Preserve Memories With a Time Capsule.

Pop culture and technology seem to change so quickly.  There is always something new on the horizon.  What we and our children seem to adore now, may be headed for the trash bin next year.  Instead, why not preserve some memories of things you love by creating your own TIME CAPSULE.  It’s easy.

Get a clean jar or coffee can – something with a tight lid.   Now, fill it with things that you want to remember years from now.  Favorite photos, art work, report cards, trinkets or souvenirs from vacations or fun events, postcards, lists of popular songs, toys, movies, TV shows you enjoy.  You can add a list of favorite snacks/foods, or put in empty wrappers from the same. An old cell phone, DVD disk, movie ticket stubs, baby clothes, coins, anything you want. A newspaper or magazine page.  The possibilities are endless.  Be sure to date it.  A sticky label will do the trick.

Once you have the items you want to preserve, seal up the container and “bury” it.  You don’t have to dig a hole in the earth for this.  Tuck it away in a closet or garage and then forget about it.  For more tips on making TIME CAPSULES, visit the RedTed Art link below.

  1. I always wanted to try this with the kids when they were little but kept forgetting. I was going to have them put their art and writing in their. But, honestly, I can’t think of what I’d put in mine! 🙂

  2. Great blog. I’m in the process of parting with the “treasures” I’ve saved over the past forty plus years. That means deciding what to part with, including things from our childrens’ childhoods. This cheers me up as a way to give a flavor of their early years without holding on to so much.
