About Baby Shower Trivia Games
If you’ve ever been to a baby shower function, you probably played a few party games. In my experience, trivia games are always one of the best games. Everyone has a chance to win and they take up a good amount of time.
Don’t forget the prizes! You’ll need some prizes for the winners of your trivia games. Check out these baby shower prizes that guests actually love.
How Do You Play Baby Shower Trivia Games?
You can run your trivia games however you’d like. In most cases, baby shower guests play individually and are each given a sheet of paper with the trivia questions. You may prefer to set them up into small groups depending on the type of trivia.
There is a time limit to answer all of the questions. Whoever gets the most correct answers is the winner. There may be multiple winners or a tiebreaker depending on the predetermined rules.
What Types of Questions Should You Use For Baby Shower Trivia?
The type of questions you use for your trivia games depends on the game you are playing and who the guests are. When choosing which type of questions to ask, consider who is going to be attending and what the theme of the baby shower is.
For example, if you are having a woodland baby shower, you could play a trivia game about animals and their babies.
If most of the guests are close to the mom-to-be, then you can play games like “How Well Do You Know Mom?” and ask trivia questions about her. But, this game wouldn’t be great if most of the guests are distant friends and relatives who wouldn’t know the answers.
It’s always safe to play something like a baby trivia game where each guest has an equal opportunity to win. In this case, you’d ask generic baby trivia questions such as what the average weight of a newborn is or how long the average pregnancy is.
It’s hard to go wrong with a trivia game. So, don’t worry too much about the questions you use. The most important thing is that the expecting mom is happy and has fun. You can run the game by her ahead of time if you are planning the shower for her.
How Many Questions Should You Ask in a Trivia Game for a Baby Shower?
A baby shower trivia quiz is generally 10-20 questions long. However, you can add as many questions as you’d like. Just make sure that you allot for the amount of time it will take to play the game.
Also, guests won’t want to feel like they are taking a long test, so make sure that there aren’t too many hard questions that take time to ponder. If you’re playing a “Mom or Dad” trivia game, then you might add more questions since the answer is either “Mom” or “Dad”. But, if you’re playing baby facts trivia, you might make the game shorter so it doesn’t feel like an exam.
