I love mini erasers! Especially these super cute smiley faces from the Target Dollar Spot. They were the perfect addition to our mini eraser collection! This smiley face mini eraser activity pack for preschoolers is a great way to use the mini erasers for learning. With ten-frames, matching, sorting, patterns and more this free printable pack is so much fun! And no worries if you can’t find the erasers, I’ve included a set of printable smiley faces so that you can still enjoy the activities.
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.

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 smiley face mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each owl in the ten-frame.
Smiley Face Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place a smiley face mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct smiley face. 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 smiley faces on each color and discuss which color has the most, the least or the same.
Smiley Face Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place a smiley face 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.
Smiley Face I Spy Counting Game
Use the smiley face mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of eraser.
Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Smiley Face 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.
Smiley Face 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!
