100 Days

When I was in school, I don't remember ever making a big deal about the 100th day of school.  However,when my kids started school, all of the sudden it was the biggest thing since sliced bread.  Make a fancy project.  Be as creative as you want!  What the what?  What are you talking about?  I was never really super creative.  I am just not.  I need to be fed ideas.  Maybe it is lack of oxygen.  Maybe it is the blond.  Maybe it is something that happens after 35.  Whatever it is, I just never have come up with anything cool!  Even now.  But, my BFF Emmy did something totally cool, and as promised, I totally stole borrowed her idea.

Everybody's hands on the front= 50 fingers
And again on the back  for 50 more=100!  

I can't even take credit for the cool design on the back!  Nope.  That was Rich's idea.  My idea was the sleeves.  We have big handed people.  I just knew to buy an oversized shirt for the boy!  

What clever things have you come up with?  Are you crafty?  Or do you ride on the coattails of others like me?

Hey, I figure if I am riding on coattails- which often I do, as long as I give credit where it is due, life is good :)

Love how it turned out. So cute!

That turned out great!

I never celebrated the 100th day of school either. But, I think it sounds like a great idea. Anything that can be a little different and fun and exciting for the kids to help them continue to enjoy school is a good idea to me!

It was a semi big deal when I was in school.

Lourie I LOVE this idea! When I taught 3rd grade, we did this too and some parents would get all kinds of crafty with their ideas!
