“My Time Capsule” and Noon Year’s Eve Party updated for 2014



As this year comes to an end have your kiddos create a time capsule with some of their year’s favorite memories! If you are like me, you have a hard time remembering anything unless it gets written down so  have some fun writing down those memories with your kiddos to look at in future years! You can also include pictures or small mementos!

My friend Kelly created this “My Time Capsule” a couple years ago for a Noon Year’s Eve party (I recreated a 2014 sheet for you to print). I thought that was such a great idea to have the party and countdown at noon since I know my kids aren’t staying up until midnight (actually I rarely make it until midnight). See below for her great ideas on how to bring in the New Year with kiddos at noon!

Whether you do the Time Capsule with just your kids or have some friends over for a Noon Year’s Eve Party, have fun and enjoy the celebration!

The Stuff (for the Time Capsule):
My Time Capsule Sheet – print here
Toilet paper rolls (or paper towel)
Tissue paper
Ribbon
Stickers or other decorations
Optional – pictures or small mementos

The Fun:
1.Fill out the My Time Capsule Sheet - it now says 2014 (either trace or do a paint handprint).

2. Put the sheet and any other pics or small mementos in the toilet paper roll.

3. Wrap the toilet paper roll with tissue and tie ribbon around the ends.

4. Decorate with stickers (write Don't open until 12/31/15)!
