This hardback book is a fantastic time capsule for teens just as they are right now. What 13-year-old doesn’t love talking about themselves?! The prompts included will help a transitioning middle-to-high schooler record themselves – their likes, interests, experiences, fears, memories, and more – so when they’re all good and grown, they can remember when they thought they would never get over their fear of spiders!
High school is just filled to the brim with garage rock bands – EVERYONE knows that. However, drum kits take up an awful lot of space and they’re so clangy, so many opportunities for busted ankles. Instead, gift your middle school graduate with this realistic, flexible, USB chargeable roll-up drum kit! They can take it to school to play with the other rock’n’roll outcasts, or stay in their room banging out Phil Collins’ drum licks – there’s talent in the air tonight!
Lava lamps never go out of style. Spicoli would be thrilled at how well they’ve held up over time. And this one is even funkier! It’s got two jellyfish chasing each other through the 9” tube, propelled by jets of air moving through the tank. It’s a sweet addition to any teen-pad – psychedelic, dude.
I like to call this, “the selfie-assister,” although really, you can do anything with it. This neat little guy fits into your purse, backpack, pocket, or any other carrying case. Totally bendable, absolutely adorable, and most illuminating, I dare say. Perfect for late night studying, selfie lighting, or even a flashlight on a late night expedition! Middle school graduates will love the opportunity to backlight their photos or even make stop-motion animation videos starring this little guy!
Who-who-who wouldn’t find this sweet little wireless bluetooth speaker absolutely precious? The battery lasts for 4 hours and all you have to do is connect it to any bluetooth capable device. You can take selfies with the camera, and make and receive calls! I’m not sure kids are having clam-bakes anymore, but any post-middle school kid with this speaker will be a VIP at all picnics, park gatherings, parties, etc.
With over 50 projects spanning from building sports games and flatulent noise makers, to wiring a magical message wand and electronic drum set, there are just too many options to know where to stop. The kit has six snap-together modular boards, the foundation of any good processor, as well as a speaker, light sensor, LED array, and more. The 48-page illustrated activity book not only explains how to complete each project, but the electronic principles that make these undertakings possible. Bring the “Weird Science” out in any budding computer whiz!
The stories of these inspiring women, both past and present, are chronicled in fairy tale format and feature vibrant full page color illustrations. Everyone knows that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a force on the Supreme Court and is not a teenager—but who knew she has being doing 20 push ups a day since she hit 80? This New York Times Bestseller will stir your grad’s imagination and inspire their bedtime dreams!
For graduates who need to unwind with a little more goofy fun in their lives, Pass the Pigs is a great, very portable game. The little pigs are designed with big ears so that they can land in many different positions, propped up on snouts or ears or even upside down. Learn about throwing a Snouter and getting a valuable Leaning Jowler, but get a Pig Out and lose all your points!
As unique middle school graduation gifts go, this is one of our favorites! Leave notes, doodles or be wildly artistic on this cool LED light up message board. Use the bright, vibrant neon pens to create your messages, choose from pink, green and orange. The frame hangs on the wall or stands free on any flat surface. Turn the frame on and watch as your message illuminates with a bright neon effect glow. Simply wipe clean using a dry cloth and start all over again. Be inspired!
For the astronomy-minded middle school graduate, this fantastic lightweight scope has two all-glass eyepieces and a tripod with a built-in red LED light, for reading the journal and moon map in the dark. From Nancy B’s Science Club, the 22-page journal is packed with fun activities, like learning about the lunar phases, writing a moon myth, spotting Saturn’s rings and even drawing your own man in the moon. Time to visit the stars!
Watch them go, but keep them in your heart
Watching kids grow up can be emotional! But don’t worry, they’re still kids! They just have elevated tastes now that they’re going to be HIGH SCHOOLERS! We hope these unique middle school graduation gifts will help sweeten your teens up on their way to high school—and beyond!
