100th Day of School Activity

Do you want to celebrate the 100th Day of School in a meaningful way?  Would you like to incorporate some math into the celebration? Then this post is for you!

100th Day of School Activity

My son’s teacher recently sent a notice home that his class would be celebrating the 100th Day of School. Being a Middle School teacher, I had completely forgotten this, but I was totally game to get back into my elementary school vibes!

So I got to thinking:  What can we make instead of buy?  I had two reasons for this.  First, I would like him to count to 100 as he decorated it and secondly, I'm not sure he will use it again so I don't want to spend money on it!

I decided after some discussion with my son to go with either a paper bag best or crown.  We could easily decorate either one of these with 100 stickers of his choice.

I searched around for how to make these two things and found a couple of cool DIY videos. The links for each of them are below.

We settled on making a crown. This seemed like the quickest solution for us because we don’t typically have brown paper bags big enough to cut a vest out of lying around the house.

To be honest, I’ve got a lot going on at my school right now so I went to my favorite place or finding educational resources. Of course I searched Teachers pay Teachers!  This is the crown I found that we like the most. Bonus points for it being cheap!

I had some bulletin board border that I used to attach the crown to.  It made the overall crown less flimsy and gave more area to attach the stickers.

After printing, cutting, and decorating it with stickers this was the end result.  Not my best picture, but I was under a time crunch to get it before my little guy could put it on his head.

Do you have any other fun and inexpensive ways to celebrate the one hundredth day of school? Comment with some ideas below!
