Crafters, I don't think I saw anything here on Eclipse 2017!  Did you make any crafts for this?  if not, you have plenty of time to make something for Eclipse 2024!!  Here is a quick t-shirt I made from a tutorial I saw here: http://kidscrafts.craftgossip.com/last-minute-solar-eclipse-t-shirt-project/2017/08/19/    It was so easy and fast to make and the best part of it was I had all the supplies already (including the t-shirt) so I was able to whip it out on Sunday evening before the Monday eclipse.

I'm lucky that Chicago has many museums, one of which is Adler Planetarium. Another pic:

That is SO COOL! We did go to the university to view it but I guess our dire warnings about not even peaking up at the sun scared the kids too much, they all wanted to go home! We ended up borrowing a cereal box viewer and a pair of glasses to quickly look but we didn't do any crafts. Next time Smiley.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

I can't wait to see what the reactions will be from little kids in 2017 to when they see the 2024 eclipse.  The Adler had a telescope thingy that reflected the image of the sun onto a screen so you could at least see the shape/shadow of the eclipse or the sunspots.
