  • To the back of the card, tape a pencil one inch down from the top. The pencil should be long enough to get extended beyond the picture card.
  • Now tape the other card to the back of the first card. The pencil will be in between the cards.
  • The game is ready now. Now ask your child to hold the pencil with the palms and twirl it. If the child can't do it, you do it. Let the child observe.
