While cruising the aisles of our local drug store last week, I squealed when I saw these packages of plastic shot glasses. Fortunately my husband knows me well enough that he smiles rather than roll his eyes. He knows I've found something exciting for preschool. Yep, plastic shot glasses. I've seen colored plastic cups being used on light tables, but when I saw the shot glasses, I thought they'd fit our preschoolers' hands better than regular sized cups.
These are the ones I used, but I provided a link at the end of this post from Amazon for some other possibilities.
I added glass gems (I included those in the Amazon link below as well).
The children loved stacking the cups, and I noticed they were trying to stack them either by color, or in a pattern.
I provided a 1 gallon container that sat at the side of the table to store the gems. The children loved scooping the gems out of the container with the cups, pouring the gems from cup to cup, and then dumping the gems back into the container. This area was never empty of children the entire time!
Make sure to provide a small broom and dust pan for easy clean up
if when the gems fall on the floor.
