2011 Time Capsule

We decided to start a new tradition in January. We will make a time capsule every year in the month of January (preferably in the beginning of the month), and then on New Years Eve, we will take out what was in there and see how we have changed!

Our Supplies

Writing our favorite things down:



We had the kids draw a picture of our family, and write their names. I love to see how their writing develops, and they will love that too!

Then we stuffed the capsule!

Sealed it!

And we will keep it around our house, so we can see it, and anticipate opening it in a whole year!

Happy New Year!

What a great idea! I love it and I'm sure it will be so fun to see how they grow in a year.

so so cute! I think we'll do that!
Keeping it around for a whole year? I may have to hide it, as I'm sure I'll be forgetting what I wrote, and want to see it.
Thanks for the dar.LING idea!
