A few years ago while on vacation, Little J ordered a Spiderman drink. It's really known as a Shirley Temple, but this restaurant made it special for little boys by putting it in a plastic Spiderman cup and serving it with a crazy straw. It's been a family favorite ever since. We often have it at family parties or family fun nights and we're planning on having it for New Year's Eve (before the sparkling cider toast).
The Time Capsule
We're going to make a time capsule this year too. Little J helped me prepare it.
Large can with a lid or shoe box
We started by cutting a piece of construction paper to fit our can. I wrote 2011 with glue and Little J sprinkled it with glitter. Dry flat. Once dry, we used a glue stick to attach it to the can. I did a Word Art circle for the lid that reads, "The X's family time capsule".
One New Year's Eve everyone will put an item in, we'll make a list of individual and family goals, and hopefully get a family picture to include. I also have little wrapped gifts for each person to unwrap next New Year's Eve.
