Being married to a statistician, that means March 14th is one of our family’s favorite fun holidays. It is Pi Day – yes, “pi” as in 3.14. But, it also means “pie”, as in dessert and pizza! And, having two mathematically minded kids who love pie desserts makes it all the more fun for us!
So, we’ve created a fun Pi Day scavenger hunt for you and your kids to do at home while enjoying a nice slice of fresh pie from one of Wichita’s local restaurants and bakeries.
