This weekend, our Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, will be joining together in a General Conference. It's a weekend of relaxation and inspiration! I am looking forward to a bit of family fun along with a little rejuvenation for my soul. BUT... it doesn't always work that way for a busy toddler.
Conference snuck up on me this year, but I have been busting my brain to come up with some last-minute projects to keep my son and nephews occupied. Little Man is very visual and loves pictures, so I wanted him to become familiar with the pictures of the leaders of our Church.
If you procrastinated like me and are just now thinking of ideas to keep your kiddos occupied, I've got ya covered! I am also sharing some downloads! Here are 4 ways to keep tots occupied during General Conference:
1. General Conference Bingo First of all, I created these General Conference Bingo boards. Basically, when the speaker delivers his talk, you can mark that person on your board! It only takes 3 in a row to win Bingo in this game, and President Monson is in the center of each board. I am sure we'll use M&M's or some kind of tasty treat to mark our boards.
You can download your own set of 8 General Conference Bingo boards here. Each board is different. Just download, print, mount on some fun scrapbook paper or cardstock, and laminate for durability.
You can download your set of General Conference faces here. I used the same photos for the next couple of projects, but I printed them on regular paper instead of sticker paper! So if you're interested in the next couple projects, you can use the same download.
This will be a great way to learn those new faces! I am so excited for General Conference now... bring on a weekend in jammies!! I hope you can find some kind of activity or tweak one to fit your family! Be sure to let me know if you use one... I'd love to hear about it!
