Benefits of Using Crafts in Kindergarten

Crafts are such an important tool for learning in the kindergarten classroom. There are so many reasons why it’s helpful to add crafts to your lesson plans throughout the school year, but especially on the 100th day of school:

  • Strengthen Fine Motor Skills: Kindergarten students need as much fine motor practice during the school day as they can get! Crafts help students improve their hand strength and coordination in the fun way. They don’t even realize they’re hard at work!
  • Increase Engagement: Crafts can help you increase engagement in your classroom. Hands-on activities are a great way to keep students motivated and on track.
  • Practice Academic Skills: Crafts can help your students practice academic skills in a fun and engaging way! These 100th day of school crafts are a great example.

These crafts encourage students to apply what they’ve been learning during the year as they complete these crafts. They have learned how to use school supplies correctly. They have learned how to write their names. They can identify and write numbers. They can also count to 100. There are so many skills that students can use as they complete these crafts for the 100th day of school.

1. Candy Jar Craft

First, you can help your students celebrate the sweetness of being 100 days smarter with this candy jar craft. This project can be completed in three different ways, depending on the needs of your students and what you’d like them to practice.

First, students can have free rein of the candy jar and color in the candies using any combination of dot makers that they choose. Students could also use crayons or markers to color in each gumball, but the dot markers make it extra fun! You could also use the blank template to have students write the numbers to 100 before coloring.

The next option has the candies numbered to 100 in order from the bottom to the top. Students can then fill in the 100 numbered circles in order from 1 – 100, switching colors after every ten numbers to help them see the groups of ten.

The third option is a candy jar challenge. The numbers are mixed up on the paper and students are given a key for what color to use for each number. They will then search for the correct numbers and color them according to the code. This is great number identification practice!

2. 100th Day of School Glasses

Wearable crafts are also a huge hit on the 100th day of school!

3. 100th Day of School Hat

This 100th day hat craft doubles as number writing practice for your students. They will each receive ten different strips of paper containing the numbers 1 – 10 written ten times on each strip. This means that students will write 100 numbers as they create this hat!

Once students have completed the numbered strips, they can attach them to their decorated hat band.

The final step is to attach the strips together with a metal fastener to make the top of the hat.

4. Necktie Craft

Your students can complete their 100th day of school outfits with a fun necktie! Students can decorate their ties however they’d like using crayons, markers, or colored pencils. You could even have students use Q-tips and paint to add one hundred dots to the tie.

No matter how your students choose to decorate their ties, this craft will definitely be a conversation starter! It’s always fun for students to talk to other staff members, students, and family members about their celebration for the 100th day of school.

5. Cereal Necklace

For another neckwear option, your students can practice counting to 100 as they create a fruit loop cereal necklace! First, students can count out 100 pieces of cereal using a hundreds chart.
