Gender Reveal Ideas: Confetti Filled Push Pops {Tutorial}

Gender Reveal Push PopsFor our gender reveal party, it was really important to us to have our guests be the actual “revealers” of the big news. Instead of my husband and I cutting a cake or opening up a box of balloons, which are both fantastic gender reveal ideas, I made these cute confetti filled push pops for each guest at our party. Here’s a tutorial so that you can make these for your reveal and let every loved one be included in the “pink or blue” surprise.

Gender Reveal Confetti Filled Push Pop - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Gender Reveal via The Newlywed PilgrimageFirst, I ordered these plastic push pops from Amazon. You can get them for under $1 each. They were exactly what I needed.

At my gender reveal party, I had a lot of question marks around my house including one on the front door and one on a pink and blue wreath. I decided to incorporate that into the design of the push pop cover along with the overall Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme.

Last of all, I created an “on the count of 3, we shall see” sign to explain what the push pops were and I tied a ribbon over the basket to keep eager hands from grabbing them prematurely.
