Make General Conference Meaningful for Children

Prior to General Conference you can make a "General Conference Watching Kit" for children to use to enjoy conference. Below are some supplies I made to put it such a kit. These things are not intended to merely "entertain" children so older family members can watch in peace, but they are intended to help make conference meaningful to children. Below are pictures of each item. You can click on the titles to see a larger version or to print them. Only use those things that will be meaningful to children in your family.

General Conference Booklet for Taking Notes There is also a girl version.

General Conference Spotlight

Print on cardstock and laminate. Cut out general authorities and tape them to their seats. As children watch conference, they can take the general authority from his seat and put him up at the pulpit. Or here is a different version of it.

Flash cards for memorizing General Authorities. Print this off on cardstock and then print this page on the back side so their names end up being on the backs of the pictures (or just write them on the backs.

Bingo Cards. Use beans or candies to place on each topic as it is mentioned by a conference speaker. If several children play, a different card is needed for each one. Here are more versions: Version 2 version 3 version 4.

You can also purchase a poster of the general authorities from the church distribution center (or photo copy the centerfold from the last May Ensign) and use their pictures for the General Conference Spotlight activity. There is a fun song to sing for memorizing the names of the first presidency and 12 apostles on youtube. But more important is to help children know how to listen with the Spirit so that the messages for them can go deep in their hearts. Last General Conference there was a booklet on to helped children learn by the Spirit. I liked the descriptions in that booklet. The booklet above, "My Conference Report," is a condensed version of this one, but repeats the same basic messages. has a page of activities for children, I just noticed, and the booklet from last conference is there.


  1. I really like your Conference kits...unfortunately for me, Conference doesn't seem the same without m&ms for bingo. :)

  2. I guess you noticed the pinto beans in the picture with the bingo cards. M&M's still work, but they didn't last for 4 sessions like pinto beans do.
