Are you having people over for the holidays or for a New Year's Eve celebration? Or are you going somewhere to celebrate either of those occasions? If so, this Time Capsule activity is for you! Bring a bit of "Awwwww, cute!" to the party along with an appetizer or dessert and you'll be the hit of the night!!
Each year we have everyone over to our house for Christmas Eve. We do a silly Dollar Store gift exchange, have a goofy ornament making contest, and order pizza. Nothing fancy, just fun! We also make a Family Time Capsule. The best part is reading the sheets from the previous year and seeing how much we've changed!! Fun, fun, fun!
Even though we create this on Christmas Eve, this activity could really be done at any time of the year (first day of school, 4th of July, birthday, etc.). Just keep the envelops in a secret place and remember to open it on the same date the following year. You could also save it for a certain day of the school year-invite family members in, serve light snacks and have them complete the time capsule together.
To get started...
Setting Up the Time Capsule Area
Gather some winter or holiday themed items and designate a table in your house for families to go to and complete their time capsule sheets. Provide the sheets, fancy pencils, envelopes, glue sticks, a scale, and measuring tape and let the memory making go from there!
