Have you ever experienced the last-minute panic of needing one last baby shower game?

This happened to me recently. I was looking for something fun to do at a friend’s shower that was clean and family-friendly, so that all ages could participate.

I hate the feeling of being unprepared, and not having enough activities planned. I had a mental image of those get-togethers where everyone just sits and stares at their phones in boredom. Ugh!

Since I didn’t quite find what I was looking for on the internet – not for free, anyhow – I decided to create my own baby shower trivia quiz questions.

It turns out that there are so many fun (and wild) facts about babies and pregnancy; many that I had never heard of before!

And now I’m sharing this big list of trivia questions with you, so that YOU can avoid the last-minute procrastination scramble for your baby shower soiree.
