Celebrity Moms and Dads

Animal Babies Match
This game asks guests to tap into their knowledge of the animal kingdom. Can they match the adult animal with the name of its young? It’s harder than you think.
And Mommy Wore
How good are your guests’ skills of observation? Have the new mom to be leave the room. Hand out these sheets and ask guests questions about her appearance. The one who has noticed the most wins.
Baby’s Beautiful Reflection
Everyone wants their best traits passed on to their baby. This hysterical game has traits listed. Everyone marks down whether they think the baby will get that trait from their mom or dad.

This game asks guests to match famous TV parents with their on-screen offspring. It’s funny to see just how many guests can accurately remember.
This game has guests racing to be the first to name 26 things that relate to baby—one for every letter of the alphabet.
In addition to these online printables, you can print your own games using your own computer. Tailor your games to the mom to be. If you’re having a co-ed baby shower, include the names of both parents. You can invite people to give their advice to the new parents by offering a decorated card to write their pearls of wisdom on.
Using any kind of program you have, such as Microsoft Word, you can create hilarious game sheets. Make up games using the name, likes and dislikes of the mom to be. If you know what the baby is going to be named, you can design a game around it. Use colors or animals that the mom has chosen for the nursery theme as part of your game. And the more you get everyone involved, the more fun it will be.
