This activity could be done at any time of the year (first day of school, 4th of July, birthday, etc.). Just keep the envelop in a secret place and remember to open it on the same date the following year. You could also save it for a certain day of the school year-invite family members in, serve light snacks and have them complete the time capsule together.
Setting Up the Time Capsule Area
Gather some winter or holiday themed items and designate a table in your house for families to go to and complete their time capsule sheets. Provide the sheets, fancy pencils, envelopes, glue sticks, a scale, and measuring tape and let the memory making go from there!
