simple bead counting toy

I saw these in a classroom I was in today so on the way home I flew into Spotlight and bought two packets of beads. I thought it would make a perfect 'after tea and bath but too early for bedtime' activity for Mae and Thomas. It's really easy, just untwist the wire at the hanger part and thread the beads on. When the beads are on, just re- twist the wire part back together. I used 4 different coloured beads so that the kids could see lots of 5 and 10 and later on use it count in 2s, 5s and 10s.
