- Cut 12″ x 18″ pieces of construction paper into 2-inch strips, lengthwise. Provide each of your students with a strip to use as the band of their hat. Using a marker, invite your students to decorate the band penning, “Happy 100th Day!”, “100 Days Smarter!”, “I survived 100 days!”, or another festive message.
- Cut 9″ x 12″ pieces of construction paper of assorted colors into 1-inch strips, widthwise. Provide each of your students with 10 colorful strips of paper and – using markers, stickers, paint daubers, or other craft tools – have them decorate each strip with 10 objects.
- Finally, size the bands to fit each of your students’ heads and have them glue the strips of paper to the inside of the band, creating a funky hat to wear! [NOTE: Encourage them to hold the strips in place for several seconds in order to make sure it will stick!
A variation could have 100 strips in 10 different colors.
Or five longer strips that arc up and over like a crown, each decorated with 20 items.
