100 Second Race

100 seconds you have to race
Run and use a very fast pace.
When the whistle blows stop
We'll see who wins 100 gumdrops.

We are collecting 100 postcards. We have them displayed around a large world map right inside the front door of the school. The children collecs, cans, etc. for recycling to raise money for the postage.
We also have a 100 chart counting down the days.
On the 100th day we set up centers around the classroom with various 100 activities. For instance we may compare the lengths of 100 paper clips fastened together and 100 link and learn chains. We see what 100 pennies look like. One group will build a construction with 100 wooden blocks. Another group will build a construction with 100 pieces of Lego. Quite often the children have ideas of their own that they would like to do on our 100th day.
Some of the keen children bring 100 collections from home to share with classmates.

We have 100 snacks. I have available ten different foods (for example, m&m's, skittles, fruit loops, etc.) and the children have to take ten of each food to make 100 snacks. We also make a crown with 100 jewels on it (I got this idea from a book but cannot remember the name of it now).

100th Day balloons!
We get parents to help us blow up 100 balloons. We go to the gym or playground and let our kindergartners play with 100 balloons. We tell them when we are finished we will pop them all, but we must clean up afterwards. The children love this activity! We also blow up one helium balloon per child. We tie a note to the balloon stating that we are celebrating our 100th day of school. We write down our school address and tell the person who finds our balloon to write us back. We have received letters from other states where our balloons have landed.
