Drag and Drop: Move drop object behind another item.

I'm creating a drag and drop interaction where the user drops an item into a trash can. The item is dropped onto a hotspot and then using motion path drops down behind the trash can image.

Currently I have the drop object and hotspot set up behind (further down the timeline) the trash can.

I've got the motion path working but the drop item keeps moving in front of the trash can instead of behind it. Any suggestions why this might be?

Hi Alyssa, thank you for the reply. 

I had considered this and it will probably be my fallback but I'd prefer a smoother transition as the state change can be quite jarring - I'd worry the learner might think there was a bug. I tried applying animations to the state change but it did not work.

I'm having a similar but different problem. I'm wanting the top most drag & drop object set by "reveal drag items one at a time" to be in the foreground of the drop zone items. However it seems like the target zone objects are given foreground status regardless of any other settings. I would have thought that the top most item to drag & drop would be given foreground status. Any suggestions? Not sure if this is just a limitation of the feature or my lack of knowhow.
