Occasionally baby showers are hosted before the baby is born and occasionally after. Either way most baby showers have at least one thing in common, baby shower games.
When you host a baby shower, it is enjoyable to have games to play as entertainment and also to break the ice. You may have guests that do not know one another as well as a number of different age generations in attendance.
I like to have different types of games when I host a baby shower so the same guest is not always the winner. I also like to find games which require little preparation or expense. Listed below are a few free baby shower games you’re free to use when you plan or host a baby shower.
1. One game you may want to play is to see who can name the most nursery rhymes. Give your guests a couple of minutes to write them down and find out who thought of the most. Beforehand, you are able to prepare a list to compare to if you would like. Plus if your baby shower guests appear stumped, you can name a couple of to get them started on the right track.
2. A word scramble is also a great kind of game to have. You can scramble up some baby words and print them out on a piece of paper and let the guest unscramble them. You can also give your baby shower guests a blank sheet of paper and have them write a phrase such as Jill’s new baby, or the new baby’s full name and have them see how many words they can find in the letters.
3. If you wish to liven things up a bit, give every guest a piece of paper with a baby related word on it and tell them not to show it to anyone. When everyone has arrived explain to them that every time they hear their word they should cough and say excuse me within 5 seconds. The other guests then can each make one guess as to the word. You can give prizes to whoever guesses the most right and also to whoever stumps the other shower guests the longest.
Basically just try to find a variety of baby shower games that everybody will delight in playing and have a great time celebrating the blessing of a new baby.
