In the book “Math and Magic in Wonderland”, Lulu calms herself by reciting the digits of Pi and I can not think of a better day than today to begin…Happy Pi Day everyone and may these numbers bring a sense of calm to your weeks ahead. Here is what Lulu loves sing:
All the numbers stand in line
Reciting Pi is really great
It calms you down as you can see
The digits don’t end there’s always more
I hope you like this song of mine
GO ON A Pi ADVENTURE
You can find the book above on Amazon or even listen to it via Audible as they have a March special complete with a kid comedian package. The book is wonderful and has many other math adventures you can take with your child and Lulu’s twin Elizabeth.
Here is another song for those who dare to venture beyond the first 31 and go for 100! It’s catchy and filled with all kinds of rhymes. It is called 100 digits of Pi and you can find it at:
For more adventures try creating a Pi necklace if you have beads floating around and if not make your own! You can quill the beads by rolling papers you color yourself. Quilling is a great fine motor work out and very unique piece to wear or send to a friend!
GRAPH IT OUT
Graph out your numbers and make a Pi city! You can print graph paper online if you do not have any handy at home or make a pie line circle art piece and color code the numbers. Continue the art adventure by creating you very own pie man or pie chain!
COOK A PIE or Pi
In the kitchen, put your pie making skills to the test! You can make a spinach pie, banana pie or even a mystery pie to share with your family, If pie is not your favorite…don’t forget the other pie…the pizza pie and create the Pi symbol out of vegetables or pepperoni!
FIND YOUR BIRTHDAY IN Pi
Lastly, see where your birthday falls in Pi! Here is the ink and see where everyone one in your family falls! End the celebration digging into a great story about “Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi”!
