- An easy alternative would be to simply make a set of cards just like those used for the work with the Golden Beads, only for this set you would need a set of "tens" cards plus a set of "units" cards.
- These were made from strips of masonite with strips of wooden dowels used for dividers. The numbers were printed on self adhesive paper and then stuck on.
