Preserve the Memory of Your Child’s First Year of School

If your child is starting kindergarten this year, make a time capsule together. 

Include a picture of your child on the first day of school.  Add other pictures – your house, your child’s school, and your pet.  Add a copy of your local newspaper.

Make some predictions together.  What does your child want to be?  Where does she think she’ll go to college?

Seal the keepsakes in a box and put them in a safe place – in a lock box, for instance.  Open the box with your child when she graduates from high school.                

Parents make the difference!
