"The bond between a parent and child is the primary bond, the foundation for the rest of the child's life. The presence or absence of this bond determines much about the child's resiliency and what kind of adult they will grow up to be."
― Jane Fonda
Planning a baby shower is no easy feat. Which means the hostess, you, my dear, will have some work cut out for you. Right from sending the invitations to organizing entertaining games and activities for the guests, every element requires your special attention. Keeping that in mind, we thought you might be on the lookout for some exciting games, and we wanted to help. As you read through the article, you will find 10 printable games that will be a hit among everyone.

First and foremost, you need to print the cards for every game. To do so, click on the game you wish to print. Choose either the landscape or portrait option (specifications mentioned for every game) on your printer to obtain an enlarged version of the games. Secondly, print at least 3 - 4 extra cards for every game; just to be on the safe side so you may not run out of cards. Some of the printouts contain two copies of that particular game, hence reducing the number of pages used for each game.
