Sippy cup stand-in: lidded paper coffee cup

Amazon: NY Coffee Cup (100 paper cups with lids)Angela's almost-spillproof hack comes in handy on vacation, or on a quick errand run:

I just discovered a great stand-in for a sippy cup when traveling!  A paper coffee cup with a sipping lid!  A hotel we stayed at offers complimentary coffee, so cups were available in the lobby and in our hotel room.

For extra insurance, poke a straw through the sipping lid.

Love it! We've all had those times where the sippy cup has gotten left behind. This is a great quick fix!

This is great. Just got back from a trip and could have used this idea then. We will remember it.
