How To Throw The Best Ever Gender-Neutral Baby Shower

Does the thought of choosing between blue or pink decor for your future baby shower bore you to tears? If so, we totally understand! Long gone are the days where pink and blue were the only color options. 

Not that there’s anything wrong with either color, of course, but those traditional color schemes are a bit dated and don’t cover the full range of options for modern showers

Your child could grow up to become a boy, girl, or other nonbinary identity that doesn’t wear pink or blue! Or, maybe you just like to think outside of the box and want to try something new. If you can relate to either problem, it sounds like a gender-neutral baby shower might be for you. 

Why You Should Have A Gender-Neutral Shower

Gender-neutral baby showers serve different purposes for different families. Some parents don’t want to force traditional gender identitynorms on their kids. That is, as a boy or a girl. They want their kids to develop into whichever gender identity fits them when they’re older.

A little Surprise…

Some parents may also raise their child traditionally, but want to be surprised when the baby is actually born. So, they go gender-neutral so as to not spoil the surprise. Then there are those parents that just don’t want to get a bunch of traditional baby gifts, so they opt for unisex colors. Your reasons for going this route are your own, but worry not, gender-neutral is totally possible to pull off!

How To Have A Gender-Neutral Baby Shower

Good news! There’s barely any extra work involved in planning a gender-neutral baby shower than it is to have a traditional one. 

It’s Easy

It really just comes down to specifying your theme to your guests, so they can send the appropriate gifts and modify your games a bit. The best part is that gender-neutral showers work well with either physical or virtual showers, but for the purpose of this article, we will, of course, focus on virtual showers. 

Go Virtual

By now, you should know that virtual baby showers are a sitch to pull off! And oh, so fun! Especially if you take advantage of WebBabyShower’s services, which are incredibly affordable and makes planning super easy. 

Whether or not you know the baby’s gender, or have plans to abide by traditional gender norms at all, WebBabyShower has fun, adorable themes available on the gallery page. There’s truly something there for everyone!

Plan a Covid-Proof Shower

As Covid-19 continues to thwart plans of parties and get-togethers of all kinds, rest assured that a virtual baby shower completely Covid-proof! There’s absolutely zero risk of disease transmission when you host your party over the internet– especially with WebBabyShower! 

Zero Risk, Zero Frustration

Why? Because WebBabyShower makes the process so foolproof, there’s a very small chance that you’ll get frustrated and throw a traditional shower. From themes to invitations, to games, we have everything you need to throw the perfect shower that will be remembered for years and years to come. 

How To Have Your Own

At the end of the day, the kind of baby shower you throw your baby depends on your personal values. No one choice is better than the other, it all comes down to what is best for your growing family.p>

But if you are going to throw a unisex baby shower (or any shower for that matter), then utilizing WebBabyShower’s virtual services is the only logical way to go!

Now The Fun Begins 

The best parties are well-thought-out and planned down to the T. While the outcome is always worth it, the effort can leave you burnt out. But that’s not a problem with WebBabyShower. 

The pre-made templates and tools require such little effort, planning yourgender-neutral baby shower can actually be fun! 

First Things First — The Theme

Unisex doesn’t equal themeless; in fact, going genderless offers up even more possibilities to get creative. Instead of being confined to things like pink flowers for girls or blue bottles for boys, the entire rainbow can be utilized and paired with virtually anything related to babies. 

But before you wrack your brain trying to come up with colors and objects, know that many of WebBabyShower’s pre-made templates and themes come gender-neutral already. For example, you can choose from colorful baby blocks, cuddly baby bunnies, or even adorable storks! And that’s just to name a few. You can offset these themes with cute phrases like “What Will It Bee”, “Mint To Be,” or, “Our Pup.”

All The Colors Of The Rainbow

Next up, it’s time to pick which color (or colors) will best suit your theme. Yellow is, by far, the most popular gender-neutral color according to Hello Motherhood And with good reason! There’s just something about it that makes you happy and want to smile. Just like the sight of a new baby!

So Many Choices…

Other colors that pair well with a unisex theme are grays, whites, tans, greens, oranges, and purples! Of course, if you’re throwing the rule book out of the window, no one will mind if you sneak in a bit of pink or blue. Or both! We won’t tell, we promise! 

