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.
How to make a Rekenrek? 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
4 T joints
4 end covers
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

Enjoy the rest of your week!
