Pin The Rocket To Moon

A variation of the beloved party game “Pin The Tail On The Donkey” that would be perfect for the moon and stars baby shower is to use rockets instead of the tail and a moon cutout than a donkey. Blindfold guests and have them try to pin the rocket to the moon.

What’s fantastic with baby shower games like these is you can DIY the props. There are many rocket and moon designs you can use as ideas for making the game props. 


Star Toss

Not having a tossing baby shower game would make any outdoor party incomplete. And for the moon and star theme, you can hand guests throwing stars they’ll toss and try to land on a marker. 

You can even make a variation to this game by making a labeled floor game board. If the guest lands their throwing star on a grid, it’s equivalent to a point or prize.
