Did you have a mini eraser collection as a kid? They are so cute and fun to collect! I love that the Target Dollar Spot has brought mini erasers new life and I love using them in our hands-on learning activities! These arrow mini eraser math activities for preschoolers is a fun way to bring the love for mini erasers and hands-on learning together! And no worries, if you missed out on buying the mini erasers… I included a set of printable arrows so that everyone can enjoy the activities.
Materials for the Arrow Mini Eraser Activities for Preschoolers:
Multi-colored arrow mini-erasers (from the Target Dollar Spot)
3 Paper clips
Scissors or paper cutter
Simple prep: Print & laminate the activities. Cut apart the counting cards. Assemble the three spinner activities by placing the paper clips onto the paper fasteners and poking them through the center of the spinners. Attach a small piece of tape to the back of the paper fastener to secure it.
12 pages of fun arrow math activities for your preschoolers!
I absolutely cannot go into Target without checking to see if there are new mini erasers. We already have a collection of them, but there are so many fun ways to use them!
Ten-Frames & Tracing Cards for Counting to 10
Use an erasable crayon or marker to trace the number words on each card. Then use the arrow mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each arrow in the ten-frame.
Arrow Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place an arrow mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct arrow. This is a great time to work on naming colors because they will have the opportunity to repeat them many times. You can also work on counting when the child decides they are done spinning.
Count the arrow on each color and discuss which arrow has the most, the least or the same.
Arrow Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place an arrow mini-eraser in the correct column on the graph. Continue until one of the colors reaches the top of the graph. This is another great opportunity to discuss more than, less than or equal.
Arrow I Spy Counting Game
Use the arrow mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of arrow.
Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Arrow Pattern Mats
3 levels of difficulty make these pattern mats perfect for everyone! Work on ABAB, ABC, and AABB patterns with these simple pattern mats.
Arrow Counting to 10 Mat
A simple mat for counting to 10! The kid will fill in each box and count up to each number. Great for reinforcement of rote counting skills and perfect for kids who are just beginning to count since the boxes will fill up when they add the correct number of mini erasers.
Spin & Cover Color Game
Cover the correct color of arrow as the child spins the spinner. Such a fun way to learn about matching & colors!
