Capturing a Moment in Time

To make a time capsule, you need a large can and art supplies. Ask your child what they think future generations would want to know about life in our times. Then cut out pictures of her favorite things from magazines. Ask your child to write a letter to the future, explaining a typical day. Then, decorate the can and bury the can outside.
