Workshops on the Wharf - Matariki: Time Capsules

What a wonderful wonderful way to start of the celebration of Matariki (Maori New Year).

Tanya ran the workshop making time capsules which I thought was a great idea!

What you will need:
  • Pieces of card, preferably coloured with printed 'slits' on them for cutting.
  • Stickers
  • Markers and pens for colouring
  • Printed stickers with the 'Do not open until 10th June 2013" on them, (or whatever the date is for the next Maori New Year).
  • Tape
So basically you get your sheet of card, and draw things that you love 'today', favourite movies, items of clothing, friends, and things that you think are important for your time today.

Then select some stickers that you love and stick them onto it on both sides.   Once complete, cut along the slits, roll up into a tube, and use the 'dated sticker' to "seal" the tube.  Then fold the end tabs (that have been formed by the slits), and use tape to seal the ends.  There you have it!

Now you have to wait until next year to open it!