The Invitations 

Now that you’ve gotten the basic details out of the way, let’s talk about invitations. We mean, there’s no point in having a baby shower if no one knows about it. So, invites are a must-have! 

WebBabyShower zebra you are invited

With invites, you can choose to create your own electronic invitations or maybe, if you want your guests to have physical keepsakes, you could send them in the mail. But if you choose to utilize electronic invites, WebBabyShower, of course, has that covered as well! You can learn all about how to send invitationshere, which are included in WebBabyShower’s packages.

What Guests Should Buy For A Gender-Neutral Shower

Okay, so here’s the tricky part. You might have pulled off everything on your end, but will your guests be able to adhere to your gender-neutral theme? The answer is yes, of course, but only if you express to them that you don’t want gendered items. 

It can be hard to resist the adorable themed items in baby stores, for boys and girls, and some guests might not mean any harm but will still buy what they want the baby to have. Rather than what you want your own child to have. 

(There are also those guests who can’t let go of tradition and will defy on purpose.)

If you want to skip this headache, it might be best for you to sign up for a registry. This way, you can lay out exactly what you need and want for the baby. And each guest has the option to buy or not buy you and item or two from your list. WebBabyShower has a gift registry page that includes all of your favorite stores so your guests can be sent directly to your registry right from your shower page.

If you don’t want to go the registry route, you can help your guests by reminding them that there are many items that both boy and girl babies will need. Think bottles, diapers, wipes, and pacifiers. Even if multiple people buy the same items, you can never have too many baby supplies. So it’s a win/win!

Capture The Memories

The memories of your baby shower will last a lifetime, but there’s nothing like having physical evidence of the festivities! (Especially when you want to take a trip down memory lane once your little one is all grown up!). You could always keep a pregnancy journal too to keep all the memories in one place.

If you choose WebBabyShower you can take as many photos of your pregnancy journey and shower as you like and upload them to your photo album page, which you and your guests can access. You can also add pictures of your sonograms, and growing baby bump, too!

Communicate Your Needs

For a virtual shower, it’s probably easier to take the photos yourself. But if you do have a traditional shower down the line, you should make sure the photographer is knowledgeable about gender neutrality. That’ll cut down on confusion and creative differences once the big day comes. 

Games! 

Planning the games portion of the shower should be especially easy. Baby shower games are largely gender-neutral by nature. That goes for virtual and traditional showers. 

There are a ton of baby shower trivia, fact, and other kinds of games out there that can apply to boys and girls. You just have to sit down and figure out exactly what kind of games you want to have. 

WebBabyShower also has plenty of games your guests can partake in on your shower site.

What About Decorations? 

For virtual showers, some people skip over putting up too many decorations, which may not translate well over a video call or photos. But that doesn’t mean that you have too! If it’s in your heart to decorate, then you definitely should! 

After all, this baby shower is a celebration and a little pizazz never hurt anyone! If you do decide to decorate, though, don’t go too crazy. Your guests won’t really experience the full effects of the decor, which can be costly.

Get a little thrifty and see if your friends have any old decor you can reuse. Things like banners and signs hold up well over the years. For things like streamers and other paper decor, the dollar store is a great place to look.

Can You Have A Cake At A Gender-Neutral Baby Shower?

Ahh, the cake. The sweet, colorful, delicious cake. Does it have a place in a virtual baby shower? Yes, if the host sees fit!  You see, cakes don’t just serve as yummy dessert for the guests (though how great is that?), they also serve as gender reveals! 

But since the guests won’t actually be in attendance, and we’re doing a gender-neutral shower, what does that mean? Nothing at all! The mom-to-be and those in her household can still cut a cake just for the sake of tradition. 

Let Them Eat Cake

And if there’s time or desire, the parents can also cut and deliver slices of cake to the guests who live nearby.

Don’t Forget To Have Fun!

Fun–that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Having one last hoo-rah in your baby’s honor of course, before your life is consumed by diapers and baby bottles. (Oh, and getting gifts to offset the cost of raising said baby.) Because let’s be real: the baby shower is all about the parents! 

Whatever kind of shower you decide to have, don’t allow the stress of planning it to counteract the joy you should get from it. Virtual, traditional, adoption or gender-neutral, your baby shower should feel your heart with joy and laughter.

Make things a little easier by utilizing WebBabyShower’s services. From the themes to the invitations, to the photo album, it has everything any new parents need to throw the perfect gender-neutral shower for themselves, their friends, and their new little baby.

