I started The Paper Cup Project by making a batch of (dairy free) Paper Cup Smoothie Pops!
These are so simple and delicious!
Here is the recipe:
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 medium banana
- 1 cup of vanilla almond milk
- Place in blender
- Pour into cups (you can stop there and enjoy or you can make FROZEN Smoothie Pops!)
I like to write questions and math equations on the sticks for my kids. They love it!
Freeze for 4 to 6 hours.
Tear cup off and enjoy!
The devoured them!
We also got crafty during The Paper Cup Project!
We made a Paper Cup Wind Chime!
This another simple, but fun project that encourages motor skill refinement and counting. You can also use it for patterns, colors and sequencing!
All we used was:
I tied a bead at one end of the string as an anchor. I tied the other end around a toothpick and it forms a mock needle and thread.
The kids threaded beads on to strings.
Once they were done, I used the toothpick to poke through the paper cup, removed the toothpick and then secured the string with a knot.
It turned out really cute and my kids enjoyed working together on a project.
So what can you do with paper cups?
