Perfect for a Virtual Shower

As mentioned, in this article we are focusing on an emerging trend – the virtual shower. A virtual shower is a great way to bring everyone together. This is quite obviously important considering current world events, but they also hold numerous benefits on their own. They allow everyone to work around a more flexible schedule, and you can open up your guest list to people who are far away. Not to mention, no mess to clean up!

Of course, one of the main roadblocks you may hit when planning this type of party is how to keep everyone entertained. Without everyone in the same room, it is sometimes difficult to have an activity that coordinates everyone. That’s why a quiz is such an excellent baby shower activity.

However, as with anything that isn’t face-to-face, it can be difficult to coordinate perfectly. From keeping score, to organizing when everyone gets to answer, to creating questions, it all gets a bit more complicated at a virtual party. For this and many other reasons, we created WebBabyShower

We have incorporated quiz games right into the WebBabyShower platform. We make it easy to coordinate this fun baby shower game for all your guests. The last thing you want to worry about is the logistics. Let’s take a look at how this all works:

Using WebBabyShower For a Quiz Game

If you would like to play a virtual baby shower game, your WebBabyShower comes with several quiz-style games already turned on and ready for you and your guests to play! You can play all of the virtual baby shower games at once, or play them one at a time, or a couple at time, depending on how you and your guests plan to use your WebBabyShower.

We have left the choice up to you! We understand that each mom has her own idea of how she wants her baby shower to go. After all, no one wants the exact same baby shower activity as everyone else.

We provide you all the tools to run and organize a quiz game, while leaving you with enough freedom to do it on your own terms. This ensures that the baby shower guests and the expectant mom are all happy with the activity.

nline baby shower games

For each matching or multiple choice virtual baby shower game, Web Baby Shower has a database of about 30 – 60 questions for each game. Each time you or your guests play a game, you will be given a random selection of 10 questions to answer. This is intended to keep the games fresh and inviting to play.

This multiple choice approach greatly simplifies the process for everyone, and makes the whole activity more streamlined. Not only does it make it so everyone is not talking over one another, it allows WebBabyShower to keep score as the quiz goes on. It becomes a simple and straightforward baby shower game.


Baby Quiz Game Categories

In addition to running a seamless and well-organized game, WebBabyShower offers a wide range of categories to choose from. We understand that each guest list is not the same. So we have offered a lot of choice between topics. No matter what mum and her guests are interested in, you can find a fun set of categories within our platform.

Here’s a list of categories offered:

• Baby Animals (matching)
• Famous Mothers (matching)
• Famous Fathers (matching)
• Nursery Rhymes (trivia/multiple choice)
• A Baby In Any Language (multiple choice)
• Baby & Pregnancy Trivia (multiple choice)
• Baby Trivia + Twins/Multiples (multiple choice)
• Baby Trivia + Adoption (multiple choice)
• Baby Songs (open-ended)

Guests just provide a screen name or nickname to play a game. They also have the option to provide an email address in order to be contacted if they win a prize.

Baby High Scores!

For matching and multiple choice games, each person who plays a game will be scored based on the percentage of correct answers given and their time.

For open-ended virtual baby shower games, such as Baby Songs, WebBabyShower will scan answers for security purposes, but it is up to the host to check that the responses!

High Scores for each game will be posted on your Web Baby Shower Games page. Scores are ranked by highest percentage correct or highest number of points and lowest time.

At this time, it is possible to play each game more than once, although you will most likely be given a different set of questions each time.

Baby Shower Games

Virtual Baby shower games are typically done with groups of people who may not know each other very well, so games and activities serve to break-the-ice and set the mood for your shower. If you are throwing a baby shower with a theme, games can revolve around the theme.

In this article, we’re looking at everything you’ll need to know about baby shower games for your virtual party. We will outline some of the virtual games and traditional games you have available to you. But we’ll also look at how to choose which games to play. Whether you plan to go the traditional or virtual route for a shower, this article is here for you.