‘Jeopardy!’ means?

Since Jeopardy! first aired on television in 1984, fans all across the world haven’t been able to get enough of the trivia-style game where an answer is given as a clue and then contestants must give the correct response in the form of a question. With our version of the Baby Shower Jeopardy game or baby trivia jeopardy, the concept is the same, it means only you and your family and friends can play together anywhere anyhow – Digital or Physical (the traditional way). It’s totally up to you!

IF YOU’RE SAVVY, GO DIGITAL

If you don’t have time to create the shower jeopardy board, you can also play the game via our PowerPoints. We’ve saved you time by creating two different interactive versions for you and your guests to play. You can freely download and use it any time you want!

The PowerPoint allows you the opportunity to present the quiz game to your guests on a large screen, similar to how they do it on the actual show! Guests can gather around the screen, and take turns “buzzing” in to answer these questions. They can keep track of their own score, or there can be a designated score-keeper.

And for a larger view, open the PowerPoint via your laptop and easily connect it to a TV or to a projector. Find Your Mom Tribe notes, “The digital game is suitable if you, the host, are a tech-savvy one and have the tools necessary to make it work.”

We have a couple of great options for the slides too, we created a classic style Jeopardy themed Powerpoint and a WebBabyShower themed Powerpoint. The choice is yours!

Easy Baby shower Games Our interactive PowerPoints make playing this Baby Jeopardy game so incredibly easy!

Things You’ll Need when going digital at the shower:

Laptop

Slides/Presentation—for the digital board

TV or whiteboard projector, if available

Buzzer or whistle (or you can just use your hands to answer!)

LET’S GET PHYSICAL…WITH SOME EASY DIY

If you prefer the traditional way to play, that’s a great choice too! You can simply download the free printables we have created for you via the form below. (We’ve even created step-by-step instructions for home printing, plus the questions and answers printable for your convenience.) Then you can print, cut, and paste it on the board.

Feeling crafty? For you DIYers, you can feel free to design the board any way you like. What’s more, Find Your Mom Tribe points out the new mom can keep the hand-made items for memories and you can also use it when your little girl or boy turns one year old. So get creative, and make this game uniquely your own!

Things You’ll Need for your Baby Shower Jeopardy game:

Poster Board: Tulamama suggest while a white poster board looks best, you could even use a cut-up box to make your own DIY Jeopardy game.

Jeopardy Printable 

Paper/index card and pen if you’re just going to freehand it

Scissors 

Thumbtacks or glue—for pinning/pasting the cut-out paper on the board

Buzzer or whistle (if not available, guests can just raise their hands when they want to answer!)

Categories for the game questions

On Jeopardy!, the TV show, there are 6 categories, like Before & After, Around the World, or Recent Movies. Each category has five clues, and the value of each is based on difficulty. Our version basically has the same game format, except you can feel free to add more categories if you’d like. And there’s one other major difference. Every category to choose from has—you guessed it—a theme for babies!

  • Baby Facts
  • Baby Things

Of course, just because it’s a baby shower, doesn’t mean you have to make the game baby-themed. After all, the main goal of your shower is simply that the guests all have fun! If you think they would prefer more traditional questions, then go for it! It’s all about keeping the focus on the main goal of ensuring that the expectant mother and the guests have a great time.

That being said, here are some more categories that you can use if you don’t want the entire game to be fully baby-themed:

  • History
  • Pop culture
  • Geography
  • Politics
  • Movies
  • Sports
  • Literature

Jeopardy Game Set-Up

Planning baby showers take a lot of work, and you don’t have a ton of time to spend setting up games—we get it! That’s why we have easy-to-follow instructions for setting up your baby shower jeopardy game board, whether you choose to download our printable, use either of our PowerPoints, or you opt to freehand your board. Your game will be set up in no time. But it will look so amazing, your guests will think you spent hours setting it up!

We have done all the work in creating the professional materials, and all you have to do is set it up and impress all your guests!

Setting up the Game

Jeopardy Game With Answer Key for Printable:

Here’s how to quickly set up your Jeopardy game if you decide to use the physical version:

  • Download, open the printable, then print.
  • You can also print an additional image or design if you want
  • Cut out the title, categories, and the amounts.

image of baby jeopardy questions and answers printable, baby jeopardy categories

If Using our free PowerPoints:

Set up your laptop, computer or if you have it, a projector – make sure guests can see it!

