I think the best handout for this one is actually a cardboard tube. Grab a paper towel or toilet paper tube and decorate them in class with pictures from the Friend or other handouts. Go for a walk and play I Spy. You can bring things back to the classroom to glue on or wrap some duct tape around the tube backwards so the sticky part is out and add on as you go.
