Solar Eclipse Party


The solar eclipse is coming 4/8/24, and it’s been talked about a lot. Most people are dreading it because of the large influx of people expected to flood the area. But I’ve decided it’s happening regardless, and it’s a great educational experience!

I also recently read “Memory Making Mom” by Jessica Smartt. So now I’m on a kick for making memories and traditions for my family! Of course an eclipse of this caliber doesn’t happen often, but the memories will hopefully last! 

(I also highly recommend the book, it provides ideas for traditions in a gentle way. Great read!)

We will be having an “Eclipse Party”! Pinterest has loaded me up with ideas, and I’m excited to share some of my favorites with you so you can prepare your own Eclipse festivities.

Make an eclipse snack pack- Moon Pies, Milky Ways, Star Crunch, Sun-Maid raisins, Sunny-D, Sun Chips, Cosmic Brownies, Capri Suns, Eclipse gum- all packaged up nicely and ready to create a little party bag of snacks!

Eclipse pizza! Slice pepperonis to show the progression of the Eclipse. This one will likely require a quick google to see exactly how to cut the pepperonis but it’s on my list for us to try.

Become astronauts with jet packs! I think I’m most excited to do this one. Two liter bottles attached together with streamers of red and orange coming out the bottom (put the lid facing down). BLAST OFF FOR THE ECLIPSE! 

Remember not to look directly at the Sun at any point during the event. Eclipse glasses allow you to safely view it. Despite how common solar eclipses are (occurring about every 18 months), it won’t happen in totality again in Arkansas for many of our lifetimes. This is our chance! Put on your glasses and soak it in, friends!
