100 Days of School

Today is the kids’ hundreth day of school.  Fortunately only K-1 kids are subjected to it. 

For his homework, he had to wear 100 items of something on his clothing. No one sent me the memo that the clothing is supposed to be a shirt. One neighbor hot-glued 100 buttons on her son’s shirt. Another friend covered a t-shirt with dinosaur stamps. Do you notice a theme? The parents are doing the work. Plus they’re then stuck with ugly shirts.

Zachary made a necklace with 100 Cheerios on it, for fun. I told him to wear that for his 100-item clothing. His lazy mom convinced him that he’d be the only kid who could then EAT his project. Plus I didn’t have to send snack to school.

He also had to create a project with 100 of the same items. We found another use for the spikey balls. Zack counted out 100 and glued them onto cardboard. As you can see from the photo, he clearly shaped it into two people and a dog. Unfortunately, my sister stepped on the project, dislodging several of them. It didn’t feel too good on her bare feet either.

For the party, each kid had to bring in 100 pieces of food. Zack though he could bring in unsweetened Shredded Wheat, since no one in our family likes them. But I wanted to make sure that my son still had friends after the class party. We sent candy.

What does your kid do for the 100th day of school?


  1. Would be less work in a Base 8 system

  2. Hilarious! I love the “student” projects that come down the pike… though this one’s one for the books!
