Looking for some basic laser glasses for <50mw ~ >400-<540?

Hey guys, last time I asked about glasses, I was told not to cheap out, and to get a nice pair for my 300mw 532.

Boy am I glad I did. The eagle pair glasses are very nice and appear to offer lots of protection.

Now,

I want to teach my nephews about lasers and laser safety.

They've all used pointers before and know not to look into the laser or point it at people/aircraft/cars, but I'd like to start teaching them a bit about lasers and laser safety.

I'm obviously not going to throw my 300mw 532 into their hands, the sheer brightness of that scares me.

What I intend to do is to make them some slightly higher power lasers that are the more exotic colors (405/473/515/520). Now most diodes you can find will likely not be 1-5mw, but the sub 50mw range is totally feasible, and would provide them with lasers that are bright enough to see clearly at daytime, but not crazy enough they're gonna light their neighbors on fire.

Anyways, to end the rant,

Even though it's supposedly relatively safe to look at the dot of a 20 or 30mw laser, I still want them to feel like it's a tool instead of a toy, and want them to be safe at the same time.

Do you guys have any glasses you'd recommend that will protect them from 20 or 30mw, but won't break the bank like buying 4 pairs of the eagle pair glasses?
Also the OD5 is a bit Overkill XD

For the record, they're all over 10 years old, I'm just trying to make sure they don't end up on the news someday.
