How to Host a Fun Diaper Raffle

Are you planning a baby shower and want to include a fun and useful activity for the parents-to-be? A diaper raffle can be the perfect option. In addition to being entertaining, this game will also help the parents build up their diaper stash with all the diapers they receive. Keep reading to find out how you can easily host a diaper raffle for your upcoming baby shower.

What Is a Diaper Raffle?

A diaper raffle is a game that is usually played at baby showers, where guests are asked to bring packs of diapers (and wipes, if they wish) in exchange for a raffle ticket. These tickets are then entered into a draw for a prize. The more packages of diapers a guest brings, the more chances they have to win!

How Does a Diaper Raffle Work?

To host a diaper raffle, you’ll first need to decide on the type of prizes you want to offer and how many winners there will be. You can choose one main prize or multiple smaller ones. Once that is decided, you can include a diaper raffle insert in your baby shower invitations to let guests know about the game and what they need to do to participate. When the guests arrive at the baby shower, they will bring their packs of diapers and receive their raffle tickets.

If you want an alternative to gifting actual packs of diapers, you might enjoy incorporating Pampers Diaper Stash into the mix. Instead of the guests bringing diapers to the shower for an entry into the diaper raffle, you can create an online Diaper Stash account and loved ones can contribute to the fund. With Diaper Stash you don’t have to worry about being gifted too many of the wrong size or wrong brand of diaper. For the diaper raffle, you can give guests a raffle ticket for each contribution they gift to your fund.

Speaking of Diaper Stash, it’s also a great option if you’re hosting a virtual baby shower or a smaller celebration like a baby sprinkle. Loved ones can easily contribute to the fund using the Diaper Stash link you’ve created, making it a convenient and virtual gift for new parents.

Diaper Raffle Instructions

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to set up a diaper raffle and play the game:

1. Decide on the prizes and how many winners there will be.
2. Include information about the diaper raffle in your baby shower invitations, or if you’re using Pampers Diaper Stash, share the link on the invitation or set up a tablet/smartphone station at the baby shower for guests to contribute.
3. Get enough raffle tickets for the number of guests attending.
4. On the day of the baby shower, have a designated area where guests can drop off their diapers (or make their contribution) and receive their raffle tickets.
5. During or at the end of the baby shower, draw the winning ticket(s) for the diaper raffle and announce the winner(s)!

Diaper Raffle Tickets

You can either purchase pre-made raffle tickets or make your own using colorful paper and markers. If you choose to make your own, be sure to include a space for guests to write their names. You can also add some fun designs or baby-related images to make them more festive.

Diaper Raffle Prizes

Once you’ve decided how many prizes you’d like to give out and whether you’d like to categorize the prizes with a first, second, third place, etc., then it’s time to purchase some items. They don't have to be extravagant. Some diaper raffle prize ideas could be gift cards, candles, lotions, or a hamper of tasty treats.
