I love this time of year for it’s when the conkers come out to play. It takes me back to my childhood and all those wonderful games.

The conkers I collected with the babas this weekend were too small to play the original game, but nevertheless, we had fun collecting them and we made use of them with a simple game of counting.

An afternoon of fun was had, and I’ll be keeping an eye on the trees for the next couple of weeks to see when we’re ready to introduce them to a real game conkers.

  • Find an old egg cartoon
  • Write numbers in each socket and get counting!

Hey presto!
