I recently discovered Happy Hooligans on Pinterest & began following their fun projects.
In the past month I've implemented 3 activities and my Little Ms are thrilled:)
The latest addition is this pool noodle abacus...
...ok, it's not technically an abacus but that's what it reminds me of:)
Here's how to make your own:
Saw the pool noodles into desired segments using a serrated knife.
Then slice through the top layer on each "bead".
Attach some rope/heavy twine in desired location & slide beads into place using the split tops.
I attached my hemp twine to a fence post & a small tree- it's perfect.
The following morning, my Little Ms went running over to see their "new toy"-
Jonah, especially has enjoyed arranging the abacus "beads":)
More outdoor fun= happy kids!
2 Pool Noodles: $2 (Dollar Tree)
