Fun solar activities (for you & your kids) while you’re at home

By Annie Wolf on March 20, 2020

We know many of you are facing a very different world right now — working from home, kids out of school — and we wanted to provide resources for solar-focused activities to keep all kids (younger, older, and those who are kids at heart) busy, engaged, and learning.

We’ll keep updating this post as we find more resources.

Have suggestions? We’d love to hear them! Let us know on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram!

Attend a virtual screening of Current Revolution

On Tuesday, March 31 (7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time), we’re hosting a free online screening of the film Current Revolution — with live chat during the movie and a Q&A session with Solar United Neighbors staff after the movie.

RSVP on Eventbrite

Do some coloring

Get crafty! Learn about solar, make a solar oven, and earn the SUN Patch

Share your solar story

Send us a five-minute video highlighting your solar array, why you went solar, what your bill looks like today, and/or what you would tell others about going solar!

Take a look at an example from our Colorado program. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be as professional.)
