My mom and I helped with my sister-in-law’s baby shower a few months back, and one of the things we were in charge of were the games. I know how popular Baby Mad Libs are, so I decided to put together our own DIY Baby Shower Mad Libsfor the party.
I actually created the entire thing from scratch, so I had to test it out with a friend first. Via text, I gave her the parts of speech, she texted them back to me, and I sent it to her filled out. It was hilarious.
When we actually did it at the shower, I had just asked for verbs. Well, some people submitted linking verbs instead of action verbs, so that threw it off just a little. It’s not a big deal, but just keep in mind that not everyone has taken a grammar class lately and won’t be receipting “ing words” when filling it out.
DIY Baby Shower Mad Libs
What You’ll Need:
- Six small glass baby food jars
- Parts of speech printable
- Mad Libs printable
- Instructions printable
- Paper trimmer
- Small strips of paper
What You’ll Do:
Before the shower, print out all the printable Baby Shower Mad Libs components (the fill in the blank story template, the instructions, and the parts of speech printable). I already created them for you with gender-neutral onesies. The baby shower we helped put together was baseball themed, so I made sure all of our printables had baseballs.
I redid them for this post, though, to be more generic baby themed. You can grab all the printables at the end of the post.
So, print out all the printable (including the actual Mad Lib itself), cut what needs to be cut, and bring everything to the shower. Also, be sure to pack the six small glass baby food jars. We actually purchased small plastic containers to use, but baby food jars would be a cute touch.
At the shower, set up a part of speech card in front of each of the clear boxes. Put a stack of the small strips of paper next to each.
Put the instructions before all the boxes and leave some pens there.
Partway through the shower, have the host of the game and the momma-to-be come to the front of the room.
The host will read the part of speech from a blank. The mom-to-be will pull out one sheet of paper, at random, from the box that corresponds and will read it aloud.
Then, the host will write that word in the blank and call out the next part of speech. Continue until all the blanks have been selected.
Then, have the mom-to-be read the entire Baby Mad Lib to the crowd.
We were all laughing so hard while my sister-in-law was reading the Mad Lib, so I’m sure you will be too.
Now about those printables …