The PowerPoint is well made for a smooth game, as you’ll just need one click and it will open right away to the designated slide but we advise you to do a test run before guests arrive to ensure no technical difficulties.

As you progress forward in the slide show, each Jeopardy question will be shown. It is meant to progress exactly like the TV version. All you have to do is move the slides forward, and you have a well-organized, professional Jeopardy episode in your own home!

Tip: If you are doing a virtual baby shower, you can even share your screen with your family and guests during a live call. Make sure the image is not pixelated when flashed so that everyone can play smoothly!

If FreeHand:

  • Write the amount in the paper or index card.
  • The amount will be 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500.
  • You will need this in each category. For example, if you will have 5 categories, you’ll have to make 5 pieces per amount. 
  • Write the game name or title at the top of the board.
  • Below the title, divide into 5 columns. If you have 5 categories, then write the category name in each.
  • Paste or pin the paper or index card with the amount in each category.
  • You can also cut an image from your old photos or magazine to be more custom. You can paste this on your board for decorations.

Note: Planning for Keeps offers this design tip— “Perfectionists out there might want to use more stickers or stencils.”

Baby Jeopardy Game Play

Some baby shower games can be confusing to play, zapping the fun right out of your party—not so with Baby Jeopardy! Baby Jeopardy will turn a boring baby shower into a fun experience for all! In fact, it’s so easy to play, all ages, boy or girl, will love it. Even your crotchety Aunt Janice, who claims she doesn’t like games. (We don’t believe her!) Read on for gameplay instructions.

How to Play:

The guests can play individually, or to really ramp up the competition (friendly, of course!), they can also be divided into teams. Not sure how to fairly divide teams? Planning for Keeps has an idea—at one party, they placed a colored index card under each person’s chair or you can also print an image of the expecting parents, and then the guests with the same color or image became a team. Or, if guys are in attendance for a co-ed bash, Tulamama suggests a game of women versus men! Boy, this would really be so exciting!

Once the players are identified, they will choose a representative that will buzz or raise a hand to answer. They can also shout their names to determine the first one easily. Our game with the answer key makes playing this game a breeze.

If the Mom-to-Be is included in the game, their team can go first. If not, the teams or host will just decide who will go first. The image or screen with categories will be flashed then the first team will pick a category and amount. It would be fun if both teams will come up with team names too!

The host will read the question. Don’t forget the Jeopardy rules! The question is the answer, so the players must supply the right question to it in order to get the points. For example, one of ourBaby 101 jeopardy questions– 100-point clue is: ‘Conveniently Holds All Baby Items’, to which the player would answer with the question, “What is a diaper bag?” Answered correctly, the player then scores 100 points! 

The team representative will whistle/press the buzzer/raise their hand or say their name if they want to answer. If they got it right, they can get the card with the amount chosen on the board and keep it. If you’re playing the digital version, the scorekeeper can just record it. If the score is wrong, then it means the other team(s) can try to answer it.

The game will continue until all the amounts in all categories are gone. Remember, the higher category score means harder questions!

The teams will then total the amount they got. The team with the most points wins—YAY!

Wait! What if there’s a tie? Planning for Keeps notes that a tie doesn’t happen often, but suggests having a “random tie-breaker question” just in case, such as another nursery rhyme jeopardy question or a book quote. 

image of free digital baby shower jeopardy game winner

So What About Prizes?

Baby showers are a reflection of your unique style and individual preferences, including the decision of whether or not to have game prizes. Honestly, most winners are more than happy to walk away with bragging rights and the image of a winner! But if you do opt for prizes, you may want to keep it simple and choose rewards that everyone can enjoy, like gift cards. Find Your Mom Tribe also recommends other prize ideas, such as a massage session, a paid dinner at a restaurant, or even a paid yoga session. 

Now that you know how to set up and play this great game, your baby shower isn’t in jeopardy of a line-up of boring games. In fact, we predict it will be the hit of the party at your upcoming celebration! For othergreat game ideas and professional planning tips, check out even more WebBabyShower articles.

Do I Need Games at a Baby Shower?

We have spent this article up to this point taking you through a fun baby shower trivia game that we think you will love. But some mothers have a different type of question altogether – what if I don’t want games at my baby shower? Baby showers are such a traditional environment that sometimes you can feel pressured into doing something you don’t want to do. And we’re here to tell you, not wanting to play a game is totally fine!

