My children are good about drinking water, but they're not so great about keeping track of who was using which cup. Washing all the cups every day was not a great plan for any of us, considering none of us particularly enjoyed washing dishes.
I found the answer at Hobby Lobby:
This solved several problems:
- encouraging the kids to drink a lot of water during the hot summer days
- keeping track of which cup belonged to which child
- fewer spills
When I bought ours they were on sale and I paid $0.60 each. $2.40 for peace of mind and fewer dishes is money well spent and we still have them this summer.
And yes, they could be further customized or decorated. If you're wondering why I haven't, let me just plead the excuse: I have five children. The only problem now is the iBoy (1 year old) wants one too.
How do you get your kids to drink more water? Do you have a favorite way of keeping track of cups?
