Happy National Cousins Day to all! This family holiday, celebrated each year on July 24, is a day to let all of your cousins knows how much they mean to you! Many of us grow up with our cousins and they end up becoming our lifelong friends. Are some of your little one’s playmates, their cousins? In honor of Cousins Day, we have three play ideas that little family members will love:
- Have a tea party: Celebrate by inviting your toddler’s cousins over during snack time! Cousins can spend some time in the playroom pretending to throw a party and enjoy a make believe meal with their table and chairs set.
- Do a good deed: Encourage your little one to help their cousins to clean their playroom or bedroom. Kids can work together as a team to put their toys away into a storage chest. Afterwards, kids can draw up some masterpieces and give them to their cousins as presents!
- Create a secret cousins club: Toddlers can spend some time outside in one of their playhouses and make it a “cousins only” club for the day. Playmates can play house, have a secret meeting or eat a snack in their backyard hangout.
How will you and your family celebrate Cousins Day?
