Maths Manipulatives

Any recommendations on maths manipulatives for 5 year olds? We also have some younger kids around, so ideally also suited for smaller children. And any advice on activities fellow teachers have tried and were engaging would be a plus :)

Joan,

Obviously having non larger materials where hands can easily grip may be better for the littles. You can event take them outside to find items to sort into groups and count. Don't think you have to buy items when nature is your playground.
