One of our first-week-of-school projects was making these simple time capsules using a cardboard tube. Start by collecting, writing, or drawing some things to go inside. My girls traced their hands, drew a self-portrait, filled in a list of favorites, and thought of three things they want to learn about. We also cut a string to mark each of their heights.
Roll-up your things and insert them into the tube (we used toilet paper tubes).
Wrap up your tube with some tissue paper and ribbon – then hide them away till another day! We’ll be pulling ours out at the end of the school year – maybe I’ll sneak in a little surprise treat then, too!
