The age old clothespin baby shower game is probably the most popular buzzword game played at baby showers.
The clothespin game is a fun icebreaker since you have to listen closely to hear when someone uses the word baby. You don't have to know the person, everyone is at risk of loosing their pin at anytime.
Guests just can’t help getting into it. Players have the chance to get back into the game at anytime. It's also a easy game to play and a good fit for all baby shower crowds.
Be sure to take a photo of the winner wearing all their clothespins.
First off, you will need enough clothespins for everyone
Give each guest a clothespin on arrival and explain the rules of the game:
If a person says the word "BABY" and someone hears, then they are to take that clothespin. At the end of the party the guest with the most clothespins is the winner.
See below a poem for you to use to give instruction for the clothespin game:
Please grab a clothespin
Pin it anywhere you like.
Try not to say baby
With all of your might.
If you hear someone say it,
Snatch up their pin.
And if you have the most at the end,
Shout I win !

A variation to the clothespin game.
Mommy to be cannot cross her legs or even fold her arms without discomfort during her pregnancy.
So instead of them saying the word baby, tell everyone that they are not allowed to cross their legs or even fold their arms or they willblose their clothespin to the person who calls them out.
Consider getting a nice little prize which will make winning all the sweeter.
