Many of the schools in our area make a big deal celebrating the 100th day of school. There are tons of creative ways to incorporate math and writing activities using the number 100. Ryan and Evan were excited to finally be celebrating the 100th day of school last Friday since it had been pushed back an entire week due to snow days!

1. His 100th day hat that he turned into glasses.
2. A self-portrait of what he'll look like when he's 100 years old. Not only did he remember the cane, but he also gave himself "rock-star hair."

Even on me....you'd think they'd have different sizes, or at least an adult size and a child size. Poor kids had a hard time keeping them on their little noses.
Anyway, I used a Martha Stewart edge punch that I got on clearance. I love the tiny holes it punches along the border.

I am first and foremost mom to three beautiful boys: Evan, 10, Ryan, 7, and Nathan, 6. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, Mark, who I have had the pleasure of growing up with over the last 23 years(!). I work as a 3rd & 4th grade literacy coach/reading specialist and in my spare time, try to capture time and get my creative fix through scrapbooking our family memories.
