It’s remarkable how time flies but it’s also sad how precious family memories fade as the years go by. A family time capsule is a great way to remind us of this unique, historic time. Here’s all you need to do:

Choose a Capsule

Make sure to choose a solid box. Wood or metal is best but a strong shoebox will also work. Decorating it with your children is a great way to get them involved!

Choose Your Treasure

Add items such as photos, letters, a favourite stuffed toy, a homeschool schedule or perhaps a book you read during the pandemic. Mark dates and descriptions so you’ll be able to easily identify them.

Choose Your Spot

Once you’ve filled the capsule, seal it tightly in plastic and decide where and for how long you’re going to stash it. Just don’t forget where your treasure’s buried!

This project is a simple yet effective way of preserving your memories and personal stories for generations to come, but it’s even more meaningful during times like this. Don’t put it off though. The key to seeing the past in the future is to start today!
