Pi...aka the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter... aka 3.14159265359 and so on... Celebrating Pi Day (March 14th) is a beloved tradition for math enthusiasts and pie enthusiasts alike. We have enjoyed celebrating this "holiday" for several years (not that we need an excuse to eat pie, but can you think of a better reason to do so?!)
|A few years ago we enjoyed this apple pie on Pi Day.|
This year Pi Day is kind of a big deal, because March 14, 2015 is 3.1415. Some people are even taking it to the next level, marking 9:26 on the clock. We decided that we for sure needed to celebrate this once-in-a-century event, so we planned a Pi Day brunch celebration with a few friends. On the menu: Quiche, Pineapple, and of course assorted pies.
I had fun designing an invitation (I used Inkscape and Silhouette Studio) with a math pun or two in it.
We'll be keeping the kiddos happy doing Pi art and activities, like this Pi in the skyline by What Do We Do All Day?, this Easy as Pi artwork by Pink Stripey Socks, this Circle Art by Momgineer, or this Pi bracelet.
My husband wants me to make Pi Day Tshirts; we'll see how it goes and I'll post pictures if I get that far.
Here are pictures of some of the things I made:
|I used my silhouette machine to cut this design out of heat transfer material, then just ironed it on the shirts.|
|I did this onesie the same way as the shirts above.|
|Our welcome sign, right next to the Pi wreath on the front door. :)|
