Place them in a jar, bowl, or similar.

Pick one 'horse' at a time and perform the exercise corresponding as per below.

For example, if you picked: #12 - WHO SHOT THE BARMAN, you would perform 20 Sea Turtles.

Once you complete the exercise, chose another 'horse' and continue.  You can either choose a certain number of horses or if you do this with someone else, you could make it into a game to see who gets to 12 first etc.
