How to make a Rekenrek

Last week at my conference I shared the rekenrek my husband made me and I promised to post directions. I gave the ones he made me away as door prizes and I forgot to take a picture. Thankfully someone else took a picture at the conference. There are many different versions of rekenreks that you can make. My friend, Kim Adsit has this version that I really like but I wanted something a little taller with wider legs, so I had my husband change things up a little bit.
These are really easy to make and inexpensive! It cost about $12.00 to make.
List of materials: Two different colored pool noodles 2- 10" pieces of 1/2"" pvc pipe 2 elbows 4 T joints 4 end covers
To assemble: Cut your pipe in the sizes listed above. Measure and cut your pool noodles. I made mine using 1 1/2" cuts you will need 10 of each color NOTE: 2 pool noodles will make 3 rekenreks

If you're wondering what in the heck a rekenrek is you can download this great resource for FREE HERE! It has tons of activities that you can use with your rekenrek.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
