I'm always looking for things to do with my kids that will bring us together, challenge them, and maybe even bring a little healing or improvement in areas of struggle. This week I whipped out an oldie, but a goodie.
The cup game (a.k.a. the cup beat).
I can't say enough about how wonderful this is for us. I'm also kicking myself for not having thought of it sooner. Who would've thought that the painfully annoying game we played in the cafeteria those many years ago would have therapeutic value!
It challenges all of us through:
Throw in that it's really fun (or when a cup goes flying - really FUNNY), and the kids think they are so crazy cool to be able to do it.
There are more videos showing this little beat than you would ever have time to watch. So, do some YouTube searches and get to crackin'!
