Should you be the mother whose child springs on you the new news that she has some sort of 100 Days of School Project due oh…13 hours from now, requiring 100 “creative” items counted and placed into a plastic bag, I am here to help. Well, after I determine how the heck I missed the notice home about the project in the first place.
Next, try one of these:
1. 100 pennies
2. 100 words cut from a magazine
3. 100 Cheerios
4. 100 Cheerios passed off as HFCS-free organic oat-O cereal
5. 100 peanut butter chips passed off as HFCS-free organic…eh. Whatever. They’re peanut butter chips, deal with it Brooklyn.
6. 100 cat hairs collected from the couch
7. 100 “folded pieces of paper” (Sage’s idea)
8. 100 mismatched game pieces you’ve been meaning to get rid of anyway.
9. 100 Q-tips
10. 100 used Q-tips (should you be really bad about taking out the bathroom garbage.)
11. 100 overpriced items from the American Girl Doll catalog.
(Is it cheating just to drop the entire catalog in there whole?)
12. 100 drops of contraband child’s multi-symptom cold syrup, now 4 years expired but still potentially useful.
13. 100 crayon stubs
14. 100 pencil shavings
15. 100 squares of toilet paper; 50 if it’s 2-ply
16. 100 carefully cut, beautifully crafted paper snowflakes. (Ha! Just kidding.)
17. 100 mother’s tears.
Glad to be of assistance. Good luck out there.
