Happy (almost) New Year!

A few years ago we made our first year-end time capsule.  It turned out so cute!  It was simple to put together and this year I created my own printable kid survey to share with all of you.  Lily has been sitting here working on hers – and I sit here incredulous that I have a kid who is old enough to be filling out her on page.  Sheesh!

I have seen various examples of these year-at-a-glance collections – some that include pictures, toys and other trinkets, memorabilia like ticket stubs, family surveys and more. Some are placed in boxes, others in jars or even bags and envelopes. Some are buried in the bark yard, some stored away, some displayed on a shelf.

The specific details are up to you. Here is what I used:

:: pint sized ball jar and lid

:: collage of pictures taken during the past year and printed on plain white paper

:: a picture of each kid (school picture, etc)

:: survey that Lily filled out with her likes and dislikes, etc. Print your own free copy of my 2018 Year End Kid Survey.

Assembling the time capsule is the easy part!

Place family survey(s) behind the picture collage with the pictures facing OUT. Fold papers in half lengthwise and place in jar.

Stick school picture(s) in the middle of rolled up papers.

Place somewhere safe and enjoy opening and exploring them in years to come!
