Baby animals game
New babies are wonderful, no matter what species. Who can resist the cuteness of a baby lion, or a baby seal? Even baby skunks are kind of cute.
But, what do you call them?
That’s the crux of the Baby Animals Shower Game. You hand out a sheet of paper an ask each guest to write down the name of each kind of baby animal. Is it a pup? A kitten? A cygnet?
There are several ways to play this game. You can let guests race and see who can fill in all the blanks first. However, depending on your guest list, you may have a group of people that simply don’t know what to call a baby spider. This might lead to frustration with the game.
To prevent any frustration of this nature, try setting a time limit on the game. Tell your guests that they have three to five minutes to fill out the sheet. Set a clock, an egg timer, or set the alarm on your phone. If someone finishes before the timer goes off, check the answers they give against the answer sheet. If they have them all correct, they win, otherwise the rest of the group keeps playing.
Whether or not you choose to tell the player which answer is wrong is completely up to you. You can also send them back to check their answers and figure it out for themselves.
When the timer goes off, you can either ask everyone to turn in their papers, or you can read out the correct answers and ask everyone to announce their number of correct. The one with the most correct answers wins the prize.
Since this is a game about baby animals, consider purchasing a small stuffed baby animal as a prize.
