So you've planned a large baby shower, but you didn't realize how difficult it would be to find baby shower games for large groups!
I've been there!
I personally have been to a few large baby showers – I am Indian, so we tend to invite everyone & their mothers (literally).
Large baby showers take a lot of planning & preparation, which is fine when it comes to the food and decorations.
But, you don't have to spend a lot of time prepping for the baby shower games – especially if you choose printable baby shower games!
“Yes” to having a few games handy, but “NO” to spending a lot of time & energy collecting supplies or writing lists of celebrity baby names.
Baby Shower Games For Large Groups
Baby bingo is always a popular baby shower game for large groups because it's fun for your guests & SUPER easy for you!
It's not easy to keep all of your guests entertained at a large baby shower, but this quick & easy printable does.
Some guests will just sit back & relax while others (you know, the competitive ones!) will be watching intently for the win!
You can have more than one winner too, so game-play can continue for longer if your crowd is really fired up.
No prep needed – just download, print & play.
There are up to 100 different baby shower game cards with a variety of common baby shower gifts:

If you've ever played catchphrase (or watched Jimmy Fallon play catchphrase with his guests on The Tonight Show), you know how fun & FUNNY it is.
I created Baby Catchphrase & customized it for baby showers because it's a perfect baby shower game for large groups.
There are 128 game cards in all – 115 are pre-filled with different baby-related words and 13 are blank card for you to personalize for your mom-to-be (family members' names, where they live, new baby name or actual due date, how baby's parents met, etc).
All you need to do is print these baby catchphrase cards, have your guests get into 2 teams & set the timer.
Teams can be as large as you want & do not need to be the same size.
Choose one player to start & set the timer for 30 seconds. This player picks one card from the top of the pile and tries to get their team to guess the word or phrase that appears on the card. Keep picking cards until the 30 second timer runs out. The other team looks over their shoulder to make sure they don't actually say the word on the card.
Teams get 1 point for every correct answer before time is up. Then play switches to the other team & they get 30 seconds to get as many points as they can. Play as many rounds as you like until cards run out!
You can add in your own twist such as:
- Each player must use mom-to-be to describe the clue.
- Whoever answers the clue correctly gives the next clue (if you want your guests up & moving around).
- Set the timer for just 10 seconds for “lightening rounds”.
Guess Who? Mom Or Dad!
Start with these questions & add in your own!
- Who was a picky eater as a child?
- Who will sing lullabies better?
- Who is better in the kitchen?
- Who keeps their car cleaner?
- Who takes care of the finances?
- Who chose the nursery theme?
- Who spends the most money?
- Who is better with money?
- Who is more stubborn?
- Who will take more photos of the baby?
- Who will be the fun parent?
- Who will change more diapers?
- Who is more nervous about labor/delivery?
- Who usually drives?
- Who will teach baby to dance?
- Who said “I love you” first?
- Who takes out the trash?
- Who has more pairs of shoes?
Ask parents-to-be to answer these questions ahead of time or play LIVE with them during the baby shower.
BONUS: these mustaches & lips looks fantastic in photos!
Dirty Diaper Games
There are a number of different dirty diaper games.
The Price Is Right
What's In Your Purse
This hilarious game is a fantastic large baby shower game ice breaker.
Different generations will all love this game & everyone will have a good laugh at the surprising goodies to be discovered.
Pacifier Beer Pong
If you're having a younger crowd, this is silly twist on a classic party game.
Guests try to toss the pacifiers into the solo cups – filled with beer (or apple juice for mom-to-be).
This is the perfect game if you're planning a rowdy baby shower.
Baby Name Game
I'm obsessed with this Name The Baby Game.
The object of this baby shower game is to answer the questions with words that can also be baby names.
What Will Your Baby Look Like
Let your guests cut up photos of the new parents & rearrange them to see what the new baby might look like.
The most creative or hilarious prediction wins!
Blindfolded Baby Food Game
For this crazy funny game guests pair up.
One person is blindfolded and that blindfolded person has to feed an entire jar of baby food to her partner.
Record how long it takes to finish the jar & the pair with the fastest time wins.
This game is hilarious to watch & everyone will remember it long after the baby is born.

Pass The Present
This hilarious game is NOT messy.
You want to buy inexpensive gifts & wrap them in different sized boxes/bags. It's up to you how many gifts to get but the more the better. I recommend enough for half of the guests.
Gifts can be things like $5 Starbucks gift cards or scratch off tickets or sweets.
You also will need something to track the time, like this seriously cute timer.
Divide the gifts up evenly among different tables.
Give each table 2 dice & set a timer for 5-8 minutes.
All the tables start rolling the dice, one person at a time & then passes it to the next person.
When someone rolls a double number they run and grab a gift from another table. Once all the gifts are taken then the people start stealing gifts from the people at other tables.
When the timer goes off, whoever has a gift gets to keep it!
This is a great ice breaker game to get everyone excited & interacting with each other.
This is a SUPER cute game for a boy's theme.
Here are Pros & Cons to pre-printing your baby shower game for a LARGE group.
You can customize them to YOUR baby shower – nice touch!
They come already printed, so you don't have to print them at home (or at work!).
These require planning ahead of time to make sure the arrive in plenty of time.
These are more expensive – especially when you need baby shower games for LARGE groups.
Along with games, I love a good photo booth to entertain the guests! These seem to be everywhere now -because they are cute & funny & create lasting memories. I love these baby shower photo booth props – completely personalized for mom-to-be!
Not sure whether the new baby is a boy or a girl?
You're covered if you get 1 set of each – which you probably want anyway for that large baby shower crowd! Luckily there are lots to choose from & you can mix & match sets.
Here are more photo booth prop ideas.
And if you ARE going with a trendy photo station, these customized backdrops are gorgeous, easy & make a great keepsake for mom-to-be.