And remember, it is all about creating a fun environment for the expecting mom and her guests. So whether or not games are the right way to do that is a consideration that you’ll have to make based on what you want out of your shower. In this guide, we’re going to help you figure out not only which games to play, but whether games are the right choice for your shower in the first place!

General Outlines

First things first, are games even the right choice for your shower? And if so, what’s the right number of games for a baby shower?

To decide whether or not you actually want games to be part of your shower, your first consideration should be your guests. Mum knows her guests better than anyone, so get her input into whether a fun baby shower game is the right way to bring everyone together. Consider what your friends enjoy, and how they typically interact, and you will have the best idea of whether a game is the ideal way to get the party going. Sometimes, people just want to hang out or talk, and that’s totally fine!

Generally speaking, if you are intent on having games at your baby shower, pick about 3 games for a 2-hour shower.  This provides guests with enough time to arrive, settle in, socialize and get some snacking in. After all, you don’t want to rush everyone into the shower games as soon as they get there. Make time for everything on your wishlist, not just games.

Once you have settled on a schedule for your traditional or virtual baby celebration, you might be wondering which games to actually play. There are tons of choices available, but there are understandable considerations involved if you plan to have a virtual shower. Of course, the primary one is that not everyone is together in the same room. So you’ll need a game that can be played effectively without physical interaction. Fortunately, there are a lot of choices available, and we will go over all sorts of traditional and virtual shower options. Let’s get started:


Baby Shower Games & Activities: Traditional

If you’d like some professional printed games for that perfect look. Then we recommend Beaucoup for more fun baby shower games. If she’s game, the most fun for sure is the How Big Is The Bump Baby Shower Game. The printed tape measures are 2 meters long, the kind of thing you can’t get done at home easily.

If you are planning to have a traditional baby shower, this extra preparation goes a long way. Having everything prepared ahead of time shows the expectant mom that you have gone the extra mile to ensure her and her guests have a great time. And as a bonus, the supplies are typically quite inexpensive and easy to prepare.

Ok so here are a few unique ideas for baby shower games and activities — the ideas are free you just need to get the supplies!

Popular Baby Shower Activities:

Baby Shower Game: Musical Dolls
Baby Shower Game Idea: Magic Names
Baby Shower Craft Activity: Decorated T-Shirts

Get Your Baby Shower Games Printable Now

GRAB IT! 

Nowadays, I’m guessing that most of your guests will come with their phones anyway, so why not also incorporate the online baby shower games included with a WebBabyShower? You can print the high scores as part of the Printable Keepsake when your guests are done participating.

But if you are looking for some print at home solutions, then jump over to our free printables!

Baby Shower Games: Musical Dolls

Here’s an example of a classic game for a traditional baby shower. This is such a great game because it is harmless fun. No embarrassing stories, no guessing the size of the expecting parents! Just a fun game that gets everyone involved.

In this variation of “musical chairs,” the last one not holding the baby doll wins!

Suggested Directions and Rules:

1. Have your guests sit in a circle, either on chairs or on the floor

2. Swaddle up a doll or stuffed animal in a blanket for everyone to rock.

3. Start the music

4. Each person has to rock the “baby” in their arms 3 times before passing it along (clockwise, suggested)

5. When the music stops, the person holding the baby is out

6. Repeat until you have a winner.
If you have a lot of guests, you may want to use 2 or more “babies” to get more people out.

Baby Shower Games: Magic Names

This one is really easy and fun. Have your guests create a “magic name” for the new baby. As guests arrive, and throughout the party, have them write down a funny name on a slip of paper and put it into a bowl.

When everyone has had a chance to submit a name, stir them up and pull three out. You can decide the order they go in for “first,” “middle” and “last” name. Write it down on a piece of paper to present to the group and for a “memento” for the mom-to-be of her baby’s “magic name.”

Some recent babies have been donned the magic names of “Logan Jeremiah Swimming Tadpole Forrest” and “Moon Shadow Mateo Mountain.” Well, at least we know what the parents aren’t going to name them! Have fun!

