Baby Pictionary

Object: Guess the drawings of fellow partiers to get points and win!

Materials: Bowl of folded pieces of paper with baby related subjects on them, pads of paper, pencils and pens, prizes for winning team members.

Subject ideas:

  • Babbling
  • Baby
  • Baby lotion
  • Baby monitor
  • Baby wipes
  • Bib
  • Bottle
  • Changing table
  • Crawling
  • Crib
  • Crying
  • Diaper
  • First steps
  • Grandma/Grandpa
  • Highchair
  • Lullaby
  • Mobile
  • Nipple
  • Onesie
  • Pacifier
  • Rattle
  • Receiving blanket
  • Rubber duck
  • Spit up
  • Swaddling
  • Teddy bear
  • Teething ring
  • Tired
  • Wet diaper

How to play: Divide into two or more teams. Teams should have at least three people on them. During a round, one person from each team is the artist, while the others are the guessers. At the beginning of the round, one artist picks out a subject from the bowl and shares it with the artists from the other team(s). All teams should be trying to guess the same subject during a round. Then, the artists draw that subject to try to get the guessers on their team to identify the subject. You can’t write any words or numbers. Artists must do this while only drawing objects. The first team to guess the subject earns a point. There must be a new artist for the next round. You can play to as many points as you wish.


Optional: You can also have the rounds timed. Give the drawers 30 seconds to draw their object. If none of the teams guess the answer in the allotted time, it’s a redo and the artists pick another subject and start over.

    One that I did was took 6 quaters unwrapped, you had to place them between your knees walk 3 feet at try to drop all of them into a open bottle. It go really competative and hilarious

  3. I am excited to have my baby shower at the end of the month, but I hate baby shower games! Instead, my friends are having a diaper raffle and a beer pong tournament with a $5 entry fee. The winner gets a gift basket (donated by our best friend) and we get the proceeds to go shopping for anything we might need last minute for our little guy. Now this sounds fun!! =]

    Love the pictonary game! Another shower game is giving everyone a piece of paper and writing the baby’s name on the top (first and last) then giving everyone an alloted amount of time to come up with as many words as one can using the letters of the baby’s name…it was fun!

    I do not like the game with the ribbon. I would prefer not to have everyone touch me like that. If I had it to do over we would have cut a piece of ribbon the size of my belly and compared ribbons.. or just skipped that particular game. I ended up with a cold.

    At my baby shower, we played How well do you know mommy game, the game with the string or ribbon and people had to guess how big around you were, and the envelope game where you have people write their name and address on the envelopes for the thank you cards and pick one or two out of a basket.

    i went to a friend’s baby shower last weekend and they smeared different candy bars in diapers and you had to guess what kind of candy bar was in the diaper by smelling or tasting it… it was pretty gross at first but funny
