7 Reasons Why Being an Aunt and Uncle is Wonderful

7 reasons why being an aunt and uncle is wonderful

In honor of Aunt and Uncle’s Day, here are 7 reasons why being one of these special relatives is so wonderful:

  1. When they babysit they get to experience what life with kids is like. The only difference is they still get to enjoy sleeping through the night!
  2. Nieces and nephews will be honest with their aunts and uncles about anything.
  3. Kids will actually listen to the advice their aunts and uncles give.
  4. They get to have a blast at their nephew and nieces’ birthday parties, but don’t have to clean up the mess afterwards (unless they are asked to help)!
  5. Uncles and aunts get to relive their childhood through their nieces and nephews.
  6. Kids treat their aunts and uncles like their best friends.
  7. Aunts and uncles get to spoil their nieces and nephews on their birthdays and holidays, which makes them the favorite relative (for at least two days).

To all the aunts and uncles out there, we are wishing you an amazing day with the special little ones in your life!

3 Play Ideas for Cousin’s Day

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.
