Pay it Forward is an awesome idea to pair with any activity because it encourages generosity and kindness. During our Pay it Forward Pie Day activity, teens made one pie for themselves and one pie for someone else. If they wanted to, they could wrap the gift pie with cellophane and tie it with pretty ribbons.
This activity was mostly about eating pie, but there is a larger movement that encourages random acts of kindness. You can learn more about it from the Pay it Forward Foundation. Pay it Forward Day is April 28th, and Pi Day is March 14, or 3/14. It would be a great idea to make pie on Pi Day, or to have a Pay it Forward Day activity on April 28, but then again maybe we don’t need a special day to eat pie or be kind.
Here are some of the pie supplies we had out: mini graham cracker pie crusts, chocolate pudding, cherry pie filling, apple pie filling, peach pie filling, mixed berry pie filling, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate chips (white, dark, peanut butter), coconut, mini m&ms, toffee crumbles, and crushed Oreos.
You can count on high attendance for this program 🙂
Note: Leave time for cleanup. Pie stuff is sticky.
