Tip: When using the sharpie on the Ziploc bag it may smudge a little. To prevent this, blow on it for a second or two before moving your ruler to help dry the marker.

Next, add clear hair gel or baby oil into the Ziploc. You will want to add enough so that it is easy to move the counting chips with your finger.

To properly use a ten-frame start by counting out one counter in each frame. Start from the top left and move to the right until all five are filled. Then start on the next frame again adding counters left to right.
