100 Days of School Shirt
This is my littlest (tooth ready to fall out and all) who was so proud of the shirt she made with a little bit of puffy paint. So simple but you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make them feel special on this day and celebrate the school year dwindling.
So print out this printable monthly calendar at the beginning of the year and have them count down the day to this fun one and have a party on that day. This top picture is the shirt we created, which was cheap……but here are a few others we thought were great too from our friends. 😉
The top image is made with a tank top and puffy paint dots (yes, 100 of them). You can also use tally marks or check marks on the shirt (100 of them) to make it creative and fun for that day. It was something we just threw together and was a great way to practice counting together too. I could have used googly eyes but didn’t have enough.
100 Things T Shirt
The second idea is to use something edible like Cheerios or fruit loops & string. This one can get the child more involved as they can string them themselves, and yes eat it later on. You could pair it with writing I survived 100 days on the front too which would be cute.
- If you don’t have either of those cereals at home but a necklace seems like an easy idea, use buttons instead.
This is also an easy craft that the child can create themselves. If you sew you may have a container of spare buttons ( I love using what you already have at home ), this is a cute idea.
100 Day T Shirt Ideas
Here is a really cute idea using felt and stickers! Find a plain t shirt and a piece of felt. Your child can count as he/she places 100 stickers (stars or otherwise) on.
Numbers such as these are iron on patches come with an adhesive back so ironing isn’t really necessary. You could use a Sharpie for the #100 as well.
I mean if you are coming down to the wire you could even use band aids all over the front and the back i you had enough. Pom poms are another option, you usually get a ton of those if you choose the smallest variety at the store, and they are cheap.
100 Days Shirts
A free easy 100 days of school activity for a shirt could be to write 100 words all over a white one. Use a sharpie and write small. They could be all of the spelling words tested on thus far.
- Use googlie eyes for a fun 100 day shirt! Draw a funny monster on a shirt with a sharpie. Then just glue those funny eyes right on. This one will be a hit!
100 days of school shirt ideas for Kindergarten
- Foam stickers on a shirt can be fun. Keep your eyes out after each holiday at craft stores. You are sure to find container after container of these foam cut outs.
- They come with adhesive on the back for next to nothing. Grab a batch and keep them for this occasion. Then let your child stick away 100 on a plain t shirt.
I am sure 100 days flew by for them and if you asked them for what they would do they would have a number of ideas. Mine first said to fill a gumball machine full of treats so she could share them with her class. If I was so inclined to go to the store and search for one that would have been creative, and surely a hit but I wanted what was already at home.
100th Day of School Celebration
- A simple yet cute one here uses beads and safety pins. If you have some beads and safety pins your child can do this creative activity.
- Place 100 total beads on and string the safety pins into a necklace or a shirt decoration.
My suggestion; look at home first. Find a shirt that is plain and you don’t care about ruining. Then search the house for something you just might have this many of. It could be themed so not everything is exactly the same like beads or bandaids. Different cereals that have a hole in the center to thread thru. The options are endless!
