Mini Erasers make awesome math manipulatives! They are super affordable, numerous and come in hundreds of cute shapes and designs to fit any season or theme. For this #toolsforlearning post, I’ve created a fun printable grid math game for Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day Grid Math Game with Mini Erasers
Supplies & Materials:
- Valentine Mini Erasers
- Downloaded Grid Game printable
- Paper Cutter or scissors
- Laminator sheets
How to Prep:
- Download free grid game HERE & print off as many copies as you need. One per student is usually enough.
- The rest of the preparations are optional really, but next you might want to trim off the excess paper, paste onto cardstock, trim the excess and laminate for durability. Especially if you plan to use this game in a classroom or for multiple years.
- Once your grid game boards are prepped, set up your game table with enough mini erasers to fill all the spaces and a number die. Now its ready to play!
How to Play:
Grid games are a simple, yet fun way for preschoolers to practice counting and one-to-one correspondence. This grid game has twelve squares, other grid games I’ve made only has nine squares.
To play, players take turns rolling a number die and covering the squares with the mini erasers. The first player to cover all their squares is the winner.
