National Siblings Day: 5 Special Ways To Bond With Your Siblings

If you have a sibling, you know how enjoyable and hectic life can be with them. You may get into fights on some days, and on other days, you can be laughing and joking together. However, as you get older, you may grow apart from your siblings. That may be due to family or career obligations. 

But today, April 10, marks National Siblings Day, which reminds all of us who have siblings to celebrate and spend time with family. So, here are five activities to do with your siblings today: 

1. Go on a trip together around the city 

I used to do this a lot with my sister when I was a teenager. You select a landmark in the city, like  a restaurant or mall, and travel to the place with your sibling. After, you spend a full day outside together, whether that would be shopping, walking, or taking pictures. By travelling to a place in the city together, you’re not only exploring new places, but building a stronger bond with each other. It’s a fun way to spend time together and get out of the house. 

2. Host a party together

You can also host an indoor party whichever way you like. You can dance around to some fun songs and make some food and drinks together. By partying, you can know your siblings more and see how they’ve changed. They’ll share their music and food tastes with you, after all. And you may end up discovering a new artist or two. 

3. Go to an event together

Regardless of if you live in a small town or a metropolitan city, there are plenty of events to visit with your siblings. This can include night events at museums or art galleries, or fandom events such as ComicCon or Anime North. An event will allow you to share your interests with your sibling, as well as socialize with others. 

4. Do an art project together 

If you and your siblings have some creative juices flowing inside your heads, you can unleash them by doing an art project. Although the idea of art projects seem very vague, as they encompass a lot of categories, you and your siblings can try different mediums and see which ones you like the most. You can draw, paint, sew, stitch, or craft. Completing an art project will allow you to develop some cooperation and collaboration skills, which all siblings need. 

5. Compile a memory book 

Do you have pictures of you and your siblings when you were all children? If you do, you can compile them in a memory book. You and your siblings can buy a few different albums and sort through the pictures. Your siblings can keep some of the photos, while you can keep the others. As a result, when you’re away from your siblings and miss them, you’ll have the memory book to look back on. 

Throughout National Siblings Day, we should appreciate how far we have come with our siblings. They have seen us grow, while witnessing our strongest and weakest moments. April 10 is a way to bring you and your siblings together, to catch up and see what’s going on. After all, they all say that “friends come and go, but siblings are forever.”
