Pull Cup

I saw this amazing idea for a toddler pull box from We Can Do All Things. I used the same idea, but made it into a pull cup.

To make it, cut slits into the bottom of a plastic cup. Make sure to use a very sharp knife. Be extra careful! Once the initial slits are cut, you can make them slightly bigger by sliding the top of the knife across the edges of the slit. This really helps to make the ribbon slide through the slit easily.

Next, get ribbons in different colors (I did the colors of the rainbow) and put them through the slits. Finish by tying a knot on both ends of each ribbon (the end on the outside of the cup and the end on the inside of the cup).


Give the pull cup to your child with the ribbons pulled all the way inside of the cup until the knot stops them. Have your toddler grab the ribbon and pull it through the slit. Once all of the ribbons are through, your toddler can turn the cup around and pull the ribbons back through the other way.

I highly suggest getting a set of pattern blocks. They are a great learning tool for young children!

To use these fun cards, print them off, laminate them for durability, then use the correct pattern blocks to cover the cards.
