Fun Activities with Seasonal Erasers

I love getting the seasonal erasers from target. Here are some of the fun hands on activities that we use with them.

I posted on facebook about making sure you check out the fun Halloween erasers in the target dollar section or I guess it is called One Spot now I think. Someone asked what I did with them, so here is a post about some of the ways I use those erasers. I’m going to show you two different ways that we use them.

What you need: 3 sets of erasers (I got mine from the Target Dollar Section)

Hands on Shape Matching

For the first activity I traced the erasers shapes on a paper.

She took the erasers and matching them up on the page. This was tons of fun for her to do. We talked about the shapes

Making Patterns

The next activity is doing hands on pattern making. I give her several basic patterns to start with. This is something easy you can do.

I let her choose which pattern she will start with. She slowly takes her time to fill out the patterns. After she finishes a set we review the pattern that she has finished.

These small eraser make for great hands on fine motor! With so many different hands on activities they can be used many different ways. I collect them and save them for many uses. Just remember they are small and should be used with children that wont put them in their mouth.

Here are some other ideas you can do:
