100 Day project

My First grader loves school, all things school. So when they were sent home two weeks ago with a project they had to do at home with the help of friends and family she was so excited.

The project was for 100 day at school. To mark the 100th day at school each child was asked to "collect" 100 of something and then turn it into an art project.

They were told they could not buy 100 of something they had to collect it from friends and family. So my daughter decided to do buttons. We called my mom, sister, friend, and my husband aunt to see if they could help her out. With the buttons I had and they all donated some to project we had successfully "collected" 100 buttons.

Now what to do with the buttons???? For my little girl who loves beads, and jewelry and all things girly. My daughter settled on a keepsake box. We went to Michaels Craft Mart and found a cute box for $1.99.

Here is the finished project.

I love that she was so proud of her project as well as the fact that it involved other family members to help create such a great memory for her and me as well.

100 Day Project!
