100 Days of School ~ Awesome Activities & Books!

A 100 Days of School celebration is fun for ALL ages--from preschool through college! These 100th Day activities, though, are best for preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school.  :)

We usually celebrate 100 days of school in January or February, so I've been looking at activities for us this week and thought I'd share my favorites! Because I found so many awesome ideas, I'm sorting them into these categories:

100 Days of School Outfit Ideas

100 Days of School Counting Ideas

100 Days of School Activities for Kids Ideas

100 Days of School Book Ideas

These activites are perfect for classrooms, homeschool, co-ops, or just after-school fun! I hope you love them!
