Having a baby shower for twins means it will be very tempting to say the word Twins, so why not make a game of it. As guest arrives, give them a clothespin or a safety pin to attach onto their clothing, or you could have them on a chain to go around their neck. If someone hears another say Twins they can take their clothespin/safety pin. At the end of the baby shower the person with the most clothespins wins the game and gets a prize.
Playing twins baby bingo is just like ordinary bingo, but instead of numbers you use images and/or words like pregnancy, twins, newborn, you get the idea. You can make these twin bingo cards yourself too. The winner is the first to get a complete row and they must call out TWINS!
Each guest gets a bag with five items inside these five items are to be one half of a pair. Each person has ten minutes to find each item until they have five paired things. The person who pairs theirs up the fastest is the winner. Here are some ideas of what you could use:
Each bag can have completely different things, if you are using baby socks as an item in every bag then simply have different colors and patterns.
Guests have 5 minutes to name two baby animals for as many letters of the alphabet as they can. Some ideas: kitten, puppy, chick, foal, kid, joey, tadpole, whelp, gosling. The person who names the most correct answers wins.
You could use this game with two of anything maybe you would prefer something like, two baby names, two baby items, two snack foods for example.
This game is much the same as hot potato. Your guests will sit or stand in a circle and pass two baby dolls around to music. Every time the music stops the two holding the babies are out and leave the circle. The two people who are left win the game.
Guests pair up into teams and each team gets two cloth diapers, four safety pins and two baby dolls. Then all teams on the word go have to put the cloth diapers on with the safety pins on the dolls. The only thing is, and this is the fun part, each team member can only use one hand each. The team that finishes first wins.

Ask each guest before the baby shower to give you a baby photo of their own. Have them displayed on a board and number them or create a collage sheet for each person. Then everyone has to match the baby to the guest, the person who gets the most correct wins the game. It doesn’t matter if not everyone can supply you with a baby photo as long as you have enough to keep guests guessing about seven is a good number.
