What to do with chestnuts?

From my photo archive. Making cobwebs in September. All you need: chestnuts, kebab skewers and colorful wool. Fun isn't it?
 
Uit m'n fotoarchief. Kastanjes rapen met de kinderen onder de oude, hoge kastanjeboom en spinnenwebben maken. Mooie herinneringen heb ik eraan. Alles wat we nodig hadden: een kastanje, satéprikkers en restjes wol. Leuk hè!



What are you doing with chestnuts?

  2. That's pretty creative! I use to collect chestnuts when I was a kid. The street we lived on had a couple of chestnut trees and they use to fall off occasionally. We would pick them up and crack them open to find a nice and shiny chestnut. To a kid that's priceless!

  3. You don't see chestnuts in Australia very often, sometimes you'll see some being roasted by a street vendor but it's a rare sight.

  4. Cool. I made cobwebs in summer, but this autumn version is really worse to copy. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Nice work! In my childhood we made animals with them or necklaces.

  9. We loved playing 'conkers' to see whose chestnut was the strongest to 'conquer' others!
    This is a fun idea too!
