The Great American Solar Eclipse is happening next week, y’all! I know some of you couldn’t care less, but this mama is excited! I can’t wait for my kids to experience this! To help them understand the solar eclipse before it happens we plan to dedicate a full homeschool day to eclipse crafts, activities, and videos.
Saving other mamas some precious time is important to me so I compiled all of the resources that I will be using into this post to keep you from having to spend hours looking up ideas. You’re welcome—sing that like Maui…you know you want to 😉
**Please don’t look directly at the sun without proper eye protection!
