Currently I have conkers in pots, conkers in pockets in fact I have conkers anywhere imaginable!
I get as excited as the kids when I spot the first lot hitting the ground and we gather them up by the bucket load.
Unfortunately playing conkers at school has been banned for many years now and I just get stuck with he little beauties gathering dust.
Last year we did some autumnal painting with them which was great fun but I wanted to try something a little different this year.
We’ve have put wiggley eyes on them to create little people which was fun, but my favourite has been these conker snails.
All I did was to get the kids to take small amounts of plasticine and roll into a long sausage shape, place the conker near to the end of the sausage leaving a little for the tail(not sure that is the correct term). Then finally create the tentacles by splitting and moulding into shape at the top.
