Write your child’s name on the box label and paste on top of the box. Decide when you would like to open the box, maybe a year from now.
Chart your child’s growth - Using the colour paper, trace out your child’s two hands and/or feet. Cut out the handprint / footprint and place in the box. With the yarn provided, measure your child’s height and mark or cut the yarn and place it in the box. The next time you open the box, you will be amazed by how much your child has grown!
Gather moments from the past, and present - Identify the items that carry sentimental value and place in the box. It could be a tourist map, flight or train tickets, or a recent family photo, birthday cards, old CD covers, concert ticket stubs, your favourite book, and share the happy memories!
We have also provided question cards with some suggested questions that your child can fill in.
Last, you may wish to paint the box red just like in the 小红箱 book!
