Gender Reveal Egg Roulette
Today, we bring you the coolest thing on the internet. You can thank us later.
Jimmy Fallon plays a hilarious game of egg roulette, where he has guests take turns smashing eggs on their heads. One is raw and will smash all down their foreheads.
Now, imagine this game as a Gender Reveal.
The Gender Reveal version of egg roulette involves dying eggs. You can choose two arbitrary colors or stick with the traditional choices of either blue or pink. It doesn’t have to be a statement about gender stereotypes, it can just be traditional symbols.
All of the eggs are hard-boiled, except for the one that will reveal the gender – that one stays raw.
Now the fun begins. It’s a great way for everyone to have a great time and it really builds the tension and creates a sense of anticipation and an air of eggcitement.
How to play Gender Reveal Egg Smash
The players take turns in breaking a colored egg on their forehead. If the egg is hard-boiled – it’s not the gender. Usually this is the Mom and Dad to be, but you can include grandparents, siblings, friends, it’s your party, you make the rules. Whoever has the raw egg has the correct gender – and a head dripping in egg.
It’s hilariously good fun. A game is one of the best ways to “break” the gender reveal. If you want some more ideas, you can check out some of the other posts on our blog.
Ideally, this game should be played by the expectant parents and therefore the gender should be a surprise. Ask the doctor administering your scan to jot down the gender on a piece of paper and place it in a sealed envelope. Then you need to have a good friend or family member set it up for you.
How to play Gender Reveal Egg Roulette
Ask a close friend or family member to set the gender reveal roulette up for you. Hand them the envelope and tell them to boil eleven eggs (or more if you want to keep the game going for longer) and keep one raw. Dye the raw egg, the correct gender, and the others a mixture of blue and pink. Make sure that you have an even number of each gender.
Keep the eggs in the fridge until you’re ready to play. Make sure the raw egg is hard so it won’t be a dead giveaway, consider freezing it and then putting it in the fridge a couple of hours before it’s time to play (if it’s cold, that’s also a dead giveaway).
The game itself is very simple and very fun. Simply take it in turns to crack an egg on your forehead. Eventually one of you will break the raw egg – the color of the egg that’s raw is the color of the gender. Now how’s that for an eggciting Gender Reveal idea?
