Time Capsule

Help your child create a time capsule to be opened next year--or ten years from now.

Materials

  • Pen
  • Paper
  • Small shoebox
  • Current photo of your child
  • Current photo of your family
  • Other meaningful keepsakes
  • Tape or ribbon

Directions

  1. Help your child prepare information to put into her time capsule by asking her questions (and writing down her responses if necessary). You might ask about favorite foods, songs, activities, friends, and so on.

  2. Ask your child what she looks forward to in the coming years and what she expects life to be like next year or when she's a teenager or an adult.

  3. When everything is written down, place the paper in a small shoebox along with a current photo of your child, a current photo of your family, and other meaningful keepsakes.

  4. Place the lid on the shoebox and write your child's name on it, the date on which the time capsule is being closed, and the date on which it's to be opened.

  5. Secure the time capsule with tape or ribbon and keep it in a safe place until it's time to open it.
