Finding out the gender of your newly expected addition can be so exciting! It can be just as exciting to come up with interesting ways to share the news with your family and friends, am I right?
One fun way to reveal the news is with a gender reveal poem or gender reveal riddle!
While similar to gender reveal sayings, poems are slightly longer and more sing-songy (and thereby more fun!).
These gender reveal poems and riddles can be used on gender reveal party invitations, on thank you cards, for gender reveal party games, for a gender reveal party theme, or for people to cast their votes on whether they think it will be a boy or girl. Plus, you may even be able to adapt them for a gender reveal scavenger hunt!
I hope you’ll enjoy the following poem ideas! May they encourage your own poetic juices to flow!
