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?
