Thoughts & Suggestions

If group members master these tasks, try having them complete another task while they pay attention to which balloons to tap. For example they could kick a soccer ball around or name off states and cities. Illustrate that they still need to control their impulses when they’re otherwise distracted.

Or try assigning different members different areas to cover, this teaches them to stay in their boundaries.
