Baby Shower Game Free Printable: Name That Rockin’ Lullaby!

Who doesn’t love a good baby shower?!  The tasty treats, the adorable onesies and other teeny tiny clothes, all the ooohing and ahhhhing at the precious gifts….and of course the GAMES!

I’ve been to my fair share of baby showers (haven’t we all?) and have taken part in plenty of different games.  Some were actually really fun and enjoyable….and let’s just say I couldn’t wait for others to be over. #zerofunchristine

Today I’m sharing with you a game that I’m pretty sure will be a hit at any baby shower shindig….I mean, how can you go wrong when partying with (tot-appropriate versions of) Taylor Swift, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, the Boss, and Madge, among many, many others?

Oh, this post is also a part of a fun VIRTUAL baby shower in honor of a good blogging buddy of mine, and you’ll also find LOTS of other blogger creations related to all things baby shower.  Keep reading to see all the fun!

How This Game Came About: Pillow Talk!

Now I’ve never actually played this game at a true baby shower (I know, say whaaat?).  I came up with this one Saturday morning several years ago while my husband and I were laying in bed having a little pillow talk.  I was pregnant with my son, who’s my first child, and I had nothing but BABY THINGS on my brain.  So, our conversations tended to always revolve around the topic of tots, even first thing in the morning.

Oh, and itty bitty baby things are once again a topic of constant conversation for us because….I’m pregnant with our second baby! :)

Some Exciting News To Share: WTSHB is Expanding! Sort of.... ;) | WhereTheSmilesHaveBeen.com

 

Ok, back to the story!

I grabbed my iPhone off the nightstand, opened up the iTunes store app, and searched for lullabies.  That’s when I discovered all these super adorable lullaby versions of rock and pop songs that everyone knows!

My husband and I began quizzing each other in the Name That Tune style (this was before the days of streaming, so we just used the 30 second free preview….that small amount of time made it even more challenging!).

Since there are no lyrics and it’s just instrumental music in the style of classic lullabies, it’s actually harder than you might think!  The chorus is what always saved me.

There are several different brands or lines that specialize in this area, but my personal favorite are the Rockabye Baby ones.  I just think they’re the most well-produced and identifiable….and that cute little croaking frog gets me every time!

My husband gravitated toward the rock groups he loves:

I challenged him to more of my faves that are more poppy (and let me just say, I kicked his butt):

Now these are just some of the ones we browsed through several years ago.  There are TONS more available from all kinds of artists, and in the time since then, lots more stars of today have been added, like Taylor Swift, Adele, Rihanna, Pink, and Fall Out Boy.  So many great tunes to choose from!

 

How the Name That Rockin’ Lullaby Baby Shower Game Works

Ok, so here’s how the game could work in a real baby shower setting with multiple participants:

  1. Print off copies of the printable (found below) and pass them out along with pens or pencils.  There are spaces for ten challenges, each with the name of the song as well as the name of the artist/band.
  2. Either purchase some songs in advance, use the available free previews, or use a streaming service and play a small snippet of your selected songs WITHOUT telling your guests what they are in advance.
    1. I know these songs are available on Amazon Prime Music (free trial too!) or Apple Music.  They may also be available on other streaming services too like Spotify or Tidal….I’m not sure.
  3. The guests then jot down their guesses on the printable.
  4. Score how ever you’d like: One point for a complete correct answer (need song AND artist/band), or one point for either correct answer (song OR artist/band).  Or any other way you can think of!
  5. Pass out a fun prize to the winner! :)

  1. Christine, this is an awesome game idea! I threw a baby shower back in February and this would’ve been a perfect game. Already pinned in case I ever throw another one ;)

  2. What fun. I had no idea there were lullaby versions of these songs. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing the idea. And congratulations!!!

  3. Sounds like a ton of fun, and I love the cute printable!

  4. Ahhhhhh! You speak my language, Christine. Name That Tune is one of my favorite games (I was doing a weekly game on Periscope last year before I completely lost my energy due to being pregnant, lol), and this adaptation for a baby shower is OUT OF THIS WORLD amazing. I am SO doing this with my hubby…and at every shower I get to host in the future. Brilliant!

    So very honored to be celebrated today through this epically awesome virtual shower. Thank you for being a part of it and for your clever, creative activity and printable! And congrats again on your pregnancy. I’m so very thrilled for you and your family. So many smiles to come!

  5. Great game! It’s so fun celebrating Lauren together today!

  6. Sucha fun game and Congratulations!!!
