Story Cubes - Hone Your Imagination!!

Roll the picture cubes & make up a story - imaginative fun.

11 year old boys are going through a lot, so get ready to join them on the confusing and emotional roller coaster!

At this age, he's trapped between not being a little kid but not yet being a grown-up. He'll want responsibility, but can become insecure about what he can actually achieve. These mixed feelings can be a lot to cope with - for you and him both! Encourage him to get involved in extracurricular activities to develop his talents and boost his self-esteem.

At this age, his hobbies start to become passions, and the stakes feel higher. Whether it's a football game or a Fortnite mission, losing can feel like the end of the world. Be enthusiastic when he succeeds (even if you're still not sure what Fornite is), and remind him that having fun is more important than winning.

11 year olds can be expert debaters, so expect pushback on hot-button topics like chores and limits on screen time. He'll jump at the chance to argue about the injustice of loading the dishwasher or his inalienable right to the latest Xbox game. Be fair but clear with your terms.

Above all else, remember that boys aged 11 year are still kids! Even if he complains that you're embarrassing him in front of his friends, he'll still ask you to tuck him into bed. And don't be surprised that even if he publicly declares toys to be 'babyish', he still secretly enjoys playing with them! (You are never too cool for Play-Doh.)
