We let Jared pick a few conkers that he wanted to make into Christmas decorations. Then daddy used a thin screw driver to put a hole through, and I popped ribbon through the hole leaving a loop at the top and tying a knot at the bottom so they can hang on the tree in a couple of months. It took me a little while to sort the ribbon and get it right but this took no longer then twenty minuets, I was pretty impressed.
So the conkers were all ready to be painted and covered in glitter, I'm not sure who had the most fun out of three of us. I found it easier to hold the conker from the ribbon to paint them it also made it easier for Jared as one side would get painted then when he rolled it over the paint would rub off but we got there and ended up with some lovely home made decorations.
