The birth of twins is an exciting time in a couple's life and is often celebrated with a baby shower. Baby showers are given by friends and family and are filled with food, fun, gifts and games. Several baby shower games are tailored for showers where the mother is expecting twins and each focuses on the fact she is having twins.
Create a game called 20 Questions that asks questions that are all about twins. Websites such as All Experts and ThinkQuest offer information on twins that can be used to craft twin trivia. Group questions in categories such as Famous Twins or the names of different multiple births. List questions on sheets of paper, hand them out to guests and give guests a set amount of time to answer as many questions correctly as possible.
Give each guest a blank piece of paper and ask each to come up with word duos such as sugar and spice, salt and pepper, Chip and Dale. Set a time limit, usually 2 to 4 minutes, in which guests need to come up with these word pairings. See which guest comes up with the most duos. For more of a challenge, label the paper from A through Z. Guests must come up with as many duos as possible that start with each letter of the alphabet.
Send the guests on a treasure hunt as a fun celebration of twin babies. Prior to this game, hide half of a pair of something -- such as different coloured baby socks, mittens, shoes and pyjamas -- throughout the building or hall where the shower is taking place. Give each guest the other items in the pairs and ask them to find the matching pieces.
Double Diaper Tag Team
Pair up guests into teams of two. Give each team a doll or teddy bear, a cloth diaper and several safety pins. The two team members must work together -- each using only one hand -- to diaper the teddy bear. The first team to finish wins.
How Many Pairs?
Purchase about 12 pairs of baby socks in as many different colours or patterns as you can find. Mix together all the socks and place them in a pile in the centre of the room. One at a time, ask guests to pair up as many socks as they can in 15 seconds. Start a stop watch for each guest's turn. Whichever guest matches up the most within the time limit, wins the game.
