Last week, my youngest brought home a note informing us that 100 Days of Kindergarten was coming up later this month. Wow! It feels like just yesterday that I did this with his big brother.
Because to celebrate, he needs to bring in a posterboard with 100 of “something” on it. With my oldest, I thought we were soooo clever. We cut a posterboard to look like a cookie (we even cut out a bite) and then glued 100 chocolate chips on it. In theory, it was a cute idea. Only half the chips had fallen off on the bus by the time he got to school. So my biggest piece of advice – use super glue or some awesome glue product that will ensure your 100 of something stays on the board!
We’re still deciding what to do but I crowd-sourced on Facebook and Pinterest for a few ideas and here are a bunch if you are still looking for your own child:
100 Legos in the shape of either 100 or the letters L-E-G-O (MamaLisa has a picture of one here)
100 Skittles shaped into a rainbow. (See below)
100 Pom-Poms or circle stickers for “Gumballs.” Draw a Gumball machine on the posterboard and put the gumballs inside of the glass top of the gumball machine.
100-Eyed Monster. Draw a creative monster on the posterboard and use 100 googly sticky eyes on his forehead!
100 Swedish Fish or Goldfish in an ocean. Draw an ocean and glue the fish under the water!
100 Pieces of Pepperoni on a Pizza. (Draw a pizza and then get clever drawing or using red construction paper for the pepperoni or any topping of choice!)
A centipede with 100 legs or 100 of those circle pods to his body.
A tree with lots of branches and 100 finger prints from family members coming off the trees in various leaf colors. 100 leaves! “Can you be-LEAF it’s been 100 days?”
100 Pennies in the shape of 1-0-0
Pieces of Bubble Gum. And saw a cute note on a message board – someone titled it, “Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum, in a dish. How many pieces do you wish?” And they had the gum in a dish shaped in the number 100!
100 Sprinkles on a Cupcake. Draw a cupcake and use different mini colored pom-poms for the sprinkles.
100 Fruit Loops or other favorite kind of cereal.
100 Balloons. Stickers or drawn. I saw one clever kid used actual balloons that weren’t inflated with strings attached… the strings came out of the chimney of a house a la the Disney movie UP!
100 Stars in a night sky. (Black posterboard, gold stars – easy!)
100 Smarties with the tagline, “Learning is for Smarties.”
