It’s almost Pi Day (I know some wish it were Pie Day but hey, you can always celebrate Pi with Pie! :)) First, it is fun to note that this “holiday” is observed on March 14 because of the date’s representation as 3/14 in month/day date format. Moreover, this representation adheres to the commonly used approximation of 3.14 for π.

Here’s a fun video you can show to your children or class (who recognizes Winnie?? 🙂 ):

With a wide range of crafts, games, and educational resources, you can keep your children engaged and entertained throughout the holiday season.

We then delved into the fun and educational Thanksgiving crafts for kids. From creating handmade Thanksgiving cards to making adorable turkey decorations, these crafts not only provide an opportunity for kids to showcase their creativity but also serve as a wonderful way to bond with classmates and family members. The festive Thanksgiving games for kids were another highlight, offering exciting ways to keep children active and entertained during this festive time.

Additionally, we explored educational Thanksgiving activities for kids, which included lessons and digital teaching resources.
