14+ Pi Day Activities and Ideas

We've done so many Pi-Day activities and Pi related crafts over the years that I thought it would be a good idea to put all the links in one place.  If you click the links or the pictures, there are directions and/or a pattern to recreate each activity.

Last year, I developed several fun Kindergarten Pi-Day Activities to do with Firecracker's kindergarten class.  The activities included tracing paper plate "pie" fractions, making circle pictures, reading some books about circles, and a printable patterns worksheet featuring pie pictures.

Oh, yes...and of course the snacks.  We served Mini-Pudding Pi Pies for the kindergarten snack for the day.

I would have liked to volunteer to celebrate Pi-Day with Firecracker's 1st grade class this year...but since Pi-Day is likely the day we'll be bringing our sweet baby home from the hospital...we'll just have to miss a year.  This is the Fresh Baked Pi outfit I'm hoping to bring him home in...

...but if he spits up he may end up wearing this Little Pi Guy Outfit to come home.

And baby will not be the only one wearing a Pi outfit.
When I decorated shirts last year, I made sure they were a little big, so they still fit the kids this year.

Firecracker is our Cutie Pi.

Little Brother is our Mud Pi.

Sweet Pea is our Sweetie Pi.

I really should make Hubby a new Pi shirt since he only has his apple pi shirt I made as a Halloween costume years ago.  ( pattern for this was way before I started blogging.)

He does have a Digits of Pi Belt that I made him for Christmas that he can wear to celebrate Pi Day hwen he needs to wear something more professional than a T-shirt.

I most likely will be wearing my Pi in the Oven maternity shirt...even though #4 will be out of the oven by then.   Hopefully my tummy won't fill it out quite this much by then.

Of course there is a high likelihood that there will be some delicious tasting pie in the real oven in the kitchen.  Hopefully we can convince my mother-in-law who will be helping out to bake us some.  I imagine she'll be willing since I got my favorite Best-Ever Coconut Cream Pie recipe from her.  (She's also the person who gave us our awesome Pi-Plate.)

If you want a Pi-Day shirt that will also work for a nerdy Halloween or Thanksgiving statement, you might think about this Pumpkin Pi Onesie, with free included Freezer Paper Stencil...easily adaptable for larger sizes too.

Or how about a Pumpkin Pi Tie?
Oh, and I will also be wearing my Digits of Pi Necklace from Boutique Academia.

And if you love math enough to consider celebrating Pi Day, you'll definitely want to enter my current giveaway for a Pi Necklace from Boutique Academia.  The giveaway is open until March 18th at 12:00am.

How are you planning to celebrate Pi-Day?

  5. What a cute, cute idea! I made sure to mention your post in my Handmade Tuesday post for this week so feel free to go grab a button from my button page :)

  6. Love the belt and the necklace! My dd wanted to know if you made the pi plate. She is obsessed with making a "real" pie plate. She's a bit sad we are only making paper ones today.

  7. How fun! I love the t-shirts!! I would love to invite you to link up at our Share It Saturday linky party. We have lots of creative ideas submitted each week and you would fit right in!

    Hope to see you there!
