Wow! Christmas was such a treat and blessing. Time spent with family and friends is priceless! Believe it or not, New Year’s Eve is right around the corner. Gasp! As my children have gotten older, we have been able to enjoy New Year’s Eve a little more each year. We almost all made it to midnight last year.
This year, I wanted to try something new and thought a New Year’s Eve Time Capsule would be a perfect activity for my 10 year old , 13 year old, and some of their friends. How fun is this to fill out and see how different everyone is and then to open it back up later to see how we all have changed. Here is the printable for our New Year’s Eve Time Capsule…
How fun would this be to pull out later and compare. I geared this one towards older elementary and teens….see the App question? In this day and age, I will be happy just to see a book choice filled out. I have seen so many great ways to store these until next year, including this idea by KelliCrowe …
We made a simple New Year’s Eve Time Capsule with a few things we had on hand…
I simply spray painted a metal candy container with silver spray paint. I then hot glued some silver tinsel around the bottom and around the lid. I then tied on a chalkboard tag with a little warning curious children!
I can’t wait to let my children, and some of their friends, fill these out and then put them away until next year. My kids are so different and I can only imagine how different their answers will be!

What an awesome idea. It has inspired me to start a family tradition with my Dad and my kids and grandkids. I think it would be great to do this each year and 10 or 15 years from now open them up and see how we have grown and all the stuff we put in from the past. Great family activity.
This is such a cute idea! I did this with my students when I was a teacher and revisited them on the last day of school. It was amazing how many things changed over a school year. 🙂