Perhaps you are ok with simply having a bunch of people over for some great conversation! Maybe your group isn’t the “game type,” and would prefer to catch up over some drinks and some great food. It’s all good! It’s your party after all, and the most important thing is to keep the guests and the mommy-to-be happy!

Conclusion

Thanks for checking out our guide to Baby Shower Jeopardy. As you can see, it’s a fun twist on a game that many of your guests are sure to already love. Jeopardy is so popular for its simplicity. At its core, it’s a basic trivia game, and who doesn’t love that? So have some fun injecting a touch of competition into your special day!

Our Baby Shower Response to Coronavirus

You have options!

The pregnancy boards and chat rooms at What to Expect, The Bump, and many others have been full of women looking for baby shower alternatives due to coronavirus. 

Due to the coronavirus’s highly contagious, and unpredictable nature, it makes sense that expectant mothers are looking for ways to have a baby shower during covid’s pandemic that will also keep their families safe. 

Well, look no further. 

WebBabyShower has helped thousands and thousands of families organize online baby showers for over a decade. We want to help out now by letting people know that they do have options.  

The Rebate

We’re creating a new rebate program for anyone looking for a safe yet intimate alternative baby shower due to coronavirus.

WebBabyShower has served an important niche for customers with family spread all over the map, or dealing with specific circumstances like bed rest, or military families on deployment. Often our customers mix an online shower with a smaller in-person gathering. It’s been a growing trend for over a decade as many women’s web of family and friends stretches across the country and overseas.

If you’re interested in our Coronavirus-related rebate, please drop us a line, and we’ll immediately send you a discount code that you can use on sign-up.

And if you are so inclined, please respond to the email with a note telling us about your situation, which we can share on this page, allowing other women to know that it’s not affecting just them and that they are not alone.

In the meantime, here’s a little bit of what you’ll get if you choose to utilize our customizable themes and templates.

Baby Shower Alternatives Due To Covid

When you’re used to traditional baby showers, a virtual shower might take a little bit of getting used to. But we hope you’ll see that, with WebBabyShower, congregating online doesn’t diminish the fun of the event. 

As the first virtual baby shower service online, WebBabyShower has managed to carve out a unique lane where their customers get all of the fun of a traditional baby shower for a fraction of the price and none of the headache. 

The platform allows for parents to send out invitations and keepsakes,  host games, blog about the baby, upload pictures, and more. Afterward, the website can serve as a hub for updates about the baby, as it reaches important milestones.  

Plus, WebBabyShower offers customers the unique ability to keep their shower going for six months! That means that there will be ample time for all friends and family to stop by the secure URL, get updates, leave messages, and celebrate the new baby. 

With WebBabyShower, no one in the family has to feel left out, and most importantly, no one has to expose themselves to the Coronavirus just to say they had a baby shower. 

Win/win all around.

Every woman and pregnancy deserves to be celebrated. We wish you all a safe and beautiful Spring.

I googled how to throw a virtual baby shower and a link from babypalooza.com stated it. I really appreciate this you have no clue! Thank you so much. So many things are being taken from us first time moms right now, and stress and anxiety and so high. You’re really doing a great thing!

– Tia Guerin

We are so sad not to be celebrating my daughter-in-laws shower in person, but realize it’s just not possible at this scary time when we are all sheltering in place. Thank you for creating this site so we ‘virtually’ celebrate the coming event! You even had a llama style to choose from, similar to the paper invitation we had already sent. 

– Tamara Bryan

I’m throwing a baby shower for my cousin who is due in July. I offered the idea of throwing one after the baby is born, but who knows how long this will take to blow over? I just want to show her she is loved and supported just as much as if we were there in person. 

– Breanne Hentschel

We bought a home in Vegas and decided to remodel it. Then we found out we were having a baby. With my family in San Francisco and his family in New Jersey, we were scheduled to have 3 baby showers in total. One with each of the families and then on in San Francisco for our friends from Los Angeles and San Francisco. We’ve cancelled all 3, as we just can’t safely travel even if and when the restrictions might lift, plus the size of the gatherings. 
We are grateful for our health of friends and family, and grateful that we can build a central place for everyone to gather and come together to keep everyone involved. 

