Time Capsule Letter
Time Capsule Letter On New Year's Eve invite your kids to write a letter to their future selves. They can list their favorite things (books songs ice-cream flavorsTV shows foods colors animals games) and make predictions (how tall will they be in a year?).
Pack away the letters with the holiday decorations so that they'll be out of sight but easy to find next year. On December 31 2010 have your kids open their letters and see how much their tastes have changed -- or haven't!
That's a cool idea. You can even do that as an adult. My tastes don't change as quickly anymore, but it's like a snapshot in time. Wait 5-10 years and you can say "I remember that!" And also see what plans you've accomplished. Thanks for the idea. :)
