There are so many options out there, you could spend hours looking for one to match the theme of the baby shower. However, if you want your guests to have fun and not feel overwhelmed, consider using a few of the available 31 Free Printable Baby Shower Games.
Word Search – If you think it requires more than just the words “word” and “game”, you probably don’t know what it is. This fun printable game comes in three parts. First, guests are given a dictionary. They are then instructed to search for the word that contains one of the answers printed on the board, such as “be”, “have” or “is”.
Second, they have to say the word and then find the answer written on the board. The person who finds the most correctly wins. There are no wrong answers, so you may have to take some people on at a time. That way they all have fun and are awarded prizes too!
Hide And Seek – What boy wouldn’t love this fun baby shower games? Two teams are made up and each has someone designated as “ooter.” They then have to seek out a clue in a jar or box. Each team doesn’t have to know the other’s name, but it helps to ensure there are no misunderstandings.
Pictionary – What child doesn’t love to pick out pictures and writing them down? This is a great game to play because each player gets to name their favorite picture. If no one knows the picture, the last name will be “arded.” The first person to find the correct picture wins.
Freeze Tag – This is another fun game that is perfect for baby showers. Two teams are made up and they take turns being “zers” and “zaps.” The “zer” that is not tagged during his turn will get a paint-job and a “zap.” The last person to get three “zaps” wins.
Treasure hunt – Most of these are variations of the hidden treasure games that we played as children. However, sometimes a game designer can add a twist that kids love. Two groups of people are set up and they have different categories. A baby is placed in each category. Then the players have to find the baby and take it from one group to the other. They do this by clicking on the appropriate icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
These are just a few examples of what you can use for your baby shower games. You can easily search for free printable baby shower games online or you can purchase games at your local store or online. Some of the games are available for free, but others may cost you a small amount. It all depends on the games you are looking for and what you are wanting to accomplish with them.
Some of these games are offered as downloads, which you can print right at home. Then when you want to play, all you need to do is turn on your computer and you are ready to go. However, if you would prefer to play them using an actual baby or even a doll, then you will be glad to know that you can find those too. Usually you will have to pay a small fee to download them.
The winners of the games get a prize, and depending on the specific game, they might be able to keep the gift or give it to someone else as a great present. All the baby winnings go to the mom-to-be as well as the guest that wins the game. So don’t be discouraged if you are not the highest ranked player. Just keep trying until you can become the highest ranked mom! You can also win prizes when playing the “pin the belly on the animal” baby game or the “belly of the bird” game.
There are a lot of fun things that you can do at your party to help baby feel relaxed and content during the pregnancy. For example, setting up a fun tree house for baby to play in is a wonderful idea. It will give him a nice place to sleep in a soft dark room without the bright lights. Also, it is fun to decorate the tree house with different decorations. Set it up with a sleeping bag, a special toy for baby, and maybe even some tasty treats to make it more exciting!
Another fun activity is the “pass out the dough”. All the guests are given a large piece of dough. They are going to pass it out to each other so that someone can make a hole in it. The hole they make should be smaller than the size of an eraser. When someone makes a hole, they have to replace it with a small ball of dough. Whoever gets the biggest ball wins the game!
