Part of my "#2 Pencil Series" that started with the my #2 Pencil Rekenrek I wanted to do a quick and easy project. Now kids, its NOT meant to be used as a missile. The aerodynamics are all wrong. But it will keep your pencil upright when you are in missing planning mode. And the nose can work for some hands as a pencil grip.
Note: when installing the base unit, go from the top. The hole is not large for the metal/eraser end to pass.
Also, the pieces from the rekenrek can be used with this as well for math games.
