Understanding 100

Happy Monday y'all!  I am thrilled both children are at school today after almost a week off! 
Mommy time...whoo hoo!!!


 
Layla worked very hard on her 100th day of school project.
I think it turned so cute, so I decided to share it with y'all.
And...this IS our family scrapbook...so I like to put a little bit of everything here on this blog!



The goal of the project was to gain an understanding of the number 100. 
We were supposed to take 10 groups of 10 things to equal 100 things. 


We decided to do a pizza theme.  I stopped at the local pizza place and they donated a box...how nice was that?  And as you can see we raided the craft closet.  It was so fun to watch Layla glue, cut and create.  She did need our help though.



Some of the pieces wouldn't stick with regular glue, so we had to bust out the hot glue gun.  Everything is on there tight now.  Sadly due to the snow they weren't actually in school on the 100th day.  I'm sure they will have fun celebrating this week.  Layla looked so cute leaving this morning carrying her pizza!

Next project for school...a Valentine's day box!  Fun, fun...kindergarten is so fun! 

Have a great day :)

Such a cute idea! And so fun to get a real pizza box! ;-) Seems like the snow always keeps us from celebrating the 'real' 100th day! I miss kindergarten...it is fun! Now it's homework and really learning stuff I don't even understand already! ha! And they're only in 1st and 2nd grade!
