General Conference Activity for Kids

General Conference Activity 2

The LDS General Conference is coming up and I am so excited! General Conference weekends are some of my favorite weekends of the year. (Who doesn’t love the chance to go to church in your PJs?) We started a small tradition for the Sunday sessions of conference where we invite our friends over and we watch the 1st session, have a yummy brunch with cinnamon rolls and a fruit platter, then watch the second session. This year I thought it would be fun to print some activities to help the kids pay attention and keep busy. Problem is all the printable activities I saw were too mature for my young kids- word searches, crossword puzzles etc.  just weren”t going to cut it, so I made my own! You are welcome to use them too if you’d like!

Here is what each page looks like:

Directions:
Download the General Conference Activities PDF HERE
-Print the document
-Cut each page in half
– Add a staple to the corner

…and you’re done!

Feel free to print them off  as many times as you’d like, but please do not sell them for profit or claim them as your own.

 Have Fun!!!

    This is very cute and I might have to do something similar for our Easter services this weekend… thanks for the great idea!

  2. Natasha says

    Wow!!!! This is really cool!!! But we have only one girl in our Branch who can write and she never comes for General Conference =)))) Others are too young ))) But the idea is really great!!! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Closet Crafter says

    Such a fun packet! I'm going to file this one away until my little one gets a little bigger. Maybe this year I will just print one out for me:) Thanks for featuring me on your side bar, what an honor!

  4. Andrea says

    Growing up coloring during conference was part of the tradition. I love that your book will help my little ones pay attention while they color. The tie idea is cute! And I may just print off a spare copy for me so I can color the flowers while I listen. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Jennifer @ The Craft House says

    Is it seriously time for that already? I could have sworn last year's just ended. XD

  6. Amy C's says

    FANTASTIC! I can't tell you how excited I am to use these this weekend. Thanks you so very much!
    (BTW-I love,love,love your blog!)

  7. Crystal says

    Thanks! I am going to share your packet along with the other two on my blog. (savvymomsaves.blogspot.com)

  8. Moran Family says

    I am going to post the link on facebook for all my friends that dare to go to conference in the chapel (I will be watching it on the computer with my one and three year olds) Oh how I miss BYU TV!

  9. Beth says

    Wish I didn't have to pay for a subscription to that site in order to download or print because it looks really cool.

  10. Steph @ somewhatsimple says

    Beth, you shouldn't have to subscribe to that site- the download should be completely free. Is it asking you to pay something because if so, I will send you the file. I want it available to anyone who wants it!

    Let me know if you have problems with it…

  11. Bartlett Boys + Mommy says

    What a cute activity! Thank you for sharing! I am not able to download it either…without subscribing to the site. Am I doing something wrong??? Thanks again!

  12. Browns says

    I would love a copy of this as well but it won't let me download without subscribing. I know from other site that scribd starts charging to download older documents they consier and archive.

    If you can send me the file I would SO appreciate it!

  13. Steph @ somewhatsimple says

    Ok, I just added the pages as images to this post, so you should all have access to them without having to subscribe to scribd!

  14. Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com says

    Very cute Steph. I added your conference packet link to my post and it will publish in about an hour. So fun!!!

    Thanks for sharing. I love this for the younger kids. I just copied and pasted into word (horizontal layout), resized it a little and printed. Perfect. Ready for tomorrow. Thanks. Victoria, http://www.obSEUSSed.com

  16. says

    I am not able to print these. I have young children and this would be perfect for them. Everything else I have found is too mature for them. Could you please send it to me so that I can have it for this weekend!
    Thank you!

  17. says

    So cute! I love how you alternate coloring activities (tie, flowers) with talk content activities (3 things Pres. Monson said). Maybe it’ll get the kids to look AND listen to the Conference.

  18. Sarah Allred says

    I am having trouble printing too. It’s asking me to subscribe, and I’m having trouble being able to print them when I enlarge them. Help! These are FABULOUS :) BRILLIANT work!
    THANKS

  19. Jennifer Tzoumas says

    I too would love to receive the file, as I’m not able to download or print the file either. Thanks so much for the hard work YOU put into this so that WE may benefit! I’m hoping this may be the first year I may be able to actually see/hear conference live rather than recorded and watched later!

  20. Collette says

    Thanks for doing this…makes it easier for the rest of us. It’s a super cute idea and I know my girls are going to love it! Usually our primary sends them home with something but that didn’t end up happening this Conference so I just printed yours off. Thanks again and Happy Conference!!!

  21. says

    This is such a cute packet. I love that I can cut the pages in half so I don’t use as much paper. I’ll be adding this to the list of Conference activities I’m posting on my blog. This is a fabulous resource.

  22. Jennifer says

    OH Noo I just find your blog, this is wonderful! thank you so much for share! greetings from Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

  23. Connie says

    This is one of the BEST packets I’ve seen for younger kids. So many of these packets are DISTRACTING from conference. This is great because it encourages them to pay attention and actually learn something! Thank you!!

  24. Sheryl says

    Thank you for your sharing your creativity and craftiness with us! This is very generous of yoU!

  25. sue yocum says

    Thank you for sharing your talents and creativity with the rest of us. My kids will love this–so inspired, simple and perfect. Thank you!
