Pi Day Is So Much Fun to Celebrate with Kids!
Want an easy way to make March fun for your kids?
March 14 has become known as Pi Day. This date was selected because the first three digits of the mathematical concept “Pi” are 3.14 – just like March 14 (3/14).
Over the years, my boys and I have enjoyed this educational fun day in our homeschool in a variety of ways.
When the boys were younger, I stuck with basic explanations of what Pi means and did a simple Pi Day craft.
As the boys got older, we took it up a level each year. It’s been so cool to learn more about Pi with my boys.
To make it easier to celebrate this fun day in March, I’m sharing this free Pi Day activities pack. Check it out!
What You’ll Find in This Pi Day Activities Pack
This free set of Pi Day worksheets has 7 pages with activities for almost all ages.
In this PDF (printable) pack, you’ll find:
- Happy Pi Day! Fun Facts sheet
- Happy Pi Day – Measuring Circles for Pi Chart
- Pi Day Circumference (fun activity for calculating the circumference of different types of pies)
- Happy Pi Day! Word Search Puzzle

Cool Ways to Boost the Fun with These Free Printables
You can just print-and-go with these Pi Day worksheets. If you need something quick and easy-to-use, go for this option.
I suggest starting with the Happy Pi Day! Fun Facts sheet. Use it as a guide to teach about or review facts about Pi. Ask your kids if they have any questions or tidbits that they’d like to add.
You’ll find some cool facts to chat about Pi Day, like:
- It’s also Albert Einstein’s birthday
- Pi is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter
- The digits of Pi go on forever without repeating
- The Pi symbol was adopted by Swiss mathematician Leonard Euler in 1737
If you’re working with a larger group, you may want to pair up your students for the Measuring Circles for Pi activity. The students could take turns using a ruler to measure and record the data.
You could have your students complete the Happy Pi Day! coloring page and hang it up as a poster or in a group on a bulletin board.
If you are celebrating Pi Day with younger kids (or just want to add a few hands-on activities), bring out some playdough and make some “pies”. Practice writing the Pi symbol in the playdough. For extra fun, demonstrate how to use a ruler and measure your “pies”.
My boys love the challenge of writing out the irrational number of Pi. They challenge each other to see who can do it the fastest (and get the most decimal places!)
Oh, and make sure to gather supplies to make it even easier to celebrate Pi Day with kids using these printable activities:
- erasable pens (optional)
- color pencils
