I simply cannot resist the Target Dollar Spot. No matter what I go into Target for, the Dollar Spot always draws me in… Doesn’t hurt that I can always find the cutest mini erasers!! These owl mini eraser math activities for preschoolers is a great way to use those irresistible mini erasers! And if you can’t find the mini erasers, there are printable owls included in the pack, so you can still enjoy the activities.
Materials for the Owl Mini Eraser Activities for Preschoolers:
Multi-colored owl 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 owl 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 owl mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each owl in the ten-frame.
Owl Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place an owl mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct owl. 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 owls on each color and discuss which owl has the most, the least or the same.
Owl Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place an owl 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.
Owl I Spy Counting Game
Use the owl mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of owls.
Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Owl 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.
Owl 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 owl as the child spins the spinner. Such a fun way to learn about matching & colors!
