Several years ago when my children were children (and not adults – how did that happen so fast?!) we planted some conkers in plant pots. Once we had kept the squirrels at bay they began to grow and are now abour six feet tall. They are still in pots as horse chestnut trees can become very large if planted direct into the garden and our garden isn’t big enough. Here’s a photo of one of our trees.

Bible people to make…
where to find the knitting pattern to make Bible peopleI like to use a story bag at toddler group story time. I find it holds the interest of the children and adults better than a picture. My mum is a great knitter and made some Bible characters for me. If you are able to have a go at making some then the pattern is available from http://www.alandart.co.uk . They are a good size and can be adapted by adding different clothes. Happy knitting 🙂 and even happier storytelling
