Memory Game

Let's see which guest has the best memory. Fill a tray with small gifts for the new baby. Give each player a piece of paper and pen. Walk around with the tray, showing each guest what it is filled with. Once each guest has had the opportunity to study the tray, have everyone flip their paper over and write down as many items as they can remember. Guest with the most items wins.

Baby Blanket Bingo

A fresh take on a classic game that everyone loves. Hand out a blank bingo card to each guest. Have them write in each space an item that they think the mom-to-be might receive at the shower. As the guest of honor opens her gifts, players mark off items on their card. First guest to get five in a row, wins.

Don't Say Baby

Everyone loves this game! As each guest arrives, have them clip one clothespin on her clothing somewhere. The name of the game is not to say the word, "baby". If someone says "baby", you can take her clip. The guest with the most clips at the end of the shower, wins. Dress up the clips with glitter and ribbon. Download the instruction cards for the black and white games.

Word Challenge

Print a banner that spells out the baby's name, congratulations or other sentiment. Hang up the banner seated guests can see it. Give each guest a piece of paper and pen to write down as many words as they can using only the letters used for the banner. Give them two minutes to make their list. The guest with the most words wins. Download the blue alphabet banner, download the green alphabet banner or download the pink alphabet banner.

Baby Words
