How to Play Baby Shower Charades!

Playing charades at a baby shower is a simple and delightful way to break the ice, get guests mingling, and create unforgettable memories. Here’s how to play this pared-down version:

Step 1: Prepare the Game

Write down baby-related words and phrases on separate slips of paper, and place them in a bowl or hat. Check out our free word list below for ideas to include. You can also grab a copy of our printable Baby Shower Charades. Just print and cut them out and you’re ready to go!

Step 2: Divide into Teams

Split your guests into two or more teams. Each team will take turns acting out and guessing the words or phrases.

Step 3: Act It Out

A player from the acting team draws a slip of paper from the bowl and acts out the word or phrase without speaking or making any sound. The goal is to convey the word or phrase through pantomime only.

Step 4: Guess the Phrase

The team members try to guess the word or phrase within a set time limit (typically 1-2 minutes). If they guess correctly, they score a point.

Step 5: Winning the Game

The team with the most points after all the words and phrases have been acted out wins the game. This simplified version of charades is easy for anyone to enjoy, regardless of their familiarity with the traditional charades hand signals.
