Children at Bright Horizons Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool have been using conkers to create their own pictures, in an activity part of the organisation’s Growing Artists enhancement.

The children recently headed outdoors to collect their own conkers and used them to paint pictures once they returned to the nursery.

“We asked the children to choose their own colours to paint and were delighted with what they produced using the conkers,” said Nikki Paine, nursery manager.  

Bright Horizons’ Growing Artists enhancement aims to encourage creativity in art.
