How many cute boys do you have to see in one year? Every year there are new ones. Every year there are older, “cute” boys who turn into 12 year old couch potatoes. Here are a few ideas for 12 year olds that can keep them from becoming couch potatoes.
Older kids often spend a lot of time playing video games. Make a commitment to teach them some other skills. Maybe they should start with simple math or reading. It’s also a good idea to set goals and have a reward when they reach them each year.
There are so many cute things that little girls love, how does a girl decide what to get for Christmas this year? A big stuffed animal would be a perfect gift. Or, how about a new doll, makeup kit or book on how to be a mommy? Or, maybe a new video game. If your daughter loves princesses, why not get her a pretty princess dress-up doll this Christmas?
This 12 year old just turned 12 and it’s been a year since he started school. He is in the class of the first grade. As a child, he had no interest in sports. But now, he is so determined to play baseball and football. What is a parent to do?
Encourage him to join the soccer team or cheerleading team. Show him the fun part of sports and let him help with practice. This will help him develop leadership skills as well as show him what good work really looks like. Parents can buy cute team uniforms or even make their own for their son.
While your son is growing up, try to help him with his homework assignments. There is nothing worse for a little one than having to do an assignment that is hard because you don’t want to do it. Help him out by making sure his paper and work are neat and clean before he sits down to do his. Even cute little 12 year old boys need help with their school work. It does not make it less important.
Get him a nice calendar for Christmas that features animals. Your cute 12 year old boy will think it is cool to have a calendar with animals on it. It will be something to look forward to each month. Yearbooks are beautiful, but they could use a little more oomph.
You can also help give him advice on what to do and what not to do when it comes to dressing for the winter. Let him know you love him and want him to be a nice little boy every year. When you have all these things in place, you will be able to relax knowing he looks forward to Christmas every single year. He probably will not even realize what he will be doing on Christmas morning!
The color of his yearbook may be a good topic to discuss when he and his friends are together. A lot of them are pink and green. While this does not mean anything, it could be fun to discuss with him what colors he likes better. Maybe he wants a class clown or something else that is different from what the rest of his classmates are sporting. There are tons of cute little outfits that are all the same color as his yearbook, so he can get a new one if he wants to.
A 12 year old loves to learn about history, and he certainly enjoys doing it with his friends. Tell him about the civil war and the different battles that happened during it. Also, talk about different politicians and figures from our nation’s past. If you are lucky enough to have a home that you can go back to, then take advantage of it. Show him pictures of your childhood home, and explain how much it meant to you. It will be really cute when he starts talking about this kind of stuff, especially because you were just kids.
Cute little boys love anything that is decorated. Give him a yearbook that has his name printed in it, and make him take it down to class with him. Then when he gets home, it will be something that he will look forward to reading, and even hold onto for a long time. If you do not know how to decorate a yearbook, then simply go online and do a search for “cute boys’ school books”. You will be amazed at all of the cute ideas that you can come up with.
These are some of the activities that you can do with your 12 years old that will keep him interested in learning, and having fun. Cute boys love to learn and do new things. He is probably already very into sports, and would love to learn about something like wrestling, basketball, or football. All you have to do is bring him into the picture, and he will start thinking about getting a sports jersey of his own, or maybe getting a soccer ball for his softball team!
