1With A Baseball
To pull it off, she came up with the idea to create a baseball from a plastic Christmas ornament filled with chalk powder. The couple was kept entirely in the dark—Monique's sister Marissa was the only one privy to the results of the gender scan and loaded the ball with the corresponding color of chalk.
They rented a baseball field and invited family and friends to wear either pink or blue to indicate their guesses. Photographer David Swayze explained that the pressure was on for Steven— they had one fragile ball, and one chance to get the shot. The dad-to-be, nicknamed “Showtime” for his hitting skills by his baseball buddies, stayed calm and focused. (Source)
2With A Rube Goldberg Machine
The reveal starts out with some classic Rube Goldberg shenanigans. The couple's first child, 15-month-old Theo, knocks a sippy cup off his crib in the nursery, which triggers this series of events. There are several rooms, two sets of stairs, a lot of toy cars, a "you think this is the end, but it's not!" fake-out, and some very satisfying domino effects before the gender-revealing confetti cannon is finally triggered.
Calmus he built the elaborate contraption with the help of a friend over a weekend his wife was out of town. The friend loaded the confetti canon, so the reveal was a surprise to all the Calmuses.
After a bit of research, they settled on the perfect idea—a labeled box filled with Tannerite and colored chalk powder to reveal their baby's sex.
Keith was faced with the task of bursting the box open by shooting it with a rifle. They looked for the perfect spot and found a beautiful wooded area in their hometown.
The couple was overcome with joy when the box opened, and the chalk in the air was blue. (Yes, they are having a boy!) (Source)
4With Hair Dye
In the now-viral video of the epic reveal, which Sacrison posted to her Facebook page back in November 2016, we see an anxious Parrish waiting for Sacrison to remove the towel from her head. The mirrors were covered while she was having her hair colored, so she had no idea what the outcome would be.
Once the towel is whisked away, bright blue locks spring forth, and Parrish immediately starts clapping and cheering.
This couple was convinced they were having a third girl, so when they were covered in blue, they were surprised and amazed.
