Happy Siblings Day


I'm a middle child with an older brother and younger sister.  How about you?  Do you have siblings?  Where are you in the family order?


Here are some activities having to do with siblings.  No siblings?  Have your child invent some siblings s/he would like to have.  Give them names and ages.  Then do the activities below.


Sibling Writing

* Make a list of 3 good things about each of your siblings. 

* Write about some ways you help your siblings.  How do they help you?

* Draw a picture of you with your siblings doing something fun.


Sibling Math

* Measure the heights of you and your siblings.  

* Figure out the difference in height between you and each of your siblings. 

* List everyone's birth year.  Figure out how old each will be in 20 years and 35 years.  What calendar years will that be for each of you?


Sibling Reading

In the comments below tell me the name of a book you've read that features siblings.  Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary is one I enjoy.
