Snug fitting eclipse glasses

I had my reservations about purchasing one size fits all glasses for my kids but I want us all to get to view the solar eclipse safely. The main concern I had was that the glasses wouldn't stay on and their curiosity would win out despite the glasses being on the ground and they'd burn their eyeballs looking at the sun. Well, problem solved!!

First I covered the ear pieces in tape to add some structural stability to the cardstock.

Then I punched two small holes in each ear piece.

Next I threaded elastic cording through the holes and tied them off.

All set!!

I think they're snug enough against his cheeks even so no escape sunlight to blind him. He will be off backpacking during the eclipse so I did want a tiny bit of space for him to look at the ground since he can't see anything except the sun through the lenses of these glasses. I feel like he's pretty safe in them and I'm excited for him to experience this amazing event.
