Designed to drive tactile exploration, beginner players can start by getting acquainted with the different objects through simple touch and feel. Later on, other skills can be put into play by hiding the objects in the sheep’s stomach. For instance, as all the objects come in pairs, one of each can be placed outside for visual reference while players are instructed to feel around the sheep's belly for a specific item. Encourage a successful grab by providing helpful descriptions that can develop both language and observational skills through active listening: Can you pick out the cheese? The cheese is wide but flat; and has many holes.
For more advanced players, put all the objects in the sheep's stomach, and then take turns trying to find a matching pair purely by touching and feeling. (Click here for full game instructions in English [Page 3].)
