Tips on Celebrating with Kids
A new school celebration gaining popularity in elementary schools across the country is dubbed, “The 100th Day of School.” This celebration literally occurs on the 100th day of the school year. The calendar date varies, due to differences of start dates and inclement weather, but it typically falls in the January-February time frame.
This day provides the opportunity to plan fun activities for young minds. They can learn new math skills, create a new art project, or stretch their creativity. Here are some 100 days of school ideas to do with your little ones either at school or at home:
- Practice Counting- Think about it. There are lots of ways to count to 100! You can count by 1s, 5s, 10s, 20s, etc. 100 is an easy, round number for young minds to practice with. Here’s some neat ideas to practice counting!
- Exercise- Explore ways to get to 100 with your body! Do 10 reps of 10 different exercises, like jumping jacks, sit-ups, or push-ups. Or walk 100 steps and measure the distance of your steps compared to someone else’s. Check out some other fun kid-friendly exercise ideas!
- Design a necklace- Build fine motor skills by having your children or students string 100 items onto a piece of yarn that they can wear as a necklace. Use cereal such as fruit loops to combine craft time with snack time!
- Make a t-shirt- Here at WorkPlacePro®, we are all about t-shirts! We love the idea of kids creating their own. Start this project plenty of time in advance, so the child can begin collecting items that they will later glue onto a t-shirt. Fun ideas might include stickers, pennies, Legos, or sequins. Let them use fabric paint to decorate and make it their own! We love these creative examples shown here.
The 100th day of school is not only a great way to have fun, but it’s also a time to reflect on what has been learned so far and what is yet to come. We wanted to create a t-shirt design that celebrated a memorable school year for this purpose! Check out our “Best School Year Ever” design here, available until November 14, 2019!