Baby Shower Games: Virtual

WebBabyShower comes with quiz-style baby shower games plus trivia and “Baby Songs”, baby photos guessing game and Web Baby Shower’s very own “Birthday Bets”. If you want to host a virtual baby shower with lots of fun game ideas already “done for you”, check out how to start your WebBabyShower today!

Quiz Game

A quiz game is one of the most popular virtual baby shower ideas. This works so well with a long distance baby shower because it doesn’t require everyone to be in the same room. Many of the traditional baby shower games require physical interaction, but a quiz game can be done from anywhere.

There are additional aspects that make a quiz ideal for a virtual shower. Quizzes allow a game that is easy to coordinate, and everyone can think of their answers in silence. There is no worry of people talking over or interrupting each other, as everyone will want to keep their answers to themselves.

With WebBabyShower, we provide additional options to make it even more seamless. The answers are multiple choice, which allows us to tally up the score automatically. This makes for a seamless game that you don’t even have to organize! Just get everyone on board, and get ready for fun.

We offer multiple categories for your games, including animals, baby facts, and more.

A quiz game is one of the most popular virtual shower games because it works so effortlessly over a video call, and we give you everything you need to make it even easier.

Baby Shower Craft Activity: Decorated T-Shirts

This is a great game idea for a second or subsequent baby shower where the expecting family already has a supply of baby t-shirts. Or, if you just want to do something creative for a new baby. Grab a stack of baby t-shirts and some non-toxic fabric paints and paint away! If your guests are intimidated at first, give them ideas of simple things to draw and decorate the shirts with:

• smiley faces
• stars
• sun
• flowers
• hearts
• teddy bears
• monsters/imaginary creatures
• “bow-tie” / “tux”
• squiggles, swirls, polka dots

… you can even decorate the collar and sleeves!

When everyone is done decorating, make sure you have a place where all the shirts can lay flat to dry for 24 hours. When the paints have dried, wash the shirts according to shirt and fabric paint instructions.

Top Consideration: Don’t Force It!

The number one thing to keep in mind with games is that it’s supposed to be easy and effortless. Games are a way to bring everyone together over a common activity. If that sounds like an easy and seamless transition for your group, then that’s great! But if not, then don’t force it.

If you think it will be too difficult to coordinate a game, or it doesn’t sound like something all your friends will be interested in, then that’s totally fine. Different people like to hang out in different ways, and no one knows what their own group will enjoy better than you. At the end of the day, a baby shower is meant to be fun. So if games seem like something you would have to force into the mix, maybe they aren’t the right thing for you. Don’t be too confined by ideas of what a “traditional” baby shower should be. If you just want to hang out and chat, that’s great!

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

webbabyshower header image balloons giraffe zebra lion elephant gift stroller

Baby shower games are the best part of any baby shower. But 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. After all, you can’t exactly measure the mother’s belly or taste baby food over a video conference. Well, fret not. Where traditional games fall short for virtual baby showers, baby shower trivia games definitely 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. I personally prefer baby shower trivia because it forces guests to be in the moment and really think. 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! 

Don’t believe us? Here are 9 fun baby shower games sure to delight your guests and keep them entertained for hours!

#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.)

#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!  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.

WebBabyShower Rhino

 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! 

webbabyshower giraffe with notes

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. It will then be the guests’ duty to guess the missing words, and complete the songs. Whoever gets the most songs correct wins!

#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 t will test guest’s knowledge on different pronunciations of the word, “baby.” How fun!  To play, the host will print up a  list of the word “baby” in different languages, then include the correct match in a corresponding key wi. Guests will then receive a print off of the list and try to match the word with its language. To up the ante on this game by imposing a time limit.

If the host wants to make things extra competitive, they can attempt to correctly pronounce the words aloud. (Prepare 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? Do they understand that pregnancy actually 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 body?

For this game, the host has to print up questions about this beautiful, confusing, unique experience. To give the less-informed guests a leg up, the host can include multiple choice answers in the mix. But if the host wants to keep things challenging, they can skip this step. Like the other games, the person who answers the most questions correctly wins. It can be played with or without a time limit.

