time capsules . . .

It's so cute to see what little treasures kids collect on their summer vacations.  This project is a great way to organize and save their memories.

 I started with photos of my two favorite little globe trotters taken during their trips and printed on regular copy paper.

 These containers were perfect, but you could use big empty vitamin bottles, or old cookie tins.  Just look around your house and you'll be sure to find something.

 Measure it, 

 cut a strip of cute paper then glue the photo on.

 Glue the paper right onto the container.

 I used stickers to record the date and location of the vacation.

It's a great visual reminder of how much fun they had.

 Be creative and capture their personalities.

 It's so much fun to see all the souvenirs.

 Great for sentimental storage.

How amazing would it be to start your kids with a collection of their childhood summer memories?

Happy travels.
