Halloween Tricks and Treats for Children


Oct 2016

You know you can’t go wrong with Halloween foods for children when there are sweets involved. Though they may round up plenty of goodies during their trick-or-treating, it’s great to have some home-made treats. Try out some of these quick, easy and tasty suggestions of Halloween tricks and treats for children by the Mums and Dads at Galt Toys!


Spider cupcakes – using the cupcake as the body, drizzle black icing on a plate to give the appearance of spider legs and red icing sugar to make a little red hourglass on the cupcake for a black widow. Icing can also make spider webs, ghosts or use stencils to make some intricate designs.

“Mummys” in a blanket. Rather like a Pig in Blanket but instead of wrapping the dough around the entire hot dog, wrap it like a strip of cloth winding around to create a mummy effect. Leave a slit of dog exposed and use two mustard or ketchup dots for eyes.

Mini “Mummy” Pizzas – arrange the shredded cheese to look like strips of bandages with an “opening” at the eyes. Once the pizzas are cooked, or before they are done, pop a couple of slivers of olives for eyeballs.

Get The Party Started with Gruesome Games

No party would be complete without gruesome games, scary costumes and, for the older children (and brave parents!) ghost story telling. Check out some of the suitably spine-tingling games and toys we have to help get your party into full swing!bm9pehrq

Beastly Body Bits – £9.99

300-piece jigsaw puzzle featuring Horrible scenes of the human body with famously mad scientist, Baron Frankenstein.


Slippery Slime – £5.99

Make one large eyeball and three small glow-in-the-dark eyeballs – squigetastic!


Bouncy Eyeballs – £5.99


Grow A Garden Zombies – £6.99

Everything you need to grow a mini lawn. Just add water and watch your grass grow. Add the coloured plastic pieces to create a fun garden.

Top Tips for Planning a Children’s Birthday Party


Oct 2016

For some parents planning a children’s birthday party will be a piece of cake (excuse the pun!), but many find the party planning process a little bit stressful and even a chore. Big or small, planning a party that will suit your child’s age and character will guarantee that they have a whale of a time. The party also needs to fit with your style and budget, so we’ve put together five quick tips from the Mums and Dads at Galt Toys to help you along the way.


1. Sending Invitations

This is almost as challenging as deciding who to invite to a wedding! Try to be considerate of children’s feelings. If you can’t invite the entire class, don’t hand out invitations at school. If you can only invite a few close friends, send the invitations by post or email.

2. Catering for Everyone

Make sure there’s enough buffet food for everyone, tea and coffee for the adults, and always have extra party bags or sweets to hand at the end of the party just in case!

3. Food & Drink

No need to go wild here. Ham, cheese or jam sandwiches and a variety of crisps plus the usual party food staples like sausage rolls, pizza slices, chicken nuggets, chocolate fingers, garlic bread etc will do just fine. Don’t over cater as children are often too excited to eat much. Better to serve small portions to younger children rather than letting them help themselves to avoid spills. Have bin liners and a dustpan close by.shutterstock_201935944

4. Bouncy Castle or Sleepover?

Plan a variety of activities. Active games such as relay races, musical chairs, or Simon Says, help kids get to know one another. At the end of the party give the children activity packs, or art and craft activities to do if you want to avoid sending riled-up party guests home to their parents. Older children often like a sleepover party. If it’s something you are happy to supervise (bearing in mind that you probably won’t get much sleep) it can be a wonderful bonding experience for children and one that they’ll remember for years.

5. Perfect Timing

Toddlers are at their best in the morning or early afternoon (this also means you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to organise everything). For older children, mid to late afternoon start gives them time to recover from any sports activities they may have and parents can enjoy a few hours off!

100 years of British Summer Time – When do the clocks go back?


Oct 2016

Every year many of us find ourselves confused about which way the clocks will be going, but remember ‘Spring forward, fall back’. So in a matter of weeks you’ll be waving goodbye to British Summer Time when the clocks go back by an hour on October 30th.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first time that British clocks were turned back to GMT after BST. The mornings should be lighter and the evenings darker, despite this having happened for a century, and many electronic devices altering the time automatically, there will always be one person you know who won’t remember!


Daylight Saving: Whose idea was it?

That would be… William Willett who introduced the idea of British Summer Time in 1907. He wanted to prevent people from wasting valuable hours of light during summer mornings, and published a paper ‘The Waste of Daylight’ in a bid to get people out of bed earlier. He spent his life trying to convince people it was a good idea, but sadly died before Germany adopted the idea on April 20th 1916, with Britain following suit a month later on May 21st.

The Importance of Telling the Time

Learning to tell the time is an important concept in the early childhood years, and can be tricky business. Government guidelines state that all children aged four to five should be able to read analog clocks, and by age five to six they should understand half and quarter hours.

When starting to teach children the time on an analog clock it’s important to have a model to show them, so they can see the numbers and hands clearly and can count the minutes. You can either make your own or purchase one.

Our new Tell the Time Set is a fun approach, which comes with a clock face with moveable arms and a step by step guide with tips and game ideas, that will help children to learn how to tell, measure and understand the time.


You can start by showing examples on the clock and then have them identify the hour and minute hands. Once they know the difference between the two, they can practice identifying the time to the hour, half hour, quarter hour, and eventually to the minute. Like the majority of learning it is best to reinforce it with everyday situations, such as asking them what time their favourite TV programme starts, or what time they get up in the morning and go to school.

If you have any ‘telling the time’ tips, we’d love to hear them in the comments section below!
