Do you have a time capsule for your kids? I have a box for all of my kids filled with favorite art work, keepsakes, and questionnaires I ask the kids each year. I have the First Day of School Questionnaire that I do with my kids, but I just created this Time Capsule Questionnaire for Kids that I’m doing at the end of the year.
This simple questionnaire is such a great way to reflect on the past year and to write their answers down before I forget them. Because we all know that even if we tell ourselves we won’t forget a memory from our kids, it just happens that we do.
I love asking these questions to my boys. Sometimes their answers surprise me and other times they don’t because I totally know things like their favorite food or color. The one answer that really surprised me when I asked my kindergartener was what he enjoys learning about. Apparently he’s really interested in learning about “how babies get born”. Hmmm…we haven’t talked really about this, but I still wrote it down because I’ll laugh at that answer when I look back on this in the future.
At the top of the sheet there are 4 stars for you to put in the year. Of course for this year, we wrote 2015.
