This week's Parent Corner Idea (May 31, 2020)

A Time-Capsule Moment

2020 has certainly been unique to say the least. To document some of the events, experiences, and emotions that you and your children have been facing, consider creating a family time capsule to be opened in a year or five years (or whatever you as a family decide). Perhaps your children could write letters to their future selves telling them about the time they had to stay home from school for months on end. Perhaps they could draw pictures showing what the world is currently like: online learning, social distancing, closed stores, line-ups outside of essential stores, masks as the new attireā€¦
