Step 3 – Assemble your Gender Reveal Pinata!

  • First, put your box together and secure the top with packing tape. Remember, the bottom needs to stay open at this stage.
  • Then cover the box with your chosen paper or paint. If covered with paper, wrap it like a gift.
  • You remember cut out the pieces for the flaps and tape down to keep it nice!
  • If you leave it plain, just assemble your box!
  • Now securely attach the 2 pull strings with tape to the inside of the large flaps on the base of your box. Make sure you fasten them well!
  • Also, you will need to attach some string to the top of the box so you can hang it. The best way to do this is to poke 2 small holes in each of the top corners of the box to thread your string through.

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
  • Remember, for a Gender Reveal Pinata you don’t want to fill the balloons with helium because you want them to float down, not up!
  • First, turn your box upside down and fill with your balloons, confetti, and streamers.
  • Then close the base of the box, leaving the 2 pull strings dangling. Use tape to loosely secure the box. Remember, you want the pull string to open the box so don’t over secure the box!
  • 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 Pinata is ready for the big reveal!

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