DIY Pool Noodle Abacus

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)
Hemp Twine: free
TOTAL: $2!!!

 Thanks for stopping by,
