We have some easy baby shower games for you. When you host a shower, you don’t want the party to get dull for a moment, right? But if you’re choosing challenging games then you might find that going over the rules takes a lot of time ad bores your guests. That's why you need some fun and simple games that can be quickly played and enjoyed by everyone.
If you want to find easy baby shower games that your guests will enjoy, you should start with word puzzles. These are the most basic types of shower games and most guests will understand the rules as soon as you give them the game sheet. For example, you could choose Baby Word Finds. Three difficulty levels are available for the game so you can decide how much to challenge the guests as they search for baby-related words in a mass of letters. Thankfully, you will receive the answer key.
Another option along the same lines you could choose the Baby Word Scramble. With this game, guests don’t search for the words they try to figure out what the words are by looking at the rearranged letters of the word.
Again, the game comes in three different difficulty levels so you can decide on the appropriate level of challenge. Don’t worry you’ll have the answer keys for these games as well.
While not the same as the word find or the word scramble, Baby Bingo also involves words. Because bingo is definitely the best game for everyone, you should consider using it if you’ll have diverse age groups at your party. Each guest receives a bingo card filled with baby-related words. The host can personalize the possible word list, too. Either the host or the guest of honor shouts out words. Guests mark those words until someone gets a bingo. The advantage to this game is that you can play multiple times if you’ve brought prizes for multiple winners.
Other example: Let guests help out the new parents in some way. The most obvious example is the New Baby Advice game. With this, the host can print out the blank cards with four different design options. Then each guest completes the card by adding their own words of wisdom, such as “Read a book to the baby every night.” While not technically a game, you could add modifications. For example, the mom-to-be might have to guess which guest gave each piece of advice.
For a more unusual take on these types of easy baby shower games, you could try A to Z Baby Names. With this game, you can have your guests work alone, in pairs, or in small groups. You can also choose to have the guests work on girls or boys names, depending on the sex of the baby.
If the gender isn’t known, the gender-neutral sheets can be used for the game. During the game, guests compete to write down a baby name for every letter of the alphabet before any of the other guests can do the same. The game can help new parents who haven’t decided on a name yet.
While not necessarily, memory games are usually fairly easy to introduce and explain. In the case of And Mommy Wore, the game doesn’t even require much set-up.
When the mom-to-be arrives, take her aside and complete the answer key for this game based on what she is wearing at the moment. Then at some point later in the party, send her out of the room and have guests complete the questions on their game sheet, such as “What color was her shirt?” The most right answers wins.
By choosing easy baby shower games, you alleviate some of the challenges of having to explain complicated rules and you’re less likely to deal with guests who are reluctant to participate. That means the shower is more likely to be a huge success.
