Everything from the newest games to the time-tested favorites, including free printable shower games, activities, and ideas for prizes.

Every woman who has ever planned a baby shower knows how games really set the tone for the party. The only problem is that there are

so many great shower games and so little time!

Don't Worry!
I have hand-picked each game and clearly explained each one including: what you will need, how the game is played, and for what groups the game would be most appropriate.

Here are several categories of free baby shower games to choose from to help you narrow your search for the best games that will make your baby shower PERFECT:

baby shower activities Baby Shower Activities
These are not really games, but activities with everyone participating and they are meaningful to the expectant mother. Some of these include sharing thoughts or baby advice in a fun way.


How to Choose the Perfect Games for Your Baby Shower:

Every group at a baby shower is different. Some are family only, some are for friends, some are for church groups, coworkers, or friends of the grandmother-to-be. And some are for everybody (including the men).

So, you need to think of the specific group of people that will be invited to the baby shower. Are they close friends? Or distant relatives? Are there some whose feelings are hurt easily? Are there some who are older or have disabilities that prevent them from physically active games? Do you want a boisterous atmosphere? Or more of a relaxed, formal atmosphere?

Now, with these people in mind, let's choose the perfect games for your baby shower from the list above.

One consideration to remember when planning your baby shower and choosing your games is that some women do not like competition. They don't like forcing someone else to lose or they don't like to feel inferior to others.

Now, the games that are played at a baby shower are meant to be fun and good natured, and most women understand that. But to be safe ask the expectant mother for her approval of the games that you choose.


Best Wishes on Planning & Hosting Your Baby Shower!
