Every year we collect conkers together but we have nothing to do with them so we leave them and they rot away.

This year we decided to think of something to do with them that is to do with the 130 challenge. We thought for a while and decided to collect 130 conkers but that was too easy and ‘if it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you’. Therefore, we decided to make 130 conker bracelets.

At first, we had no hope that we could complete it because we tried and tried but we could not thread them through the string but we did not give up and as we completed more and more bracelets, we found it easier.
