100 Day Activities For Preschool

This year my son and I glue’d 100 eye balls into the shape of a 100. I found this plaque at Hobby Lobby for $2, painted it black, backed it with some funky paper, and pushed on the sticky backed eye balls.

My son was excited about it until his class mate trumped him with 100 pieces of dog food. So FYI mom’s, dog food is better than eye balls. Who knew?

100 Days of School Shirt FAQ:

We’ve gotten lots of questions over the years about 100 days of school and thought I could hopefully answer some questions that you have in case you were wondering!

  1. Do I need a template? Nope.  Pick a theme and don’t over think it.  If you want a template then you could create an iron on or print out a design and trace it onto the shirt.
  2. How do I make an iron-on?  If you’re comfortable with basic graphic design then you can make any image and print it onto iron-on paper.  I like the dark shirt iron on paper.  {affiliate link}
  3. What type of glue should I use?  You can sew it on with thread, hot glue, or fabric glue.
  4. Can I wash it afterward?  It depends on what type of materials you use. {snicker}  If you use an iron-on then wash cold and hang dry.  If you use cereal or candy… that’s a no. {giggle}
  5. What should I do with the shirt later?  I have several fun shirts that I’ve made for my boys over the years.  You can add it to a tshirt quilt, make a Christmas ornament out of it,  or put it into their memorabilia box for them to reminisce about later.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Let your child pick the theme.
  • Use a shirt that’s a good quality and can hold whatever you put on it.  If it’s not thin then your design will work better.
  • Pick a shirt that’s not a dark color unless your design is light colored.
  • Be patient and let the perfectionism go and enjoy decorating the shirt together.
  • Be proud of however it turns out!
