What are Conkers?


That is what my 7 year old said to me when I told him I’d collected some Conkers for him and his sister. What are Conkers? I’ve failed as a parent haven’t I? 

I know it’s not the same now as when I was a child and you aren’t allowed to take them into school with you anymore for endless Conkers battles. And it looks like it’s a part of childhood I haven’t thought about passing on to them.

I will be now…. Once I work out how I’m going to drill a hole, keep all my fingers and thread the string through it. I might need to google the old how to make your Conkers harder tricks because all I can remember is something about vinegar.
