Baby Trivia Questions for Fun Baby Shower Games

Sharing is caring!

Playing a baby trivia game is a fun way to test your guests’ knowledge while celebrating the new baby and mommy-to-be. You might learn some interesting information too! Here we are sharing a list of the best baby trivia questions for a fun baby shower game.

How to Use Trivia Questions at a Baby Shower

Not only is trivia fun for many different people, it’s also a great game that can be played in person or during virtual baby showers. Each guest can play alone, or you might mix it up by dividing the guests into small groups and setting a time limit to see who can answer the most baby shower questions in the limited amount of time. 

I went to a shower recently where half the guests were in person and half were attending virtually. We used Kahoot, which is a free tool used to make all sorts of trivia quiz games and just as easy to use as a guest as it is for the party throwers to create. There were even some trivia questions about the new parents too, which was a great way to get to know the parents-to-be more.

Also, who doesn’t love a bit of competition?

The great thing about Kahoot is it kept track of the baby shower guests on the leader board and we knew who got the prize, which of course is part of every special baby shower function! 

You can make this a printable game with a list of the trivia questions on paper for each guest, or you may just use blank paper for guests to write their answers and you read the trivia questions aloud.

Here we have our list of questions (and answers) of interesting facts about babies. Down below, you’ll find another list with questions specific to the expectant parents. You may choose to use questions from one list or the other, or pull a few fun questions from each list!
