Counting on ones fingers is the most natural thing to do. All young children start to count, using their fingers and the good thing is, our fingers are always here to help us! The two hands, with 5 fingers each, form a very clear structure in which you recognize quantities at a glance. Children continue to use their fingers to help them, even when they are no longer supposed to, sometimes hidden under the table. But when counting on the fingers is used as a standard for counting and developing an understanding of number concepts, it will have a positive result. And after a while they can count and understand numbers without using their fingers. The counting hands are supplied in a set of 2 hands, made of thick plywood. The fingers can be bent because of the elastic in the joints.
