These gifts for 10 year old boys are sure to please!
At 10, for a lot of boys, video games are high on the priority list but here’s a few options that are pretty universal boy pleasers:
Is it Gross or Disgusting? Does it blow up? Is it slightly dangerous? It’s a boy thing. They love to see the reaction on people’s face and I think they get some sort of inward satisfaction in being able to handle it. Slime, crazy lab experiments, fireworks, rockets, bean boozled game, ripley’s believe it or not books, catapults, slingshots, etc. all would make great gifts for 10 year old boys.
The need for speed- penny boards, go karts, hoverboards, zip line, R/C cars
Sports- got a favorite team? Caps and Team Tshirts. Drawstring bags from Nike, Adidas, & Under Armour are also a great gift that can be multipurpose. Football? I cannot tell you how many different kinds of footballs I’ve seen apart from the normal football. Soft nerf, aerodynamic spiral, and even light up ones. A simple gift like this is likely what the boys will be playing with even at the party.
Nerf- Give them guns and a large backyard and handful kids can have a blast with a Nerf war. Give them a few obstacles such as pallets or cardboard on stakes or tires or barrels and the Nerf war becomes all that more fun. Laser Tag guns are another fun option for this age.
Rising Thinker- Got someone who’d rather read a book than play outside?
1. Rocks and Minerals- Let them investigate further with the National Geographic Rocks and minerals book and then a rock and mineral set where they can test for hardness and magnetism. What about some geodes they can break open? or a rock tumbler to smooth those stones out.
2. Basics of Circuits- Snapcircuits have several great kits that will keep them occupied learning how circuits work and constructing various circuits to make their own radio , make a fan work, etc. What are closed and open circuits? Let them read, construct, and learn.
3. Microscope discovery- Get them a good microscope with some prepared as well as blank slides and let them discover the world around them.
4. Robotics- there are several options to choose from. To name a few: Sphero SPRK, Lego Mindstorms, Makebot mbot. If the time is taken, you’re kids can learn the basics of coding and get their bots to do all kinds of cool things.
