Did you know that in some parts of the world, such as the United States and Canada, siblings get together tomorrow to appreciate the special bond that only siblings understand? Although it may not be such a big deal in Malaysia, we do love our brothers and sisters just as much, and we love to annoy them just the same. Here are some hilarious ideas to keep you giggling, squabbling and teasing your over grown brother or sister, and some cool activities to pass down to your kids. You never know, these bonding sessions just might become a yearly family tradition for generations to come. The Potato Plop This involves a very cheap pantry staple and two competitive kids. Place two empty bowls at a finishing line at the end of the room. Then mark a starting point across the room and give each child a potato. The task is to race while carrying the potato between their knees and drop it in the bowl at the finish line. The first sibling who gets five potatoes into the bowl wins. No hands allowed! Don\u2019t Step On The Lava This is a huge hit in my home, the only problem is scattered pillows all over the house. The kids jump from couch to couch without touching the floor unless it\u2019s a pillow. The players must keep moving and try to hit and make the other person touch the floor and melt (in lava). Okay, maybe not the friendliest of activities, but they will be in rolling over laughing by the end of the game for sure. Freeze Game This is one that will allow you to enjoy some music and get them moving around for a little workout. Turn on the music loud and then stop the music; the kids must freeze until the music starts playing again. If anyone budges before you start the music again, they get a point. The one with the most points loses. Follow The Treasure Trail Leave hidden messages around the house, and make them work in pairs to get to the next clue. To get them to improve their language skills, you can also write down clues in Bahasa Malaysia and other languages. This is a guaranteed hit, especially when you host play dates and there are more teams to compete. Photo Credit: freepik Blind Treasure Hunt Similar as a treasure trail, but with a twist. This is where you learn to trust your sibling, like it or not! Place some treats around the house and blindfold one of the siblings. Let the other one (who is not blindfolded) guide the other to the treat with words. Balloon Walk At some point or another, we\u2019ve all played this and hated the person who made us lose. Stand your kids side by side and put a softball or balloon between their hips. Tell them to walk across the room without dropping the object (and without using their hands to help hold it). If they drop it, they need to start all over again. Who Is The Better Pilot? Get the kids to make paper aeroplanes (this is where dads can help) and have a paper aeroplane competition to see who can throw the furthest. Get them to experiment with different paper types, weights and designs to find out who really is the better pilot. Photot Credit: freepik Einstein, I Am Not Set up a pretend science lab. Let them get pretty dirty by mixing and stirring random items together. Experiment (pardon the pun) with various containers, spoons, and tools. You can give them coloured water, icing sugar, food colouring gels, baking soda and vinegar for even more science fun and mess.

The first one to complete their rainbow, wins a chocolate gold coin (at the end of the rainbow, get it?). Masak-Masak (Restaurant Style) Get them to start their own restaurant, name and all. Prepare pretend menus and paper money. Show your kids how to set the table and order from the menu. One child can order and eat while the other one cooks and serves. Or you can get your kids to serve you for a change, by being the customer. You can rate your dining experience and get them to improve the next time. It\u2019s nice to have the tables turned, isn\u2019t it? Old-time favourites and new ones Photo Credit: freepik Kids, siblings or not, never tire of exciting games such as Monopoly, UNO, Snake & Ladder and Jenga. But there are many new options out there, depending on their age. \u201cWhat Did I Step In?\u201d is a fun new one that you can purchase online or from some toy shops. It is a fun game for the entire family, the aim is to not have to smell \u201cpoo\u201d that you accidentally step in. Twister is also fun and a somewhat good stretching exercise for the young and not-so-young in your house.
