Talking it over


Make your own time capsule

Find a secure container and put together a few things you want people to remember from your time. It can be coins, toys, magazines, recipes, or something else altogether. Be creative! Be sure to put the date on or inside your time capsule, and the date you want it to be opened written on the outside. When you’re finished, find a good place to hide it. You could bury it, put it under your porch or even up a tree in the middle of a forest. Just make sure it won’t be found easily. With luck, somebody will be excited to find it someday!
