Elephant Baby Shower Ideas for Games


Elephant Baby Shower Bingo

Our baby elephant bingo game involves the players filling in their sheets with the gifts they predict the mom-to-be will receive. Once she unwraps her gifts, the winner will be the person who guessed and laid out their bingo sheet the best.

Guess How Many?

Get nutty with your guests! Fill a jar full of peanuts and display it on a table with pens, paper, and a container for each guest’s guess to go in. Have each player write down their name and how many peanuts they think are in the jar. The player with the closest guess wins!

An Elephant Never Forgets Memory Game

Scientists have determined that elephants have incredible powers of recollection. In keeping with the theme, let’s see which of your baby shower guests has the best memory. Place baby items or gifts on a tray for everyone to see. Have it set up on a table or walk around with the tray to let your guests take a peek. But don’t tell them it’s a game just yet! Once everyone has had the chance to see the tray, you can hand out pens and paper for your guests to write down what they remember at any time during the shower. Whoever remembers the most items wins!


Elephant Baby Shower Ideas for Snacks
