With National Brothers and Sisters Day coming up soon, it’s a good excuse to shake things up around the house & spend a few minutes together making fun memories.
One of the most important relationships we have in life is with our brothers and/or sisters!
Even if it doesn’t always feel that way when the kids are young.
National Brothers and Sisters Day Fun
May 2nd (National Brothers and Sisters Day) is the perfect time to do some sibling bonding activities.
Building up the bond between brothers and sisters not only strengthens their relationship for years to come, it also helps alleviate sibling rivalry issues.
Here are some activities to create special moments that will lead to years of memories.
Create a Blind Scavenger Hunt
Create a list of items around the house.
Blindfold one sibling and allow the other to direct the blindfolded sibling to each item – with their words only!
Make sure to switch roles to keep up the fun!
Not feeling creative?
Don’t worry about it – you can order PLENTY of pre-written scavenger hunts here.
Build a Fort Together
Whether your kids are old or young, the magic of a fort is hard to beat!
Forts can be made out of sheets, blankets, couch cushions, or other fun materials around the house.
Provide your kids with the materials and let them go to town!
Start a Secret Brother/Secret Sister Game
Have the kids come up with kind acts or little homemade gifts to give to each other.
But there’s a catch.
The catch is that they have to sneak the gift or action in without their sibling noticing!
Make a Game Together
Creating a game can be a great imaginative activity for kids.
When you give brothers and sisters this task, it helps them learn to work together as a team.
Plus, they get the added bonus of having a new game to play after it is created!
Make a Video Together
Have your kids plan and record a video together.
If they are old enough and you are comfortable with it, kids love creating YouTube channels for their videos!
I hope this list of activities gives you some ideas for encouraging your children to grow their relationships on National Brothers and Sisters Day and beyond!
