Yes, you CAN have virtual baby shower games even if you decide to host a long distance baby shower.
As I write this, we are currently in the middle of the pandemic.
Of course babies are still coming, whether we can be together to celebrate or not.
For my own family, we’ve started celebrating more virtual events together.
Since we all live far apart, we could always have had these virtual events together before.
But now that we’re social distancing, we appreciate spending time together so much more.
I think this virtual party trend will continue with family & friends all around the world wanting to connect.
If you’re looking for fun & easy ideas, these baby shower games are perfectly adapted to your virtual baby shower.
We’ve got you covered no matter what circumstances are pushing you to come up with virtual baby shower games.

Let me know in the comment below.
Who Knows Mommy Best?
This is a fun & easy long distance baby shower game.
You can ask these questions about the mother-to-be & have guests write down their answers.
Your questions can be as tame or funny as you think your audience would like.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Where was she born?
- What’s her favorite movie?
- What are her cravings?
- What’s her favorite TV show?
- What’s her favorite dessert?
- What was her first job?
- What’s her favorite hobby?
- How many children does she want?
- What’s the nursery color/theme?
- When is her due date?
- What’s her favorite drink?
The winner is the person who knows her best & gets the most answers correct.
During the shower, let everyone guess the time & day the baby will be born.
You can even include height & weight guesses.
Record all of the answers & then the prize goes to the person who guessed the closest correct answer once the baby arrives.
Finish That Rhyme
Type the line to a nursery rhyme or say it on live video and have your guests try and guess the next line.
The first to get it right, gets a point.
The one with the most points at the end, wins a prize, or just wins – however you choose to do it.
Baby Room Tour
Have your guests send in paintings they did with the baby in mind.
If you have certain colors you’re using or a theme, make sure they know this ahead of time.
You can also have them send decor or something they made by hand, etc.
Put these up in the baby room and then do a live video and do a virtual tour of the room decorated with the items they sent.
Name That “Baby” Tune
Have people post a list of as many songs with the word “baby” in it they can think of.
Give them a time limit and tell them it has to be in one list, not posted separately, as that can get messy.
The one with the most songs wins!
Not convinced there are many songs with “baby” in the title?
Who’s That Baby?
Ask family & friends to send you pictures of themselves as babies BEFORE the virtual baby shower.
You’ll definitely want to include close family like parents, grandparents, and other important relatives like aunts, uncles, etc.
Sending pictures to you needs to be simple – just ask them to use their phones to take a picture & then send it to you.
Hold up each photo on your phone during the virtual baby shower to have your party goers guess who it is.
You can also post pictures of the photos in your event if you’re not doing video and have people guess that way.
Guess How Many
This is a classic game and one that can still be done online and virtually.
You can do it however you choose, but have a lot of one item and either show it on video or post a picture of it.
Have shower goers guess how many there are of the item for a chance to win.
This can be a baby bottle full of candy, a bucket full of rocks, who cares – it’s whatever you choose.
Name That Baby (Two Ways)
This can be done in more than one way.
You could use animal themes, cartoons, or celebrities.
For the animal version, put up a list of animals and have people respond and guess the actual name of that animal’s baby.
For example, a goat’s baby is called a kid.
For the cartoon version, put up pictures in the discussion or hold up the photos on live video of famous cartoon mothers, and ask your guests to name the baby of the mother.
Same idea for celebrity baby names – name the celebrity & have your guests guess their baby name (the crazier, the better).
When you create your online event, make sure everyone has the address of mom-to-be & invite them to send a package of diapers to enter the raffle.
In order for guests enter the drawing, their diapers must arrive before the day of the baby shower.
Each pack of diapers is equal to one raffle ticket.
You can do the drawing on live video or simply announce the winner how you please – this is up to you.
Name Our Baby
Have guests text or email you with their guesses for the new baby’s name.
Anonymously read out the guesses during the shower & have guests guess which baby names were submitted by which guest.
There are so many fun games that can be played when it comes to a virtual baby shower.
You can always take games everyone is familiar with & tweak them to be online-friendly.
There’s something about having a familiar, classic & fun game that brings everyone together, even when they have to physically be apart.
I hop this list gets your wheels turning.
It IS possible to include virtual baby shower games & have them be both easy AND fun for your long distance baby shower.
