Back in October, my kiddos filled out a time capsule paper about themselves. We then put them in paper towel tubes covered with plastic wrap and then I buried them all! At least my kiddos THINK I buried them!! :) Shhhhh....don't tell.
They were really just in this Target bag, in my closet in my classroom, but it sounds so much more fun to say that they were buried in a box in my backyard. The great thing is....my kiddos REALLY think I buried them.
It probably helped that I sprinkled some dirt on the bag and a little in the bag. I made sure to apologize to my kiddos for the dirt and told them to be careful and just wipe it off. :) It was all about the experience and my kiddos were thrilled. That's the important part....
Here's some pics:
This is what they were in all year. But imagine this bag in a box in my backyard and it becomes a much more memorable experience!!
We curled up their time capsule papers and put them in these paper towel tubes. Tied some plastic wrap on the end and ta-da!
This little boy is such a sweetie.
This little girl loves to draw. Her handwriting has gotten better too thank goodness!
Check out that microphone!
I've done this time capsule activity the last couple of years and it's always such a hit!
Tomorrow we're camping....I gotta go find some flashlights!! :)
