How to Play Baby Shower Charades

The Setup

Before the laughter begins, make sure you’ve got everything you need. Gather your friends and family, and set up a designated area for the game. All you need are some slips of paper, pens, a bowl, and a touch of creativity.

Creating the Charades

Get everyone involved by asking guests to write down baby-related words, phrases, or actions on individual slips of paper. Encourage them to think outside the box – from diaper changing antics to lullaby-singing, to pink or blue, the possibilities are endless! Once the slips are ready, fold them and place them in a bowl, ready for the big reveal.

The Rules

Explain the rules to your excited group. Keep it simple! Divide the guests into two teams, and take turns drawing a slip from the bowl. Without speaking or making any sounds, the player must act out the word or phrase on the slip while their team tries to guess within a time limit. Hilarity is sure to ensue as everyone attempts to decipher the baby-themed antics.
