Rafi from Ohlone Elementary School in U.S. said:

When his head is turning right, you turn it once, and then start counting by fours.  If it's pointing upwards, just count by fours.  If it's pointing downwards, count two, then count by fours.  If it's pointing left, count three, and then count by fours.  It is easy because, every time, you count how many get to that direction, and then start counting by fours.
