Tomorrow is the 100th day of school for Molly. It is such a milestone for these kids because even though school seems to drag on at this time of year because it's a reminder that summer is just around the corner. They really don't celebrate it much as the kids get older but I've heard some fun things that some of the teachers are doing. My friend told me that her daughter's kindergarten class is dressing up like they are 100 years old. I begged for pictures. Molly had to bring in 100 of something when she was in Kindergarten. She chose fun little glow in the dark beads because she was very into making bracelets with them at that point in time.
Happy 100th Day of School, Everyone!
Our main entree is a pita pocket sandwich. We used a new whole wheat half pita and stuffed it with salami and provolone. We then used one of our food safe markers and wrote a little message for Molly on it.
Our vegetable side is green pepper. We cut out several 100's with a small cookie cutter. Molly just loves peppers and we thought it would be a nice compliment to her sandwich.
Our fruit side is natural (no sugar added) applesauce. Molly has a loose tooth so she asked to have things that wouldn't hurt her tooth. We added a 100 that we cut out of a whole fruit leather. We're not sure if this will be swimming in the applesauce by the time Molly gets to lunch, but that might be fun to find too.
Our dairy side is a cheese stick. Just in case Molly is still hungry after eating the rest of her lunch.
Finally, our Fun Friday treat and 100th day of School treat is strawberry Jell-O Jigglers cut into a 100 with our trusty cookie cutters. ☺
