DIY Gender Reveal

When I was 18 weeks pregnant , we found out the gender of our little baby! We were looking for some fun and creative ways that we could share the news with our friends and family and I stumbled upon a few ideas on Pinterest! One of the ideas was hitting  a baseball and having some fancy powder explode into the air with the colour of the gender! I thought that was such an awesome idea because both my husband and I are very much into playing baseball! Together we play on 3 teams , which makes for a fun but very busy summer! The only problem I had with the ideas I could find , was I had no idea where to find half of the supplies! So I wanted to share with you how we ended up doing our gender reveal! We did this back in September so we were lucky to have Michael’s Craft Store have their Christmas stuff starting to come in already ! We bought a 6 pack of plastic fillable ornaments roughly $8, Cheaper if you get one of those lovely Michael’s coupons, just a small  59 ml bottle of Americana Snow White Acrylic Paint and LOTS of Chalk!! One of the great things about Michael’s is that they sell chalk in their $1.50 bins and they are all the same colour! We bought both Pink and Blue ahead of time because we weren’t sure what the end result was going to be!
