"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. 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.

WHO SAID WHAT
Baby shower game
How to play the game

Once you print the cards for this game, you will see that we haven't provided any answers. Your job as a hostess is to interview the expecting parents and write down the answers. On the day of the shower, the guests have to guess which parent gave that particular answer.
Important Tip:
If you're planning on organizing other games and activities during the shower, make sure they don't embarrass either the mom-to-be or the guests. Host the party in such a way that it helps break the ice (especially if guests don't know each other), is entertaining, and memorable for all.
