Great Gifts For Middle School Age

This begins a series on kids toys from someone who knows: Writer and Mother Lynne M Favreau. Since she also cares for infants and toddlers in her home, because she is so good at it and has a wealth of experience, when she offered to blog during this busy month, I not only knew I would be providing you with top notch gift ideas with both practical and relevant.  There are 5 in this series, up through high school age, so subscribe, bookmark, follow so you won't miss one!

Middle School (10-14)

Despite the growing independence of this age they still like gifts but they'll tell you they only want cash or gift cards. No dice, the pleasure of gift giving is selecting something just for them. - Lynne

There will be no ignoring Star Wars this Christmas.

The heck with the kids, I want the custom sneaker kit for me! Lynne, you found some magnificently cool things. Love the starship as well.. I am a sucker for anything even close to Startrek! Great ideas for middle schoolers... things that stimulate their creativity, not just the same old same old same old video games.
