Baby Photo Match-Up

Although this game will take a bit of effort and time to prepare for,  it will be a for-sure hit at your baby shower. Get in touch with your guests ahead of time, and ask them if you can make a copy of their cutest baby photo (or a photo of them when they were kids) as well as one of their adult photos.  After you’ve collected a photo from almost all of your guests, organize the photos on a sheet of paper. Ask your guests to match the adult photos to the baby photos. Whoever matches the most correctly wins.

Easy Baby Shower Games

What’s Mom Craving?

Although you’ll need to work with the mom of honor ahead of time on this one — it is probably the easiest game to do on the list. Have the mom of honor come up with a list of food she’s found herself craving. Have her describe the food to the guests. Guests can call out what they think the food is. Whoever answers the most questions correct wins. (For example, if mom is craving pickles, she would say she’s craving something crunchy, salty, green, and tangy. And, she would keep going until someone guesses correctly.)

Popularity Contest

Take a look at the Social Security Administration lists of the most popular baby names by decade. Pass out a sheet of paper to your guests that has four columns: 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, and 2000’s. You can go further and divide the columns up into boy and girl names. Have your guests fill in each column with 10 names that they think were the most popular during those decades. Whoever gets the most names right is the winner.

Names In Music

If the mom and dad of honor are big music fans, and so are the baby shower guests, then this game will work very well for your celebration. Thousands of pop songs have names in their titles. Pick out your favorite ones. Burn them onto a CD or write down a few sentences of each song.

Ask your guests to guess the name of the song (or the name mentioned in the song) either based on the lyrics you’ve given them, or play them a brief segment of the song. Here are a few suggestions you can use for inspiration.

To make things more interesting, you can give players extra points for getting the song title, artist, and name mentioned in the song correctly. Also, the same thing can be done with songs that have “baby” in there title.

1. Oh, ______…. Oh, ______…. Oh, _______… Oh, ________. I had a girl ______ was her name. Since she left me, I’ve never been the same. ‘Cause I love my girl _______, where can you be?

2. This is about a boy who grows up angry at his father not only for leaving his family, but for naming him ______. When the boy grows up, he sees his father in a bar and gets in a fight with him. After his father explains that he named him ____ to make sure he was tough, the son understands. (Johnny Cash)

3. You know, I wish that I had _______ girl. I wish that I had ________ girl. Where can I find a woman like that?

4. Hands, touchin’ hands. Reachin’ out, touchin’ me, touchin’ you. Sweet ________…Good times never seemed so good. I’ve been inclined to believe they never would. But now I…

5. Cellophane flowers of yellow and green towering over your head. Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes, and she’s gone. _______ in the sky with diamonds!
