That first year of school is filled with new experiences -new lessons, new friends and new milestones. One of the things most schools celebrate is the first 100 days of prep (or kindy, reception, foundation or pre-primary, depending where in Australia you live).
So arm yourselves with scissors and glue, parents, because odds are you’re about to be hit with a homework project of mammoth proportions – creating a poster to mark 100 days of prep!
Here are our picks of the very best in 100 days of school projects for all of those extra crafty parents out there.
They’re 100 days smarter, right? So wise owls are our first choice in 100 days’ celebration crafts. This one was created by our own editor, Nikki, and her daughter, Isobel.
Or, how about collecting 100 different coins for your little preppy to glue? This is a great exercise in maths as well – what kid doesn’t love counting coins?
The road to education is all about opening doors to the different avenues of learning for kids and thus this creative 100 days of open doors is not only adorable, but also completely appropriate.
We love this little man’s innovative 100 days idea where he simply collected a bunch of random stuff (100 arbitrary things to be exact) to glue on a large poster board.
100 days of shapes is another great way to commemorate such an important day and easy enough for little hands to do (with the help of an adult).
This little dude certainly deserves a thumbs up for his clever 100 days of thumb prints idea!
For extra crafty children, why not create 100 days of memories? If you don’t mind cutting up photos, then this is a great collage idea.
Alternatively, for extra organised parents, why not take a photo a day for the first 100 days of your little one’s school journey to showcase the subtle changes in the past few months?
The first year of school may only be a small milestone in the ocean of learning but it is such a big step. And showcasing 100 fish swimming in a fish bowl is a great way to celebrate.
Or, chew on this clever gum ball machine poster.
These are only some of the countless ways to celebrate 100 days of school. Design a picture with 100 buttons, craft a bug with 100 legs, write your child’s name using 100 bricks of Lego, create a necklace using 100 beads or pieces of pasta or bake a cake with 100 sprinkles on top.
How will you celebrate your child’s 100th day of school?
