March 14th is celebrated as Pi Day by many math teachers and their students. For those of you not familiar with Pi Day, the numerical approximation of Pi is 3.14, making March 14th (3/14) Pi Day. I have one Pi Day Flag left in my Etsy Shop! Happy Pi Day :)
Today's project was making a cardboard box airplane. I used a utility knife on a wooden cutting board to shape the box and then we used a stapler to attach felt to the sides for decorating the plane. Dave helped by holding things in place while I used the stapler. I probably used about 1 yard of felt, which you can sometimes find on sale for less than $3 a yard.
My in-laws like to take cruises. The little guy recently visited them and learned that people hit golf balls off of the ships into the ocean. He thought that this sounded like a great idea. So, today, we made our very own cruise ship with a cardboard box, Elmer's Glue, Colored Paper and Streamers. I love making projects with the little guy from whatever we can find around the house. He had a great time creating it and then hitting golf balls off of the deck into the pretend ocean! I think that our next cardboard box project will be an airplane.
