Painting conkers – great fall activity for kids

After having fun painting stones and pumpkins, it was time for conkers 🌰🌰🌰. Painting conkers is a brilliant autumn activity for children and adults. It’s easy to turn ordinary conkers into amazing creations. We painted at workshops at school, without testing at home. It turned out great, and the most numerous were hedgehogs 🦔🦔🦔 and owls 🦉🦉🦉.

You will need

  • Conckers
  • Acrylic markers – the same as for painting rocks

Painting conkers

Similarly to the pebbles and pumpkins, we used acrylic markers. They have many advantages and work well even for less artistically talented people. They are also perfect for children. We use them with our daughters and have no plans to change them yet.

I was looking for inspiration for painting conkers on Pinterest, which is where I found a hedgehog and an owl, as well as many other patterns.

Workshops at school

Painting conkers is great fun for children, so I highly recommend it as an activity for school workshops 🙂
