Conker Collecting

Conker Collecting

Collect conkers and then help your child to make a hole right through the middle of the conker.

Then allow your child to thread some strong string or even an old shoelace through the middle of each conker. Secure with a large knot at one end to stop the conker falling off.

The first player holds the end of the string allowing their conker to hang as still as they can.The second player then tries to hit the first players conker off the string with their conker.

The first player to break their opponents conker is the winner.

Another craft activity with conkers is to place a conker in a pot of children’s paint until covered and then carefully take it out and roll it around on a piece of paper in a bowl. To create a lovely conker rolling picture.
