New Years is a great time to remember all the exciting events of the past year. Have each member of the family write down something unique that happened in the past year and put it in your own time capsule along with photos to be opened in the future.
Clean, Empty Coffee Can
Time Capsule Print Out
Cover the coffee can with index paper to give you a smooth working surface.
Cover and decorate your can with decorative paper. We had some shiny book covers left over from Back-to-School. You can also use wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, aluminum foil... anything. Click on Printables and use the Time Capsule Print Out or make your own.
Fill with interesting things like photographs, trading cards, a cassette you recorded, finished homework, drawings, information about you and your family, happy meal toys, your favorite recipe or anything you think someone in the future might be interested in.
