Not all baby shower activities are fun. Guessing the size of the mom-to-be’s belly can be embarrassing for her and awkward for everyone else. Any of several games that involve adults eating baby food are terrible for everyone involved. And let’s not get started on the melted candy bar in a diaper.
Fortunately, we’re here to provide you with some baby shower activity printables that are actually fun, and offer support to the new parents at the same time! After all, that’s what baby showers are supposed to be all about, right?
Once you download these printables, just print out a copy for each guest, and let the games begin!
Baby Predictions and Parenting Advice
This page gives guests the opportunity to make predictions about the coming baby, including the date and time of birth, the baby’s weight, and more! What fun to find out how close your predictions were after the baby is born.
The bottom of the page has several lines where guests can offer any advice they have for the new parents. Since baby showers are often (but not always!) reserved for a first child, these new parents will certainly appreciate any advice they can get! Raising a baby is difficult work, and community support is important. Why not start that support before the baby is born?

Baby Animal Match Up
The only thing as cute as babies are baby animals! This is a fun game that even kids (if you have children as guests at your shower) can participate in! All you have to do is match up the animal with their baby! If you want to spice things up, you could run this game as a timed activity, making the one who finishes first the winner!

Baby Gift Bingo
This page contains a bingo grid! The great part is, you get to fill it in! Fill in the squares with gifts that you think the mother-to-be will receive at her shower, and then mark them off as she opens her presents! First to get a row and shout “bingo!” wins! You could also play a blackout round! It’s bingo and a guessing game in one!
This activity is the perfect way to prevent the gift opening portion of the baby shower from dragging on; it makes it a kind of group activity by engaging your guests!

Who Knows Mom-to-Be Best?
This page has a list of questions about the mom-to-be. Guests fill them out, and whoever gets the most right wins! You might be surprised at what you don’t know about her.
This is a fun way to focus on the mother-to-be without making her feel too awkward about it; in fact, guests can fill this out on their own time throughout the shower instead of having a specific time to do it while the mom-to-be waits awkwardly for the activity to be over.

Home Scavenger Hunt
This page includes a list of household items, each with a value in points. It’s a scavenger hunt! Guests simply look around the house for the things on the list; once they find them, they can check them off! After the hunt is over, they tally up the points and whoever has the most points wins! Keep in mind, the items that give more points are harder to find!
This activity is perfect for online baby showers, where guests can search their own homes for the objects!
Bud Bunny Collection Theme Example
