Here are some suggestions for what to place on the tray.

How to Play Virtually

This game is super easy to play virtually. Let the players know ahead of time that they’ll need a pen and paper. Or you can also email them a game printout to help them keep track of the baby items. 

There are two ways to do this. The first way is to use Zoom. Explain the rules, and then show the tray full of baby items. Then take the tray away and allow time for the guests to write down their answers.

The other way is to download our handy Google Slides version and share your screen on Zoom. Either way will work; it just comes down to preference.
