If the carrier leaves the delivery with a neighbour or at your local post office, they will leave a card for you telling you where it is.

Where a signature is given by someone other than you or the parcel is left at your local post office, the order will be treated as having been delivered.

Download a FREE Pattern Book Activity Sheet

Reasons to download a Pattern Book activity sheet

Colouring between the lines of repetitive patterns and pictures isn’t just great for keeping little ones occupied and entertained. In fact, there are a whole host of other reasons why giving children a pattern book activity sheet is wonderful for helping your child’s development. Here are just a few.

1.Learning to hold a pen or pencil

Writing is an essential skill to learn before they go to school, but it’s also one that we can all continue to develop even when we are at school – and beyond! Developing the perfect handwriting style starts with the basics; being able to pick up and hold a pen or pencil. Colouring patterns between the lines will encourage children to do just that – all while having fun!

2.Relaxation

Pattern Books especially are great for helping to relax busy minds. With so much going on during the stages of growing up, the repetitive nature of pattern books allows little ones’ brains to switch off and concentrate on just one thing. It’s so effective, many adults are now turning to pattern books too!

3.Patience and focus

The key to colouring in is to focus on keeping within the lines, something that takes time and patience. For children, this is a great way to teach them that not everything has instant gratification – sometimes you have to take your time to get it right.

4. Parent bonding time

Sitting down together and talking about everything and nothing while drawing or colouring in is also quality time spent together. You might just be amazed at how much children open up when they’re relaxed and in a much more informal setting.

We’re giving everyone a page from the popular Galt Toys Pattern Book absolutely FREE, so you can try colouring in patterns yourselves at home.

If you’d like to find out more about the Nail Art Studio kit, Betsy Lou from The Adventures of Betsy Lou, kindly reviewed it for us and here’s what she had to say….

There is no doubt about it, nail polish has surged in popularity in the last few years, and these days any colour goes…but we wanted to share a few interesting facts that might just make you bite your nails!

  1. Nail polish originated in China as early as 3000 BC – ingredients included beeswax, gelatin, egg whites and vegetable dyes.
  2. Essie currently sells a whopping 311 colours of nail polish…and that’s not including base and top coats.
  3. Unopened bottles can last indefinitely, but once the lid is off two years tops!
  4. Some nail polishes have food in them -Nails Inc. have launched a brand of nail polish with kale, and KFC has made edible ‘Finger Lickin’ Good’ Nail Polish that tastes like chicken… yes that is right – chicken!!
  5. It’s not just for your nails – clear polish can be used for fixing a run in your tights and for coating inexpensive jewellery to prevent tarnishing.

Host Your Own Teddy Bears’ Picnic

The weather this weekend is set to be a scorcher up and down the UK, so while the sun is shining, encourage your little ones to dig out your picnic blanket and tea set and invite all their bed time buddies for tea and cake.

Hosting a picnic, with teddy bears and dolls, is a great way for little ones to practice a variety of important social skills while engaging in imaginative play. After all, as a British pastime, the etiquette of hosting the perfect tea party is sure to keep them in good stead for years to come.

Who would you invite to your Teddy Bears’ Picnic?

fun-to-colour-galt

We’re a big fan of bears here at Galt. In fact, our Ted and Tess, plus all their Ambi friends, are hugely popular. This got us thinking about who we’d invite to our teddy bears’ picnic, inspiring us to put together a list of our top teddy invitations:

1)      Paddington Bear

We’d never be short on marmalade sandwiches!

2)      Winnie the Pooh

He’d bring lots of honey to the party.

3)      Rupert Bear

His home in Nutwood is an idyllic place for a picnic, so we’d be hoping he’d return the favour by inviting us for tea!

Which bears would your children like to invite to a teddy bear’s picnic? Let us know and share your picnic photos on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