– Megan Blattspieler

My shower was planned for January of this year, but my boys decided to come early so we had to reschedule. We planned again for April 18th, only to have a stay at home order put in place. Our venue cancelled on us on account of the Coronavirus so once again we had to change plans. I was so happy to find WebBabyShower because it is allowing all of my friends and family to be involved in welcoming the boys, and it is even letting more people be involved than we were originally planning, since distance is no longer a factor for participation. I was very happy to see how easy the site was to setup, and being able to personalize it has been fantastic. Thanks for making my baby shower happen, third time’s the charm!

– LeeAnn Kinsel

We began to realize that an in-person shower would not be available to us because of health guidelines due to COVID-19.  Therefore, we began researching creative ways that we could have a virtual baby shower. We discovered WebBabyShower and it was a great solution for a changing situation!  It provided an immediate calm knowing we could make it work no matter the changing scenario while keeping everyone healthy and the ability to reach further beyond the original invite list of local guests. It’s given folks something to do while being stuck at home.  Thanks for this creative celebration tool!

– Katie Stutts 

Thank you!
My daughter is expecting her little boy in May.  We had invitations out for her baby shower now for some time.  We were planning on a huge celebration at our church, but with the current situation and guidelines, we just don’t want to limit anyone from participating in the celebration.  We also want everyone to stay safe.

– Christi Lynn

First time mom here and I was so looking forward to my shower on April 5th to celebrate my baby boy Riley. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it to never happen. I’ve been talking about it for months. I’ve held off on cancelling, giving myself false hope that I wouldn’t have to. But it recently became apparent that I had no choice but to cancel. I was immediately devastated, feeling robbed. Not only would I be missing out on fellowship with my friends and family during this special time, but almost all the items on my registry are still there! The possibility of getting to do some sort of alternative has truly lifted my spirits! 

-Sarah Newton

Infertility has robbed us of so much for years and when we finally got the chance to celebrate being pregnant we felt like we couldn’t. WebBabyShower gave us back the opportunity to still celebrate our pregnancy in leu of an in person shower. The more we thought about, it was almost for the best because now those who are in other states can still join without having to travel or being upset that they couldn’t attend. We’re looking at it as a win win!

– Felisha Lees

I am due to have my first baby in May and my baby showers were scheduled for this month and next. With the onset of COVID-19 and all the precautions that we have taken as a nation, all of my showers were cancelled. Webbabyshower gave me the option to still conduct a baby shower without everyone physically being able to gather. After years of struggling with infertility, I have been looking forward to the day I could have my very own baby shower. This option has been a great assistance to me and really is playing a vital part in continuing life with some semblance of regularity in an unknown time. Thank you WebBaby Shower!

We had to unfortunately cancel our in-person baby shower due to the current circumstances. It was very heartbreaking to do since this is my very first baby and would be my first shower. I also will miss out on having a work shower as well I’m a Kindergarten teacher and was looking forward to celebrating with my colleagues as well. However, since this is out of our control we have decided to do a virtual baby shower. Hopefully family and friends will understand and will join in with us. I’m due in Early June and hope I’ll have enough supplies for the baby. Glad we have found an alternative and can’t wait to use WeBabyShower.

Hello! I am one of the many new moms that cannot have a traditional baby shower due to covid-19. I planned on flying home to have the party with family and friends next month when I wasn’t too pregnant to fly. My due date is in late June. While researching virtual showers your website popped up.  On the site it mentioned you are giving away a discount code because of the virus. I would really appreciate it if that is true.

I think webbaby is the closest to recreating the traditional baby shower for this first time mom.

My name is Christina. My husband comes from a large Italian family (in which he will probably be the only one to continue the family name!), and family is the most important thing to him, but he is 100% infertile so IVF was our only option.  We have been trying for 5 long years with many disappointing egg retrievals, 1 chemical pregnancy, and a 3 more failed embryo transfers. All while my family reproduced like rabbits around us! On top of that, we are both only children and therefore having our parents first grandchild…no pressure, right?! Everyone has been looking forward to our baby shower for years and we don’t even know if they understand our shower cannot be in person. There’s a small chance we may be able to have a small shower closer to my due date in July, but we don’t want to take that risk and have no back up. We are hoping to figure out how to run a virtual shower and are so happy that there is a company that specializes and excels in it! We cannot wait to celebrate our baby girl with our families in a new and innovative way.

