In 2009, the U.S house of Representatives voted to Officially Recognize March 14th as National Pi Day. It is also shared with Albert Einstein’s Birthday!

I am baking Pi Pies to celebrate. Each family member likes their own kind of pie though so I had to do individual pies. (Uh, no. I am not “making” pies. I said “Baking” with a “B”.)

Luckily bakeries and grocery stores sell individual pies. There are even frozen pies that can be microwaved in 5 minutes! Have some fun with your child by having a bit of dessert in no time at all for pi day.

You can download the free printables that I have in my photos to use at home. Just print, cut and tape to the back of a toothpick! So fast fun and easy you know it came from jenny at dapperhouse!

Enjoy your free printables for Albert Einstein Birthday and Pi Day on March 14th @dapperhouse

### FUN FACTS about Pi Day & Albert Einstein

- Pi is a number represented by 3.14 which is why March (3) 14th was picked to celebrate.
- People from all over the world recognize pi day.
- What is pi? It is the Greek letter “π” symbol used in math to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. This number is 3.14159 but really this number goes on and on.

- Einstein was the most famous scientist of all time. He was a physicist who created the Theory of Relativity and produced the most famous equation ever E = mc². This means energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light squared.
- Einsteins was against racism. He was friends with a founder of the NAACP named W.E.B. Dubois and during a 1946 speech Einstein called racism “a disease”.
- Albert Einstein loved music, especially the violin, and said that if he was not a scientist he would choose to be a musician.

We had a lot of fun with Pi Day this year. It’s always fun to celebrate “holidays’ like this. My daughters and I are very into Japanese culture, food, and things like manga and anime. There is a product called Pocky, which is pretty much a stick of cookie/cracker that is dipped in chocolate. In Japan, Nov. 11 (11-11) is known as Pocky day, since the number 1 looks like a pocky stick.
