Homemade abacuses

I am in the process of teaching and my little guy is in the process of learning his numbers. 
Here was a fun hands on idea. 

What we used:
If you don't have all the items you could use: 
Popsicle sticks, skewers cut and small noodles. 

Here are our homemade abacuses. It is a great math manipulative. 

While learning numbers here we have also done a number train and a number snake which my little guy has really liked also. 
Here is the link for the number snake: Snake and Numbers
Learning and teaching...In my west corner,

Love this idea...what are the sticks? Are the skewers that you cut down? I have everything else just need to know what the skinny sticks are?

Jackie, Truth is someone gave me some craft supplies and gave me these skinny little sticks however... skewers stick are about the same size. You can cut them down to size and they would work fine. :) Hope this helps.
