You can use the free printable (which is also available in my Resource Library here) or if you don’t have access to a printer you can simply read a list of baby items out loud to your guests and have them write their guesses on notebook paper, scrap paper, wipe off boards, or whatever you have on hand.
There are two free printable baby shower games featuring emojis that will be a fun addition to your baby shower. The first is a nursery rhyme guessing game. And the second will have your guests guessing the titles of well known children’s books.

Free Baby Shower Games Using Stuff You Already Have
4. Name that Tune Baby Shower Edition
To play Name that Tune Baby Shower Game you will need to create a playlist of songs and then set up a way to play them. To play the game you play the first 10 seconds of each song on your list. And guests write down their guess for the name of each song.
You can create any playlist you want for this game but to keep it on theme for your baby shower consider one of these two ideas.
Idea#1 Create a playlist of well-known songs with the word “baby” in the title. There are lists you can use all over the internet. And I bet you can come up with enough for a list of ten or so just off the top of your head. (Ice, Ice, Baby, Baby Got Back, Hit Me, Baby, One More Time…).
Idea#2 Create a playlist of well-known lullabies. Then play the first 10 seconds of each lullaby for your guests to guess the names.
Whichever way you decide to play this baby shower game, choose well-known songs that a good number of people will recognize if you want to avoid a lot of blank stares during the game.
5. Who’s That Baby?
Although this is a free baby shower game it does require a little help from your baby shower guests to make it happen.
To play “Who’s That Baby?”, ask each of your guests to bring a baby picture of themselves to the shower. Or give it to you at some earlier time if it’s convenient.
Then, during the shower display the photos with a number assigned to each photo. Have your guests guess who is the baby in each picture.
If your shower includes a large group of people who don’t know each other there is an alternative version of the game. You can use pictures of the mom-to-be, the dad-to-be, and then a few random ones of your own or other people who know.
Then have guests guess which baby pictures are of the mom and dad to be.
6. Most Popular Baby Names Baby Shower Game
This is another super simple free baby shower game. To play the game, do a little internet research and find the most popular baby names in a given year. A good place to start is the year the mom-to-be was born. But any year will do.
Make lists of the top ten names for girls and the top ten names for boys in your chosen year. Then add a handful of random names to each list. Now ask your guests to pick out the correct top ten names for your chosen year.
You may want to type up your lists and print copies so that guests can simply circle the ten names on each list. Or you can read the names out loud or post them where guests can write down their ten best guesses.
The person who gets the most names correct for your chosen year is the winner.
7. Baby Shower Charades
Charades is a fun free baby shower game that works really well with a smaller shower. And everybody knows how to play charades so it’s easy to get the game started.
As the host, you write a bunch of baby related words on scraps of paper, fold them up and put them in a bowl. Players will draw one of the pieces of paper and act out the word they find.
Think words like breastfeeding, diaper change, baby bottle, water breaking, baby shower, car seat, etc. This is usually a fun baby shower game that will have guests laughing. And is one of my favorite funny baby shower games that is free.
8. Songs About Baby Shower Game
Another baby shower game related to music. But this game is easier to set up than Name That Tune. All you need to do is give each guest a paper and pen. Then have them list out every song they can think of with the word “baby” in the title.
Songs like “Baby Got Back”, “Ice, Ice Baby”, “Baby, it’s Cold Outside”, etc. There are lists of songs with “baby” in them all over the internet so don’t let anybody look at their phone.
But keep yours handy in case you need to check someone’s answers and make sure a song they listed actually exists.
9. Draw a Baby
For this baby shower game, give each guest a paper and pencil. They then need to draw a picture of a baby without looking.
There are a couple of ways to do this. You can simply ask guests to close their eyes when they’re drawing. If you have a small group you might have scarves for blindfolds. Or you can give each guest a magazine and have them tuck their paper inside and draw with it covered by the magazine cover.
The person who draws the best baby (as judged by the mom-to-be) without looking wins.
10. Name the Baby Animal
To prepare for this game do a quick internet search to find the correct names for the babies of a list of ten to twenty animals.
Give your guests paper and pen. And read through your list of animals while your guests write down what they think the animals’ offspring are called.
Examples include owlet for owls, fawn for deer, joey for kangaroo, etc. You can make the game as easy or hard as you want depending on the animals you choose. I like to go with a mix of easy and hard.
11. Baby Name Race
This game is a race to see which of your guests can come up with a baby name for each letter of the alphabet the fastest.
Give your guests paper and pen and they’re off to races!
