    Decorate a mason jar with a photo than leave the jar out where it can be seen often, like on a kitchen shelf or in the family room. Throughout the year, drop in random artifacts like a photograph, a movie stub, a note of thoughts, and then on the following New Year's Eve, go through the time capsule to talk about the year you shared together. Cool idea for a family!

    Memory Jar: New Year time capsule- empty jar on Jan. 1, fill it during the year w/ notes of good things that happen during the year, ticket stubs, souvenirs. Break them out on New Year's Eve.

    Time capsule for baby's first birthday, to be opened when she's 18. What a fabulous activity to involve your party guests in. Have everyone bring something for the Time Capsule! Brilliant party idea! For party ideas for Baby's 1st birthday and more celebrations visit

    Family Time Capsule... And then we got the cool idea to just drop random things in it all year long: movie ticket stubs, a Yugio card, Max's "lucky rock" from a trip to visit friends in Alabama, political ads from a campaign the kids helped to work on, a stamp from a Christmas card we received, a Darth Vader sucker holder thing that looks way cooler than it works, John David's business card, a wrist band from the hospital visit where my eye dilated, a pop-cycle stick with a joke on it, a note I put into Alex's lunch when he was at camp, a silly band, the mysterious wishbone we found in our car..... And of course, a family photo in the front of the jar so we can enjoy it on the bookshelf

Time capsules! Must do this with the kids...maybe a new tradition for New Years Eve...

New Year's Time Capsule for kids! A fun family tradition and a great way to make a memory keepsake.

Make a sign & a table with blank paper & note cards for people to write a special letter or birthday message. For 1st birthday ideas could be: when you heard about baby's arrival, your first meeting, early impressions, future wishes, a note of blessing, your favorite photograph(s) with comments. Could make a tradition for each year or just do for 1st birthday & do a time capsule.
