Sometimes I am asked why.
To improve concentration and problem solving skills.
To stimulate and strengthen the hand.
To improve coordination.
To create good work habits.
To extend and challenge the child.
For a keeping it real moment. What I'm sure every child does with the cup.
As a side note Otis is now drinking from his cup with one hand all of the time. I think it's a true sign that he is observing us and following our lead.
