Lots of arena designing this week at DivinityFarm as I attached my home made (knit out of trash bags) basket for tossing activities. I have a bag of weirdly textured balls (i.e. koosh, squishy etc) all ready to use.
I made this stop sign out of a red manilla folder. I figure the octagon red shape with the word STOP is pretty basic in terms of learning to read, learn about danger and follow directions to pull/reins and stop. It will be interesting to see if our work during hippotherapy helps one of my clients learn to recognize and respond to the word STOP.

Placing the wider length piece of Velcro simulates placing stickers and placing the smaller piece on the top right hand corner simulates attaching a stamp.
If you need to simplify start off by using an "envelope" with only one of the velcro shapes attached (either the label or stamp shapes).
Provide several of these to give students lots of practice on a skill that may be useful in a pre-vocational setting.
