Pi Day is on its way! Pi Day Activities!



Pi Day is such a fun holiday to celebrate with kids! Here are some of my favorite low prep Pi Day activities.

How will you be celebrating?

Pi Day circle art! This was a HUGE hit with my kids! Gather some lids, cups, circular containers and paint. Dip the circular objects in the paint and "stamp" on paper. This can double as a science lab about colors - try using red, yellow, and blue paint. Experiment with twisting the circles as you stamp or smearing them.

If you have circular hole punches, you can try this low mess activity if that is more your style:

Pi Day bracelet! You can do this two ways, either as shown below (number of beads equals digit value) or assign a different digit to each bead color you have. For example, you could assign 0 to the white beads, 1 to the red beads, etc. If you have more time on your hands, you can dye pasta and make a colorful Pi Day pasta necklace as shown in this other post.

Pi Day Skyline! This was such a fun project and an idea I found on Pinterest in a few locations, including this post at What Do We Do All Day. which has a lot of great pictures and ideas!

If you have young children this is a great way to introduce the idea of circumference, but it also works well for older children and is a lot of fun! Details can be found in a previous post I wrote.
