The week before the kids had off from school Christopher had come home with his first official ‘project.’ In order to celebrate the 100th day of school the kids needed to make something using 100 of an item. So as this is my first kid in school, I had no idea that the 100th day was just a historic landmark…lol. Apparently many schools celebrate this and the kids do activities throughout the beginning of school that lead up to the event.
We brainstormed what we were going to do. My first idea was to take a sheet of poster board and draw the number 100 really big and have Christopher glue 100 of something (i.e. – Cheerios, cotton balls, etc.) in the number. But, then I thought that that was probably a very common theme and most of the kids would do something similar.
After talking with my sister, we came up with a really cute idea. Since this was a ‘celebration’ for the 100th day of school, why not make a cake?? I went and bought 3 different sized styrofoam disks. Christopher painted them all different colors and then I hot glued them together. Finally, we placed 100 candles in the cake.
It was perfect….he was so excited to big it to school.
Okay, he might not look so excited in this picture, but he really was…..lol!
The best part was the next day after the celebration had taken place…..he thought that was it, school was over and that he was finished and off to 1st grade…..lol! Silly kid.
Have a great day….