Baby Shower Planning for Millennials

#3 Twins/Multiples Baby Trivia

The only thing better than baby and pregnancy trivia is twins and baby trivia! Just like above, the goal of this game is to test the baby shower guests on their knowledge of twins and multiples.

To play this game, the guests will be quizzed on their knowledge of twins and multiples. Double (triple, and quadruple the fun!) Like the other games, a time limit can or cannot be imposed. In the end, it’ll come down to how challenging the host wants 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 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.

#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. The job of the host is to print out a list of songs with the world “baby” in the lyrics. 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!

Next, the host will read the lyrics aloud to the guests. The goal of the game is for guests to  guess the song based on the lyrics. If you want to  Whoever proves to be more musically inclined will win it all!

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 new moms and company can 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!

Did you enjoy this article? If so, please take time to share it with your friends and family, especially those embarking on the beautiful journey that is motherhood.

Drawing Prompts. Fun Baby Shower Pictionary prompts include items, like onesies, umbilical cord, and stroller. Plus actions, like Labor Contractions, Playing Peek-a-Boo, and Changing a Dirty Diaper.

Game Day Play. It’s the day of your baby shower! Gather drawing paper and markers. You’ll also need a container, like a bowl or a bag (with the pre-cut strips of Baby Shower Pictionary Prompts inside for guests to draw from). Don’t forget a timer – the one on your phone will work!

Baby Shower Pictionary Instructions. Divide guests into two teams. Team One will choose a player to randomly grab a Pictionary prompt from the bowl. That player will have one minute (or any pre-determined set time) to draw the prompt item – like Food Cravings – for example.

Shhhhh! Player One isn’t allowed to talk or make any gestures. And Team Two can’t make any guesses, or they lose their turn. If Team One can guess correctly before time runs out, they get a point! Then it’s Team Two’s turn. Game play continues until there are no drawing prompts left.

Keeping Score. Keep up with the number of points each team earns for a correct guess. The team with the most points at the end of the game is crowned the Baby Shower Pictionary Winner – all bragging rights included!

Our Gift-Based Version. Throughout the years, traditional Bingo has morphed as people have found new ways to play. We’re offering our own gift-based version. It’s fun! It’s free! And it’s printable! So no worries about having enough cards for all your family and friends to play.

WebBabyShower Baby Gift Bingo Blue

Printable Baby Shower Bingo.One common flaw with printable Bingo is the answers are all located in the same place on each card. That’s not really Bingo! Our printable baby shower “fill-in” version of the game avoids this completely. Every card will be different!

How to Play. First, everyone gets their own Bingo card. Instead of letters or pictures, the squares are blank. Guests will then fill in each square with a gift they think Mommy-to-Be will receive at the baby shower. But don’t freak out! We have a list of suggestions to fill in the squares.

Gift Bingo Suggestions. When it comes to filling in your blank Bingo squares, we have plenty of suggestions: Bottle, Sleeper, Bib, Diapers, Rattle, Baby Monitor, High Chair, and more! Remember, these are simply suggestions. Your guests can also come up with their own ideas.

Bingo, We Have a Winner! Once guests have filled in their squares with gift items, the game begins. As each gift is opened, mark it off. The first person to get five in a row (Up/Down, Across, Diagonally) yells, “Baby Bingo!” And we have a winner!

Virtual Baby Shower Games & Activities

Baby Shower Games

Virtual Baby shower games are typically done with groups of people who may not know each other very well, so games and activities serve to break-the-ice and set the mood for your shower. If you are throwing a baby shower with a theme, games can revolve around the theme.

What’s the right number of games for a baby shower? Pick about 3 games for a 2-hour shower.  This provides guests with enough time to arrive, settle in, socialize and get some snacking in. What to pick?

Ok so here are a few unique ideas for baby shower games and activities — the ideas are free you just need to get the supplies!

Popular Baby Shower Activities:

Nowadays, I’m guessing that most of your guests will come with their phones anyway, so why not also incorporate the online baby shower games included with a WebBabyShower? You can print the high scores as part of the Printable Keepsake when your guests are done participating.

But if you are looking for some print at home solutions, then jump over to our free printables!

