by you. The person with the most pairs of baby socks wins this game.
Don’t Say “Twins”. Can You?
If you are looking to incorporate more ongoing twin baby shower games into your party, try this one. You need to get clothespins and make a sign that reads “Don’t Say, Twins”.
When the guests enter the party attach an equal number of clothespins to them. The rule is that every time someone mentions the word “twins” they get one of their clothespins taken away. But here is the twist: the person who hears them say “twins” gets their clothespin for themselves. The person with the most clothespins at the end of the party shower wins the game. What a challenge!
