Parents are always worried about their kids who always bicker with each other and create a nuisance around the house. Their main anxiety is how to stop child fighting and how to make siblings bond. In this post, we will discuss some amazing activities for siblings who fight with each other. Unlike foreign countries, living in a household of more than four members is a common thing in India. Growing up with siblings, cousins and relatives make our childhood more memorable than clubbing and socializing in adulthood. Picking a slingshot and shooting down the raw mangoes, making paper boats and racing them down the stream or puddles, running after a rubber tire pretending it was a vehicle etc. are some of the nostalgic memories that each of us cherishes.
Some Fun Activities for Siblings Who Fight and Bicker for no reason:
1. THREE CLAPS
This is a re-invention or a twist to a simple hide and seek. The “Denner” will count up to 50 or 100 until all the players have hidden. In this case, the siblings can themselves play or an elder can be the denner and the rest can hide.
The denner will call for the first clap. All the hidden players have to clap once. The denner has to listen closely to the claps and find the hidden players. The denner has to find all the players before three claps are over.
We know that rivalry is prevalent not only among kids but siblings as well. Hence such activities for siblings who fight is a must. This game increases child’s concentration power, listening skills and is a lot of fun to play around all day. It is a good answer to parent’s question that how to stop child fighting.
2. TREASURE HUNT
This is a great game to brainstorm on riddles. It also checks our imaginative side and is super fun to see the competitive side of your siblings. Here are another activities for siblings who fight and bicker all the time.
3. BALANCE THE POTATO
This is a simple but fun activity for siblings to play all day without fighting or getting bored, which actually is the ultimate wish for the parents, right?
The two siblings have to get to the finish line without dropping the potato between them. Such are some great activities for siblings who fight.
This activity lets siblings bond really close. Their body proximity is close which makes them trust each other. The balance of potato will help to figure out how fragile trust is, since balancing life and trusting each other is not an easy thing. They will realize that they cannot tackle the world alone but with the strength and support of the sibling. They will learn to respect, trust and support each other as they grow up.
4. T-SHIRT PUPPETEERS
How sometimes you wish to throw them in the trash bag but sometimes their cheeky smiles make you feel more loved.
For this activity, ask your elder child to stand in such a way that the younger kid is standing behind the elder kid. The hands of the younger sibling should come out through the hand holes of the T-shirt and the elder sibling’s hand should be wrapped around the tummy.
Now they have to act according to the elder sibling’s story. The elder sibling should say something and the younger one should use the hands to show gestures according to the sentence to convey what the elder one is trying to say. This way they will look like one big body with tiny hands.
This is a comedy show unraveling for the audience. The parents can make a video of the children playing and cherish the moments for lifelong, each time breaking up with fits of laughter while watching the video.
5. THE MUSIC FREEZE GAME
For this game, you have to play the music and allow the children to dance to the beat. Stop the music any time you feel. The children have to freeze doing their step. Then the person who stops the music approaches the children and does funny gestures to make them laugh. The first one to laugh is out of the game. Repeat until the children are dying of laughter and exhaustion. The above are some superb activities for siblings who fight with each other. It will eventually help them understand other’s feelings.
I think that the world not only runs by logic but with emotions as well. Give me a pen, a book and food - I will never disturb you again!
