Creating Memories that Endure,



  1. Sharla

    Hi Laurie,
    I just made a lunchbox note for my son’s 100th day which is tomorrow.

    Thanks for the fun activities!!

  2. Melissa

    The 100th day of school is coming up this month for my triplets who are in Kindergarten.
    I love the ideas shared here. Thanks.
    Got my mind thinking about fun ways to celebrate.

  3. Raydene

    My son made a poster with 100 things that begin with S for Steven. 100 days of school is so much fun.
    Thanks for all the ideas.

  4. jennifer rakowski

    Oh my goodness the 100 year old boys is sooooo cute! I teach Kindergarten and I will definitely be making the gumball machine and the pizza…love those!

  5. Darienne

    These are very clever ideas. My kids just had their 100th day. My first grader’s teacher wanted each student to bring in a baggie filled with 100 items such as beans, pennies, etc. He brought in 100 marbles.

  6. shelley

    will share some of these great ideas with my teacher friends. Thanks

  7. Shannon

    My son strung 100 pieces of cereal to a string to wear as a necklace. We also filled a container with 100 smarties for his teacher with a tag that read “Thank you for helping me be 100 day’s smarter!!” 🙂
    These idea’s above are great! I love the dress as an elderly person! How fun!

  8. Becky

    A second grade tradition at our children’s school is the 100th Day Hat Parade. Kids glue 100 items to a hat (legos, candy, flowers, googlie eyes etc…) and parade thru the school. The creativity is amazing…the kids really get in to it. They will each bring 100 pieces of their favorite cereal that will be mixed together for 100th day breakfast – also served with 100 donut holes, 100 berries, juice and milk. It is such a FUN day!

  9. Rachel

    It’s my fourth (and last – boo hoo!) kindergarten 100th day of school. This year we found a website with free software and made our own “100” photo collage! Check it out here!


  10. Cassie

    Yes! I made a banner for the teacher. Here it is:

    My son has to bring 100 of something and these give me some great ideas! Thanks!

  16. Jamila Tillman

    I love the idea as kids dressing up like they are 100. My daughter’s 100th day is coming up next week and we may indeed let her use her imagination to dress up like she is 100.

  17. Karen

    Great ideas for the 100th day! I love the Smarties idea and also the photo collage! Our 100th day will be Feb 5th.
