Activity: Paper Cup Crafts

Paper cups are inexpensive (you may already have some around your house!) and can be used for a wide variety of crafts — many of which are easy for kids!

We detail some of the popular paper cup crafts below.

  • Miniature plant hangers: Wrap the top edge of the cup (below the lip) in ribbon and attach strings so the cup can hang. Add a small plant or fake flower as decor.
  • Animals: Turn a paper cup upside down and paint it or add things like googly eyes and felt rabbit ears to create cute animal figures! They won’t last forever since paper cups are crushable, but can provide your kids with several afternoons of fun.
  • Paper cup castle: Paint and stack paper cups to create a castle! Glue them together if you don’t want the castle to fall over, and you can cut in features like doors and windows.
  • Instruments: Fill your paper cups with different shakable things — marbles, rice, etc. Cover the top of the cup in plastic or tin foil to use them as instruments! Each filling will make a different sound. Wrap a rubber band around the plastic or foil for extra protection from spills.
  • Wind chimes: Poke a hole in the bottom of each cup. Stick a string through the hole and knot it, so the cup doesn’t fall off of the string. Attach the other end of the string to a clothes hanger. Repeat with each cup, and be sure to vary the length of the strings.
