Seguins Teens boards

I made these the other day, they are just 2 pieces of wood then I glued the wood strips across to make ridges to hold the numbers, took me about 10 minutes. The numbers I did on the computer, they are in Flickr if you want to download them, here and here. I didn't stick the numbers to the boards so that I can reuse the boards as Sequins tens boards afterwards.
Sequins teen board is to help reinforce the numbers 11-19, Ebi-kun can count way past 19 but seeing the numerals throws him. We started with the first three 11, 12 and 13. Next time I will add a couple more numbers, he wasn't really interested but he could see I had taken the beads out too. I told him that when he knows all the numbers he can use them with the beads, the beads are such a motivator at the moment.

And here is one of the little creations I have been working on for Christmas presents, I can't show you everything because the new owners read this, but these little chaps are for a little boy I know, made from wool felt, they are lovely and soft, feel much nicer than snow!
