Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3.14). Fortunately this comes at the time of year when most of us are ready for a break. It's been almost 3 months since Christmas and cabin fever has set in. Try some of these Pi Day activities for a fun and educational change of pace.
- Bake a pie (and measure the circumference using pi) - put the pi symbol on top of the pie with an extra bit of crust dough. You can also just buy a favorite kind of pie if baking them is not in your skill set.
- Make some pi shaped cookies. Using roll-out sugar cookie dough, cut pi shapes with a knife or decorate round cookies with the pi symbol written with frosting.
- Eat some pi-neapple or make a pi-neapple upside-down cake.
- Have a pizza pie for lunch or dinner. If homemade, you could put the pi symbol on top with pepperoni, onions - any topping that lends itself well to the task.
- Research how pi got its name.
- Watch online videos about The Story of Pi.
- Look at the Greek alphabet.
- Translate your name into Greek here. Does your name use the symbol for pi?
- Convert your age into pi by dividing your age by pi to see how many 'pi years' old you are. Moms will love this! :-)
- March in a circle.
- Watch reruns of "Magnum P.I."
- Send friends a Pi Day e-card.
- Play 'Pi Spy' - Like Eye Spy, but you must use only round objects. Stage the playing area with assorted round items before beginning. Alternately, you can hide a card with the pi symbol on it and play the 'Hot/Cold' game.
