General Conference Excitement

General Conference is this weekend!  Not only do I love Conference, I love that my kiddos love Conference.  When they were younger, we tried to help them focus and not get bored by having them color pictures of who was talking or what that person was talking about.  We had the older kiddos take notes of what each speaker talked about.  That worked for us.

Since them some clever people have made it easier on us by putting together coloring sheets and activity pages.  We have a couple of activities we’ve added to our weekend to make it extra special.  In the mornings we have bingo sheets.  We place an M&M on the words we hear.  When we get a bingo, we eat an M&M and start over.  Our afternoon game is similar, we have a list of words with corresponding snacks.  Whenever we hear one of the words, we get the snack.  One year there was a great talk about love that about drained our cup of M&M’s!

I also like to have special breakfasts on Conference days.  This is a busy week, so I’m keeping the plans simple unless one of the older kiddos has time to do some baking.

I know that’s a lot of food, but we really like food around here.  I’m willing to enjoy yummy food to help build an atmosphere of excitement about conference. What do you do to make Conference special?
