33 Total Solar Eclipse Resources for Kids

Check out these solar eclipse resources to teach your kids about this pretty cool phenomenon!

The 2024 Total Solar Eclipse is happening next week, y’all, and my family lives in the path of totality. 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 day to eclipse crafts, activities, and videos.

Get Ready for The Total Solar Eclipse!

I originally wrote this post for the Great American Solar Eclipse that occurred in 2017 (in which we were not in the path of totality). Now here we are in 2024 getting ready for a new one!

Although solar eclipses happen often, it is very rare to be in the direct path of one- especially one that is supposed to last as long as the one we are preparing for now. April 8 is a great opportunity for many of us to experience a once-in-a-lifetime event with our children.

Saving other mamas a little bit of 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 🙂

**Please don’t look directly at the sun without proper eye protection!
