Minute to Win it Game ~ Cup Stacking
I love it when kids are entertained by simple things. I don’t know how many Christmas mornings and Birthday’s we watched our little ones enjoy the box more than the present. Today the girls played a simple Cup Stacking game during Sunday School. They were so excited and couldn’t wait to get home and show us their new skills.
Cup Stacking Supplies:
The thing I love about Minute to Win it games is that they use regular house hold objects. Things we already have around our house. For this game you will need:
- 36 disposable plastic cups
- A flat surface like a table
- A stop watch or one minute timer
- a group of friends to cheer you on ~ not necessary but way more fun.
Stack Attack ~ a simple Minute to Win it Game
Place the cups in a single stack on the table. When the one minute timer begins, pick up the stack of cups and begin creating a triangular-shaped tower. Your bottom row should contain 8 cups, then you stack 7 cups on top, stack 6 cups in the next row and continue on ending the tower with a single cup.
Once you have the tower built, quickly deconstruct the tower into a single stack. Your goal is to build a tower and take it down in less than a minute.
(The girls ended up adding a few more than 36 cups just to see how tall they could get their towers.)
I love how tall they made this stack. Bree ended up standing on the couch to add the last few cups.
The girls were in total concentration mode as their tower of stacked cups grew. So cute! They had fun beating the clock individually and as a team.
I LOVE Annika’s expressive face. Every cup that was placed she got more and more hilarious!
I enjoyed listening to the girls work together to build the largest tower of cups possible. There was lots of giggling, squealing, and nervous gasps. Who knew a few cups could be that exciting!
