COVID-19 Time Capsule for the Kids

Houston Moms "My 2020 COVID-19 Time Capsule" #houstonmomsblog #houstonmoms #momsaroundhouston

We are in the midst of history during this quarantine. Sometimes it is hard to see the historical significance of what is going on in our world, but with something as significant as the COVID-19 quarantine we know that this will be in the history books. In order to remember all that we did and how hard it was, we want your family to capture your memories in a time capsule. 

We want to make sure we all document everything during this time. Take lots of photos and keep them together {Remember to post on social media for your memories or Time Hop and to physically print your photos}, start a journal of this time filled with your memories, as well as how you were feeling. All of your feelings are valid, the good and the bad, so document those. Encourage everyone in your family to do the same. Print out or cut up some newspaper clippings during this time. Your family has been busy crafting and creating artwork and memories that deserve to be kept forever. Gather all of these things, put them in a special box, and you have a COVID-19 time capsule. 

In order to help, we created these Time Capsule coloring pages to help. Have your kids fill out these pages, including letters to themselves and interview questions for you guys. Write a letter for your kids. Put them in your own family time capsule and enjoy years from now when we have all forgotten how hard it was to stay home for weeks at a time.

Enjoy! We are all in this together, Mama!

Jennifer is a native outside-the-loop’er growing up and living in the Richmond/Rosenberg area. She has a Bachelors in theology and political science from Texas Lutheran University and a Masters in Liberal Arts from Texas Christian University. She and her husband Greg met in 2010 through and fell in love on their first date. They married exactly one year later and have fought lovingly and constantly since. They have two amazingly brilliant girls, Kaitlyn {June 2013} and Elizabeth {June 2015} who Jen stays home with during the day. When Jen is not curled in a little ball rocking back and forth with Peppa Pig on in the background, she can be found crafting with her Silhouette and/or binge watching The Office for the millionth time. Jen has an uncanny ability to be comfortable in almost any situation put in front of her, thanks to growing up in politics and on the debate team. Before having kids of her own, she had the opportunity to help other kids through teaching, youth ministry, and generally being a helpful, kind soul. You can check out more about Jen on IG @themommymiddle.


  1. Will you be updating this to say 2020-21? Would like to use for this school year but it feels outdated with just last years date. Also, teachers have been a little put off by the term “homeschooling” since its been a team effort! Is there any way to possibly change it to “distance learning?” Would love to use this for our class!
