100th Day Of School

Hannah had her 100th day of school yesterday. (What!?)

She had to make a shirt with 100 of something on it.

Being the crazy Pinterest person that I am, we got online and started looking for ideas. We came across a gum ball machine with 100 gum balls--cute. We came across a hot air balloon with the balloon part made up of gems and jewels--right up Hannah's alley. But then I came across this image:
I loved it! Hannah liked it. She was pretty 'eh' about the whole thing. She didn't know what she wanted to do.

So, I told her we would go to the craft store and see what strikes her fancy.

We looked at gems and she wanted them all. 

We looked at pom poms and she was instantly drawn to the pink and purple ones with little sparkle pieces in them.

And then we got to the feathers. She initially grabbed the beautiful peacock feathers and got a big smile on her face. Yeah, those peacock feathers are crazy expensive and I needed 100 of them. I told her that we couldn't get those. <sad face> But I showed her some others and she loved them.

So if you didn't catch on...she liked all of the ideas. 

I asked her which one she wanted to do and she grabbed the feathers from my hand.

A little part of me squeeeeeeed. :oP 

Now, I might be lying if I said I didn't talk up the idea of the peacock a little bit more than the other ideas, but she ended up making the decision on the one she wanted to make.

Here is our end result.
She cut out the peacock body and glued on the eyes and the beak but when I came to glueing on the feathers she only lasted for about 10 and then asked if she could go play. :oP

If I had to do it over again I would have cut down the feather 'stems' a little bit. They made the shirt a bit stiff. But I was really pleased with how it turned out and Hannah was excited to wear it to school.

She was the only one who did a peacock! :o)
