Baby Shower Games Printables
I have five kids. With my five kids, I only had two baby showers. Additionally, I have not attended a baby shower in years. Well, that isn’t true. I went to one about two years ago, and I was out out of place because it has been so long. So research had to be done to find you all the best.
In my discovery for this post, this is what I learned. The internet does not lack baby shower games. You guys, there are 100s. Additionally, each game has about a dozen versions and is found on about another 1,000 blogs. So I did my good duty for you all and put together the best baby shower games that won’t throw you into an instant snooze. If I found the game multiple places, I found what I thought was the best version. Additionally, all these games offer printables. Free printables. You’re welcome (wink!)… and congrats to the happy parents!
Take a look! We have more Tips for Throwing a Baby Shower including recipes and more baby game ideas. Also, these Baby Milestone Monthly Printables are adorable for photographing a baby’s age. Download this freebie for yourself or print as a shower gift with an 8×10 frame.

Mystery Baby Bags
Put 10 baby items into small paper bags and staple them closed. Number each bag from 1 to 10. Give each guest a sheet of paper and a pencil. Pass the bags out. Without opening the bag, the guests try to figure out what baby item is inside. Once everyone has made a guess for each bag, the mom-to-be opens the bags and reveals what is inside. The person who guesses the most mystery baby items wins.
Name That Baby Tune
Make a playlist of songs with the word “baby” in them. Give each guest a piece of paper and a pencil. Play one song at a time for 30 seconds. Have everyone write down the name of the song (or the next line of the song). The person with the most correct wins.
Baby Animal Game
Give each guest a paper with a list of animals. Set a timer and have them write the names of the animals’ babies next to the parent. You can also have the baby animals’ names on the top of the page and have them guess which animal belongs to which. Some ideas: wombat/joey, turtle/hatchling, swan/cygnet, skunk/kit, rabbit/bunny, porpoise/calf, porcupine/porcupette, penguin/chick, otter/whelp, moose/calf, monkey/infant.
The Baby Name Game
Give each guest a paper and pencil. Write the initials of the expectant parents on each piece of paper. Set a timer for 4-5 minutes and have the guests write as many baby names they can think of for each initial. The person who comes up with the most names total wins.
Over/Under Baby Shower Game
Find out facts about the parents-to-be that involve numbers. For example, how many kids do they want to have? How many siblings does dad have? How many broken bones has mom had? How many names are they choosing from for the baby? Then make up a number either over, under or right on for each question. Write out the facts with the numbers you assigned and have each guest write Over, Under or Right On for each fact. For example, “Jack and Diane want 3 kids.” (The real answer is 2…so anyone who guesses Under gets that answer correct).
Diaper Bag Detective
Choose 10-12 items that you might find in a diaper bag (throw in a few funny things). Put the items on a table or tray and cover them with a baby blanket or tablecloth. Give each guest a piece of paper with numbers 1-12 written down the side and something to write with. Set a timer for 1 minute. Uncover the tray and let the guests look (without writing) and try to memorize what’s “in the diaper bag.” After the timer goes off, recover the items. Each person tries to remember and write down as many items as possible. The person who remembers the most items correctly wins.
Baby Shower Party Games Printables
Baby Shower Taboo from Fun Squared. Divide the guests into two teams and have someone draw a card. She needs to get her team to say the word at the top of the card, but she can’t say the 5 words below it as she describes.
Words for the Wee Hours from Happy Home Fairy. I was so happy to stumble upon this printable. Julie is a friend of mine for 20 years (where does time go) and she has some amazing printables. Print these Words for the Wee Hours. Challenge shower guests to make their own, but you can display yours on a clothes line with clothes pins. Vote on the funniest sayings or the phrases that make mom laugh the most. Now I am dying for a friend to have a baby so I can gift these messages.
Name that Baby from DIY Network and TomKat Studio. Have each guest bring a baby photo of themselves. Post the photos on a board along with a printed number. Throughout the shower, guests can study the board and take a guess at who is in each photo. Guest with the most correct guesses wins. Up to 12 guests.
The Price is Right from Tula Mama. Set up a table with the items listed on this sheet. Have guests fill out their card with their best guesses for the price of each item. The person with the closest price of each item scores one point. The guest with the most points wins a prize.
He Said, She Said from Unoriginal Mom. Just like the bridal shower game, is this fact about mommy or daddy. Pick up the free printable lips and mustache as well as the header for the game. But personalize for yourself in a Word Document.
How Sweet It Is from Lil Luna. Fill out the matching pregnancy term to the candy bar. For example, girls name would be Baby Ruth. Have a basket of candy bars mentioned in the game. Most likely, everyone will have these answers right, so give he bar to who shares the answer with the group when going over results.
Baby ABCs from PJs and Paint. Ready, set, go. You are timed trying find a baby related item that begins with each letter. If there are repeat letters (like two people choose diapers for D) a point is not awarded. Person with the most points at the end wins. Make sure your words are unique and baby related!
What’s in your Phone from Inspiration Made Simple. It’s basically the same concept of “What’s in your Purse?” but baby shower edition. Each participant earns points for the item that they have in their phone. Things like having the Pinterest app or having the baby shower in your calendar.
Pass the Prize from Tula Mama. Similar to pass the present, start the game off with one person. Normally the baby’s mama! Mama has to pass the gift off to someone who matches the description in the line of the poem. Keep passing the gift with each line of the poem until the final line of the poem is read.
Celebrity Baby Names from For the Love of George. See who knows US Weekly best with this parents to celebrity baby name match.
Children’s Book Emoji Pictionary from Sugar and Soul. Ooohh, this one is a challenge. Identify the children’s book from the emoji given. Person with the most number of books right at the end, wins.
What’s In Your Purse from Inspiration Made Simple. Similar to what’s in your phone game, gain points for the odd things you might find in your bag… Granola bar? Hammer? Photo of the kids?
Baby Jeopardy from Tula Mama. I will take “Nursery Rhymes for 300, Alex!” Play everyone’s favorite television game, the game of Jeopardy with all things fitting for a baby!
Name that Tune from Play, Party, Plan. Download this list of 50 songs with the word baby in the title ranging from Justin Bieber to The Beatles. See who gets the most songs right, first.
Name that Artist from Play, Party Plan. Contrary, as if at a poetry reading, read the lyrics to songs and see how many people can guess the artist. “They say were young and we don’t know, we won’t find out until we grow…” – Name that artist!
Match the Baby and Mama from Hey, Let’s Make Stuff. Match the mama to her baby! This animal mother and baby matching game is both challenging and fun.
How Long is Each Animal Pregnant from Paper Trail Design. Guess the gestation period for each animal; a fun baby shower game that is easy to pull of and isn’t overly annoying.
Baby Scavenger Hunt from Plan the Perfect Baby Shower. Riddles and rhymes, the race is on to score the prize! Follow these baby related clues in this baby shower game.
Baby Trait from Sugar and Charm. What will baby look like? Will his/her eyes resemble mom or dad? How about their hair color. Everyone shares their guess and at the end the mother to be shares hers. Whoever matches with the mom most, wins!
Wishes for Baby from Lauren Makes. Maybe not a game but a very good way to send off the baby and mother to be. These wishes for baby can be laminated and binded for the parents and child to keep forever! If laminating, print on cardstock.
