Good ole plastic cups can be a great source of entertaiment in all sorts of ways. We actually have a set that is used just for play. They make great nerf or slingshot targets, chicken noises, races and jumping minions.

They are also great for stacking in different ways. This way uses cups along with paper (this is thicker cardstock) and can get pretty high!

Start with two cups upside down and a paper on top.

  1. I gave my grandkids a Costco size pack of these cups and let them do whatever they wanted. Kept them busy for over a week. Best 6 bucks I ever spent.

  2. This is such a fun and frugal activity! I will be trying this with my kids. Pinned and stumbled!
