My boys are big NASCAR fans and how can you blame them? The combination of fast cars, colorful logos and M&M’S candy with a splash of acceptable crashing and bumping is every kid’s dream. Of course, my preschooler thinks Kyle Busch gets to eat M&M’S while he’s driving or maybe his car is filled with candy, so he’s even more smitten with the sport.
I know some people like to pile on the fan gear until their body can handle no more. My husband, for instance, has an AMP energy shirt (he’s a Dale Earnhardt Junior fan) you can see and read from about 10 miles away. He looks like a walking billboard. I’m not joking.
I’ve convinced him not to buy tons of crazy fan gear for our kids, but I’ve gotta admit it’s enticing. If traditional tacky fan gear isn’t your thing, you can dress up your little sports enthusiasts in colorful separates and add one piece of official gear to make it complete. For my boys, I start with a pair of jeans and go from there.
