Hey, 100 Days. I see you! This year I don’t have a kindergartener, so I’m missing out on the whole 100th day of school festivities. I’m sure they will still celebrate a little bit in the other grades, but not like in that first year of elementary school. It’s a big deal in the K grade. The first time ever to accomplish 100 days of school. It’s a milestone that will never happen again and also a way to get kids excited about attending school for the next 12+ years. Last year my girl and I created this 100th day of school rainbow shirt. Super easy to make and I think turned out super cute. At least Ivy loved it and that the most important thing!
Celebrate 100 days over the rainbow!
100th Day of School
In preparation for the 100th day of school 2018, I asked our daughter what theme she wanted for her shirt. She instantly requested a rainbow shirt. Of course I could have done the typical gluing on of Skittles candies or buttons, but then I started to get nervous about drawing a freehanded rainbow. I’m not that artsy and my drawing is atrocious. So I decided that I’d put my vinyl cutter to work for me. Exact rainbow made really fast and then ironed right onto the shirt. While I was working on the outlines of the rainbow, I had the idea of dots in colors of the rainbow… So the idea of 100 fingerprints was born! This worked out perfectly for our daughter to create her very own colorful shirt.
DIY 100th Day of School Rainbow Shirt
What you’ll need:
- new or used shirt that you don’t mind having a permanent 100th day design on it
- heat transfer vinyl (or a fabric marker if you want to freehand the rainbow drawing)
- fabric paint in 4-6 different colors
What you’ll do:
- cut out rainbow design on a vinyl cutter or freehand
- iron on the vinyl rainbow
- use fabric paint to put 100 fingerprints all over the rainbow
*Optional: You can put the “100 days over the rainbow” phrase on the shirt or leave it blank.
