If you aren’t familiar with the classic game of Pictionary, the concept is pretty simple. Basically, you and your guests are divided into small teams, and one person on each team takes turns drawing a picture while the rest of the team guesses what they are trying to draw. It’s a bit more complicated than this, so below we will give some step-by-step instructions.

Pre-Game Prep. Baby Shower Pictionary requires very little pre-game prep, saving you tons of time – we promise! This is one of our printable baby shower games so you can do it all from home. Before the baby shower, print off the Baby Shower Pictionary prompts with a baby-related item or action to draw. Then cut the prompts into strips. Seriously, it’s that easy!

And unlike many other services for a baby shower party, WebBabyShower Pictionary is completely free!

Drawing Prompts. Fun Baby Shower Pictionary prompts include items, like a diaper bag, baby bottle, diaper pin, baby bump, pacifier, and stroller. Plus, actions like Labor Contractions, Playing Peek-a-Boo, Singing a Nursery Rhyme, Feeding Baby Food, and Changing a Dirty Diaper. Basically, anything goes, and you have the freedom to make it as wild and imaginative as you want!

As long as it is at least loosely baby-related, then you can make a whole bunch of fun prompts for your guests to guess.

Game Day Play. It’s the day of your baby shower! Gather drawing paper and markers. If you have a bunch of guests, it helps to have a big drawing surface, such as a whiteboard, so that everyone can see what the person is drawing.

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). Each drawer will take turns choosing a card from the bowl to select their topic.

Don’t forget a timer – the one on your phone will work! Often, 1-minute intervals are chosen, so that turns to go by relatively quickly and everyone is able to stay engaged.

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. Gameplay 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!

Advantages of Games

The reason that most parents settle on games is that they are simply so much fun! They’re a great way to allow some time for some excitement, some energy, some teamwork, and some laughs.

Games are also a great way to ensure that things don’t get stale. Games occupy time so that your guests are having fun the entire duration of the shower. But if you think that your guests will have a great time regardless, then there’s nothing wrong with simply letting the conversation lead wherever it goes!

And finally, games are a great way to be sure that everyone feels included. Games give everyone a role, and a common goal to work towards. No one feels left out or like they don’t have anyone to talk to. This can be a common issue at baby showers, as it is often an overlap of different families and people from different friend groups. A fun game is a great way to bridge this gap!

Why Choose Printable Games?

Don’t forget, at WebBabyShower we offer a wide variety of printable games, and they are all free! A printable game is an excellent choice because it allows each person an easy method of keeping up with the game and keeping score on their own. And after all, is said and done, each person has a fun memento that they can have at home with them!
