Gender Reveal Ideas for Kids
You're expecting and planning a gender reveal party for the ages. Perhaps it's not your first child, and you want to incorporate the entire family into your celebration. Or, maybe it is your first child, but you have a large extended family and you can't imagine not having the children involved. After all, they're an important part of your clan. Naturally, you can't have them handle powder bombs or cannons, but that doesn't mean you can't tailor a package just for them.
At Gender Reveal Celebrations, we have a few ways you can incorporate kids into the party festivities and still keep them safe.
Create Special Gender Reveal T-Shirts
One thing you can do to include them immediately is to create a special t-shirt just for them. Find out ahead of time if they're team boy or girl, and have the gender-specific color waiting when they arrive. This is sure to make them feel as though they're an important part of the celebration. You can even have their names added to the shirts.
Kids love to have fun, and they love to make messes. Silly string gives them the best of both worlds. Plus, it's easy for the adults to pick up after, as well. To incorporate the silly string into your event, buy — or have the person who knows the gender buy — the cans in either blue or pink. Take a sheet of paper cut to the height of the can's body and glue it around to conceal the original label. Be sure to remove the cap, too, because they often reveal the color of the contents.
At the party, hand one to each kid when it's time to do the reveal and have them attack each other. Watch the chaos ensue and bask in the revelation.
Break Out the Confetti!
Who doesn't love confetti? It's so much better than glitter, which you'll be finding months after the reveal. Plus, These Gender Reveal Confetti Cannons are safe in the hands of your little ones, with adult supervision, of course!
However, if you want to be extra safe a great way to incorporate kids into your celebration is to give them a special push pop. They don't eat this one, though, rather they push the wand up to reveal a confetti explosion in pink or blue. There's no compressed air in these, unlike the confetti cannons Gender Reveal Celebrations offers that are great for adults — they're perfectly safe in little hands. While the adults have fun with the blast cannons, the children can join in on the fun of making things explode too, it's a win-win for everyone!
Watching kids run around in a shower of confetti can be just as exciting as discovering the news! We guarantee you will savior these gender reveal pictures of your kids celebrating with you forever!
Keep It Clean
If you're looking for a simpler idea, consider using a gender reveal box. Fill it up with balloons that reveal the gender and have the kids open it up for everyone to see. As an added bonus, the kids can play with the balloons after the reveal is over. You can even let them take one home with them at the end of the party.
Another potential idea in the same vein, is to create a gift bag for each child, with a blue or pink balloon inside. Cover it up with a neutral color tissue paper, such as white, yellow or green and hide the balloon underneath. Have them all "open' the bag to reveal the contents at the same time and video the moment. After, you can use still frames to take a picture of their expressions and send it to your family members.
Gender Reveal Powder Fun
If you want to bring older kids in on the powdery fun, and you should because it's absolutely safe to do so, a gender reveal balloon is the perfect solution. It's a great idea for school-age children. They're easy to pop and the contents are easy to clean up as well. The powder will wash away with water if you get it on your clothes or the floor, but outdoors, you can leave it to mother nature.
Just don't give these to young kids inside the house. Their curiosity may get the best of them, then you'll have to break out the vacuum. Another amazing option is Gender Reveal Smoke Bombs! Don't allow kids to light and hold these, but I guarantee they will love playing with the smoke in the sky! Just take a peek at this image above! Gender Reveal Smoke Bombs fill up the sky pink or blue for over a couple of minutes allowing you to capture the best gender reveal pictures.
When it comes to Gender Reveal Parties, we're always thinking of new ways to make it fun for every member of the family. When it comes to children, simpler is always better and it's best to avoid any ideas that involve compressed air as they may not be strong enough to withstand the pressure. That said, these are just a few ideas to get you the ball rolling!
