Eclipse Cookies! We are going to have the kids make their own eclipse sugar cookies. They will enjoy frosting their cookies with yellow or white frosting to represent the bright sun. Then they will top it off with an Oreo, which represents the moon covering the sun.

Edible constellations. Stick marshmallows on pretzels to make the big dipper and other constellations
