The 100th day of school can be such a fun celebration! I love explaining to students that they are 100 days smarter and it’s only going to get better. While I keep things educational, I love to incorporate a fun and memorable 100th-day project for the kids to remember as they get older. From crafts to decorations, we like to keep things light and fun.
Read A Book Celebrating the 100th Day of School
One of the best ways to start your 100th day of school celebration is to read a fun story that all the kids will love. The 100th Day of School by Angela Shelf Medearis gets students excited to start a 100th-day project and be proud that they are 100 days smarter.

Do a Fun 100th Day Celebration Craft
If you know me, you know I love doing crafts with my students. These 100th Day projects are awesome to put together, but they are also really funny to read for the younger students.
Students color and decorate their craft templates and then piece them together with their chosen writing prompt. The prompts range from pre-k dotted lines to blank templates. Students can fill in statements about themselves when they are 100 years old, write Happy 100th day or 100 days smarter. Decorate the craft with cotton balls or other materials to make white or grey hair and display on your bulletin boards. You can find the 100th Day of School Crafts here.
Here Are Some Other Project Ideas You Can Use:
I found a large list of ideas on scholastic.com and here are some of my favorites!
1. Look at a map to find what is 100 miles north, south, east, and west of your school.
2. What was happening 100 years ago: Who was President? What were some new inventions?
3. String necklaces with 100 beads or Cheerios.
4. Calculate what year it will be when you turn 100 years old.
5. Find the names of two cities in every state, to add up to 100 cities.
6. Sing “100 Bottles of Pop on the Wall” all the way through!
7. Do 100 hops or 100 jumping jacks.
8. Measure a stack of 100 pennies.
9. What would you do with $100?
10. Close your eyes and open them when you think 100 seconds have passed. How close were you?
