Long version, your guests will look at photos of women who are either in a horror scene or a labor scene in a movie. Then, they’ll guess as to which kind of scene it is. It can be surprisingly difficult to tell! This game is super simple & sure to get some laughs. Here are the directions:

  • Get the WebBabyShower printable for the Labor or Horror Movie Scene game.
  • Get a pen and paper to record guests’ scores.
  • Show each image to guests and record their answers as either a labor scene or a horror movie scene. You can do this by a show of hands, or, if you want, you can have each person write down their answers on their copy of the printable.
  • Tally up the answers.
  • The guest with the most correct answers is the winner!
  • Give the winner a prize.

It’s that simple! Your guests will enjoy it, and it’s an excellent way for the host to plan an activity that doesn’t require a lot of extra setup or items to buy.

In-person or Virtual

At WebBabyShower, our goal is to make things easier for baby shower hosts and guests. You’ve got plenty to do with planning; games should be simple! This game is pretty straightforward, making it fun to play in person and virtually. 

WebBabyShower is here to keep things simple for you when you’re planning. If you’re having an in-person baby shower, you can access our printable for this game. Then give each guest a paper and something to write with. This will make it easy to keep track of scores, and you can gather up all of the game sheets at the end of the round.

This game also works well for a mail-in or drive-by baby shower. You can send out the printable by mail with instructions. Then the guests can fill it out and mail it back to you. You can announce the winner through email or Zoom. For a drive-by baby shower, you can mail out the game sheets in advance, so everyone just gives them to you already done at the drive-by event. This takes a bit of planning, but it should all come together fairly easily.
