Who can resist mini erasers? Not me, that’s for sure! I have been collecting every set that I find in the Target Dollar Spot to use with my kids! If you don’t have the star mini erasers I have included a printable set of stars at the end of these free star mini eraser activities for preschoolers, so that you can still enjoy the fun activities.
Materials for the Star Mini Eraser Activities for Preschoolers:
Multi-colored star 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 star 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 star mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each star in the ten-frame.
Star Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place a star mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct star. 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 stars on each color and discuss which star has the most, the least or the same.
Star Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place a star 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.
Star I Spy Counting Game
Use the star mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of stars.
Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Star 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.
Star 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 star as the child spins the spinner. Such a fun way to learn about matching & colors!
