April 2012 General Conference Activity and Packets!

{Update: Click HERE to view/download the newest, latest and greatest Conference Packet. Enjoy!}

I know I’ve been a big slacker in not posting lately, but I feel I have a valid excuse: I’M PREPARING TO GIVE BIRTH HERE, PEOPLE! 😀 Actually, I guess my excuse would be a lot more valid if I had already given birth and was trying to take care of a newborn. But if you really knew me, you’d know that the pre-birth preparations are every bit as crazy as post-birth life. So anyway, posts are obviously going to be rather sparse from my end for the next little while (and by ‘little while’ I mean however long it takes for me to reach the non-comatose state of parenthood again). 🙂

However, I have not forgotten that we’ve got General Conference coming up right around the corner (March 31st and April 1st) and I had another fun idea I wanted to share that takes right after the Fall Conference Tree activity I did for last October’s Conference. This one is basically the same thing, except instead of a fall tree, we’re going to grow a ‘Conference Spring Garden’ with lots of beautiful springtime flowers. 🙂 The basic concept is that you’ll set up a ‘garden area’ on one of your walls, and then you use the Conference flower tops (provided in the download below) to take notes about the topics of the talks in General Conference. Color the flowers, tape them up in your garden, and then apply the talks in your family life as you pick the flowers from the garden. (It’s explained in detail in the download.) I can’t wait to see my wall plastered with a paper flower garden. 🙂

So anyway, here are the downloads for that (one for Nursery/Sunbeam age and one for Primary age children), along with my Spring Conference Packets from last year. They all apply pretty much the same (except that the cover page says ‘2011’… but with the computer issues I’ve been having lately, I’m not feeling motivated to spend 3 hours to make a change for just that. :)) I hope you enjoy the activity, the packets, and most importantly that you enjoy General Conference!!

    Thank you so much for these wonderful ideas and packets. These are by far my very favorite. I’m printing right now for my three older kids (the 7 mo. old is a little young!) I have a preschool blog and will probably provide a link to your ideas here if I can get a post together 🙂 Thank you for all your hard work, my family is going to enjoy these during conference!

      I’m glad y’all are enjoying the packets. And yes, I’m aware of the 2011 date (although I hadn’t noticed the Jospeh Smith error) 🙂 and I chose to leave it intentionally because my computer is giving me a hard time right now so these are actually from last year… hence the 2011 date. Sorry about that 🙂 Hope you enjoy it anyway. 🙂

    These are great. Just wanted to let you know that on your Junior Primary packet on the bingo page, you accidentally put Jospeh Smith instead of Joseph Smith. Just thought you may want to correct that. Thanks again for all your creativity and the hard work you put into these. 🙂

    Thank you for putting these packets together! I have 5 children ranging in age from 7 to 18, so it was wonderful to have a packet for all of their different interest levels. I even printed some pages off for my husband and I to use! It really is wonderful, thank you!

    Just found this site. The BEST packets I’ve ever found. I spend forever each conference trying to put packets together for my kids. Found this site the first time I googled. Had all I wanted and more. Printed. 20 minutes later I’m done!!!

    Thanks for your work amidst the business of taking care of your family.
