Math Board

I came up with this mini abacus to make C because she is very into math right now. She is always asking me, "What is 5+7" or "What is 3+3+3?".

I took a piece of cardboard, cut slots on the sides and added some yarn and beads. Pretty easy.

And now she can do her own math facts :)


I am thinking of writing the number of beads next to each row.

  6. It's great! Very good idea. But why you didn't put the 1 and the 2? I just wonder it, to make one, too.

    1. You can make one with one and 2 if you want. I guess I am not sure why I didn't.
