General Conference is THIS weekend! Are you ready? Are your kids ready? We watch/listen to each of the 4 sessions with our children. It's just what we do. And we really try to make it meaningful and FUN so that they look forward to Conference time when they are adults.
Is it just me, or do the printable Conference Packets get better and better each year? I LOVE them! I wish they had these available easily for us when we were children.
We've tried setting up little tents in the living room, bringing little couches/chairs down for the kids to sit in, but have found that a little craft table set up works best for us. They can work on their pages, color, eat snacks and quietly whisper to each other.
I printed out a Nursery Packet and a Junior Primary Packet. Between the two, there were 40 pages of worksheets and I think that's PLENTY! I've found that when I give the kids less at a time to do, the packets last longer and they work harder on each page before flipping to the next one.
I got these little caddy/buckets at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each. They are great for so many things. Snack totes, art supplies, and now...our Conference Kits! And they are portable. We like to listen to one session of Sunday Conference at the church (the other sessions, we watch online), so these will be easy to pack up and bring with us.
I also found these fun little popsicle sticks that I think the kids will have fun coloring and making into puppets :)
