Here are my favorite free printable baby shower games. I wanted to provide a quick and easy way for you to get them. Here it is...Just click on any game from the list and it will open up ready for you to print and use.
Baby Bingo includes thirty different bingo cards and the caller's sheet.
These printable baby shower games are best when printed on card stock. This allows for an easier writing surface. When using regular printing paper, be sure to have enough magazines or other solid surface available for each guest. I also like to "check" my pens to make sure they all work before the guest arrive. And have a few extra's waiting just in case. It is not much fun searching for a pen when the game has already begun.
You don't need to be an expert to plan a great baby shower. Just follow this easy to do list:
3 weeks in advance
1. Make a shopping list of everything you need. Be sure to review your invitation, decoration, food, punch, games and favor choices to make a complete list. Carry this list with you and purchase items as convenient.
2. Order the party favors if not making these by hand.
2 weeks in advance
1. Create and deliver the invitations.
2. Continue finding the items from your shopping list.
1 week in advance

The Day Before

Many people come to this site looking for a couple specific games. When they find them, great, the job is done. But there is one thing I want ALL my guests to know regardless of how many or how few pages they read. Therefore, if you see this box again on a few more pages, skip it and move on to finding more games for your event.
But for those reading this for the first time, here is the best advice I can pass on from my many years of experience planning and executing large and small events. Read on…
“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” These are great words from A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. I couldn’t agree more. And a solid foundation of organizing and planning is needed for most events. But I am here to tell you even with the BEST organization, no event is going to proceed EXACTLY as planned. You may even have a Plan B, C or D as a back-up. That’s fabulous! But trust me on this one; something will happen that you had no way of anticipating. So what now? Here is the trick. Pay close attention to this because it is the single most important piece of wisdom I can share with my readers.
Are you ready?
That’s it. I could write an entire page on how to “be in the moment” and “have fun at your own party.” But neither of those will happen if you don’t have the mindset that it’s alright to have things turn out differently than you imagined. The good news is that usually what you planned in your head that didn’t come through was never even missed by most.
So if you are going along, playing a game, or any other group activity, and it leads you down a road you didn’t foresee… Enjoy the ride.
