Words that work well include:

This is…

Male or Female?

Pink or blue? Time to find out!

Twinkle twinkle little star, we wonder what you are!

Step 4 – Insert Balloons!

  • I cant can be confusing to figure out how many wolves to put in your box. However, you don’t want to overfill it, because the balloons can get stuck and not come out. In my experience, around 12-14 balloons all you need
  • First, tape the ends of the balloon strings to the bottom of the box
  • Then close the lid and use a ribbon to close them
  • If you are not “in on the surprise” you will need to get a friend or relative who knows the gender of the baby to do it for you!!

Now your DIY Gender Reveal Box is ready for the big reveal!

Then, gather your closest friends and family, count down from 10 and open the top of the box! Finally, your pink or blue balloons pop and your baby’s gender is revealed. Remember to have your camera ready!
