Woohoo! Can you believe it, we have made it to 100 Days of School? For some of you, who have had lots and lots of snow, this celebration may be a few days ahead. All the more reason for you to read below and get some ideas on how to help your favorite kid celebrate their 100th day of school with our ideas for celebrating 100 days of school.


100 Days of School Celebration Ideas


I wrote this years back (2014) when my boys were celebrating their first 100 school days. They’d spend weeks in class learning to count to 100 in tens and we would bring in a few things to help with the 100 days of school parties. It’s a few years later and these traditions continue. Our ideas below have still been a big hit. Over the years, we’ve learned about new ways kids can celebrate the 100th day of school. We’ve added some new 100th day of school activities and created a 100th day of school printable for you. These ideas are a collection shared by his past teachers, what I’ve found on the web, and my own imagination. They are ideas that can be shared with classmates or done at home.

We combined Valentine’s Day with the 100th Day of School Celebration with these cookies.

100 Days of School Snacks

  • 100 Day Cookies
    • I created cookies to represent the number 100. Because in the past the 100th day of school fell on Valentine’s Day, I made the zeros with heart cookie cutters. (See the image above.)
  • 100 Day Soup
    • From his teacher, each student was asked to bring in 100 edible items like Cheerios, fruit loops, etc. The students would then create their own ‘soup’ by mixing the items together. (If done at home, scale it down, add 10 of 10 different items.)


  • Make rice krispie treats in the shape of the number 100.
