Cut fish shapes out of colored construction paper.
On each fish write a different instruction: "Find something red"; "Count to ten"; "Touch your face"; "Sing a song"; "Shake your neighbor's hand"and so on.

Place the fish in a box or container and let each participant pick one fish at a time.

You or he read the instruction and have him perform it. You may want to do some of the things with the whole group depending on the skill level of the participants and the commands you have written.
