Let's dive into our topic!

You anxiously counted down the days until your anatomy scan. You watched as your stone-faced ultrasound technician scribbled down the sex of your baby and carefully sealed it in an envelope. AND NOW YOU CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT!

Gender Reveal Party - we have already seen the popping balloons and the drawn-out cake cutting. If you are looking for something new for your party, check out our top 5 unique ideas for a gender reveal.

1. The Human Canvas

We would only recommend this idea if you are hosting your gender reveal outdoors as, well, it gets just a tad messy.

What you need?

1. Water guns

2. Paint ( pink or blue, of course)

3. Canvas or white shirts

4. Blindfold


1. Fill up your water guns with the color of the gender. A pro tip, water down the paint, so it is thin enough to squirt out of the gun.

2. Have the parents-to-be wear a white shirt ( better do it in the end after pretty pictures have been taken) OR set up a big canvas.

3. When it comes time for the grand reveal, give your guest the color-filled water gun and let them go wild to spray on the parents to be or have the parents spray on each other!

4. If using a canvas, let the parents splatter the canvas with a gun and reveal the gender for everyone. Parents will be able to hang this canvas in the nursery to commemorate the excitement of that moment.

If the paint is a bit too messy for your taste, you can always swap it out with cans of silly string! You get the same chaotic fun with a much faster clean-up.
