When we were at the Weald and Downland Museum we came across a Horse Chesnut tree with a large amount of children underneath it. They were all collecting conkers and we joined them in collecting our stash.
We're yet to have a conker battle, although we will. Some are making there way to Kit's school for their autumn table, and many have been used for making autumn decorations for our flat. Mainly we've been making conker spiderwebs, and teaching anyone who comes to visit us to do the same. I saw the idea on Emma Bradshaw's blog here if you want to know how. They look lovely hanging in the window, and Kit really enjoyed winding the wool, although he needed help.
