General Conference: Ideas for Children

With the upcoming General Conference, here are some resources for children (and grandchildren) to help them learn more about the gospel and participate in the Conference Experience.

I know that when we lived outside of Utah, we made it a special family tradition to go out to eat at a restaurant between the Saturday Sessions. These outings were often Fast Food restaurants, but the children loved this. On Sunday, as we had to go to the Church building for all broadcasts (and that was a 30 minute drive), we would pack a picnic lunch. Other families in our ward saw what we were doing and soon we had lots of families doing the same. It was a "giant" picnic with our ward family and very fun for all of us.

Now that the broadcasts are so readily available to our homes via cable and satellite, we can start fun traditions at home and still reinforce the spiritual feeling and meaning of General Conference.   Make this Conference and Easter a memorable one for your family.  Special pages to color etc.
