Cup stacking (2 - 3 year olds)

Help your toddler develop hand/eye coordination at home

Home Learning

What to do

Cup stacking is a fun and easy way for your child to develop their hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills. The activity can be altered to assembling and reassembling a cup pyramid to make it more difficult for the older years and to further develop your child’s hand/eye coordination. You can also make it into a challenge if you have more than one child and after showing an example of how to create the pyramid, time the children and see who can make the tallest pyramid in a certain amount of time!
