100th Day of School Project

 My daughters class is doing projects to celebrate the 100th day of school. They were each asked to get 100 pieces of an item and then come up with a way to display them. They were supposed to do the majority of the project by themselves.  So we got some buttons, a box and glue and she counted out 100 buttons and then glued them on her box. She was so proud and asked me to put her picture on my computer, so I did! 

Check back tomorrow for a fun Birthday video!!!

We celebrate the 100th day at our school too. Our principal has a giant "100" that the kids walk through in the morning on their way into school.

FANTASTIC! Your daughter did a REALLY great job covering the box up with buttons! The box looks great! =) I remembered when I was little, we had the 100th day of school, and we had to do that too. Good memories. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Birthday! The button box looks great. We've done things for my niece and nephew for their 100th days. Today was the 100th day at their schools. She looks very crafty, she may want to start her own blog! hahaha

Denise-Scrapmouse said...

Oh, this brings back memories. I remember when my kids had to do their 100 days projects when they were each in kindergarten. I think one used toothpicks and one used beans.

But your daughter's project is very cute! She did a great job. You should be very proud!

Treasure these moments because kids grow up so fast. Thanks for sharing.

Very cute! She's adorable. This weekend I will be working with my son on my 3rd and final 100 day project. He loves his bubble gum so we are going to cut out the bubble gum ball machine from the Sweathearts cartridge. He will then glue 100 "gumballs" to it. Once we are finished, I will post it to my blog for you to share with your daughter. Enjoy!

pj said...

She is darling and please tell her thank you for sharing. My son also did a project last year for 100th day and I was sick in bed, so he and his dad went to Walmart and bought suckers, an inexpensive shirt, and a sales person helped them find the right craft glue to glue them all to his shirt. They did such a wonderful job without me.

Super cute project!!! :) She did a great job!

My 6-year-old daughter & I punched 100 flowers out of cardstock and strung them on ribbon to make a lei for her 100th day! It's so much fun to craft with the kids!

Thanks for sharing,
