My dd was 4yo when we started doing some rod play beyond free play. She started Orange at 5yo....still, it's sporadic; not like we plow through the book iykwim.
Current 4yo is in the play stage. I'm ordering Orange for him so we'll have it next year, but am in no hurry to start.

We did do Lab Sheets, play, directed play, homemade Lab Sheets, many activities based on ideas from the First Grade Diary, ideas "stolen" from the RS Activities for AL Abacus book (some translated to rods and blocks), activities involving things I made up, and sheets my then 4 year old made himself.
And we made cards with red dots to represent 1-10 Japanese math style (two rows of 5 to make Ten, and Tally stick style, and regular numerals. And used RS place value cards and base-10 cards, and modeled three digit numers using base-10 "flats" (100s) Orange C Rods (10s) and C Rods (Units) as well as modeling them on an AL Abacus. Stuff like that.
Short answer, 4
