We’ve gathered some really good baby shower games and activities specifically to make your Care Bear baby shower a blast!
It’s also best to take a look at our General Baby Shower Game Page and check out lots more games your guests can play at the baby shower. You can even ‘tweak’ a few of them to fit your Care Bear baby shower theme.
Name that Care Bear!
Remembering all of the Care Bears is not such an easy task! Each guest gets a paper and pen. On the mark of “GO” they have 5 minutes to write down as many Care Bears as they know (and give them a bonus if they remember each Care Bear with each of their tummy symbols). You can also make it easier for them by having a picture of each Care Bear and the guests need to remember and write down each of their names.
Here are all the Care Bears and their symbols (the first 10 are the classic 10 Care Bears, and the extra ones are part of the modern Care Bear bunch):
Bedtime Bear, Birthday Bear, Cheer Bear, Friend Bear, Funshine Bear, Good Luck Bear, Grumpy Bear, Love-A-Lot Bear, Tenderheart Bear, Wish Bear, Baby Hugs Bear, Baby Tugs Bear, Champ Bear, Daydream Bear, Forest Friend Bear, Grams Bear, Harmony Bear, Perfect & Polite Panda, Proud Heart Bear, Sea Friend Bear, Secret Bear, Share Bear, Surprise Bear, Take Care Bear, Thanks-A-Lot Bear, True Heart Bear, All My Heart Bear, Always There Bear, America Cares Bear, Amigo Bear, Bashful Heart Bear, Best Friend Bear, Do-Your-Best Bear, Heartsong Bear, Hopeful Heart Bear, Laugh-A-Lot Bear, Oopsy Bear, Play-a-Lot Bear, Shine Bright Bear, Smart Heart Bear, Superstar Bear, Sweet Dreams Bear, Thanks-A-Lot Bear, Work of Heart Bear
How Many Care Bears?
This is one of those simple and good baby showers games. Put lots of gummy bears in a baby bottle (or big jar). Each guest needs to guess how many Care Bears are in the baby bottle/big jar. The closest one wins the baby bottle/jar with gummy bears!
Care Bear Cloud Scooping
Put a big empty bowl on the table. Spread out lots of cotton balls (clouds) all around the bowl. Each guest is blindfolded and with a spoon needs to scoop cotton balls into the bowl (it’s not as easy as you think, you can hardly feel the weight of the cotton balls!). Whoever gets the most cotton balls into the bowl (within 3 minutes), is the winner.
Care Bear Diaper Race
Here’s another one of these fun and really good baby shower games. You’ll need one large Care Bear stuffed animal, a disposable diaper or cloth diaper and two diaper pins, a pair of mittens, and a stopwatch or timer.
Your guests take turns diapering the stuffed animal Care Bear… but here’s the catch (*drum-roll*): They have to do this while they’re wearing mittens! Once they’re done, one of the judges needs to slightly shake the Care Bear, if the diaper falls off, then that guest is disqualified. The guest with the fastest diapering time wins the game!
Care Bear ‘Water Breaking’ Game
This can be one of those hilariously good baby shower games! You will need to do a few things a day before the party. Take plastic cups, fill with water, and throw into each cup a little gummy bear (if you have big ice-cube trays, you can put water in them and then a gummy bear in each, make sure the gummy bear is completely covered in water). Put all the ice-cube trays or plastic cups on a tray and in the freezer to freeze overnight.
On the day of the party, give each guest a frozen gummy bear cup (or huge frozen ice-cube with gummy bear in it). The person whose water breaks first (melts the ice and “gives birth” to the little colorful bear) is the winner!
Care Bear Multi-Tasking
There is some kind of notion that mommies are capable of handling many things at a time (multi-tasking). This game is for those people who want to give multi-tasking a try! For this game you’ll need a clothesline tied from the two opposite ends (you can also tie a few clotheslines or use a clothes-hanger rack), a basket full of baby clothes, clothespins, a large Care Bear stuffed animal and a cell-phone.
The guest needs to hold the Care Bear on his or her hip while talking on the cell-phone (in a real conversation) and hang the baby clothes on the clothesline (using clothespins) all at the same time (without dropping the Care Bear or the cell phone). They need to be engaging in a REAL conversation. Have someone from another room or a person who isn’t at the party call them on the cell-phone and start a two-way communication with the player.
You can play this as a race, having two people do this at the same time and whoever finishes hanging all the clothes is the winner, or have each guest give a try once and see how many clothes they hang in a 2 or 3-minute time limit while holding the Care Bear and talking on the cell-phone.
Care Bear Memory Game
Hang a clothesline or two with all kinds of baby items pinned on to it (bibs, diapers, onesies, rattles, teethers, bottles, rubber duckies, etc.). Hang lots of Care Bears and Teddy Bears in between all of these baby items, dispersed on the clothesline.
Tell everyone to take a good look at the clothesline and try to remember everything that is on it. Give them half a minute to a minute to try and remember all of the baby items hanging on the clothesline (they’re not allowed to write down anything, only try to sharpen their memory and remember).
Then after a very short time, take the clothesline down and put in another room. Everyone will expect you to ask them ‘what was on the clothesline’, but you will surprise them and ask them “HOW MANY CARE BEARS AND TEDDY BEARS WERE ON THE CLOTHESLINE?”. This will most likely throw them off… but in any case, whoever gets closest to the amount of Bears on the clothesline is the winner!
Rainbow Jell-O Eating Race
Here’s another one of those good baby shower games… You can create little colorful rainbow Jell-O squares. If it’s a couples baby shower, it’s definitely amusing seeing the guys play this game! Give each guest a plate with a piece of rainbow Jell-O. On the mark of ‘GO’ all the guests race to eat the rainbow Jell-O piece while their hands are tied behind their back. The first one to finish the whole rainbow Jell-O piece is the winner!
