Getting siblings to work together can sometimes be very difficult…and sometimes quite easy. With that truth in mind, we searched through our archives to find a few activities that are both fun and cooperative. Make sure you have enough materials to allow each kid make their own craft and it should be a fun time for all.
1. Bird Feeders and Squirrel Feeders
This is a fun and creative way to get your kids to work together. They will love getting their hands messy and making something for the birds and squirrels in your neighborhood.
2. Milk Jug Lantern
Milk Jug Lanterns are a fun project that also comes with a walk at the end. Encourage the kids work together to make your lantern or make one for grandma and grandpa after they are done with their own. Then take a walk in the evening all togher.
3. Super Spy Fingerprint Powder
Alright, being a Spy Team sounds awesome. Invite the kids to work together to find the bandit by looking for fingerprints. They will soon forget all about their squabbles.
4. Soap Boat Races
Sometimes sibling rivalry needs a little competition. If you have kids who just can't agree on anything, have them race it out until both kids win. By the time they are done they will be wet and giggling.
