Baby Shower Alphabet Game

My contribution to the shower is this game that my friend Rachel taught me.  I use it at every baby shower that I throw.  You’ve all heard of the alphabet game where guests are given a list A-Z, and then they have to write down as many baby items that they can think of for each letter.  Well, this is a little bit of a twist on that.  I like it because it gets people talking to each other, and you don’t need to pass out a bunch of pens and pencils.  For this version of the game, only the mom-to-be writes down a baby item for each letter.  Get this from her ahead of time.  When you play the game, you will need that list and alphabet cards A-Z.  I’ve provided it as a free printable baby shower game here.  You can download them as a PDF file or Silhouette print and cut files.

Free Printable Baby Shower Game - An new way to play the alphabet game!The host of the game starts out by calling out the letter “A” and everyone in the room shouts out baby items that start with “A”.  The first person that says the item that is on the list gets the card.  If everyone seems stumped, you can give hints.  Keep going with all of the letters, and the person with the most cards at the end wins!  Easy and Fun!  You can collect all of the cards at the end of the game and use them for future baby showers as well.

  1. Oh wow! I’ve been playing a lot of baby shower games lately, but this one takes the cake for being the most creative and interactive! I love it, Jessica! And I’m truly surprised beyond belief by this incredible love-fest you gals have thrown for me today. Way to make this mom-to-be feel super special! Sending a big virtual hug your way. And I can’t wait to use this shower game idea at the next baby shower I get to host!

  2. This sounds like a lot of fun. I love that it’s loud and quick paced (I can hear the laughter now as answers become more and more comical on that one letter no one can guess). No silent room full of heads down as pencils scratch. Thanks for sharing the idea!

  3. This is such a fun twist on this game! And I love that it gets all the guests talking and laughing – that’s always a good thing 🙂
