Instead of setting up the initial design for him, have the child mimic your design to reinforce spatial reasoning. As you are giving instructions during the game, you can be more specific with the directions such as “slide your spoon to the left.”
The younger child will need more time watching you flip, slide, and turn the objects. Therefore, do not use the menu between you. Continue to reinforce the language of flip, slide, and turn as you manipulate the objects and assist the child as needed.
