I saw on Pinterest the idea to crochet a paper chain. So I decided to make one for 100s day for my son's kindergarten teacher. There are 10 each of black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. That makes 80, so the remaining 20 are the multi colored ones. Like a  paper chain, they vary in width and length a bit.  For sturdiness, I mostly used Red Heart yarn, and a little bit of cotton yarn.  They connect with sticky back Velcro.  Some of the Velcro I had a bit of trouble with sticking to the yarn when it was opening and closing, so I sent in some extra Velcro she can use to repair chains as needed.  I thought she could use this for math (counting/10 frames, etc) and colors, and all sorts of fun things!  It measures to about 21 feet long, I believe!

Love that idea! May have to snitch it for some of the elementary teachers I know. I especially like the idea that it's velcroed together so it can be added to on a daily basis and can be segmented for use with math concepts.

Thank you everyone!  I chose velcro because with the time they have at school, buttons would take too long.  I will most likely be making some with buttons for OT for the special needs daughter if a friend. 100s day is Monday and I sent it to school Friday so the teacher could prepare, but she was absent. Sad I think she was flooded at her house.
