Time Capsule Worksheet

Here’s a great way for kids to record their experience during this historical time.

You can print out this worksheet and we will include a fillable worksheet soon! If you can’t print it out, we’ve also listed items below that your children can create on their own and have provided text that can be copied into a document or an email for children to fill out.  Have fun and share your time capsules with us on Facebook, Instagram or email us at community.services@cityofsanrafael.org.

Follow this link for talking about Covid 19 with your children as they engage in this activity.

Here are some of the fun and interesting items you can include: 

  • Some photos from this time 
  • Photos or drawings of who you are living with right now 
  • This is how my face looks right now. Draw a picture of yourself. Happy, sad, goofy, laughing?  
  • A journal of your days 
  • Local newspaper pages or clippings 
  • Any art work you created 
  • Family and/or pet photos 
  • Special memories 
  • Here’s where I’m living right now _________________________________  Here’s a drawing or picture of my house. 
  • Handprints– have everyone in your house put washable paint on their hands and then have them press them onto the same piece of paper. Or, you could trace each of their hands in different colors and have someone trace yours, onto the same piece of paper. They can each sign their names next to their hands. 

Parents, if you can’t print the attached worksheet, copy and paste the text below into a Google or Word document or into an email that kids can fill-in.
