1. CONFERENCE BUCKETS and PACKETS
I try to add something new each conference session. Last year I bought yellow buckets from the dollar store so that we could easily put treats, conference book,crayons and trash in them. I like to bind the books so that after conference is over, the girls (and the hubby)can take it to church and use as a coloring book. It also helps so there are not tons of paper scattered all over. I usually find my books at Sugar Doodle. There are several links on that site and I just print the pages I like most.
2. KING BENJAMIN TENTS
Another tradition we have is that each Friday night before conference we build a tent for the girls to sleep in like the people of King Benjamin. The girls love the tent and usually stay there most of conference.
3. COINS FOR CONFERENCE
4. QUIET AS A MOUSE
5. CTR APOSTLE
This year I also created an "ACTIVITY CENTER" of activities the girls can do if they are having a hard time listening. Two hours is a long time to be quiet for anyone especially children. These are different things that I have made over the years for General Conference. There are homemade puzzles made out of LDS pictures and glued on to card stock and then laminated, lacing cards, stencils, Apostle matching game (I printed pictures and mod podged the picture on a piece of quarter inch masonite wood. You could also laminate picture.) Each year we try to add new activities, but I also try to keep it simple so that they are not so distracted with activities that they forget to listen.
