Did you grab all the mini erasers that Target has been selling in their Bullseye playground the last few months? I sure did! So many fun choices! It’s been hard to keep up with making printables to go along with all the different mini erasers, but I’m working on it! These free printable gumball mini eraser counting grids for preschool are a super fun way to work on counting skills and fine motor with your preschoolers. (I even included a Spanish version in case you need those!)

Printable Mini Eraser Counting Games for Preschoolers

These printable mini eraser counting games for preschoolers are a great way to tie math and fine motor skills together.

My daughter loves all of my mini erasers and is always looking for a reason to raid my stash. I have seriously lost track of how many different mini erasers we have.

This bubblegum mini eraser is a great way to work on her counting skills while she 100% feels like she is playing. Because no way is she doing any ‘work’ for me right now…. #mindofherown

So as soon as these came off the printer, I sent them through the laminator before she could even see them.

Because there is no way I would let her use one of our activities without laminating first. (And because everything we do now gets sent to our daycare preschool room and no way is a piece of paper going to survive more than five minutes with all those kids!)

I mean, I use HP Instant Ink to save a ton of money, but I hate having to print activities a bunch of times just because I didn’t get it laminated before the kids “love” on it.

Anyway, enough about our laminating issues… these printables are perfect for building preschool counting skills and even work great with kindergarteners and first graders who are working on counting to 100.

If you didn’t find bubblegum mini erasers at your local Target when they were available, you can substitute with pom poms, counting chips, or other math manipulatives that you have on hand. There’s no need to skip enjoying this activity just because you couldn’t find the mini erasers.

Mini erasers are great for working on fine motor skills with your preschoolers without them even realizing they are working.

My daughter loved playing candy store with all the bubblegum machines!

Spanish Counting Games for Preschool

Many schools are adding Spanish into the curricula in early elementary, so I also included a Spanish version for you to use.

This is perfect for math centers in Spanish immersion schools and classrooms or even if you just want to introduce your kids to another language.

Simply roll the dice and let your preschoolers count the correct number of bubblegum mini erasers to place on the counting grid. Continue until the grid is filled.
