Great Back-to-School Gear for Tween Boys
It’s that time of year where the summer is winding down and we are gearing up for back to school. As each summer comes to a close and we prepare for the new school year, my boys grow up just a little bit more. We are now venturing into the “middle ground”. Where we are not quite little boys but not teens yet. My oldest just turned 11 and going into 6th grade while my youngest may only be 9, he has the attitude of a 13 year old. So, when we are gearing up for school, shopping is becoming a bit more difficult. Long gone are the days of the cute themed backpacks and lunchboxes with puppies and trains. They are way too cool for those. But, since we wear uniforms to school, they want to share their individuality and express themselves through their gear. So, finding the right gear is beneficial. Target always has us covered for the best gear perfect for these tween years.
Backpacks need to make a statement but also show that they are growing, mature and really cool young men. These four styles will do just the trick for tween boys. Video games will never go out of style and works perfectly for any age as does Harry Potter. But, you can never go wrong with strong and sturdy backpacks in black or navy.
Lunchboxes may not be cool at this age but if your tween boys insists, like mine do, these lunch boxes will have them enjoying lunch in style.
Back to school gear is not limited to backpacks and lunch boxes. Water bottles, food containers and even pencil cases can help make a statement for your tween boys. Say goodbye to the cute animals and vehicles and welcome these stylish designs perfect for school.
