The secrets we share with our younger or elder brother/sister are things we don’t share even with our parents. The bond between siblings is one that has love, hate, care and emotions. It’s not easy to always stay on the same page as our sibling – there are fights and yet, if someone else messes with them, we get angry. This bond is not there just because of the blood, but also due to the things we did and the problems we faced together.
It is therefore important for your children too to bond with each other and we have just the ways for helping you increase their sibling bond.
1. Brothers/Sisters vs. Parents
No matter how much the kids have fought an hour before, when it comes to defeating their parents in any sort of game, the bond that’ll form will amaze even you.
2. Fort Building
A classic activities that we too have done with our siblings is building forts out of pillows and blankets. The activity itself lets the kids work together and help each other, which tends to improve their relationship significantly.
3. Bonding In The Park
There is no greater feeling than enjoying your favourite ride in the park with your brother/sister or running around in the green grass or even racing bare foot. All these activities not only keep the kids active, but also help them bond with each other.
4. Video Making
With the advancements in technology, kids these days have even more things to do while staying inside their homes. One such activity that siblings can do is make a video together of doing some activity, singing songs, dancing or even lip syncing with expressions. It is not only fun, but also allows the children to bond with each other in team work.
5. It’s Treasure Hunting Time
This activity will probably need your help and work. Hide some gifts or pictures for the kids in different parts of the house and make clues for the location of the treasures. Let them solve the clues together and get their treasure. In addition to increasing their bonding, it will also help them learn different things and use their minds on different clues. So, one stone, multiple birds.
The bond between siblings will always remain strong as long as they have spent time together in doing different things and understanding each other. Even if they fight sometimes, that too is part of their love and care for each other. Parents too can help them make this bond even stronger.
