Pi Day Activities for Kids

Today is March 14th – Pi day! Or more accurately, 3/14 as in 3.14159265359…. To celebrate, we’ve compiled some of the best activities and projects for kids to help you celebrate this wonderful mathematical day! (Psst, it’s also Albert Einstein’s birthday too!)

Pi which in Greek is written with the symbol π, is the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of the circle. It doesn’t matter the circle’s size is, the ratio will always equal pi. Pi is an irrational number meaning that it never ends.

Mathematics is art so first enjoy the digits of Pi played in this beautiful melody on the piano by Audiodidakt314 on You Tube.


Here’s a round up of printables and activities for kids to help celebrate Pi Day!

I love cootie catchers and this Pi Day Cootie Catcher from Teaching is a Gift has perfectly themed questions and answers for Pi Day.

Here’s a fun math art project to create a Pi Skyline Art using graph paper by What Do We Do All Day.

Pi Day Bracelets are a great way for kids to understand all the numbers. This project by Pink Stripey Socks has kids stringing beads of different colors to make a bracelet according to Pi’s digits.

Tinker Lab has a printable Pi Day Grid Art where kids can choose 3 colors and give themselves 14 minutes to design 15 boxes however they like!

And you are never too young to learn about Pi! Pieces by Polly is a Kindergarten teacher who has some fun and cute Kindergarten Pi Day activities for little ones regarding Pi.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @
