Preserve the Past with a Family Time Capsule

It's amazing how time flies!  There are so many precious family memories that fade as time goes by.   There is a way to turn back the clock though -- sort of.  It's called a time capsule and it's a fun and easy way to relive the past!

  1. Choose a Capsule - Decide what kind of container you’re going to use.  Although you have many options, a simple box decorated by your children is usually the best idea as they'll feel much more involved.

  2. Choose Your Treasure - Ask the whole family to contribute items such as photos, baby shoes, trinkets, letters, school papers, hair clippings or a stuffed animal.  Mark dates and descriptions so you can easily identify items when you open the time capsule.

  3. Choose Your Spot - Once you’ve filled the capsule, seal it up tight and decide where and for how long you’re going to hide it.  You'll also want to be sure that the box is well protected from the elements.  It's a good idea to completely seal your time capsule in thick plastic.

There are endless ways to make a family time capsule but the most important thing to remember is to have fun as every moment is a memory making opportunity!  This project is a simple, unique and effective way of preserving the past.  Don't put it off though -- the key to seeing the past in the future is to start today!