Baby Shower Games: Virtual

WebBabyShower comes with quiz-style baby shower games plus trivia and “Baby Songs”, baby photos guessing game and Web Baby Shower’s very own “Birthday Bets”. If you want to host a virtual baby shower with lots of fun game ideas already “done for you”, check out how to start your WebBabyShower today!

Baby Shower Games: Musical Dolls

In this variation of “musical chairs,” the last one not holding the baby doll wins!

Suggested Directions and Rules:

  1. Have your guests sit in a circle, either on chairs or on the floor
  2. Swaddle up a doll or stuffed animal in a blanket for everyone to rock.
  3. Start the music
  4. Each person has to rock the “baby” in their arms 3 times before passing it along (clockwise, suggested)
  5. When the music stops, the person holding the baby is out
  6. Repeat until you have a winner.
    If you have a lot of guests, you may want to use 2 or more “babies” to get more people out.

Baby Shower Games: Magic Names

This one is really easy and fun. Have your guests create a “magic name” for the new baby. As guests arrive, and throughout the party, have them write down a funny name on a slip of paper and put it into a bowl.

When everyone has had a chance to submit a name, stir them up and pull three out. You can decide the order they go in for “first,” “middle” and “last” name. Write it down on a piece of paper to present to the group and for a “momento” for the mom-to-be of her baby’s “magic name.”

Some recent babies have been donned the magic names of “Logan Jeremiah Swimming Tadpole Forrest” and “Moon Shadow Mateo Mountain.” Well, at least we know what the parents aren’t going to name them! Have fun!

Baby Shower Craft Activity: Decorated T-Shirts

This is a great game idea for a second or subsequent baby shower where the expecting family already has a supply of baby t-shirts. Or, if you just want to do something creative for a new baby. Grab a stack of baby t-shirts and some non-toxic fabric paints and paint away! If your guests are intimidated at first, give them ideas of simple things to draw and decorate the shirts with:

  • smiley faces
  • stars
  • sun
  • flowers
  • hearts
  • teddy bears
  • monsters/imaginary creatures
  • “bow-tie” / “tux”
  • squiggles, swirls, polka dots

… you can even decorate the collar and sleeves!

When everyone is done decorating, make sure you have a place where all the shirts can lay flat to dry for 24 hours. When the paints have dried, wash the shirts according to shirt and fabric paint instructions.

Sweet Traditional Printed Baby Shower Games

WebBabyShower Rhino

A virtual baby shower is a great way to celebrate the arrival of a little one for friends and families who live far and wide from the expectant parents. With a virtual shower, anyone with an internet connection will be able to participate and share their excitement for the growing family.

It’s easy to make the event coed where anyone can join in and participate. If you are hosting a coed shower where both the parents will be present and all of their friends and family members are invited, then you might consider having a few games that involve both the parents and give your guests a chance to win a prize! This will work best if you are setting aside a specific time to host the event through a video or live feed event. Make sure to check out our baby shower tips.

Just because it’s an online baby shower doesn’t mean you can’t have baby shower games! So we wanted to share some great printable baby shower games that are ready to go our friends at Oh My Baby Shower offer. While there are virtual baby shower games included in every WebBabyShower, it might also be fun to send your guests a baby shower game in the traditional snail mail way. This can be a great way to bridge the digital divide and include a bit more of a traditional twist on a contemporary virtual baby shower event.

If both parents will be present at the baby shower event, then there are some fun games that test the guests with how well they know the mommy- or daddy-to-be. For example, you can consider a “Guess Who? Mommy or Daddy?” type of game where guests read a statement, then decide if it describes the mommy- or daddy-to-be best.

There are also games about who knows each parent best where guests read a statement and try to guess the answer for either the mommy or daddy. If only the mother-to-be or the father-to-be will be present at the virtual baby shower, then finding a game that is exclusively about them will be a fun way to not only celebrate the upcoming baby but also shine the spotlight on the new parent. Need more game examples? Oh My Baby Shower has a pre-printed selection.

image courtesy of ohmybabyshowerGames that involve the parents-to-be are a great way to bring the guests of a virtual baby shower even closer together. They are also ideal games because they are not timed or require any answer keys because the answers can be shared during the baby shower event!

