Therapy Idea of the Week – "Sport Stacking" (Also Known as 'Cup Stacking' and 'Speed Stacking')
I found this video in my Google Alerts this morning showing off the amazing motor dexterity of three year old Nathan Robles, who is division champion of the World Sport Stacking Association
Seeing the video reminded me that “speed stacking” (now called “sport stacking”) this is a super-fun way to work on eye-hand coordination with your kiddos. They are also useful for developing sequencing and patterning skills. It would also be a great “sport” to try to celebrate the London Paralympics in the classroom.
Speed/Sport Stacking meets several criteria of the NASPE for physical education, and has been recognized by researchers, kinesiologists and therapists as an excellent activity for cross lateralization/crossing the midline.
Watch this beautiful video of “Special Stackers” in Action!
