Cool School Lunch Pack Ideas for Boys
"Cool" is in the Eyes of the Beholder!
When you are checking out lunch packs for boys, they usually show preference for something that is "cool". Cool varies greatly, by age, and there are no stringent guidelines as to what is, or isn't going to satisfy the interests of your child. Add to that, peer influence, and it's advisable that you make sure that the lunch tote you purchase is one that will stand through the year as interesting and acceptable.
Of course, it would be easy enough to stick with a simple, solid colored lunch pack, but then, that is anything but cool. It may not invite teasing, but it will neither promote an interest. That's the safest route, but extreme. Try starting with your son's interests, and then examinining the selections together. Fortunately, the realm of online shopping has made it possible to peruse a multitude of options, without using a drop of expensive gasoline!

Dinosaur Lunch Packs for Boys
Dinosaurs are a classic favorite of boys, and many carry their interests beyond childhood. Still, the available lunch pack options with dinosaurs vary in terms of age appropriate. Some are obviously geared toward younger boys, namely those in pre-school, and early elementary grades. There tends to be a transition in the middle of elementary school, and cartoonish dinosaurs may not be appreciated as much. If your child wants a dinosaur lunch box, make sure you have him look at the selections with you, and defer to his judgement.
