I think conker collecting is my favourite activity to do with the children. It’s not just fun, it gets us out in the fresh air, it’s easy and it’s free! The children, whatever their age, all love it too.
We are extremely lucky that we have a beautiful horse chestnut tree just seconds from our door so on our way to school and back each day collecting conkers is a highlight of our day. We also have some other favourite spots to collect them too.
