My preschooler loves playing with our mini erasers. We have at least 15 different kinds.
Actually, we had more, but some fell victim to a slime incident… let’s just say that I am not willing to rescue 100 mini polar bears that have been buried in ‘snow’ slime and dried out. Totally beyond my pay grade. *wink*
I make it a point to check the Dollar Spot for new mini erasers every time I go to Target.
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 donut mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each donut in the ten-frame.
Donut Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place a donut mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct donut. 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 donuts on each color and discuss which donut has the most, the least or the same.
Donut Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place a donut 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.
Donut I Spy Counting Game
Use the donut mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of donuts. Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Donut 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.
Donut 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 donut as the child spins the spinner. Such a fun way to learn about matching & colors!
