Ideas For Time Capsule

Advice and love for 18th birthday:

My daughter is doing a time capsule for my granddaughter's first birthday.

I am taking a picture of her with me and her grandpa. I am 60 now, so I do know if we will be around when she's 18.

I want her to have a picture with us. I don't have any with my grandparents, they died when I was young. We also are including a 18th birthday card with love and advice along with a music box that plays "You are my sunshine".

Thank you for your submission, that's a really cute idea!

If you do a time capsule for your child, ask the grandparents (or also other relatives) for input. They can contribute written cards or letters with some personal words and advise, some photos or other items they want to pass on to their grandchild. This could even be a heirloom.
You never know whether you'll still be around by the time your grandchild will open the time capsule.
By including it at this early stage you can be sure your message and / or keepsake will be passed on to the offspring!

Thanks again,
