From eating melted chocolate off of nappies to waddling around like a pregnant woman, trying to get the coin between your knees to fall into a bucket, if you've attended a baby shower before, you already know how awkward the games can be.

Here are five baby shower games that are actually fun:

Donut decorating

Set up a donut decorating station consisting of plain glazed donuts along with a range of delicious toppings. Use frosting, fruit and candies to create your own “baby donut” complete with eyes and hair. To finish the look, place a dummy inside the donut hole. For the foodies as well as those who prefer to lay back and watch the baby shower action (rather than embarrass themselves), this is an ideal form of entertainment.

Nappy Pong

You’ve heard of beer pong before, well diaper (or nappy) pong is slightly different, but just as fun. All you have to do is trade those red solo cups filled with beer for nappies.

To set up the game you will need:

A1 poster board
8 newborn baby nappies (folded as you would if they were to be worn by a baby so as to create a pouch)
Tape or glue
Glitter, stickers, decorative tape (optional)
Ping pong balls


Divide The board into three parts from top to bottom, fold the board at each of these points so that it can stand upright on its own.
Tape the folded nappies onto the board.
Decorate using whatever you have available.

The rules are as follows:

Round 1

Divide into even groups.
Each player throws two balls.
The player from each group with the highest score advances.

Round 2
Each player throws two balls.
The two players with the highest scores advance.

Round 3
Each player throws two balls
Highest score wins

Tie breaker
In the event of a tie, each player will throw one ball and the highest score wins.

Bottle chugging

This game is especially fun for those who are super competitive. Have everyone line up and give them each a baby bottle filled with a liquid of your choice, juice, milk, or even beer (for guests who aren't pregnant) will do. When you shout, "Go!" players have to drink the liquid as fast as possible – through the nipple, cheaters are disqualified. Whoever finishes first is the winner.

Celeb mom trivia

Who wasn’t obsessed with Kylie Jenner’s secret pregnancy? This is a game for true lovers of pop culture. Create a quiz of celebrity mom related questions and divide guests into teams to battle it out. The team that answers the most questions correctly wins.

Baby food taste test

Have guests taste test different baby foods. Remove the labels from the jars and replace them with numbers (1 to however many options there are). Set out pens and paper for partakers to jot down their answers. From prunes in paste form to a liquidised roast dinner, the person who can guess the most flavours correctly, wins. Those who aren’t participating can still laugh along and enjoy the show.
