Launch a family time capsule with dad.
We all look for ways to preserve memories of special times with our loved ones. One Father’s Day activity everyone will love is creating a family time capsule together.
This shouldn’t be a solo project. Make the kids and dad part of the fun. Brainstorm which family mementos and treasures to stow away, so that a future unearthing will induce smiles all around.
Here’s how to start this fun Father’s Day activity, along with a few suggestions for what to stash in the time capsule:
Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” This timeless quote certainly rings true when it comes to kids’ craft projects. Instead of running down to the store to pick up a complex – and expensive – craft kit, just grab a shoebox and some art supplies and you’ve got a world of easy, family fun crafts just waiting to be explored.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner – this year on Sunday, May 12 – Gerber Life pays homage to the women in the family; the mothers raising kids, the grandmothers who raised the mothers, and the daughters who may one day be a mother.
As the saying goes, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” So, let’s do whatever we can to make the moms, grandmas and daughters in our lives feel as special as they deserve to, especially on Mother’s Day.
As children, we’re often told that questioning our mother is a big no-no. And that makes perfect sense because moms have wisdom, insight and understanding that can lead us to a better future. So, listening is often the best advice.
Still, this Mother’s Day, we’re encouraging you to question your mother. Sit down with her, get out a pad and pen (or iPad and stylus), and then ask questions that help you understand who she is. It’s one Mother’s Day idea that is sure to be met with laughter, some great stories and a memory you’ll both cherish for years to come.
