First week of school time capsule- stamp & date their itty handprints, measure their height with yarn, and have them fill out a little first day info sheet with their self portrait on the back. Then save 'till the last day of school and have them open it and do the exact same activity! It’ll be so much fun to see how much they grow and change this year!! Love this idea! (download sheets!) #PaperMateBTS

This is SUCH a great idea! I want to do this! "What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal." Cutest thing ever! Love this!
