100th day of school :: chinese abacus

We recently celebrated the 100th day of school and Wynter needed to put something together using 100 items.  We’ve done the sugar cube igloo, the skittle rainbow, and the board with ten of ten random items.  But this year … I, ahem, I mean we, decided to think outside of the box.  Or actually … given our activity … I guess we stayed inside the box, didn’t we? ;)

This here is a Chinese abacus.  An ancient counting tool … although I hear some actuarials still use it today!  {hee, you know who you are!}

Anyhoo … I found a pretty J.Crew shoe box, some colored twine, fruit loops, and Japanese paper tape.  Super easy … and pretty on the eyes too, don’t cha think?

    Hi, das ist ein interessanter Artikel. Wir haben für unsere Kiddies manche Baby Thermometer täglich
    parat! Eins mit dem meinereiner am Popo erfassen kann und
    ein anderes fürs Gehör. Dies eignet sich besonders
    fein, für den Fall, dass meinereiner das Fieber problemlos einmal nachmessen möchte – Auch wenn sie schlafen. Dabei ist es vollkommen ausreichend u.
    misst unserer Meinung nach selbst ganz vorteilhaft.

    Servus und besten Dank für den informativen Ratgeber – von mir bekommst du 5
    von 5 Punkte! Seither unsere Sippe um ein weiteres Mitglied erweitert wurde, verfügen wir ein perfektes Thermometer.
    Mit dem Fabrikat sind wir vielmehr als zufrieden! Diese Messung geht schmerzlos u.

    innerhalb von Sekunden. Um ein genaues Resultat zu erzielen, sollte man obgleich ein bis drei mal messen.
