Variations and Extensions


Make Your Own

  • 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 nine "10" cards plus the unit cards 1-9.
  • These could be made out of poster board:

    (For a detailed description of how this was done, see A Handmade Childhood.)
  • 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.
