5 Awesome National Sibling Day Activities for Kids

Popcorn Bowl & SnacksHappy National Sibling Day! Every year on April 10, we celebrate our best lifelong friends: our brothers and sisters! All the best memories we share with our siblings start at childhood. So help your little ones create an unforgettable bond with these great National Siblings Day activities for kids.

Have a Just-for-Siblings Picnic

Give your kids one-on-one time to laugh, talk and play over some great food and snacks. Have them work together to fill up a picnic basket with sandwiches, popcorn, cookies, pretzels and any other snack foods they love. Set out a comfy blanket on the living room floor with some toys, pop a movie in the DVD player and let them dig in! They’ll be so excited to have their own private party, and they’ll create memories that will stay with them long after they’ve grown up.

Make Some National Sibling Day Crafts

Instead of having your little ones exchange store-bought presents, show them how to make handmade and heartfelt gifts they can exchange with each other. Help them draw their own National Siblings Day cards and tell them to write what they love most about their brother or sister. You can also get crafty with them and create some popcorn hearts that they can swap along with their cards.

Hold a Sibling Photo Shoot

Every kid should have some great pictures with their brother or sister. What better day to have a sibling photo shoot than today? Don’t worry; you don’t have to go to a professional to get great shots. Make it fun by setting up your own mini studio at home: You can hang up a sheet or tablecloth on the wall for an instant backdrop. Have your kids pick out their favorite outfits or costumes, give them a few cute photo props (like fake mustaches or jewelry), and tell them to strike a pose for the camera together. The sillier they are, the better the pictures will be! At the end of the day, they won’t just be smiling; they’ll also have lots of keepsake photos that’ll make them laugh for years to come.

Play a Sharing Game

Kids love to talk about their favorite things, so why not turn it into a fun game that’ll teach them how to share with their siblings? Tell each child to draw pictures of their toys and stuffed animals—without looking at their siblings’ drawings. Drop the drawings into a bucket and mix them up. Then, have each child pick a random drawing from the bucket and guess who drew it. After the game is done, tell the kids to take out the toys that they drew, exchange them with one another and explain why they love those toys. They’ll have a blast seeing the toys through their siblings’ eyes, and it’ll kickstart hours of fun sibling playtime!

Bond Over a Game of Sibling Trivia

No one knows you better than your sibling, and that close connection starts during childhood. You can help build that bond between your kids by playing an exciting game of sibling trivia. Have them sit in a circle and take turns saying two things about themselves that are true and one thing that is false. They can talk about anything: their favorite TV show, color, food, sport … the list goes on and on. Their siblings then have to try to guess which statement was false. When the game is over, they’ll learn so much about each other that they won’t just be siblings anymore—they’ll be best friends too!

What other kinds of activities will you be enjoying with your kids on National Siblings Day?
