YW Activity: Time Capsules


We have a really fun Laurel activity planned for this upcoming week that I thought I would share!
The girls wanted to create time capsules that they could use to capture their senior year.
We decided to do a slight spin on the time capsules, by using these cute sandwich bags I found at Target
(I found them in the dollar section and they were 3 for a dollar).

I created some cute cards that the girls could fill out to capture all the things they loved, 
things the hoped for in the future, qualities they wanted to develop, etc.
They will be able to put the cards in the bags when they are finished (which closes with Velcro)
The idea is that they will open up these "capsules" in 5 years and look back at how far they progressed.
We are really excited for the activity and think it's going to be a big hit!
(I think it would it would even be a hit in organizations like achievement days!)
Feel free to share and use any ideas!

  10. Nothing comes up when you click on the link provided. We did a similar activity a while back, the girls wrote letters to their future selves about what their dreams were at this time in their life. I let them choose when they wanted to open it. I remember writing myself a similar letter as a Beehive to be opened when I was graduating from High School. This gives them a little more to go on as far as what to write etc. Thanks, oh and if you can e-mail the docs to dilogan@me.com that would be awesome. Thank you

    1. They were just called sandwich bags. They may not stock them anymore however because I bought them back in January in the dollar section, which I know they change every season!

  25. Just so you know, I've spent the last few weeks preparing multiple lessons and wednesday night activities. I always look on pinterest for cute inspiration or printables, and without even knowing it, I ALWAYS end up back at your blog. You're awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with all of us, and with the young women everywhere!

  31. I know this is totally late and probably a long shot, but would you be willing to update this for 5 years from now, so 2019? :) I'm going to use this for our activity this week (sadly, I can no longer find such cute and inexpensive reusable sandwich sacks) and want to go 5 years, too!

    Thanks!
