#9 Baby Animals
There’s almost nothing cuter than baby animals. Except, well, baby humans! That’s why most parents include animal patterns in their uber-cute nursery decor. So it’s only fitting that they take center stage in this fun baby shower trivia game.
This is how the game works. To play the host will print up the adult name of an animal on one side and the name of its baby on the other. (Example: a bear and its cub.)
The point of the game is to match the adult animal to the baby. Some matches are widely known like a bear and its cub, but many aren’t. (Can you guess what a cheeper grows into?) So this will prove to be a fun, yet challenging game for guests. To up the stakes, the host can even impose a time limit. But honestly, who wouldn’t want to spend all day playing a game about baby animals? Sign us up! The person with the most correct answers wins! (Though when baby animals are involved, everyone wins.)

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! To play, the host will coordinate with the guests and give each the name of a famous mom to wear on their backs. The moms can be real-life celebs or even one of our famous fictional moms.
The guests then have to ask ‘yes or no’ questions to the remaining guests to figure out the famous mother they’ve been assigned. 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 (finally, an excuse to use social media!) Like the Famous Father game, you can pick fictional fathers as well — it’s all up to you.
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.
#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? 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. To play, the host will print out the most memorable lines from classic nursery rhymes, but leave one or two words blank.

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 the love given and received. 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.
This game is played best by allowing the host to research the process and then come up with fun questions for the guests to answer. Given the sensitive nature of adoption, it might be smart for hosts to do a little extra research. Make sure to exclude questions that “otherize” the new baby and focus on things that promote and celebrate families of all kinds. Of course, the person who answers the most questions correctly will win.
