How do you make baby shower card games?
Let’s get straight to it: here are our favorite free printable baby shower games, along with the answers below, just in case.
Just right-click, copy the image, and paste it using whichever program you want to print it from (you can also scale it to whatever size you like, but we find A4 tends to be best).
So take your pick, or go for three or four, however many you want!
1. Baby Bingo
Baby Bingo is a winner and can be enjoyed by all ages.
It’s hard not to get excited as you inch closer to being the one who gets to shout out BINGO!
There are two ways to play:
If a gift registry is set up, create a bingo card with the registered items on it.
For example, if you know that the mama-to-be will be getting diapers, crib sheets, and bottle cleaners, each of these items should fill a square on your bingo sheet.
Then, as the mama-to-be opens her presents, the guests get to check off the items as each one is revealed.
To keep things flexible, here’s our very own Peanut Bingo Card for you to print out and fill in.
Remember to shuffle up the words in the grid so each person has a unique card.

Okay, this one requires no printing and is guaranteed to create some giggles.
There’s only one rule to this game: You are not allowed to say the word “baby.”
When your guests arrive, give them each a safety pin.
They need to pin it to their clothes.
If they are caught saying the word “baby” at any point during the shower, they have to give up their pins.
Whoever is left with a pin at the end of the party gets a prize.

What can I print baby shower games on?
Among the spills and thrills of baby shower festivities, it may be hard keeping more fragile pieces of paper intact.
Opting for cardstock may be the way to handle potential wear and tear.
How many games should you play at a baby shower?
Good news here ‒ there’s no one way to do this.
Whether you play one game or ten is entirely up to you.
For many showers, the sweet spot is often around two or three.
So fitting in more than that might be tough.
And there you have it!
Just add cardstock and fun is bound to ensure.
