Lorien's 100th Day of School Project

For the 100th day of school, Lorien had to make a project that had 100 of something in it. We talked all weekend about some of the different things she could make. She decided that it would be fun to make a 100 brick igloo out of sugar cubes & frosting. I thought that was a fun idea too. So first we counted out 100 sugar cubes. Then Lorien started assembling them into a little house with a doorway (I helped with the math part on how many should go in each row.)

She built it entirely by herself which made me proud. She spread the frosting around each brick so that it would stay well & then stacked the house 6 levels high without it falling over.

I helped her frost some graham crackers for the roof & together we iced the roof with icicles made of frosting. Then Lorien added her own self portrait on the top with red & pink icing.

It turned out WAY cute & she was SO proud to present it to her class for the 100th day of school.
