The opinions expressed here are my own.
When we adapted, the boys would flip one card over to show the group of fruit. I would call out a number (1-5) or a fruit name for the boys to start counting fruit. The youngest would get a head start at counting while the older one closed his eyes. For the token game, they would choose which number or fruit they would look for in each card before looking at the card. It made it easier for the 3 year old.
