Collecting Conkers


We were very lucky to have another beautiful autumn day today, so Ethan and I went to the park to collect conkers (horse chestnuts).  It's a great way to keep Ethan busy outside, by giving him a task.  A great way to learn about different natural materials as part of his Knowledge and Understanding of the World.

At first he didn't know what conkers were, but it didn't take him long to catch on and get really into it.  Soon he was running around, searching everywhere for 'more ponkers'!  He ended up with quite the collection, now we just have to figure out what to do with them all!
