Speed-stack cups in specific sequences as an individual or a team, either against the clock or other players.
What’s in it for your child?
- It’s been scientifically proven that cup stacking improves children’s ambidexterity, concentration and hand-eye coordination by up to 30%
- Cup stacking uses both sides of the brain, improving your child’s reaction time and even reading comprehension
- It’s really fun – it’s got the ‘cool’ factor
- Athleticism is not a necessary prerequisite to cup stacking — less sporty kids can do just as well or even better than more athletic kids
- Kids can practice on their own or with friends
- You don’t need special cups to start stacking — just find three same-size, relatively stiff plastic cups
- It’s crucial to have a firm, flat surface that’s been cleared of any breakables
- Start off with cups tucked into each other, then set up a pyramid, then take it apart
- Add in more cups or more complicated sequences as kids grow more confident with the skill
