Crafty Surprises
If your kids love surprises, crafts and getting their own mail, here's something that combines all three.  The brainchild of Victoria mom Christine Nicholls, Creative Kids at Home is a sort of crafts-by-subscription service.  Six times a year children receive a craft package in the mail, with instructions and materials.  The crafts are themed to a season or holiday and are new each year -- for example, this December's project is a little Christmas table ornament made from foam. (Alternatives are available for families that don't celebrate Christian holidays.)  One of the six packages is an extra- special birthday kit.  Ages 4-11 (Nicholls adapts some kits for older or younger kids).
     A one-year subscription costs $37.40 (includes shipping and taxes; orders sent to BC addresses cost $39.85). Send a cheque or money order to: 287 Ilott Place, Victoria, BC V9C 3V6; phone 1-877-853-6788;
