Bonfire Night Colouring Page – Free Download

25

Oct 2016

To celebrate bonfire night, we have created a free colouring download to help get children excited about this special time of year when the skies are filled with bright flashing explosions of colour!

Simply download the fabulous fireworks sheet via the link below, print the page and get colouring! Once downloaded, encourage your children to get artistic by using different materials such as wax crayons, sequins, foil and glitter to add texture, sparkles and bright flashes just like a real fireworks display.

Free Sample Download – Colouring Book – Bonfire

Why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?

Bonfire Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, is a uniquely British event commemorated on November 5th to celebrate the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot devised by explosive expert Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in the early 17th Century. Following the failure of the plot, Parliament declared it a national day of thanksgiving, and the first celebration of it took place in 1606.

The fireworks represent the explosives that were never used by the plotters, and effigies called ‘guys’ representing Fawkes, are tossed on the bonfires.

The only place in the UK that doesn’t celebrate Guy Fawkes Night is his former school St. Peter’s in York, they refuse to burn a ‘guy’ out of respect for one of their own.

Explosive Entertainment…  

For those of you who like to go ‘boom’, we have the perfect kits by Horrible Science which are jam-packed with scientific experiments!

The Explosive Experiments kit is packed with extremely explosive stuff! Children will be able to create and launch a cool rocket, watch a volcano erupt, make fizzy bombs and a lava lamp, plus mix up some seriously slimy snot!

Chemical Chaos contains eight horribly chaotic experiments! Your children will be able to grow creepy stalactites, perform the acid test and make their own chemical cocktail. Plus, learn about awesome atoms and rotten reactions…

Have a fantastic and safe Bonfire Night and remember to follow the Fireworks Code:

  • Keep fireworks in a closed box
  • Only buy fireworks marked BS 7114
  • Follow the instructions on each firework
  • Light all fireworks at arm’s length
  • Stand well back
  • Never go back to a lit firework
  • Never put fireworks in your pocket
  • Never throw fireworks
  • Never give sparklers to a child under five
  • Keep pets indoors

Halloween Tricks and Treats for Children

20

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!

halloween

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.

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.
