Funny Gender Reveal Ideas
When organizing a gender reveal party, there are lots of hilarious options to consider. Getting everyone to laugh is sure to make our reveal a showstopper. There are so many funny twists we can choose from we are sure to find ones that will get even the most serious person giggling. Some of the fun involves just the couple, sometimes it includes just the keeper of the gender, and sometimes it involves everyone who is present for the big event.
When choosing to do a funny gender reveal it is important, we communicate with both the happy couple as well as guests, so they know what to expect and what to wear at the event. This can be as simple as saying we are going to get messy so, please wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. This can also build excitement around a gender reveal because guests will try to guess how the gender is going to be revealed.
Trick Gender Reveal Cannons
If we are planning on using a gender reveal confetti cannons or powder cannon, we can use a trick cannon. We could have a cannon that instead of revealing the gender says TBD or Why are you asking me? We could also have a cannon which instead of working plays an audio file that sounds like someone getting caught on mic.
Off To The Races
Races can be fun and a way to include all the guests who are in attendance. This could look like having a relay race and the first one to cross the finish line pulls a cord releasing pink or blue balloons. This also could look like having a swim race and the first one to the wall pulls a cord releasing gender reveal powder and coloring the whole pool in pink or blue. We also could do an egg race and at the end the contestants smash their eggs revealing pink or blue powder inside. You could even have a race and at the end perform a gender reveal burnout to declare the winner!
Clowning Around with Powder Color Bags
We can learn a lot from clowns when it comes to creating a funny gender reveal. We might have someone grab the end of a piece of cloth that goes on and on until the gender is revealed in a note inside a bunch of flowers. We might also consider dressing up as clowns and putting on a whole show before the big reveal where each clown holds up a letter that spells out the child's gender or spells out a funny message instead. Or you can even use gender reveal powder to throw in the sky or dress up your shirts.
Pie To The Face
In many classic comedies there is a moment when someone gets a pie to the face. This could look like adding a layer of pink or blue colored cream to a pie before smashing it onto the couple’s face. Getting a pie to the face is sure to make everyone laugh out loud. Another alternative is with fun gender reveal food ideas! You can have them cut the cake and have it be the opposite color in the first layer and then the next layer is the correct one, this is just one of many gender reveal cake ideas to choose from. If we want to take this to the next level, we can give everyone ponchos and then have everyone throw food either dyed blue or pink. If we are planning this type of gender reveal it is important to tell guests ahead of time so they know to wear clothes that they can easily wash.

Fashion Reveal Runway
There are a lot of goofy ways to add fashion to a gender reveal. If we have someone who is comfortable having their hair dyed, we can have them have a pink or blue mohawk to unveil at the proper moment. If we have someone who is willing to have part of their hair shaved, we can have them have a message such as “it’s a boy” or “it’s a girl” shaved onto their head. We might also have someone slowly take off their clothing until they reveal pink or blue boxers with baby bottles on them. Don't forget you can still rock our mom to be sash or baby shower sash for the pick moment!
Since we can purchase gender reveal powder cannon kits in both blue and pink, we can use it inside other items. We might fill water balloons with a mixture including gender reveal powder and have a water balloon fight. We might fill a super soaker with a similar mixture and soak the happy couple as part of our gender reveal. If it is winter, we might choose to have a colored snowball fight.
Solving a Pink or Blue Puzzle
Puzzle gender reveals might look like handing someone a gender reveal box, which contains a box within another one. This goes on and on until the very center box reveals the gender. This could also look like wrapping anything in several layers that have to be removed first before the gender is revealed. Puzzles can be a funny addition to a gender reveal as the couple is slowly surrounded by wrapping paper or bubble wrap.
