On one cup, draw a trail. You can draw the trail as you wish, with steps going up or numbers to follow. On the second cup draw an object or character to follow the trail. This can be a car, a spider, a butterfly, or whatever your child wishes to draw. You can follow the drawings in these images or make up your own.
