Expressive Arts Time Capsule: My Message to the Future
My Message to the Future is an expressive arts time capsule in the form of dynamic coloring sheets that can be printed out and drawn directly on or to serve as inspiration for a time capsule of your child's own design. I designed it as a gentle and creative way for students to make a bit of meaning out of our current difficulties.
The six page packet focuses on fun and easy dimensions of the self as openings to build awareness, resilience, and connection. A collection of creative prompts with drawings to spark your kiddo's imagination so they can make it their own.
A creative SEL resource ideal for parents or educators for students learning remotely. The Time Capsule can be introduced as a week-long project with one page completed per day or supplemented as a month long unit with one page shared per week. Both approaches have been enjoyable for students in the digital classroom and at home. Ideal for 3rd- 6th grade with accomodations easily being made for one year below or above depending on context presented.
Please take this and make it your own. Many students have used these as "seed ideas" that generated other creative projects for their unique time capsule.
What will their message to the future be? And yours?
