With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world, and social distancing measures being enforced, we are operating as a society online now more than ever. Baby showers are an occasion that many parents-to-be look forward to, and whilst we may not be able to celebrate this joyous occasion in person, we can still celebrate it virtually (via video chat on apps like Zoom or Skype) whilst we enjoy the presence of our family and friends.
First, you’ll need to invite all of your relatives, and whilst you may not be able to do it in person- posting personalised invitations, to all of your loved ones, is a wonderful way to invite them to the joyful virtual baby shower meet-up. Once you’ve invited all of your loved ones (don’t forget your mother-in-law!), you need to start preparing for the big event, first, by choosing which video chatting platform to use (e.g. Zoom or Skype) and next, by choosing a theme for your baby shower! Once you’ve done all of that, and each of your guests has dropped off/posted their gift, it’s time to start planning the games! If you are a guest who needs help finding gifts for the parents-to-be, we have gathered a selection of beautiful personalised gifts just for you, which you can access by clicking right here.
Of course, due to the pandemic, your usual baby shower games won’t necessarily work, so here are nine party games to play during your virtual baby shower to make it extra fun!
MyBump2Baby’s list of Virtual Baby Shower Games;
Don’t say “Baby”!
It’s a good idea to set up this party game at the beginning of your virtual baby shower and continue all the way through. Every time one of your guests says “Baby” they are given a point, and the one with the least points at the end of the virtual baby shower wins. Everybody’s points will soon start stacking up, after all, all of your virtual guests will be gushing about the baby! If you think keeping track of the word “baby” will be a little too tricky, you can choose another word like “bump” or “nappy” instead!
Guess the Bump!
This fun party game is called “Guess the Bump!”
It’s simple, yet it can be very entertaining. Everybody takes a piece of paper and a pen and writes down what size they think the bump is at the moment. The expecting-mother will then take a measuring tape and measure the bump to get the correct size. As tempting as it may be, no cheating ladies! Whoever’s guess is closest to the correct measurement will win. Further additions to the game can be to guess the due date and weight of the baby for extra points or prizes.
Find the baby item!
This is the perfect party game to get your guests engaged. It’s fun, fast-paced and competitive and gets everyone up and moving around.
Here’s an example of how the game will work:
The host will announce something like: “The baby needs a blanket!” and then the guests will frantically run around trying to find a blanket. The last party guest to return to the video call with a blanket will be eliminated. The idea of the game is to choose items that are associated with having a baby but anybody could have.
For example, a list of items to include could be:
· Something to carry the baby in
Bingo is a hit at virtual baby showers!
You can find plenty of free printable baby shower bingos online and share them with your party guests. Play along and the first guest to have all of their baby-bingo items read out and then yell “Baby Bingo!” wins.
You can find some great free baby shower bingo cards on the website below:
This is the perfect opportunity to see your guests’ creativity put to the test. Challenge them to create the best arts and craft baby, whether it be with play dough or other items you can find around the house. If you don’t have any arts and crafts supplies, another option is to do a blind-draw-a-baby with a pen and paper and let them release their inner artist. Whoever creates the best (or funniest) baby wins! This game is one of the most hilarious virtual baby shower games there is!
This is a brilliant party game, whatever the occasion and is great fun both virtually and in person! Note down a list of baby-related words for your guests to act out, whilst the rest of the party guests guess the answers. It’s a lot of ridiculous fun!
Who’s that baby?
It’s time to explore the glorious (or embarrassing) youthful days of your virtual baby shower guests with the “Who’s that baby?” game! The guests simply email images of themselves as babies to the host (the funnier, the better), for the host to display on the screen, and then the other virtual baby shower guests will then have to guess who the baby pictures are of. You’ll have a lot of fun as everyone guesses which baby photo belongs to which guest!
The Price is Right – Virtual Baby Shower Edition
This baby shower game is simple, entertaining and can also be a very educational experience too! Just like on the show, the guests will have to guess the prices of various baby items (that the host shows on the video chat) as accurately as possible without going over. To make it easier, you can find lists of baby items online. The idea of the game is for the host to announce the name of the item as well as its details (for example, if it were a bottle of baby shampoo, you’d say the brand and how big it is) and then the guests will have a minute to write down how much they think the item is worth. After the time limit has been hit, the guests show their answers to the host. The one with the closest answer wins!
Guess the Baby Song!
Test your guests’ knowledge of songs with the “Guess the Baby Song” game. The goal of this game is for the guests to guess the name of the baby-themed tune from a short clip ten-second clip of the song, whether it be “Baby” by Justin Bieber or “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears. Get your guests to write down their answers and hold them up to the screen. The one with the most correct answers wins!
