How to Make a Pinhole Projector to Watch the Solar Eclipse

Posted on August 21, 2017 by Lee Norris

The internet has been freaking out about today's solar eclipse and for good reason, this opportunity only comes along once or twice a lifetime. If you're like me though, you forgot to grab some glasses to safely view it and you didn't want to drop $100 on the paper throwaways selling on Amazon. Luckily, you can make a DIY projector in just a few minutes and have a fun and safe eclipse experience!

First, cut a 3" hole in a piece of cardboard. (We used our handing Creative Crates!)

Cover the hole with aluminum foil and prick a small hole in the center.

Take a second piece of cardboard and tape a piece of blank white paper in the center.

Ta-da! Easy projector! Stand with the eclipse to your back and watch as it's projected onto the paper through the tiny hole in the aluminum foil!
