All of your party guests will have a great time playing this super fun free printable Mother’s Day scattergories game.
I have such fond memories of playing scattergories when I was a kid. My friends and I would take out the game during playdates or sleepovers and have a ton of fun coming up with words for categories and then comparing our answers with one another.
Now that I have kids myself, I’m excited to share with them the fun of playing scattergories. Today, I have created this fun free printable Mother’s Day scattergories game that you can play at your family party or classroom this Spring.

How do you play scattergories?
There are a few different ways you can play. If you are playing in a classroom setting or with a larger group of family and friends, you may wish to set a timer for 3-5 minutes prior to giving everyone their scattergories game page.
However, you can also play it on your own as well!
At the top of the page you will see eight different Mother’s Day themed categories. What you have to do is come up with a word for each category that begins with each letter of the word LOVE.
Here are a few examples:
Let’s take category 3, “animal.” For L you could say “lion,” for O you could say “ostrich.”
Continue on with the rest of the letter and categories and until you fill in all of the blanks. Write down as many answers as you can before the time runs out. If you happen to get stuck on a certain category, you can skip it and come back to it later if you have enough time.
After the timer runs out, go around the room and compare your answers with all of the other players. If there is a player that has the same answer as you do, both of you must cross that word off of your list.
Whichever player has the most unique answers at the end of the game, is the winner!
