**UPDATE: Check out the super fun, ALL NEW ‘Conference Catastrophe’ Activity Packet available over on my new website: Simply JAD !**
Howdy, howdy my friends! I’m so excited to finally have another Conference activity packet done to share with y’all!! This is a fun one! Well… they’re all fun. But I feel like even I would enjoy doing this one. 😝 I may have to print one out for myself. 😂
General Conference is such a special opportunity, twice a year, to listen to living prophets! Words and counsel specifically for our day, from men and women who are authorized by the Lord to speak on His behalf. What an amazing gift. That being said, with little ones and their short attention spans, it can be hard to get our hearts fully in tune if we are constantly having to find things for the littles to do. (Hey… 2 hours, x4 sessions… that’s a WHOLE LOT to expect of a wee one!)
Enter the Ultimate General Conference Packet (3!!)! It’s here to SAVE THE DAY! (You have to say that in a superhero voice.) Y’all… so much love has gone into this packet. I even got my oldest daughter involved in the planning action. (She’s got a fun, creative mind.) ☺️ And, as always, it is FULL of fun activities related to Conference and the Gospel, from A-Z!
You can DOWNLOAD IT HERE. But be patient. It’s a really big file. 😂
Now, here’s my disclaimer… this packet is a wee bit more geared toward the older children. My oldest kids are 12 and 10, and I wanted them to still be able to enjoy this, without it feeling too ‘simple’. And I wanted it to engage their minds a little more in conference as well, so there are occasional questions to ponder and answer based on what they’re hearing in Conference, etc. So if you’ve only got younger kids, some of the pages may be a bit above their understanding. But there’s still plenty that they can enjoy as well… you’ll just perhaps want to sort through the pages first and give them the ones that they won’t need constant assistance with. (Maybe save those for between sessions! 😉)
But if TOO much of it is above your kiddos heads, the previous 2 packets (HERE and HERE) are also good options. AND I’m also working on a different fun activity for the younger kiddos that I will have available by the April conference. So check back then!
Anyhow… I hope your little ones enjoy this newest edition of the Ultimate General Conference packet! Don’t forget to grab some tasty treats and snacks (we will definitely be baking up our traditional Conference cinnamon rolls), and you’re all set to enjoy an inspiring weekend. 😊
P.S. If you need extra BINGO card pages (pg “W” of the packet) so that multiple kids can play against each other, you can download a set of 6 more cards here:
P.S.S. The 2019 October General Conference is Saturday and Sunday, October 5-6. Sessions are at 10am and 2pm MST on each day (that’s 11am and 3pm CST for us Texans 😉). And if you’d like to tune in online, you can watch it HERE!
And one last note… you can find a bunch of other fun conference ideas by clicking the ‘General Conference’ tag in the sidebar. Any updates will always be available through that route as well. 😉
