100 Days Of School! (Actually more now)

100 days of school have come and gone. I cannot believe there are only 52 days left of this school year! For Kindergarten, celebrating 100 days of school is a big deal. Each year there is a family project that is required. This year we were suppose to make a poster celebrating 100, and are required to have 100 items on our poster. I remember doing Cameron's K poster. We glued 100 school related objects on a foam board. It was cute! This year for Caden we decided to use a picture.

First, I took Caden out in the snow for a little photo shoot.

Next, we gathered all the supplies: lined poster board, paper cutter, glue, brush, foam board, and an 8 X 10 picture.

Then, Michael and I cut the picture into 1 x 1 inch squares. After all, it is suppose to be a family project. If you do the math then you will know it does not come out to 100. So, we added square stickers to the poster that said Caden's name and "Winter 2010" to make it 100.

While we were cutting the picture, Caden was cutting some foam board into squares to help give some of the pictures a 3-D effect.

After that, Caden started gluing down the squares, as I made sure he had it in order. The grids on the poster board were a huge help to make sure the pictures were spaced correctly.

Finally, the finished project. It was a hit with all the teachers!
