Now that my son is old enough we’re having some real fun on New Year’s Eve, starting with this New Year’s Time Capsule for Kids!
Since starting kindergarten this year, my 6-year-old has gotten a real handle on his reading and writing skills and actually enjoys them both. So, I’m putting him to the test this New Year’s Eve with this fun and lightly educational new year’s activity. You too can print this New Year’s Time Capsule for Kids totally free at the end of this post.

Use this day to help your child reflect on the past year in a fun and positive way by asking them questions about their favorite things and then write them down on the time capsule worksheet. It will be fun to revisit their answers next year!

How to Make a Time Capsule
- Fill out the label and the worksheet. If your child can write on their own, let them fill out the answers (which you can talk about together).
- Cut out the label and hot glue the label to a small mason jar.
- Once completed, fold up the worksheet and place it in the mason jar.
- If your child wants to add a few other small trinkets or notes, let them pick them out and toss them in the jar as well.
- Seal the jar and find a place to bury it in your yard.
- Collect a few stones or rocks, paint them if you want, and place them on the ground to mark the place you buried your time capsule. This will make it easier to find next year! I suggest also setting a timer in your calendar so you don’t forget to dig up the time capsule next year.

Hi! I’m Meagan I just turned 40! I’ve been married for 14 years. I’m a proud boy mom, happily navigating my way through the little boy years. I met my husband over 20 years ago in high school; we got married 10 years later after graduating from the University of South Florida. I currently help run a family business with my parents while blogging about my life and love of DIY projects!
When I’m not at a kids sports game, I enjoy spending time with my family on a beach anywhere. I also love decorating and organizing, fun DIY projects, bargain shopping, and eating out or in! I also love Barbecue anything and a good show or movie on Netflix.
