If you’re looking for a fun activity to do at your baby shower, why not try writing a crossword puzzle with the answers being words about the mom-to-be? It’s something that everyone can get involved in and it’ll be fun to see how many clues people can guess correctly. I’ve provided a list of sample questions below if you need help coming up with any more ideas:
The baby’s due date
The due date is the perfect starting point for your crossword puzzle. It will help you choose the right clues, and since it’s such an important piece of information, it must be written in a way that is easy to read and understand.
You should write the due date in month-day-year format (for example: 07-15-2024). The word “due” means “scheduled.” If you can’t tell when your friend’s baby will arrive, their doctor may have given them an estimated due date instead of a specific one, which means they’ll need to wait until sometime after this number has passed before they’re able to find out exactly how long they have left before their child arrives!
If your friend has gone into labor early or late (and doesn’t know why), make sure that whatever clues you give are taken from what she did on her actual day of birth so that everyone who solves this puzzle won’t end up getting confused by incorrect information about what happened on the day their child was born!
Baby’s first food
- Baby’s first food should be iron-fortified cereal.
- Baby’s first food should be a protein source.
- Baby’s first food should be a fruit or vegetable.
- Baby’s first food should be a grain.
- Baby’s first food should be a dairy product, like milk or yogurt.
Mother’s favorite color
Let’s get started!
- The mother’s favorite color is ___
- The baby’s gender is ______, and he or she was born on ___
- The mom’s favorite flower is ________, which makes sense because all moms love flowers. What about you? What is your favorite flower? If you don’t know the answer to this question now, write it down on a piece of paper so that it can be used later in the crossword puzzle.
- The baby’s first food was _._._._.. This could be anything from a bottle to a jar of Gerber baby food! Just remember that the food needs to be in quotation marks and followed by an ellipsis (three periods). If you aren’t sure what kind of food your child ate as an infant, jot down something like “unknown” below—this will come in handy later when we’re trying to figure out how old they are and whether they’ve graduated from high school yet.
- Mom due date: _________; Baby born: ___.___*. This box includes both pieces of information; if either one isn’t known yet then just write “unknown” here too so that we have somewhere else where questions can go unanswered without confusing anyone else who might try solving this puzzle later on their own time (maybe at home while watching TV).
Mom-to-be’s favorite book as a child
- Name of the book: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
- Why she liked it: “I loved how the story was set against a backdrop of scientific discovery and how that exploration of science played such an integral role in the plot.”
- What it’s about: The main character, Meg, travels through time with her brother Charles Wallace and friend Calvin to find their missing father. They meet three mysterious women who help them on their journey.
- How old she was when she read it: Ten years old or so
- Who recommended it to her: Her dad
Three words that describe the mom-to-be
As the party’s host, you’ll want to make sure that all of your guests have a great time! To help, we’ve come up with some words that describe new moms in general. Please use these as part of your speech at the baby shower and share this post with the other guests so they can get a feel for who they’re celebrating.
- Happy: A happy mom-to-be is always smiling and laughing at funny things (even if they’re not actually funny). She can also be emotional sometimes, especially when talking about her baby or planning how she’ll raise them.
- Excited: An excited mom-to-be is often bouncing around with energy just waiting to meet her little bundle of joy—or maybe even more than one!
- Nervous: A nervous mom-to-be may worry about all kinds of things while pregnant—for example, will she be able to take care of her child after birth? Will she still fit into her pre-pregnancy clothes?
Where mom and dad met
Where Mom and Dad Met
The answer is one of the first things that you should ask mom and dad. If you don’t know them well enough to ask, there are other ways to get the answer. You can use Google or other search engines to find out where they met. There are also websites that offer this information for a fee.
Something mom is looking forward to doing with her baby?
If you’re looking for something mom is looking forward to doing with her baby, think about the following:
- Going to the park
- Taking a walk in their neighborhood
- Going on a bike ride around town or on a bike trail
- Visiting a museum (or taking in some art at home)
- Going to the beach, lake or river. Make sure there are water shoes! We recommend bringing sunscreen too – babies burn easily and can’t tell you what they’re feeling like. If you’re going somewhere with sand, remember that it’s easy for little feet to get buried if you don’t watch them closely enough. Also be careful about stepping in puddles or anywhere else that might have standing water; it’s not just for fun anymore!
Mom’s favorite flower
In addition to making your mom-to-be feel special by asking her what her favorite flower is, you can also use that flower as a symbol of love. For example, if she loves daisies, set up a table with a bunch of them and arrange them in pretty vases for everyone to enjoy. You can even place some on the food table for decoration!
If you’re having trouble coming up with an idea for how best to incorporate flowers into your baby shower theme, we’ve got you covered. Check out these ideas below:
Dad’s birth place
- Dad’s birth place
- Dad’s birth year
- Dad’s birth month

Mom and dad’s anniversary date (mm/dd/yy)
We’ll start with easy questions, like the date of your baby shower.
- What is the due date of your baby?
- What is going to be the first food that mom or dad feeds their child? (If this is a surprise to them, you might want to change it up and make it something more fun.)
- Mom-to-be’s favorite color (or if you’re doing this for dad then his favorite color).
- A book that mom liked as a kid (and maybe still likes today)
