Conkers and Bridges

At last there are conkers lying around so we finally did our annual conker championship.  After some thorough tution in gameplay (and safety!) from Baaloo, battle royale commenced.  Some of the conkers lasted a long time, except Skip’s which Baaloo shattered in 3 goes. Later, bridge-building with art straws.  Building a bridge with 12 straws long enough to get a toy car over the chasm.  Some designs were very novel but not very practical 🙂
