The Best Virtual Baby Shower Games to Play on Zoom…and They’re Free!
We know a thing or two about virtual baby shower games here at WebBabyShower, which is why we’ve put together a database of the best baby shower games you can play. You can check out the games list here – and read on to find out which ones made our list as some of the top games to be played virtually.
1. The Guessing Game
This game requires the mom to answer a list of baby-related questions before the online shower that the guests have to guess the answer to.
Sample questions include:
*What did you crave the most during your pregnancy?
*How much do you think the baby will weigh?
*What has been the most exciting month of the pregnancy?
2. Virtual Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt is a great way to get your guests engaged. It’s all quite simple, too. The host has a list of baby items the new parents will need. Guests simply have to find the items in their homes. Yes, they will have to get up and move, but that just adds to the fun. To begin, start with the word bottle. The first five guests who find a bottle and return to the camera make it to the next round. Each round introduces a new item to find and the game will continue until, by process of elimination, you have a winner. Some items to look for include lotion, blanket, shampoo, bottle, and toy.
To make things super simple we’ve made an awesome interactive google slide version of this game, it’s easy to play during a Zoom call by the host simply sharing your screen once they start the slideshow. Check out our list of free baby shower games to see more!
3. Guess That Baby Tune
This could be the hit of the party! Have guests “sing” a popular song using only the word “do.” The other partygoers have to guess the title of the song. To keep it even more engaging, stick to songs that have the word “baby” in them. Read more about this awesome game here.
4. The Price is Right
Have fun testing guests’ knowledge of what it costs to have a baby. You can use items from the parents’ baby registry or just create a list of common baby items. Guests will need to have access to a pen and paper for this game. Give them about a minute to come up with their guesses on what the prices of these items are. Then they must all display those guesses on the screen at the same time.
For an easy virtual version, you can download our awesome interactive Price is Right slide show.
5. Don’t say the Word “Baby”
The don’t say baby game is super easy to start but pretty challenging to win. At the beginning of the remote baby shower, set forth the rule that no one can say the word “baby” throughout the event. The guest who first calls out someone who does say it gets a point. The guest with the most points at the end of the virtual baby shower wins.
6. Which Parent Game AKA Guess who
This is played like a “who’s who” game. The parents-to-be answer a series of questions ahead-of-time, such as “Who will be the strictest parent?”, “Who was the biggest baby at birth?” and “How many kids do you want?” etc. Guests respond by raising their hand to vote for either Mom or Dad. Whichever parent outsmarted the partygoers is the winner.
7. Celebrity Parent Charades
Have fun matching famous mothers with their creative baby names. To make this work through an online service like Zoom, each guest has a celebrity name (preferably given to them ahead of time) to impersonate. They begin by saying, “My child’s name is…” without using the actual name of the celebrity themselves. If you don’t want to assign the names ahead of time, use Zoom’s private message option to send each guest a name at the start of their turn.
8. Baby Jeopardy
One game that works so well on Zoom is baby jeopardy; you can share an interactive Google slide during your party with ease on Zoom. Check out our resources for this great game here.
9. What’s Your Advice?
While this is not necessarily a game, it does make a great add-on experience for the new parents. Ask guests to give advice for the new parents which can be recorded and saved for future reference.
10. Baby Shower Trivia
This is not a guessing game but it does require the guests to download the free Kahoot! app ahead of time or at least at the beginning of the virtual baby shower. You may want to do a bit of pre-planning before the event, but it is a new way to add more excitement to the gathering with a virtual baby shower trivia game.
11. Baby Prediction Submission
A fun guessing game, at the end of the virtual baby shower, have guests read aloud – or even just state at that moment – what they predict the birth date of the baby will be, along with the little one’s anticipated birth weight and length. The host can either write down the responses or have the guests email them. Once the baby arrives, the one with the most correct answers can have a prize mailed to them.
Note: If you want to edit the slides, you have to either make a copy or download them first.
How to Play Online Baby Shower Games: 3 Top Tips
So you’ve taken a look at our list of the best virtual baby shower games out there. But how do you actually play virtual games in the real world – and which platform is best for this?
We’ve highlighted some top tips for how to play baby shower games online, which software to use, and how best to organize your games and activities to make your virtual baby shower a resounding success!
1. Choose The Right App (Zoom)
After comparing a few online services, such as Google Meet, Facebook Live, and Zoom, we found that Zoom provides an easy-to-navigate platform that allows you to set up a free personal account. It’s easier than you might think, too!
Through its video conferencing computer program and app, you can invite your baby shower guests to come to the party and celebrate via their devices from the comfort of their own homes.
While Google Meet can stream events for up to 100,000 viewers, we doubt your remote baby shower will be that well-attended! Through its live stream, however, up to 250 people can participate in the event. Google Meet, however, tends to be a better platform for seminars, talks, and events such as employee training sessions.
Side-by-side, Zoom’s streaming application allows participants a more active online engagement experience. While Google Meet can accommodate more guests, it does not offer the YouTube and Facebook Live integrations that Zoom does that ensure guests can view the event from almost anywhere.
For an event that requires audience engagement, such as your upcoming remote baby shower, Zoom is the more practical choice. It simply offers a new way to have fun online…for free! Some quick facts:
- Host up to 100 people on the platform for FREE
- Access via smartphone or laptop/computer
- Host is able to mute and unmute guests as needed
- Easy interaction for everyone involved
2 . Organize Your Virtual Baby Shower Games
If you need some help organizing your Zoom call, the experts at WebBabyShower are on hand to help. We help you plan not only the perfect virtual baby shower but also help to make it fun, unique, joyful, and memorable.
Plus, at WebBabyShower, we have a variety of games right at your fingertips that you can incorporate directly into your remote baby shower, saving you the hassle of finding the best ones.
We’ve done the hard work for you, so all you have to do is enjoy and have fun.
These games can be played live or anytime you have guests visit your WebBabyShower website, and we have a live scoreboard for some friendly competition as well!
Choosing the right games to play at your long-distance baby shower is important. These online baby shower games you choose to play should not only get all your guests involved but also give them the opportunity to enjoy such a unique experience. With the help of the WebBabyShower platform, this will be as easy as 1-2-3.
3. Include Real Prizes!
While this is purely optional, awarding prizes can still be part of the fun with your online baby shower. It adds an element of excitement and makes the games feel all the more fun and engaging if guests know that they are competing for real prizes.
You can take advantage of the WebBabyShower invitation maker to send out emails to everyone announcing the winners after your Zoom call. Online gift cards are an easy and perfect choice for prizes, but you could be more adventurous if you don’t mind posting out gifts; check out our in-depth guide to baby shower prizes here.
WebBabyShower is the perfect add-on for your zoom call; having the scoreboard for each game on our games page helps with the prizes too!
