TERRACOTTA TREATS SMART IDEAS THIS Christmas, why not look to everyday household items for gift inspiration? Terracotta pots can make unique gifts or gift holders. Although these containers are usually used to hold plants, a decorated terracotta pot can make a quirky addition to a plain shelf, desk or table. Here are a few creative ideas: Encourage the kids to get involved and paint the pots in their favourite designs. Use the pots to store homemade goodies or gifts -- fill with spices and herbs, sweet treats, hand-made candles or soaps. Build a unique terra-Christmas tree. Stack a range of pots upside down from largest to smallest, then glue together and paint a vibrant green. Make terracotta patio lights using basic items and Dremel tools. Look under 'how to' on dremel.com for full instructions. Make a bird bath using a pot and saucer. Flip the pot upside down to serve as base, sit the saucer on top and fill with water. SOME FESTIVE FUN TAP INTO CHILDREN'S EXCITEMENT CHRISTMAS CRAFT CHILDREN are curious during the festive season. Keep them excited by involving them in some fun and simple activities. Here are a few tips from organising expert Nina Rosace's book, Christmas Sorted. Keep a Christmas craft box. Place all your craft items here. Search newspapers, maga- zines or the internet for free activities. Children learn through play so make craft work fun and always supervise. Make a Personalised Christmas placemat: Cut Christmas images from old Christmas cards; take a large sheet of thick white card and creatively write your name in the centre; glue images on to the white card around your name; once glue dries, protect and create placement by covering the entire sheet with clear adhesive paper. Run a ruler over it to slowly release air bubbles. They can also be laminated. Christmas Sorted has an illustrated, step- by-step collection of practical ideas to help you deal with all aspects of Christmas. RRP $9.95. Is mould & mildew taking over?
