The days are getting shorter, my Amazon wish list is getting longer, and kids are getting older! What better way to document a passing year than to create a time capsule with your family. A time capsule is a container that holds present day items — such as letters, photos, and newspaper clippings — that you hide away, to be opened at a much later date. Odds are you’ll never forget 2020, but a time capsule will help your kids remember it for themselves. What is one thing essential to any time capsule? The interview questions! We’ve rounded up the best time capsule questions for kids and adults to answer. These q’s will get the whole fam thinking and reflecting on the year. Pro tip: Make a Chatbook Year Book and use text pages to write out kids’ interview answers. Then, you can drop that book into your time capsule and get a great surprise when you open it in 10 years! Grab a pen and paper and let’s get started.
