General Conference Ideas...

Image
This is a re-post from March, with updated packet information.
We've had a lot of you ask if we have any ideas to keep your kids interested {busy} during General Conference this weekend... so we've compiled a few ideas from around the blog world for you.  
#1 - CONFERENCE TREAT BUCKETS - by Brown Paper Packages


Basically the idea is to get some buckets, label them with words you want your kids to listen for, and let them pick a treat when they hear that word spoken in one of the talks!  Awesome, huh?
Don't have time or want to spend money on buckets and vinyl?   Use mason jars and print out words from your computer. (be cute & colorful to see the candies) Have your kids help you color your labels and tape them on! Also, my little ones can't read yet - so I will probably find pictures of the temple, the scriptures, etc. for our treat buckets!  (If time permits, I will post the pictures I find so you can use them too!)
#2 - SET UP YOUR TENTS!  

Just as the people gathered to …

Kid Friendly Jack-O-Lantern Cookies

This is the CUTEST idea EVER!  I found it over at "Bee in our Bonnet" and couldn't resist sharing with you.  I am definitely going to add this to my "to-do-this-October" list.

Check out the full instructions here.

So the basic steps are:
1.  Make sugar cookie dough
2.  Cut out dough into shapes of eyes, nose, mouth, etc - the way you would a real pumpkin!
3.  Bake and and let cool.
4.  Decorate with frosting and let dry.
5.  Grab some orange dessert plates (which will be your "pumpkin") and let the kids arrange and re-arrange their jack-o-lantern faces!




GENIUS!  I also LOVE the idea of putting all the decorated pieces into a jar to "gift" to friends or neighbors. Check out their full post for details on giving this darling idea away!
