The Ultimate General Conference Activity Packet

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 |  by

Oh goodness do I have a treat for all the LDS parents out there. I’m gonna keep this short and sweet cuz I’m brain fried from staring at my computer screen for so long… but I have created a great little packet for the youngins to keep their attention a little more focused and their bodies a little less wiggly during General Conference. (Can you believe that’s already here again??) I call it the ULTIMATE packet because this bad boy is HUGE. 35 pages huge. Ya. (Did I mention I’ve been staring at my screen for a little while??)

Ultimate LDS General Conference Packet

This packet is FULL of activities that touch on different Gospel topics (and I tried to keep them related to Conference as well) from A all the way to Z! And yes… I know there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, but some of the activities take up two pages, so yes… this got a bit on the long side. But that’s good! Because there are FOUR sessions of Conference and we don’t want the kiddos running out of things to do in the middle of the first session, right??

Okay, well, you know the drill. Download, print, give it to the munchkins with a bunch of crayons, scissors, glue, and snacks (for goodness sakes, DON’T forget the snacks). Dress it up, dress it down, make it as fun and fancy as you like, or just chuck it at them as you turn on Conference (okay… please don’t actually CHUCK it at them) :) and hopefully you’ll be set to enjoy a few peaceful moments of Conference yourself. :)

Side Note: This packet has been created with the Primary Age youth in mind (roughly age 5-12). That’s not to say that a 3 or 4 year old couldn’t enjoy a lot of it (I’m certainly going to be trying to get my 4 year old to stay busy with it), but they will probably need a lot more coaching and assistance. Just FYI. They can definitely do the ‘poking’ part, which I think more than anything they would have fun with, but just be sure they take care with whatever poking device you give them. I will NOT be held responsible if your 4 year old leaves pins in your carpet that your 11 month old crawls over! (Not saying that happened in my house or anything…) :)

But truly, I hope this will help aid in allowing the Spirit to be in your homes as you listen to Conference. Try to help your children understand what they are hearing and feeling as they listen and work on the packets as well so they can foster their own testimonies and know for themselves that what they hear is true. What a great time to be living. What a great time to be raising children. Scary, but great. And there is no greater safety net that I’d prefer my children have than to be able to recognize and understand the Spirit in their lives.

Okay, well so much for keeping this short. But just a reminder that General Conference is on April 6th and 7th this year and if you’d like more ideas for things you can do to make this a special time for your family, check out my older conference posts HERE that have links to TONS AND TONS of ideas and other packets as well. (And P.S. one of the beauties of this packet is it’s not specific to any year or season… so you can use it over and over… or at least until your kids have all the answers memorized :) )

If you are not LDS, but would like to know what in the world we are all so excited about, feel free to listen/watch as well! You can watch the LDS General Conference online by clicking HERE on Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th at 10 AM and 2 PM on each day (Mountain Standard Time). (That’s 11 AM and 3 PM for us Texans… :) )

Best Wishes to you all, and as always Keep Prepping!

  1. Thank-you so much for these WONDERFUL packets! My kids did great during conference today and said this was the best year yet because there was so much for them to do. I used a combination of your packets (minus the poking because they were working on hard desks) and the flower garden from a few sessions back (still one of our family favorites). You are truly amazing for doing this!

  2. Hi Teresa! I’m so glad they enjoyed them! (And the flower garden too!) :) Ya… the poking can be tricky depending on your work surface. My girls were working on a little play card table, which they definitely COULD have poked on, but then I would have had holes all through our card table! :) So I just kept their poking pins in a separate area over by the carpet, and when they were ready to poke a page they would go over to that area and poke on the carpet. Just one more thing to do to keep them occupied. :)

  3. Just wanted to thank you for creating the best conference packets ever. Our kids ages 10 to 2, all used them, and they kept them occupied for all 4 sessions. (BIG DEAL!) We have used others before, without such grand success! Thank you for sharing your creations with us, I was able to get so much more out of conference thanks to your generosity!

  4. Emily, I am so glad to know they were a success. That right there is the best reward for me. My four year old still struggled to stay on task, but I have dreams that some conference soon she will catch on and Hubby and I can enjoy more of Conference ourselves. :) But I admit that this time around was a huge improvement over previous attempts and I was truly thankful to catch some peaceful moments. Conference is so wonderful and good for the soul. :) Best Wishes! Debbie

  5. Thank you for sharing your talent with us! I know my girls will enjoy it this coming weekend. I just have a question, what font did you use?

  6. You are welcome! :) I hope it works out for you. The fonts I used are Century Gothic, AdamGorry-lights (the big letters), and SpeedballNo3 (the main font used). Enjoy!
