Give your Baby Shower a fun flair by playing Baby BINGO, which is a traditional yet, an extremely entertaining game for everyone.
There are several versions of Bingo that you can play.
Baby Shower Gift Bingo
What you will need: Bingo stock cards and pencils. Print out enough stock cards so each guest gets one. Slips of paper with the names of 30 typical baby gifts on them. A bag, basket or little box to hold the slips.
To Do: On each Bingo Card fill in the names of typical baby shower gifts. Make sure to put the names of the gifts in different spots on the card – otherwise everyone would win at the same time!
How to play: When the guests have settled in, hand each one of them a preprinted Baby Shower Bingo card and pencils. As you pull out the slips of paper from the bag, ask the guests to mark off each item on the card. The first guest to have five in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) shouts out ‘Baby Bingo’ and wins a prize.
Another option is gifts from the registry.
Fill in the names of gifts mentioned in the registry onto the blank Bingo stock card, each in a different order.
How to play: As each gift is opened, if a guest has that item in one of the squares, ask them to mark it off. The first guest to have five in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) shouts out ‘Baby Bingo’ and wins a prize.
Its lots of fun and keeps all eyes on the parents-to-be as they open gifts.
Baby Shower Bingo ‘Make Your Own’
What you will need: A master list (gift or baby names, actions, or just about anything!) Blank Bingo Stock cards and pencils.
Preparation: Print out enough stock cards so each guest gets one.
How to play: During the shower, hand each guest a stock card. Call out the items from the master list. Instruct the guests to fill out their Bingo card with each item that you read in any square of their choosing onto their card.
Now for the FUN PART!
From the Diaper bag, or bassinet ask the mommy-to-be to draw out one slip at a time and call out the word aloud. Ask the guests to mark off each item on the card. The first guest to have five in a row shouts out ‘Baby Bingo’ and wins a prize.
