Response to Gosh darnit, more annoying tricks!
I never used to let them wander about with sippy cups. I just used to offer them a drink at various opportunities throughout the day. At mealtimes, if we were doing an activity together, while we were out during the day etc.
Just regularly offer them a drink of water then take them away would be my advice. Of course I do understand you may not be there all the time, and that is where I totally agree that nothing but water in them is a good idea.
If you see them do the spitting etc. I would get down to their level, give them a firm 'no' and remove the cups immediately. Otherwise don't react as that may escalate the issue.
They need a lot of supervision at this age and it is immensly boring, frustrating and thankless. BUT it will get better I promise...
