DIY DECORATIONS ENCOURAGE KIDS TO GET CREATIVE Download fun activities from: sellotape.com.au; westcottaus.com.au; kids-first.com.au CHRISTMAS CRAFT MAKE IT Christmas Table Bon Bons This pretty table decoration is fun and simple to make. Roll up three toilet rolls with wrapping paper, leaving space between each roll. Fill the middle roll with treats, secure the end, tie a ribbon in between the gaps, take a pair of scissors and run the blade along the ribbon to create curls. IT'S time to gather the family for fun and festivity. Spending time with kids for creative, confidence-enhancing activities teaches them the true meaning of festivity, says child development expert and director of Kids First Children's Services Sonja Wal- ker. Ms Walker says wrapping presents and creating beautiful decorations benefits chil- dren's learning and development. ''Children's creativity can take many forms, so it doesn't matter if they are colour- matching a ribbon or mastering the task of careful folding.'' She recommends looking online or in your local news agency for inspiring craft activities and affordable equipment. ''A good kid-friendly Christmas resource is Sellotape's Christmas craft sheet, which parents can download from the internet,'' she says PRODUCT HANDMADE POTS GREAT AS GIFTS Oohh containers bring Danish style to your home. Call 1800 811 598. HANDMADE is the new buzzword in the world of home decorating. Keeping this in mind, a new range of indoor containers are not only made from recycled material and natural rubber but each piece is made at home by women living in poor communities on the Sri Lankan coast, and make perfect gifts for the home this festive season. The OOhh Danish-designed indoor con- tainers from the team at Enliven Giftware includes containers, pots and vases in an array of sizes. The white soft-pots provide a gorgeous Scandinavian aesthetic and can be filled with flowers, fruit or collectables. The larger rubber-handled totes in black are ideal as containers for magazines, throws or kids toys. The paper bisque vases and pots, in black and caramel, are given their distinctive patterns by the perforated recycled paper offcuts used to make them. Try filling them with the simplest of foliage, fresh herbs, any green leaves or simple contrast of beautiful white blooms. 2161469 2/10 FREE BATHROOM QUOTES now offered by our recommended licenced renovators FREE QUOTES 9673 6789 Daryl & Kerry Murray N SHOWROOM OPEN 6 DAYS 10am - 4pm N 12 DAY EXPRESS DELIVERY N 12 YEAR WARRANTY N FREE SOFT CLOSE DRAWERS N 100% AUSTRALIAN MADE 50% OFF KITCHEN CABINETS All Kitchen Styles -- Limited Stock A family business with traditional values www.wedokitchens.com.au SHOWROOM: Unit 2 - 516/524 Great Western Hwy, ST MARYS Spring sale now on Ph: 1300 960 047 www.amazingimprovements.com.au " You will be amazed by our Service, Quality & Price!
