Nesting Cups are great for development in all areas!
Speech: Earn cups following word imitations as a reinforcement.
Language: Target the concepts ‘big/small’, ‘up/down’, and ‘tall/short’. Work on colors, counting, requesting, turn-taking, joint attention, and using action words ‘go, down, stack’ etc.
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: Fine motor skills are needed to grasp and release the cups, and visual motor skills are used to stack or nest them in size sequence. Increase the challenge by finding small colored manipulatives like buttons or pom pom craft balls to grasp with fingers or tongs and release into the same-color cups! Use bilateral coordination to bang two cups together.
Sensory: Nesting cups can be used with many sensory activities: water play, sand play, shaving cream, play dough, slime!
Gross Motor: These cups can be placed around the room with a piece of paper underneath describing how many reps of an exercise to do or a gross motor task to complete. These are also great for toddlers to crawl for or stack while at a support surface.
