Pumpkin Pi(e)

Take an orange shirt. Print out the Pi symbol. Tape it to your shirt. Poof, pumpkin pi. Bonus points if you add a Starbucks cup to become a Pumpkin Pi Latte. (Yes, we know it's supposed to be "pumpkin spice latte" but that's not nearly as fun.)

Graduated Cylinder

Grab your old graduation cap from high school or college. Take a piece of poster board and wrap it around your body. Tape together your poster board cylinder. Draw some lines on it; don't worry, they don't have to be to scale. Put on the cap and voila, you are a graduated cylinder.
