100th Day of School

Heidi asked me for some 100th Day of School project ideas. This is such a fun topic! So here goes...

This year my son and I made 100 eye balls. I found this plaque at Hobby Lobby for $2, painted it black, backed it with some funky paper, and pushed on the sticky backed eye balls.

My son was excited about it until his class mate trumped him with 100 pieces of dog food. So FYI mom's, dog food is better than eye balls. Who knew?

Here are a couple other fun ideas that were at my son's school. I love this idea of having your child draw a picture and then framing it with something.

Isn't this beautiful!! Making a picture out of colored beads, buttons, candy, etc is a fabulous idea.

Look at Marna's cute skittle apple!

Stella and her son made 100 Sums of 100. Very clever.

Smlwoman got seriously creative and made a volcano with licorice ropes for the lava and sticky dinosaurs at the bottom. My boys would go crazy for this one. I'll have to keep it in mind for next year.

Leppard showcased several fun 100 day of School activities. This was my favorite, the blissful candy tray.

Erin wanted to showcase 100 pennies - here's her project.

Now let's feature "what to wear" there are so many fun ideas. Steph made a 100 days T-shirt with numbers.

Rose made a bunch of hearts out of felt.

Mellykat has seriously impressed me with her son's shirt. She put two-sided-sticky-pop-dots on the backs of the pictures and stuck them on the shirt. It looks like armor, too cool.

Allison made her kiddos these applique T-shirts.

Cynthia glued skittles to a hat for her son to celebrate!