Hi there,
I am planning a virtual baby shower for my beloved friend and coworker.  We are both ICU nurses, went to nursing school together, have worked in the same unit for years, and are pregnant with our first babies 2 weeks apart later this summer!  Since COVID, it has been difficult to feel all the exciting things that pregnancy offers, like having family over to help with the nursery or having the world see your bump.  I want to plan something special for my friend so that she knows how

9 Fantastic Baby Shower Trivia Games That Your Guests Will Love!

Everyone knows that baby shower games are the best part of a baby shower. If you’re used to attending in-person showers, you might be wondering what kind of games a virtual shower can offer since the attendees aren’t congregating in the same room.

(Win/win!) If you think about it, baby shower trivia games and virtual baby showers are actually, a match made in heaven!

#9 Baby Animals

Baby animals are the cutest things ever! It’s no wonder that nursery walls and baby merchandise are covered in their likeness. So it’s only fitting that they take center stage in this fun baby shower trivia game.

Hosts, here’s everything you and guests will need to play the game. 

  1. Print out a list of animals with adult and baby animal names. Some answers, like bear and its cub, are common knowledge but since many aren’t, this will prove to be a fun, yet challenging game for guests. 
  2. If playing virtually, send the list to the players by email, or if you are using WebBabyShower you can play it in the games section: for in person games, print out the list 
  3. Instruct the guests to match the adult animal name with the baby name.
  4. To up the ante, impose a time limit. 
  5. Whoever answers the most questions correctly wins! 

#8 Famous Mothers

There’s only one thing the world loves more than celeb babies and that’s the moms who gave them life. There are entire verticals dedicated to famous moms, from the time they announce their pregnancy to the time they introduce their baby to the world. PopSugar Seriously, people are obsessed!

A game to delight any pop culture connoisseur, Famous Mothers is a great way to add a little culture to your baby shower and see what your guests are made up of! 

  1. Hosts, it’s your job to give each guest the name of a famous mom. (The moms can be real-life celebs or even one of our famous fictional moms.)
  2. The player then stands in front of the group. 
  3. Tell the players to shoot off ‘yes or no’ questions until the guests figure out which  famous mother they’ve been assigned. 
  4. Playing virtually is easy too with WebBabyShower, your guests can play this game in their own time too as a matching game.
  5. The first person who guesses their famous mom wins, but don’t be fooled: it’s not as easy as it sounds! 

Tip: To keep things from getting too confusing, the host might also pick moms with super unique characteristics.

#7 Famous Fathers

Famous fathers are just as present in the media as famous mothers. Everyone loves reading about sweet, attentive celebrity fathers, so of course, they also have a game dedicated to them! Famous Fathers follow the same rules as Famous Mothers, except this time, the daddies will take center stage! (Yes, daddies need love too!)

If you know your Brad Pitt’s from your Brad Paisley’s, you should be fine. But if not, you may want to brush up a little on your celebrity gossip.Like the Famous Mother game, you can pick fictional fathers as well — it’s all up to you. 

  1. Hosts give out famous father names to the guys at the shower. 
  2. Players will ask ‘yes or no’ questions until the guests figure out who they are.
  3. WebBabyShower has this game as a matching game so guests can compete in their own time
  4. This game can be played with or without a set time limit, but a limit will definitely increase the pressure. Not to mention, it’ll keep the game from dragging on too long, which will drag down the party.

Tip: If your shower is a co-ed shower which most are these days, you can play both famous fathers and mothers at the same time!

#6 Nursery Rhymes

Nursery rhymes are the soundtrack of a baby’s early life. Their first few years are filled with these sweet, melodic rhymes that center family, friendship, and fairy tales. But how well will your guests remember these poems from their own childhood? Sure, everyone probably remembers ‘Rock-A-Bye-Baby,” but what about lesser known rhymes? Hopefully, well enough to fill in the blanks with this fun, nostalgic trivia game! 

Test your guests recollection skills by playing the Nursery Rhyme Game. 

  1. As the host, you’ll print out or type up the most memorable lines from classic nursery rhymes, but leave one or two words blank.
  2. Pass out or print the print out to/for the guests. 
  3. Instruct the guests to guess the missing words. 
  4. Crown the player who guesses the most questions correctly as the winner. 
  5. Your guests can also play this virtually if you choose us to host your shower. With a scoreboard your guests will still get that friendly competition they would get from a in person shower.

