Baby Shower Games
As I look at the cute little construction paper cut out of a lady bug hanging on my refrigerator. It dawned on me that I had a Baby Shower to go to next weekend. I tried to sit back and think of when my kiddos were little. I only remember having one shower out of the 3 babies. But I have been to a few of them. You need to take in consideration of your guests that are coming. There are the Game players, or there are those who would rather just sit back in the corner and watch. Me being an extrovert, well you can guess what type of game player I would be. If your guests, and of course , mommy to be are a little more Game Friendly, here is a list of a few I found on this amazing Evite website called The PurpleTrail
Name That Nursery Rhyme This is great especially when the New Addition may be having their rooms decorated with Nursery Rhymes.
Help to get the new parents to be up to speed with their nursery rhymes before the baby arrives! This game is a hit for people of all ages. We all remember nursery rhymes from our childhood…but just how well to we remember them? Everyone will enjoy the trip down memory lane that this game provides.

Mom Lib – These are always a blast to do. (You might want to add a small reference key if there is a chance your guests don’t know what for instance adverb, adjective, etc.. is. This can save some emberassment later)
Here’s a great little Mad Lib story about Mom-to-be’s Baby Shower day! Break the guests up into teams and have each team create their own unique Mad Lib and watch the fun begin. Optional ending game included for Mom’s who are adopting. Give each team a work sheet to fill in the word description, without looking at the story. Then the team fills in the story using those same words; and they get a chance to read their crazy creation! Visit babyshowergamesatoz.com for a printable version of this game.
Baby Pictionary You can modify the rules of this game to fit many different ideas, keep in mind if there is a Theme to the Party.
This game is based upon the original Pictionary board game. Before the shower, place words relating to baby activities and items on small cards. (eg: Changing a diaper, giving birth, feeding time) At the shower, create teams and give each one a pad of paper and pencil. Let one member of the team see a card, then tell then to draw the word or phrase for their partners to guess. Use a timer or just play until someone guesses. When the time is up, the teams total up the number of words they have guessed correctly and the one who has the most wins a prize.
Who Am I? Baby Shower Survey If everyone knows the Mommy and her Family really well, someone could even fill it out for the “Baby Daddy” or Siblings.
How well do you really know each other? Take this secret survey and have the Mom-to-be read the answers as the guests try to figure out Who’s Who! A great ice-breaker, even for groups who think they know everything about each other! Check out the printable version at babyshowergamesatoz.com.
Baby’s Beautiful Reflection
Is Baby going to be a “chip off the old block,” or a “beautiful reflection” of Mom? Let the laughter roar as guests try to decide which skill or trait Mom and Dad will say they want baby to inherit from them. Great game to play individually or at a couple’s shower. How to Play: Looking at a list of traits, players mark an X for either Mom or Dad – depending on whom they think Mom wants baby to inherit that trait from. At the same time, Mom is marking her answer sheet with whom she wants baby to inherit that trait from. For a couples shower, split the men into a different group and let Dad mark his answer sheet separately. babyshowergamesatoz.com
Complete the Book Title: Dr. Seuss Books
This is a great game to play at a baby shower. Everyone will love reminising about their favorite Dr. Seuss book, and the Mommy-to-be will get to hear all about the books she will soon be reading! There are so many great book titles – how many will you be able to complete? Visit the PurpleTrail printable games store to download this game.
