Courtesy of my seven-year old son who came up with the pattern himself (it’s three pieces of paper — no tape, of course) without instructions.
Me: What some people do is imagine a pleasant meadow with some sheep jumping over a fence. You count them as they jump over.
My son: Doesn’t work. Tried it.
Me: Well, how many sheep did you count?
My son: One.
My Son: Only one showed up!
Later, “Daddy, instead of sheep I’m counting horses doing different activities. I also counted a vampire.”
