100th day of the year...

How do you celebrate the 100th day of the year?
First you do a lot of counting and re-counting. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6, 7, 8, 9,...
Everyone brought 100 of their favorite things to the party.
I put 100 safety pins on a shirt to wear and share.
At the party, we started by reading “Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten”.
Then everyone shared the 100 items they brought to the party.
100...baseball trading cards, Pokemon Cards, beanie babies, hair ties, beads, stickers, Lego's, marbles, colorings pens & pencils, monkeys on an outfit.... Help me out mom's, what did I miss...
Hundreds of fingers counted and strung 100 Fruit Loops on a string and made necklaces. I would say it is safe to assume that 100's of Fruit Loops got eaten also while we were stringing!
There were three jars of jelly beans and we guessed which one had 100 jelly beans in it. Only one person got it correct. Go Laurie and Jake!
We listed 100 Things that we are thankful for on a poster board.
Then we ate! There was 100 pretzels, 100 pieces of cheese, 100 cucumber slices, 100 grapes, 100 chicken nuggets...
We shared 100 skittles and 100 jelly beans for dessert. Yum! Believe it or not 100 of these items was just the perfect amount.
We had at least 100 minutes of playing and fun.
Everyone got a fake Monopoly $100 bill, and we all shared what we would do with $100.
Then we learned how 100 friends, who stick together can not be broken apart.
There were way more than 100 laughs!
What a fun, fun day! Old friends, new friends. We may have to do it again next year and maybe you could join us. Someone even wanted to have a 200th day of the year party. I think he had fun.
So everyone start counting....
1, 2, 3, 4, 5....
