Baby Shower Games

These are diaper pins to wear at a baby shower. Every guest gets one. One diaper has a sticker inside labeled "dirty". I put a larger pin on that one so I know it gets handed out. Whoever gets that diaper (everyone opens theirs up to check for the sticker) gets the door prize. Or you can use them as a game.

Whenever someone crosses their legs or says a prearranged name (such as the guest of honors name), the person who catches them gets their pin. At the end, whoever has the most pins wins a prize. You could also attach them to a stick-on label and use as name tags for each guest.

Approximate Time: 2 hours to make 40 pins.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut fabric in 4 inch squares. At a corner of the square, fold the 2 sides in to make a point. Fold the point up. Fold each side in and over the folded up point. Adjust to make it look like a diaper.

  2. Stick a small safety pin in the center. Cut off the access material above the pin.

  3. Cut a 10 inch piece of ribbon. It goes quicker if you cut all the ribbon and squares at once. Tie a small knot at each end. Cross over forming a loop at the top and glue in the center.

  4. Glue diaper onto the ribbon at the cross over point. Attach a straight pin at the top to attach to clothing.

  5. One diaper put a sticker inside. Write "dirty" on it. Use a larger safety pin on this one so you know when someone does it get.
