									Make time stand still with a newborn time capsule

Time stands still the moment your baby enters this world, and you’ll want
to remember the moment for years to come. A newborn time capsule is a
great way to commemorate your baby’s birth and share with him a snapshot
of that special time when he is grown.

To create your time capsule, you need to gather several things that
reflect the events of the day.

Newspapers make a great addition to any time capsule. Local papers tell
the story of what was happening in your community on the day he was born,
while national papers provide a glimpse of then-current events. Both
offer the opportunity for you to stroll down memory lane, as well as give
your child a brief history lesson when the capsule is finally opened.

Money and stamps provide fun signs of the times, too. Throw in a few
different coin denominations and one or more sheets of stamps. If
possible, make a list of prices for goods and services, like milk and
bread or gasoline. Whether done on the computer or simply handwritten on
a sheet of paper, this is a nice addition.

You can personalize the time capsule by adding things like baby’s first
picture and the outfit he wears home from the hospital. Take time to
write a special letter welcoming your child and sharing your hopes for
his future to give the capsule even more meaning.

You are limited only by your imagination – and the size of your capsule
container.

The container, however, is another important part of this project. Make
it as simple or ornate as you like. Some online vendors carry special
newborn time capsule kits, while others offer containers meant to stand
the test of time. But you needn’t invest a lot of money to make a nice
time capsule. Simply choose a can or box and decorate it to your taste. A
seal with the date of its intended opening – perhaps baby’s 18th birthday
-- adds a nice touch, as well.

On that special day, you and your child will make yet another special
moment in time, as you enjoy the contents preserved in his newborn time
capsule.
