Here’s what author Anita Yasuda has to say about this activity:

“Long ago eclipses were not understood. It was frightening to see daylight disappear as a black disc slowly slid in front of the sun. It was as if the sun had left Earth for good. The word eclipse comes from a Greek word meaning “abandon” or “leave.” Follow the instructions below to see how an eclipse really works. Remember to never look directly at the real sun as that may damage your eyes.”
