Activities to Celebrate National Sister’s Day

Relive the Golden Years with Home Movies

Grab those old home videos out of the attic and relive the highlights of your youth.

Celebrate Favorite Memories with a Photo Timeline

This can be a physical craft on poster board or something you put together on the computer! Gather photos from all stages of your lives and highlight important dates and milestones as well as favorite memories.

Put on Your Sunday Best for a Sister Photo Shoot

Make it a serious affair or have fun with it “Awkward Family Photos” style. Turn it into a shareable album on Facebook or make prints for Mom and Dad to show off! Bonus: have access to outfits the two of you wore growing up? See if you can squeeze into them!

Join Forces and Make a Mess in the Kitchen

Pick your favorite dessert recipe and get baking, sister-style! Invite Mom and Dad to enjoy the fruit of your labor – after all, you have them to thank for such an awesome sister!

Get the Inside Scoop on Your Sis with a Sister Interview

Sit down for a formal interview with your sister and ask questions you may not normally ask. They can be light and simple or deep and complex; the possibilities are endless!

Have a Sister-Flick Marathon

Grab the popcorn, plop down on the couch, and have a marathon of your favorite sister movies or TV shows! From The Parent Trap to Sister, Sister, Hollywood is filled with classic sisterly duos to remind you why yours is your BFF.
