Planning a baby shower can be a lot of work, but one way to make the event even more fun is by including some entertaining games. And what better way to do that than with baby shower card games?

These games are easy to create and can provide hours of entertainment for your guests. In this article, we’ll show you how to make your own baby shower card games.

Materials Needed

Before we dive in, let’s go over the materials you’ll need:

  • Blank index cards or cardstock paper
  • Pens or markers
  • Scissors
  • Decorative stickers (optional)

Game #1: Baby Shower Bingo

Baby Shower Bingo is a classic game that’s always a hit at any baby shower. To make your own cards, follow these steps:

  1. Start by creating a list of common baby items such as “diapers,” “pacifiers,” “onesies,” and “bottles.”
  2. Using your pen or marker, write each item on an index card.
  3. Create as many cards as needed for the number of guests attending the shower.
  4. To play the game, distribute the cards to each guest and have them mark off each item as it’s called out during the shower.
  5. The first person to get five items in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) wins!

Tips:

  • You can also use cute animal pictures instead of words on your bingo cards for an extra touch.
  • If you want to reuse these cards for future showers, consider laminating them for durability.

Game #2: Guess the Baby Food

This game is perfect for foodies and is a great way to have some fun while also testing your guests’ taste buds. Here’s how to create your own baby food guessing game:

  1. Purchase several jars of baby food in various flavors.
  2. Using a pen or marker, write the name of each flavor on an index card and set it aside.
  3. Remove the labels from the jars of baby food so that guests can’t cheat by reading the names.
  4. Number each jar and set them out on a table with small spoons for tasting.
  5. Pass out the index cards with the flavor names to each guest and have them try to guess which flavor corresponds to each jar of baby food.
  6. The person with the most correct guesses wins!
  • If you want to make this game more challenging, mix two or more flavors together in one jar and see if guests can correctly identify all components in the mixture.
  • You can also make this game vegan-friendly by using plant-based baby food options.

Game #3: Diaper Raffle

While not technically a card game, this activity is sure to get everyone involved. Here’s how it works:

  1. Purchase some diapers and create tickets that guests can fill out with their name and contact information (Email address or phone number).
  2. Distribute one ticket to each guest along with instructions that they must bring a pack of diapers with them when they attend the shower in order to enter the raffle.
  3. Collect all the tickets in a basket and then draw one ticket. The person whose name is on the ticket wins a prize!
  • Consider having multiple raffles throughout the shower to keep guests engaged.
  • You can also offer prizes for second and third place winners to keep things interesting.

Conclusion

Creating your own baby shower card games can be a fun and easy way to make your event extra special. With just a few materials and some creativity, you’ll have your guests laughing and having a great time in no time!
