Family Time Capsule
The beginning of the year is a time of celebration and remembrance. It's also a great excuse to get your child writing! Your child can use his developing writing skills to help record special family events and occasions from the previous year. In recalling the most memorable events from throughout the year, your child is exercising his critical thinking skills, too—an important skill for children of all ages.
“Wrap up” another great year with your family with this fun activity that engages your child and the whole family in creating a time capsule of special memories.
What You Need:
- Scraps of wrapping paper, saved from your holiday celebration
- Photos of family members, taken throughout the year
- Pens and pencils
- Plain paper, or holiday-themed stationery
- Stapler, or book rings
