General Conference Ideas...

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 hear King Benjamin...
Think of how much fun little ones would have listening to the Prophet in their very own tent.
Whether you make one out of blankets and chairs, or you have a real tent to set up - 
Deck it out with pillows, notepads, snacks, etc. and let the kiddos play make believe!

#3-  DOWNLOAD A CONFERENCE PACKET

We love Sugardoodle.net!  They make it so easy to plan lessons, activities and so much more.  Click on the links below to download a packet specific for the ages of your kids.  Or check out their entire collection of conference ideas here.

YOUTH PACKET  - for ages 8-12 and up.  Setting goals, taking notes, facts about the Apostles, etc.

IDEAS FOR TOTS  from Oopsey Daisy.  Lots of ideas to keep toddlers busy!

NOTE PAGE FOR ADULTS from Holy Handouts.  A great printable to put into a binder, and keep all your General Conference notes together throughout the years! 

JUNIOR PRIMARY AGED PACKET - coloring, dot to dots, search for hidden pictures, etc.  Love this one!


Well, there you go!  Should be enough to get you started at least!  Some of the packets are up to 16 pages long... and if you come into the store, we can print out certain pages for you.  A lot of primary presidencies have come in and shortened their packets to print one for each of their primary kids.
