So many changes occur over the course of a child’s school year. Growth in height, knowledge and a change in tastes and preferences can always be counted upon. During summer or when preparing for the back to school grove, take on this fun craft and create a back to school Time Capsule.
- Coffee Can or Storage Jar or Box
