How To Play The Baby Shower Alphabet Game

This alphabet game is ideal for all types of baby showers. It doesn’t require a lot of materials and is easy to learn. Your guests will love it! Here’s what you need, and how to play the baby shower alphabet game

  • You’ll need a pen and a sheet of paper with the letters of the alphabet listed, A–Z. 
  • To play the game, hand out a pen and a copy of your printed baby alphabet game sheet to each guest. 
  • Set a timer (we recommend 2–3 minutes) and instruct guests to come up with a word for each letter of the alphabet — the catch is that the words must be pregnancy or baby-relatedd! (Example: Applesauce for A, Bib for B, Crib for C, etc.)
  • Whoever has the most complete list of baby alphabet words at the end of the time is the winner!

The baby shower alphabet game is great for in-person baby showers, but with just a little more preparation, you can easily play it during virtual showers, mail-in showers, and drive-through baby showers! 

For virtual baby showers, you’ll gather the supplies each guest will need to participate well before the shower and mail them to your remote guests. We suggest including instructions on how to play so guests are prepared. 

If guests are attending virtually, they can keep their game cards blank and play on the day of the shower. They can also fill their game cards out and mail them back to you (make sure you include a return envelope and postage in this case). For drive-thru showers, have your guests fill their cards out before they arrive and drop them off with their gifts. 

WebBabyShower is perfect for sharing virtual, mail-in, or drive-thru alphabet cards. Simply upload them to your gallery and share them with guests so they can see the responses everyone came up with!
