  • Having Family Fun….

    posted 6th December 2016  |  Not tagged.

    All siblings like having fun with their family.  Having fun and laughing together is a very healthy thing to do. Even if your brother or sister is very ill or if family life is hard, having some fun times together will help you and everyone else feel better.  It is a good way to help everyone get on better with each other too.

     Some things you could do are ….

    • Watch a funny film together
    • Take turns to tell jokes
    • Play a game that makes the people in your family laugh, like charades
    • Try seeing who can keep a straight face the longest without  laughing
    • Talk about the funny side of things that have happened in your family

    Find out more at www.youngsibs.org.uk. It's a really useful website for brothers and sisters of disabled children.
