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. It’s not like you can measure the mother’s belly or taste baby food over a video conference. Well, fret not. Where traditional games fall short baby shower trivia games deliver! If you are looking for printables that you can partner with your virtual shower games, visit it here!
While everyone loves traditional games, incorporating baby shower trivia questions into the fold is also a great way to keep things fun and exciting when the guests are separated by distance. Personally, I prefer baby shower trivia because it forces guests to be in the moment. Plus, the adorable stationery that the questions are printed on can double as party savers for the guests. (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.
- 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.
- 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
- Instruct the guests to match the adult animal name with the baby name.

#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!
- 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.)
- The player then stands in front of the group.
- Tell the players to shoot off ‘yes or no’ questions until the guests figure out which famous mother they’ve been assigned.
- Playing virtually is easy too with WebBabyShower, your guests can play this game in their own time too as a matching game.
- 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.
- Hosts give out famous father names to the guys at the shower.
- Players will ask ‘yes or no’ questions until the guests figure out who they are.
- WebBabyShower has this game as a matching game so guests can compete in their own time
- 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!

#5 A Baby In Any Language

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.
