If you’re planning a baby shower, you know that games are a crucial element to the party. If you’ve been to a baby shower, you know that cheesy games are the absolute worst. The whole point of having games there is to get people talking, and liven the mood — and nothing kills the mood like a cringe-worthy activity.

Fun Games to Play

We’ve seen and played a lot of games out there and, honestly, we weren’t loving them. So, we decided to make our own set of free baby shower games that give this tradition a unique, modern twist and, most importantly, are actually fun to play.

Printable Baby Shower Games

Check out each game below. You can pick and choose, have different games at different tables or just play them all. Since we know there’s no one-size-fits all baby shower these days we designed each game to fit any theme: boy, girl, gender neutral and even co-ed baby showers. We hope you 💖 them as much as we do!

  2. Place one packet at each table and ask your guests to designate 1 host and 1-4 contestants per table.
  3. When a contestant chooses a category and number, the host should lift the top page and read the corresponding clue on page 2.

  2. Put fold each square so you can’t see what is written on it.
  3. Place the squares into a bowl.
  4. Divide all players into two teams.
  5. Each player should take a square from the bowl, read what’s on it, but not show it to anyone else.
  6. When it comes time to play, each player should act out what’s on their square without speaking. The point is to get your team to guess what was written on your square. (Mouthing of the words for lipreading, spelling, and pointing are against the rules!) Each player has 2 minutes to act.
  7. Use a notepad to tally the teams’ points: one for every correctly guessed answer and one for every answer the opposing team failed to guess within the allotted time.
  8. Play until each player has acted. At the end the team with the most points wins.
