To boldly glow...

My son Logan, five, was given some glow-in-the-dark dinosaurs for his bedroom. To stop them from damaging the wall, I painted an old canvas white and superglued the dinosaurs to it before hanging it up. Logan loves seeing them all glowing on his wall at bedtime.

She's got it taped

Rather than getting rid of my old cassettes, I decided to make something with them. I got a square plastic base and stuck an old table lamp to it. Then I glued a layer of cassettes around the edge of the base. I threaded the lamp wire through the cassette hole and attached a plug. Finally I stuck on the remaining cassettes to make my son Mylo, nine, a unique lamp.

It's a frame-up

The cover on my gazebo was torn but it seemed a waste to throw away the frame. Instead I placed it around my pond and wrapped old netting around the top. Now it keeps the heron from eating my fish.
