I love Autumn – hmmmm have I said that before??!
Last Friday had been such a beautiful sunny and warm day that after we had eaten our early tea, I suggested that we went to the park on a conker hunt. It forecast rain the next day so I thought that we should go there and then – spur of the moment – so as to collect them in the dry.
When we arrived no one else was there and there were soooooo many conkers on the ground. Some were already out of their prickly case and were lying all shiney, brown and new on the green grass. Others were still hidden inside their shells waiting to be opened by eager little fingers, a brand spanking new conker never before seen by anyone else. How magial is that?We ended up collecting 130 which Burton and Daddy counted up the following morning over breakfastThe question is, what do you do with that many conkers?
I have heard that spiders do not like them so I guess I could cover the house in them!!
Maybe you could use them to cook with and make food for Mummy in your play kitchen? Or you could use a couple and have a game of conkers! We showed the boys how to play this the other night – in a safe way of course! Burton got the hang of it but Jenson…..well he tried bless him!
And that is another tick off the National Trust’s 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 3/4
