Did you know that between Memorial Day and Labor Day there are roughly 100 days each year? (This year it is 105… but close enough!) Those are the 100 days of summer! The 100 days of summer 2020 needs to be epic!
Let’s be honest spring 2020 has been a bit of a letdown. The world has been in turmoil and our lives have been turned upside down. So with all of the distress in the world, I am issuing a challenge to make the 100 days of summer 2020 count!
That’s right! This summer is going to be amazing. To make it truly epic I challenge each of you to do some really amazing things. Let’s grow; let’s make a difference! Make ourselves a little better, our family a little better, and our world a little better.
These challenges are meant to be hard. Going screen-free until 5 pm is hard! For my little kindergarten son, reading 100 books is going to be a stretch. Playing 100 games is going to take some prioritizing. But, you can do it!
Here is my list of “100” challenges:
- Read 100 books/chapters
- Read aloud 100 picture books
- Walk/hike/run/bike 100 miles
- Try 100 new foods
- Spend 100 hours outside

- Travel over 100 miles from home
- Write 100 pages/words/letters

- Build 100 Lego structures
- Go 100 days screen-free until 5 p.m.
- Roast 100 marshmallows
- See 100 friends
- Learn to spell 100 new words
- Pick up 100 pieces of garbage
- Do 100 hours of home improvement
- Get rid of 100 things you don’t need
- Swim 100 yards without stopping

Can you add any to this list?
I would love to hear from you if you have a “100” challenge to add to the list. On the printable, at the bottom, you can add your own “100” goal. You can choose an item, ten items, or all the items on the list.
At the end of this post, you will find a cute printable with the whole list. Print out the list and circle the ones you like!
Go over the list as a family and select the items that you want to do. We will be doing this challenge as a family at my house and I will be blogging about it here!
I will post our challenge updates here every Thursday starting May 28th! I will also post on social media pictures, updates, and inspiration all summer long using the hashtag #100daysofsummer2020. Make sure you are following us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date and inspired.
Track your progress
After you have selected your items for your challenge, print out a “100” tracking sheet. Write in your challenge at the top and start tracking. Color in a block for every book you read, every workout you do, and every song you sing.
Show off your progress through the summer by taking pictures of your chart and your adventures. Post them to social media and use our hashtag #100daysofsummer2020. Of course, I will follow the hashtag (as should you to grow our community) but also tag @aoneroomschoolhouse and I will be sure to share as many as I can in my stories!
