If you’re on the hunt for ways to celebrate your sisters, whether that’s coming together for a little quality time via a game or movie night, or exploring your family history, we’ve rounded up a few activities you can do together to celebrate National Sisters Day.

1. Discover your origins together with a DNA test kit

Discover more about your sister with AncestryDNA.

If you and your sister are interested in learning more about your family’s history, AncestryDNA might be a good place to start. You can get kit for $99, and send it in to learn about your origins. We tried out AncestryDNA with several different pairs of siblings, and found that each pair learned about their individual origins, as well as the ways in which their DNA differed from one another (we also had a lot of fun doing it).
