Simply write numbers on the sticks, you can use both sides. Number the pegs, use both sides if you need too. The first set I made was for numbers 0-10. (I used two different colors, you can use as many colors and numbers as you desire.) I left out numbers, leaving enough space for the peg number to clip into place.

The next set was made for skip counting in 2's and 10's. You can make how many ever sets you need. The possibilities are endless! Place these sticks into a small pencil case or ziplock bag and you have a busy bag activity to take along on long rides or for keeping kids occupied when waiting at the doctors office etc.
