baby boy 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.

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:

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.

Step by Step: How to Prepare for and Play this Game

1- Separate all of the materials and tools that you will need.
Here’s a list of items:

    baby girl sitting

  • Disposable diapers

  • A varied amount of candy bars

  • A microwave

  • A permanent marker

  • A table to put the dirty diapers on

  • baby girl crawling

  • 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
*Butterfinger *3 Musketeers
*Milky Way *Baby Ruth
*Hershey’s Kisses * Mr. Goodbar
*Rocky Road *Snickers
*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. )

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.

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.

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.

plan ahead for loads of fun

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.

    I have a question re: candy bar dirty diaper baby shower game: Do you give the players the list or names of candy bars being used?

  5. Eren Mckay  

    Hi Claudet,
    It depends… If your guests are very knowledgeable about candy bars then I wouldn’t give them a list. However if you think they’ll have a hard time figuring things out, then by all means give them a list to help them out.
    Here’s a subdriectory with a whole bunch of articles about baby showers that might help you out when you’re planning the party:
