Everybody agrees that times are tough and of course we all know shopping for mom can have its challenges. So why not mix modern day technology with a little nostalgia from the old Kindergarten days and give mom a special app she will enjoy for a long time and wrap it up in a little craft project. I assure you, she will love you going the extra mile.
With over 500 thousand apps in the App Store alone you are bound to find something for everybody. And come on now! You know you can’t beat the prices. The average app costs less than your average cup of coffee.
On a side note, as our friends at KinderTown have pointed out, it’s Teachers Appreciation Week and this craft would be perfect for that very special teacher in your little one’s life!
OK, now comes the fun part!
After deciding which apps you are going to give mom, assemble the following tools and materials:

This is one of my all time favorite quotes and it’s very fitting for this post.
Kid-Capsule has a comprehensive collection of categories under which you save your memories and events. We believe it helps guide and inspire parents along the way. One such category is “Vivid Imagination” and it’s one I use quite often. Children have amazing minds so it’s important to document them in their life story, it just might help create a spark of inspiration at some point in time, right?
As a bonus, each category is equipped with several sub-categories. In “Vivid Imagination” we have “Drawings”. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to doodle. I’ve often wondered what life and adventures those “masterpieces”, ahem, had in my mind. Now, my little girl won’t have to wonder. Every time she’s enthralled in a drawing, I always ask her about it, snap a picture and save the details in Kid-Capsule.
Here’s a chance to document your little one’s imagination in action. Print this free Ellie fill in the blank coloring page at the bottom of this post on a standard letter sized sheet of paper. Ask them to replace the pencil she usually carries around with whatever they want. Then just sit back and be mesmerized by what they come up with. Don’t forget to save it in your Kid-Capsule!

One of the features we are most excited about in Version 1.2 is the ability to share events with other Kid-Capsule users. Now grandma and grandpa won’t miss a thing. They will have their very own copy of all the priceless moments you have saved. Kid-Capsule will package your event in a file which will be sent via email and can then be imported by the recipient into their own device.
This is how it works:
You will have the option of sharing any type of media via email, as long as you have linked photos and videos to your event.
Tapping photo or video will open the appropriate gallery and prepare the media that will be attached to your message and exported to a special kca file.
Kid-Capsule will package your event in a file which will be sent via email.
After sending your email you will return to your event screen.
When you receive a shared event from a Kid-Capsule user your email will have a kca file attached to it. You will easily recognize it because you will see the Kid-Capsule logo on the attachment while viewing it on your device.
Tapping on the file will prompt you to open it in Kid-Capsule.
Once you open the file, Kid-Capsule will launch and you will be presented with the Event Import Wizard.
The wizard will guide you through the steps to import the event.
Once you finish and the event has been imported, you will be presented with a success message. The imported event will be a replica of the event that the sender has on her device including the child’s profile, the place (together with coordinates if applicable) and the media files that were attached.

I have found it very interesting in speaking to Kid-Capsule users that different people have different ways of using the app.
I will be posting a couple of ways I love to use Kid-Capsule but I also want to hear from you and the great ways you choose to use the app and interpret the different categories. The goal is to inspire other people to keep track of the amazing moments they share with their kids.
