You may think it’s difficult to decide on a teen gift for the holidays, but they’re really kids at heart and sometimes like the same things younger kids do. Besides electronics that feature games and socializing, there are some other choices you can make that will make them happy.
The Craft-tastic String Art Kit is perfect for the girl or boy who loves to work with his hands. String art has been around for years, but it’s taken a new turn and kids love it. This particular string art kit begins with the canvas that measures 8 ½ inches (square).
Your teen simply pushes the pins into a foam canvas (3 per kit) and use the designs (hi, peace or heart) to create art. Your teen won’t need a hammer or nail like some string arts kits recommend.
Your teen will love hanging the new art on the wall in his room – or lean them up on a dresser or other. It’s a great way for the teen to get away from electronics, homework and socializing and do something that’s totally for him or her.
Teens love to get together and play games, too. You’ll find a wide array of online games in your favorite online shopping sites and can have it sent to your home or the teen recipient.
The Lightning Reaction Reloaded – Shocking Game is fun for young and old alike. It looks like a space age contraption and works by having each player grab a handle from the base.
When the player presses the button in the center, the red light blinks and the eerie music will begin. Then, when the light turns green, the fun begins. Press the trigger button as rapidly as you can.
If you’re the last person to react, you’ll get a shock. It’s not a bad shock, but you can rev it up with settings from Low to Medium and High. You choose. It’s a shocking game, but one that’s fun and will encourage lots of reactions.
