Have you ever wished you could remember all the things you thought were cool 10 years ago? Me too. So today I’m going to attempt to create memories by making a time capsule. I can’t wait to see what the kids and I will find to put in there! Maybe some of the kids’ artwork or clothes they’ve outgrown. Now I’m kind of wishing I hadn’t mailed Little C’s binkies to her baby cousin (translation = trashed them).
I have no idea if we’ll wait 10 years to open it, but even if we only wait a year, I think it will be fun to see what surprises we left for ourselves. What would you put in your time capsule?
Big C jumped into this activity with both feet. Before I could search through Little C’s room to find significant items that were small enough to fit into our capsule, Big C had completely filled it, proudly exclaiming, “We’re done Mom. Let’s seal it!”
Upon further examination, I disapproved every single item Big C had chosen, reminding him that he probably wouldn’t want to pass even a few days without his Navy SEAL action figure and that Little C wouldn’t be thrilled to lose her precious Swiper the Fox. Back to the drawing board.
After serious deliberation, the 3 of us gathered the perfect agglomeration of memories:
- Outgrown Batman Underoos
- An invitation to Big C's upcoming camoflauge themed 6th birthday party
- Schoolwork, coloring sheets, and fingerpaintings
- A Size 4 diaper from the last package Little C ever wore
- Outgrown pink Spongebob pajamas
- Yellow hair rubberbands
- And of course pictures