Shower games are an excellent way to extend a virtual baby shower event and offer those that prefer a traditional baby shower a chance to enjoy a more in-person experience with others. Plus, it gives your guests a small keepsake to have about a virtual event.

With game sheets sent out ahead of time, guests will have some time to consider the questions, then during the shower, the parents-to-be can go over the answers with everyone. By sending the game well before the event, you are giving your guests something to look forward to!

And what about prizes? That’s easy! The prizes for the winners can be a gift card – sent virtually, of course!

WebBabyShower Free Printable Baby Shower Games

If you have attended a baby shower, then you have probably partaken in a baby shower game that had you rolling in laughter.

Just because a baby shower is virtual does not mean that playing games have to be sacrificed. While it may not be physically possible to play the “guess the melted chocolate candy in the diaper” game on a virtual level, there are many other games that can easily be played.

Here are the easiest ways to choose the best games to play at your virtual baby shower.

1. Individual Games

Not all guests have to play baby shower games in a group with one another. When creating your baby shower website, you will be given a Birthday Bet™ game or other quizzes for a guest to play in the days and weeks leading up to the event. An individual guest can play these games and does not require additional guest participation.

2. Play in Advance

Guests may be in a different time zone from the host or mommy-to-be, so they may not be able to participate in the actual live event. Choose to implement games that can be played at a guest’s leisure no matter what time zone they are in. Guest participation and enjoyment will likely be higher with this in mind.

3. Fun

Guests do not want to spend their time playing a game that requires a high IQ or that they feel like they did poorly at. Choose a game that is fun for guests of all ages to play.

4. Family-Friendly

If the mommy-to-be has a niece, nephew, or other younger family members, choose to have family-friendly games that guests of all ages can enjoy playing. Keeping the games G-rated will ensure that guests of all ages are not offended.

webbabyshower games and quizzes

5. Easy to Play

Guests do not want to get online to read a list of rules about a baby shower game. Some guests may be grandparents or even great-grandparents of the upcoming new addition, so try to make the game easy for all ages to understand.

6. Prizes

Choose to add virtual baby shower games that allow guests to win prizes, but make the prizes realistically because you will have to ship the prize to the guest. Gift cards are a safe choice! This will increase guest participation and make guests choose their answers a little more carefully than normal.

7. Incorporate the Family

If you know the parents-to-be have a close-knit relationship with their distant family, try to add some personal touches when choosing the games. Try the baby photo game, just to get everyone to send in a baby pictures and see if the family can guess right. Or pics of the parents-to-be or the expecting grandparents and guess who the baby may look like.

8. Unlimited Plays

Try to add a game that can be played more than one time. While some games can only be played once by design, try to add a game or games that can be played an unlimited amount of times.

9. New Game Each Week

Give your guests a variety of games to play – without bombarding them – and have a new game begin each week leading up to the baby shower day, or even the day of the birth. This will give guests something to look forward to even after the baby shower has ended.

10. Variety of Games

Virtual baby shower games do not have to be limited to just visual games. Try to add some audible games too, such as name that tune or nursery rhyme.

Things to Remember for Baby Shower Games

When choosing which games to add to your baby shower website, try to think of each guest individually and not as a whole. Not every guest will be in the same time zone, and even if the guest is in your time zone, they may have different hours that require them to sleep when you are awake.

Build Your Shower

Each guest is different, so try to keep this in mind when implementing games to play on the baby shower website. Games that can be played during a guest’s own time will give the guest a more positive experience than a virtual baby shower with limited participation.

It is also important to keep the requests of the mommy-to-be at the forefront of your mind when choosing games. If there is a particular game that the mommy-to-be does not want guests to play, don’t allow that game to be played. The mommy-to-be may not want her baby pictures to be seen on the website in a “guess which baby this is” game being played. Whatever the reason, adhering to the requests of the mommy-to-be is always the right way to go. Play On!
