Stacking Up, Up, Up
Throughout the school year a small handful of the ASC (after-school children) had turned some little cups that were suppose to hold beads, into a cup stacking activity. Last week I added 60 more cups to the few we had and now it's one of the top 5 activities. The stacks range from small to grandiose and challenges ensue to see whose stacks go highest or how intricate they can design them. The giggles, gasps and faces that follow a crashing of unbalanced cups, is priceless! Challenge: Create stacks, towers and bridges using only the little plastic cups!
