100th Day of School Preschool Activities
Preschoolers love celebrations, and celebrating 100 days of learning is a big deal! 100 Days of school is a long time, and preschoolers will definitely be proud to celebrate this big milestone. There are so many unique and hands-on activities to incorporate in your early education classrooms that preschoolers will love. The 100th day of school is a day students will look forward to and remember throughout their educational journey. We’ve included some of our favorites.
One of the most important things to remember when celebrating the 100th day of school is to keep things light, fun, and age-appropriate. Preschoolers are fascinated by the number 100 and are working to understand the concept of numerical value. Now is a great time to teach them a bit more about the number 100. Here is a list of some of our favorite recommendations.
100th Day Decorations
One of the best aspects of celebrating 100 days of school is watching preschooler's knowledge of the number 100 expand as they are immersed in learning all about 100. Watch your preschoolers excitement when you tell them they get to eat 100 snacks. You'll need ten different sets of snacks, we recommend pre-dividing them into paper cups. Pretzels, club crackers, mini marshmallows, popcorn and cereal all make great snacks!
Invite your preschoolers to make individual or group collages with 100 different items. Teachers, this is a great time to clean out some of those extra pieces of fabric and felt you've had stashed away! Create an invitation to create with various materials like buttons, gems, googly eyes, and some of your other favorite craft materials. Preschoolers will create a collage with 100 different items, a great way to encourage counting practice!

100 Things Scavenger Hunt
Set-up a scavenger hunt for your preschool students and encourage them to find 100 things. You can divide students up in teams or pairs that way not everyone is searching for 100 things. Scavenger hunts are great for our curious learners because they allow preschoolers to practice problem-solving in a tangible way.
100 Years Old Portrait
What will you look like at 100? A great question to ask preschoolers! What does a 100 year old wear? What do they do? This is such a fun way to get preschoolers thinking about different ages and then encourage them to draw a picture of themselves at 100. This will be a great keepsake for parents to hang onto.
Asking preschoolers life questions is always so much fun, their answers are always so creative and well-thought out. But, it's a great way for teachers to see the world through their students eyes. You can turn this into a dictation drawing activity by asking your preschoolers to tell you what they would buy with 100 dollars and they can draw their answers. The responses are always so fun to read!
100th Day Books
Books are one of the best ways to learn about holidays and celebrations. Read-alouds also teach preschoolers new words while improving their information-processing skills. And there are so many fun books that will not only entertain your preschoolers but teach them more about the number 100! Here is a list of some of our favorites:
