Make your own time capsule

A time capsule is a box of special things that you put together and open one year from now.


  • A box

  • 5 special things eg. a toy, a piece of jewellery, a book, a photo (whatever you like)

  • Paper

  • Pens / pencils / textas

Place all the special things you have found around the house into the box (if they're not yours, make sure you ask first!)

Then, grab your paper and pens and write a letter to your future self. Make sure you include some of your favourite things right now such as colours, foods and hobbies as these might have changed by the time you open it!

You could also trace your hand and then you can see how much your hand grows in a year! If you can, get other people to write letters to future you and put them in too.

Now all you have to do is decorate your box, seal it tight, and store it somewhere special. Don’t forget to write the date you get to open it again eg. DO NOT OPEN UNTIL APRIL 2021!

Have fun!
