Is it physically possible to pass the Target Dollar Spot without checking for new goodies? I’m not sure I have ever just walked past without looking! They always have so many fun things that can be used for school. But my hands-down favorite things are the mini-erasers. I always pick up two bags of every kind that I see. (Each bag usually has 60 in it and I want to be able to have 100 matching erasers.) Today’s “Fill the Jar” Mini Erasers Addition Game was inspired by all of those cute little erasers!
Materials Needed for the “Fill the Jar” Mini Erasers Addition Game:
Small jar (mine was 4 oz.)
Pencil and Paper
Hundreds Chart (optional)
This is a no-prep activity!! Unless you choose the optional hundreds chart you just need to set the supplies on the table and go!
To play: Roll the die (or dice if you want an extra challenge.) Place that number of erasers into the jar and record the number on a piece of paper.
Continue until the jar is filled.
Then, add up all the numbers to find out how many erasers it takes to fill the jar.
With optional hundreds chart:
Instead of writing the numbers on a piece of paper, fill one square on the hundreds chart for each mini eraser that is added to the jar. When the jar is full, the hundreds chart will show you how many erasers you used.
That’s it! A simple no-prep addition game!
