DIY Kid Friendly Gender Reveal!

This being our third pregnancy, we decided to have a little fun sharing the news of our baby’s gender with our friends and family. Living far away from everyone can present a bit of a challenge though (those cute gender reveal parties that are all over Pinterest are sort of out of the question 😦 )

So I decided to get a little creative. A lot of the folks we are close to have young children, so we thought it would be fun to get them in on the action!

So here it is, our little baby turtle reveal!


To make some of these yourself you will need

  • small tupperware containers
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Glitter (optional)
  • sand( optional)
  • a variety of rocks, shells, grass, etc
  • a small object to represent baby’s gender. We used Sea Turtle shaped beads 🙂

First, place a few rocks/shells etc in the bottom of each container. I didn’t get any shots of this, as I was mixing the plaster while my little lady helped with the rocks


Next you will need to mix up the plaster of paris according to package instructions. I opted to add a little sand and glitter to dress it up 🙂


Pour a little of the plaster over the rocks on the bottom and let harden for 5 minutes. Then place your gender reveal object in the center of the container and cover with remaining plaster. we also added a few more rocks and some grass to give it a little ecosystem look 🙂


Once it sets, you can decorate your container! I typed up  little message and taped it to the top, and added a few question marks around the sides.

Place the lid on top and they are ready to ship out! Im looking forward to hearing how our friends helped our little turtle “hatch” 🙂

Have fun crafting!
