  • If she does a beach theme she could do 10ppl on the beach with 10 chairs and 10 umbrellas. Then she could put 10 seagulls flying, 10 dolphins swimming, 10 seashells by the water and 10 cotton ball clouds in the sky. She can have 10 surfers surfing with 10 surfboards. And 10 starfish on the rocks by the water. Is that kinda of what you need to do? Ive never done this before! lol

  • Animals, foods, trees, flowers. A beach theme can be trees, umbrella chairs, people on the beach, beach animals, towels, sand castles.  Well I'm sure you get the idea.

  • When my daughter had to do this, their 100th day fell around valentines day so she used those little candy hearts for her poster.

  • beads, candy hearts do sound like a good idea anon, animals. If it doesn't have to be 3-D then cut out pictures in magazines instead of drawing.

  • You can get themed fun foam stickers in the craft department at walmart, and I think they have beachy ones. She could also get a few cheap bag of sea shells and sort those into the groups she needed and for the background of her poster, you could use sand paper so they could look like shells on the beach.

  • We didn't have to do a poster--just bring in 100 of something.
