**Friday (3/14) is Pi Day**! Pi is a mathematical constant referring to the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. It's an irrational number, which means that it goes on forever and never shows a repeating pattern. Every year it's celebrated on 3/14 because the first three digits of Pi are 3,1, and 4. Now if you're looking for an easy way to celebrate Pi day, we've got a great

### How to Make Pi Day Bracelets:

### 1. Print out a list of

**Pi's digits.**(FYI- I used around 30 beads per bracelet.)

2.

**Assign each digit of Pi to a certain color.**(I made two different kinds of bracelets. For one type of bracelet, I assigned each digit to a different color. For the black and white bracelets, I assigned all odd numbers to black beads and all even numbers to white beads.)

3. Cut a piece of cord that's slightly longer than your wrist's circumference. Then, tape down one end.

**String your beads**according to your number assignments from step 2.

4. Once you've strung on enough beads, double knot your two cord ends together and trim the edges.

5. Had a lot of fun making your first bracelet? Well,

**keep going (like Pi!**Hee Hee...

**Proudly wear your Pi Day bracelets on Pi Day!**

(Or, give them to a math loving friend.)

Happy beading Pi Lovers!
