We understand during Autumn and Winter months it can be harder to get out and keep active due to the colder weather. However, one activity that never gets old during Autumn is conker picking!
We all remember conker picking as kids with the leaves falling around us. This fun activity is perfect for exciting children about the change of seasons and the events that Autumn holds! Find your nearest woodland filled with conker tree’s and arrange a family walk in the crisp air.
How to Bonkers for Conkers:
Once you have collected your conkers, team them with our Halloween decorations kit or the 101 things kit from abeec and use the string to steady your conker on. With 2 players, hit the conkers against one another’s until there is only one player left – you win!
Stock Up On Your Plush Toys
At abeec we understand that night-time routines are essential towards ensuring happiness in children and cognitive development. We also acknowledge that certain Autumnal calendar events such as the clocks going forward can act as a barrier to children sleeping soundly. Therefore, we have created a variety of light up plush toys which add enjoyment to children’s bedtime routines.
The plush night lights are a perfect way to engage children with a familiar and comforting bedtime routine. The LED lights included ensure the night light provides the perfect amount of visibility in the dark and the soft, cuddly material ensures children can use this as their favourite bedtime teddy bear.
