100th Day of School Shirt Ideas for Kindergarten
Are you looking for a list of 100th Day of School shirt ideas for kindergarten through second grade? I’ve got you, friend.
Most elementary schools do something special to celebrate the 100th day of kindergarten or 100 days of school.
During Fall and Christmas, there are many class parties. So, a little celebration in the early part of the new year is often highly welcomed and anticipated. For this special day, schools and teachers often put together class and school-wide activities. Some may be educational activities and group work in the classroom. Others may be just-for-fun activities planned in other parts of the building. Teachers and staff will usually put together some fun snacks that help the students fuel up for the rest of the activities.
There are so many list of ideas available. I looked for hours to find the original source of some of these shirt ideas. However, many were not able to be traced back to the original creator. I shared those who were, but feel free to contact me if you know the creator of the others. I’ve love to give them credit for their work. Enjoy the list full of creative 100 days of school shirt ideas for kindergarten, first, and second grade.

If you are a teacher and your class is making shirts together, you probably want a simple shirt design. If you are a busy parent and are helping your child make one, these ideas are perfect for limited time. They are simple, but your child will love making them and wearing them. Despite their simplicity, they are all incredibly cute and creative.

- 100 Days Brighter (Stars): Another t-shirt taking advantage of the phrase “100 Days Brighter” – this time with a space and stars theme.

One component of the day that students look forward to? Dressing up. School celebrations are a great way to take a break from the normal routine. Dress up days are a fun way for students to show a little extra personality — especially if your school has uniforms. Some classes may make hats or headbands together as an activity. 100 days of school t-shirts are a common tradition for many classrooms and schools. Some teachers may make t-shirts as a class so every student has a matching shirt. Some teachers and schools may ask students to make their t-shirt at home with their parents. Making t-shirts in class is a fun activity for any grade. Making them at home is a way for students to work on something outside of school that shows a little bit of their personality.
Whether you have a kindergarten student, a 1st grader, or slightly older students, a special t-shirt is a fun 100th day of school project.
Cheap Shirt Ideas to Celebrate 100 Days of School

- 100 Days and Counting (Piggy Bank): Toy money can be purchased at the dollar store in the kid’s section. The piggy bank on this one can be glued on using whatever materials you have available. Felt or scraps of fabric would work great, but you can also just draw the pig on in fabric marker or paint.

At the end of the day, your 100th day of school celebration will be so much fun.
