Mini Eraser Storage Solution and activities to use with those fun little math manipulatives.

I don’t know about you, but I am always super excited about the mini erasers I find.  Behold – an amazing Mini Eraser Storage Solution and some great activities to use with those fun little math manipulatives.  (This articles contain affiliate links).

I found this AMAZING container on Amazon and thought to myself MINI ERASERS!  So I took a risk and ordered it and it worked PERFECTLY!  I am slightly obsessed.  The bin is the ArtBin Store-in-Drawer Cabinet with 30 drawers.

So I thought to myself, I need to make some labels; labels would be perfect.  But as I was taking a photo to show a friend I held an eraser outside the drawer and it just looked too adorable to cover it up with an eraser.  So I hot glued one eraser to the outside of the drawer.

TIP: When hot gluing the erasers to the container, make sure every part of the eraser has glue on it.  If there is a space that is not secured, it can easily be picked off.  However, if the whole eraser is glued down, they are very sturdy.

The drawers slide completely out so you can either have the whole display out for the kids to pick and choose what erasers they use or you can just take one drawer out and only let the kids use those.

It is just the perfect container for Mini Eraser Storage.  Click here to check it out on Amazon.

Where do we get our mini erasers & how many fit?

We get most of our mini erasers the Target Dollar Spot which you can now shop online. They are seasonal so they do change often, but you can check out the Halloween ones here.  We also get some of our minis at Party City and Oriental Trading.  Each drawer holds about 60-100 mini erasers depending on the size.

Mini Eraser Activities Endless Bundle

With that, we are very excited to share with our Endless Mini Eraser Bundle.  There are so many fun activities you can do with these mini erasers and we want to make it easier for you by having one place to get all of your printables to use for them.  It’s an Endless Bundle and so as we make new mini eraser resources, we will be adding them to the files.  As we pick up new themes of erasers, we will be creating printable packs to be included in this bundle.  So exciting.  Click here to grab it at the introductory price!

Here is what we have already included for your Mini Eraser Activities:
