What in the world do you give a tween boy for a birthday gift? (tick tock, tick tock) Based on my son’s reaction and his friend’s reaction, I think I’ve broken the code with this DIY movie birthday gift. And best of all, it’s easy to make.
Movie Birthday Gift
We picked up a box of movie candy from the drug store (bonus points if you get the birthday boy’s favorite candy) and a movie theater gift card.
If you have a scallop circle punch, then it’s easy to make popcorn kernels. If you don’t, just freehand cut popcorn shapes. Color the edges of the popcorn with a yellow highlighter to make it look like butter on the popcorn.
While I think it’s the perfect gift for a tween boy, it’s also a great gift for anyone who enjoys movies. You could make several of the box wrappers and envelopes up ahead. Then when a birthday party comes up, you just need to slip a box of candy into the box wrapper and you’re ready to go.
Gift giving to tween boys doesn’t have to be difficult with these additional ideas:
