Hello my friends 😀 .
On this page you will find instructions and printables for the Name that Candy Bar baby shower game.
(Click the arrow below to play the audio version of this article:)
The dirty diaper game is loads of fun and provokes a lot of laughter. If your guests are playful and have a great sense of humor, they’ll love this game.
But if your guests are a little more traditional, (and a bit uptight) then I suggest picking a different game to play ;-).
Personally, I think this game is hilarious. I admit that it is kind of gross though – 😀 LOL.
You may want to print out the instructions to this game. I’ve put them in PDF format for easy printing.
There’s an answer sheet that goes with it.
They’re both in the table below:
(You’ll need the the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to print these games out. If you don’t already have the reader, it can be downloaded free from this link.)
Other than the diaper game, you might want to plan more entertaining activities so that your guests have plenty to do during the event.
Games are truly a wonderful way to break the ice and get the conversation going at a party. You can find more ideas for baby shower games by clicking here.
1- Separate all of the materials and tools that you will need.
Here’s a list of items:
- Disposable diapers
- A varied amount of candy bars
- A microwave
- A permanent marker
- A table to put the dirty diapers on
- Your answer sheet
- Sheets of paper for your guests to write what they guessed. You can also print out these answer sheets for them.
- Pencils or pens for your guests to write
- A prize for the winner of the game.
2- Write down all of the different candy bars names that you have on a sheet of paper and label them by numbers. Don’t show this sheet of paper to anyone. This will be your main answer sheet.
In case you need ideas on candy bars that you can buy, here are some more:
|*Fast Break Reese’s||*Crunch|
|*Milky Way||*Baby Ruth|
|*Hershey’s Kisses||* Mr. Goodbar|
|*Mars Bars||*Almond Joy|
( *Insider tip: Make sure that you have difficult candy bars so that the game is more interesting. Well known candy bars are easy to guess so I would definitely vary some difficult ones in there. )
3- Now you can open up the candy bar, place it on top of the disposable diaper and heat it in the microwave. Do this for all of the candy bars.
4- After you heat each diaper make sure you get out your permanent maker and label each diaper the number that you have given for each candy bar. Don’t forget to keep track of the list on your main answer sheet. That way you, as the hostess, won’t get confused.
5- After you have all of the diapers ready (with the chocolate melted), lay them out on a table. Now it’s time to let the guessing game begin.
6- Hand out the sheets of paper and pencils so that everyone can write down the candy bar they think is on each diaper. Tell your guests to write their names at the top of each sheet.
7- Pass around each diaper starting with the number one diaper.
Each guest will examine the “dirty diaper” to make their guess. They can smell or even taste the diaper contents.
8- After they have examined each diaper they can write their idea down on the sheet of paper they have or on the answer sheet that you previously printed out.
9- After all of the diapers have been passed around and everyone has written their answers, have them trade with their neighbor so that their answers can be scored.
10- Now you can grade the answer sheet and tell everyone the right answers. The person with the most amount of right answers wins the game.
Make the prize for the winner something funny too.
Another fun variation of this game is to have guests receive tiny diapers when they arrive at the party.
They can pin them on their clothes :).
Then when it’s game time, the hostess will ask everyone to open up their diaper.
The person that got the “dirty diaper” wins the prize. You can get these diapers ready made by clicking on this link.
The poopy diaper game can last from 30 to 45 minutes depending on how many people play it. I suggest planning a variety of party activities so that everyone can leave the party having had a great time.

Here’s a video of a mom that played this game with her family. So even if you aren’t throwing a baby shower you can still play this game with your kids for some quality bonding time.
