I am now in to my 5th month of pregnancy with baby #4 and just found out the gender. Since we have 3 older siblings for this one, I really wanted to do something fun for the kids to share the news with them.
After scouring the internet for some inspiration and ideas other than cake and balloons we settled on this awesome gender reveal for kids.
Gender Reveal for Kids
A silly string fight was absolutely perfect for my kids! They are a rambunctious bunch so I thought they would love the idea of chasing each other around the yard with it, no matter what the color.
So, I made a cute little print out and covered up the bottles of silly string so they wouldn’t know if there was pink or blue inside the cans. When they got home from school I told them what was happening and made sure to have my camera ready!
The Set Up:
All you need is a few cans of silly string (in the gender “color”), white paper, and ribbon.
I folded a regular sheet of white paper to fit the cans, wrapped it around and tied it off with blue & pink ribbon.
The framed sign was a picture from her ultrasound and the rhyme: “Blue or Pink, Brother or Sister What do you think?”. I printed it off and fit it to an 8 x 10 frame.
When Gender Reveals don’t go exactly as planned
After they had gotten over the excitement…errr, I mean disappointment, the silly string fight DID happen and fun was had by all in celebration of their soon to be little sister!
Even brother got over it and is now happy to be “the man of the house”.
And the little, soon to be BIG sister, announced that she “changed her mind” she DOES want a baby sister!
Have you done a fun gender reveal for the kids? How did it go??? I’d love to hear all about it!
