Printable Baby Shower Taboo Game:
You’ve probably played Taboo during a game night before, here’s a Baby Shower Taboo game. Divide the guests into two teams and have someone draw a card. She needs to get her team to say the word at the top of the card, but she can’t say the 5 words below it as she describes.
Make it a race-each team has 1 minute to guess as many as they can and then it’s the other team’s turn.
Here’s the PDF file for you to print.

Printable Baby Shower Gift Bingo Game:
The main event at a baby shower is ooohing and ahhhing over the gifts, so it’s easy to make this part a game too.
To play this baby shower bingo game, simply print as many cards as you need, then have guests fill out what they think the mom to be will get when she opens the gifts. For example, books, onesies, pajamas, blankets, diapers, or whatever else they suspect might be wrapped in those gifts. Have the fill in each square (they can have duplicates if they want).
Just open the PDF of your choice and print!
