Kids in Motion - Cup Flips
Here is a fun and physical activity to play against the clock!
Start by placing several cups right side up on the floor. Set up a second set of cups upside down about 8 feet away from the first set. Challenge your child to race back and forth between the sets, turning one cup over each on each run until all the cups that were right side up are now upside down, and all the cups that were upside down are now right side up! Time how long the race took, and challenge your child to beat the best time.
You can change this game in lots of ways: Increase or decrease the distance between cups. Increase or decrease the number of cups. Race until all the cups are back in their original positions. Make sets of cups for each player for a multi-player or multi-team race.
Have fun flipping the cups!
