A time capsule is a container, such as a shoe box or mason jar, that you feel with items from the present day. For example, you can include newspaper clippings, artwork, trinkets, a report card, or anything else important to you.
Creating a time capsule to hide and open at a later date is a great family activity. Kids can choose items to include and even write a letter to their future selves to include.
