So it’s that time of year again, we’re a week in and the summer holidays are in full swing. Children everywhere are running wild with excitement while parents are wondering how on earth to keep them entertained for the next six weeks. So far you’ve been to the seaside, paid a visit to grandma and had a few play dates with other mums and children in the park…and now you’re wondering what to do next?
Well here at Galt Toys we have plenty of creative and engaging activities to keep your little ones out of trouble, entertained and their brains ticking over until they go back to school. We can’t promise they won’t get a bit messy – but here’s just a few of our favourites to keep boys, girls and grownups amused this summer.
Create your own friendship bracelets – children just love them! Our cool charm bracelet kit is perfect for sharing with friends, with its cool coloured beads and silver charms featuring a poodle, strawberry and mobile phone it will undoubtedly add a little sparkle this summer.
If you children love construction, this is the toy for you – Jaw Bones the 100 piece box set comes with a 20 page ideas booklet for loads of building inspiration and will keep the kiddies entertained for hours. The Buildable Art System with construction pieces that swivel, ratchet and snap together in countless ways. The possibilities for new and unique creations are limited only by the imagination. (Hard hat optional)
Everybody loves a tea party – why not create your own mad hatters version for an afternoon treat? - You’ll have to paint the tea set first though! You can get creative in the morning and go as bonkers as you like with the decoration – dot, strips and swirls. Then enjoy your efforts with an afternoon tea party. (Cake is definitely not optional!)
To keep those little brains engaged, our Horrible Science kits will provide hours of adventure for inquisitive minds and depending on which one you choose, they will be moulding slimy slugs, making water fuelled rockets and bouncing eyeballs in the garden and that’s just for starters.
Here is one for the whole family – pick your favourite bug or animal from our new grow-a-heads range then keep them fed and watered to see who’s can grow the longest hair over the summer. The fun never stops as once you’ve created wacky hair dos for your heads, give then a crew-cut and watch them grow all over again!
If after all this the little ones are still not tired, get them running around the garden in sync with the Olympics – they’ll be pooped and ready for bed in no time! As always, we’d love for you to share your Galt moments with us by uploading pictures to our facebook page or tweet us at @GaltToys.
