The Family Fun Box will become a very important item in your home once you introduce this family tradition. The box is symbolic of how your family interacts and it represents the fact that every voice is heard and every vote counts. The Family Fun Box is where everyone stores his or her own idea of “Family Fun” on slips of paper (we recommend using our Family Fun Pad). One night a week (perhaps Friday night during dinner) someone picks out one slip of paper and announces which activity the family will enjoy together during the weekend.
Dimensions: 4.25″ x 4.25″ x 3″

This Family Values Box is the perfect place to keep everything you need to honor your children when you see those behaviors that exhibit your family values.

We all remember the big events–the exciting trips, the new baby, the big fish that got away–but sometimes we forget the smaller snapshots of family life. The routines that shape our days, the school papers, the size of our child’s hand, the family’s favorite foods…All these take on a special significance when examined twelve months later. A time capsule captures these priceless details.
Hide the capsule in the house, garage, or attic. You and your family can decide when it should be retrieved. Given a child’s rate of development, even a few months may be long enough. Can you imagine your children’s delight at seeing how they used to write, or how small they were, or how silly they were?
Here is the perfect box to hold all the tiny and precious items from your baby’s first years: the hospital bracelet, a silver spoon, or a lock of hair from your child’s first haircut. The Treasure Box comes with three ivory organza bags for those tiny items that are easily misplaced.
Measures 6″ x 3.5″ x 3″.