#5 A Baby In Any Language

The new baby will inherit a world rich in different languages. And while it’ll be exciting to watch them reach milestones within their native language (just imagine when they say their first word!) preparing them to interact with different languages will enrich their lives in ways that will last forever! Get a head start on introducing the new baby to the other languages of the world with this fun trivia game, “A Baby In Any Language.”

This particular game will test guest’s knowledge on different pronunciations of the word, “baby,” in other languages. 

1. Hosts will print up a list of the word “baby” in different languages, then include the correct match in a corresponding key.

2. Hosts will then pass out the materials. 

3. Instruct the players to match the word with its language.

4. If you want to make the game harder, you can impose a time limit. 

5. Playing virtually using WebBabyShower’s game section makes this easy and you won’t have to print anything out. Simply choose it as one of your games to have on the games page and let your guests play whenever they visit!

For fun: You can also dictate that players must attempt to correctly pronounce the words aloud. (But be prepared to laugh!)

#4 Baby & Pregnancy Trivia

During pregnancy, it’s great for the expectant mother to have the support of her community, but how well do they really know what goes on during those nine months? Baby and Pregnancy trivia will give the mom-to-be an in-depth glance into how many of her friends and families really understand the changes going on with her and her baby’s bodies. 

  1. Print up questions about baby and pregnancy and baby trivia,
  2. Read out loud to your guests – you can make this multiple choice if ou like.
  3. Then guests will write down their answers.
  4. At the end check your guests answers, the player who answers the most questions correctly wins. 
  5. To play virtually you can always send your guests the questions over email and have them email back your answers. Or if you choose WebBabyShower you won’y have to lift a finger other then to check the scores.

Tip: to really spice things up have guests buzz in to answer the questions like a game show.

#3 Twins/Multiples Baby Trivia

What’s better than baby and pregnancy trivia? Twins and multiples trivia, of course! Just like above, the goal of this game is to test the baby shower guests on their knowledge of twins and multiples.

  • 1. Create or print out trivia about twins and multiples.
  • 2. Quiz the guest about their knowledge of the subject matter. (triple, and quadruple the fun!)
    3. Like the other games, a time limit can or cannot be imposed. In the end, it’ll come down to how challenging  you want the game to be.

#2 Adoption Baby Trivia

Families come in all different shapes and sizes. Whether or not the mother carried the baby herself or adopted him/her from another family, the only thing that matters is life-long bond that will be created. For families who are going through the adoption process, adoption baby trivia is a great way to introduce the concept to friends and family and get everyone acquainted with the idea.

  1. Hosts, it’s crucial that you research the adoption process beforehand and handle the topic with sensitivity. and then come up with fun questions for the guests to answer. 
  2. Make sure to exclude questions that “otherize” the new baby and focus on things that promote and celebrate families of all kinds.  
  3. Pass out or send the question to participants. 
  4. Award the person who answers the most questions correctly as the winner. 

#1  Baby Songs

You won’t realize how often singers use the word “baby” in songs until you play this fun Baby Song trivia game. Given the venue, it might be best to keep these songs family-friendly, but ultimately it depends on the temperament of the guests. One could also use themed songs, from certain genres or eras. The possibilities are truly endless!

  1. Hosts, print out a list of songs with the word “baby” in the lyrics. 
  1. Read the lyrics aloud to the guests. 
  2. Instruct the guests to guess the name of the song based on the lyrics. 
  3. Whoever proves to be more musically inclined will win it all!
  4. If you choose us to host your shower, we take out the leg work and guests can simply answer our premade “baby song” questions online!

We hope that these games gave you an idea of the virtual fun that baby shower trivia games can offer you. But remember, these are just a few games that moms can have enjoy at their virtual baby shower. There’s a near endless list of baby shower trivia that guests can partake in. Likewise, hosts should feel free to put their own spin on any of the above games listed.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not a virtual shower is right for you, know that these games pack in just as much fun as more traditional games that require in-person participants. But ultimately, the only thing a mom-to-be needs to have a great shower is the love and support of her community, be it friends, family, or co-workers.

One last thing: don’t count these baby shower trivia games out for traditional showers, either! They can hold their weight among all the baby-food-tasting, blind-folded-diaper -changing games out there!
