For kids who learn better through visual and tactile experiences, an abacus is a great way to learn about numbers and arithmetic.
This abacus is easy to make. It contains 10 rows of 10 beads each, so that numbers up to 100 can be represented. If you introduce the concept of positional notation, much larger numbers can be represented.
You can decorate this learning tool to make it even more attractive.
