DIY Solar Eclipse Viewer

Learn to build your own solar eclipse viewer! NASA-approved solar eclipse glasses are sold out almost everywhere, but you can build your won solar eclipse “glasses” with this pinhole projector. To safely view the solar eclipse, all you need is a box (i.e. shoe box, cereal box), aluminum foil, scissors or mat knife, tape, white paper, and a sharp point to make a hole (i.e. thumbtack, needle). Use this solar eclipse viewer with your back towards the sun. Make sure you never look directly at the sun! Hope everyone enjoys their solar eclipse / sun viewing experience…and forgive me for the craft fail of running out of duct tape! 😉
