10 Fun Ways To Play with Cups

There are a lot of activities you can do with just a stack of cups – here are some ideas:

Stacking Cups
All you have to do is show your little one how to stack the
cups on top of each other. Start with a few cups and then keeping adding more and more. For older kids have a timer around and time their progress.

3 Cups and a Hidden Object
Use three paper cups and hide one object under
one of them. The move the cups around and challenge your little one to find out where the hidden object is.

Number Cups
Write numbers on top of each cup then draw dots on a paper. L
et your little one count and match.

Colour Sorting Cups
Just mark each cup with a colour, then put around some
colorful objects (pom-poms, LEGOs, paper pieces) and let your little one sort them by colour.

Pass the Water
Give your little one cup full of water and 5 empty cups. The challenge
them to pour the water from one cup to another without wasting any water.

Cups Falling
Toss a small ball up in the air, then catch with the same cup.

Cup Tower
Challenge your little one to build a tall tower

Cup Bowling
Arrange the cups to look like bowling pins and give your little
one a small ball to knock them down with

Cup Racing
Poke a hole near the edge of the
bottom of the cups, then thread a piece of string through each hole. Then you can race to propel the cups along the string using a water sprayer.

Cups Facing Up or Down
This one is great for getting your little one to move about!
Scatter as many cups as you can around your play space, with half facing up and half down. At “Go,” your little one has to change the direction of as many cups as he can.
