Cup Stacking

When my girls were little and they started school in Texas, part of their physical education classes included "cup stacking."  The Mister and I had never heard of such a thing.  Turns out our #2 showed quite a talent for this much heralded skill.  When I came across this video I was reminded of the good old days.

Hope your cup was half full this weekend!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Ha! My girls too. Great for hand-eye coordination, and motor skills. However, I think at least one of mine has taken it to a whole other level...Red Solo Cup...just saying...funny how games played as a child emerge in a different form in college! LOL

  2. Oh those dogs! I never heard of cup stacking either, thanks for sharing!!!

  3. That was fantastic! I'm not sure East coast schools do that. My gym classes were rigorous and when the bell rang, we always had to run around the field one more time before showers. Cup stacking looks like so much more fun.

  4. LOL- My grandgirls do that, too. So funny! xo Diana

  5. Can't wait to find out what you are up to. It's certainly not cup stacking!

  6. There is a great scene in the movie Pitch Perfect in which Anna Kendrick sings this song and does an AMAZING cups routine. Love it! And as Simply LKJ says, certainly a more innocent use of the iconic red solo cup!


Tuckernuck for Spring!
