Conference Countdown – Engaging your children

New General Conference Activity Pack!

Believe me, I know how it goes (I’ve got 6 “childrens” myself), so I’ve been there.

You get all settled in to enjoy conference and then spend all your time preventing the mini-disasters that naturally result from a roomful of kids watching anything other than Sponge Bob Square Pants.

As comical as it is (if you were a bystander, they weren’t your kids, and you didn’t really care what the prophet was trying to tell you), it sure would be nice if they’d “shhhh”, at least just a bit so you could hear.

Even better, if there was some way to get them involved, and help them keep their little (emphasis intended) attentions focused through the drier parts.

Now there is.

Perhaps you’ve seen these circulating in prior conferences, but if you haven’t, there’s an UNOFFICIAL “General Conference Activity Packet” you can download and print for your kids (actually, print an extra copy for yourself, it, uh, helps if they see you do it too… 😉

The packet contains all kinds of great activities that keep them engaged, like…

  • Identifying the prophet and his counselors
  • Coloring the ties of those who talk,
  • Mazes
  • Crossword Puzzles
  • Matching the apostles photo to their name
  • Apostle name matches, and word search
  • Scripture matching
  • Deciphering hidden messages
  • Topic Bingo

And much more.

You can access (download and print) the General Conference Activity Packet direct here.  Also, there’s a good memory matching game with the apostles photos here.

Be sure to visit the author’s blog here (thanks again, and nice work).
