It’s HERE! After several requests, we came up with a Conference Kit in our NEW “Leader Reader” format. It rolls like a Powerpoint and creates lots of family engagement!
THIS CONFERENCE KIT IS PERFECT IF…
You are a parent wanting a super fresh and very unique way for your family to PREP for Conference… If you are a Primary leader or teacher and want to email your ward family or Primary class a way to get ready for Conference… If you are married to a member of the Bishopric and they are looking for good ways to connect and get your ward excited for Conference!
It’s a BEFORE Conference kit and it has printables coming soon that help your family DURING Conference!
After working on the #Hallelujah, Christ-centered Easter campaign I decided to change things up at our house this year. We skipped baskets and bunnies and enjoyed a mellow, scripture-filled holiday (thanks to all the hard work and printables from our #hallelujah kit makers). I can’t believe it took me 16 years of motherhood and 6 kids to figure out what a real Easter feels like.
It wasn’t perfect. My kids missed the candy and there was some definite whining when they heard what all their friends got in their baskets. But there were also sweet moments, like hearing my 7 year old tell me he knew all the answers in Sunday School because we had just talked about the Easter story at breakfast. It felt sweet and simple and right for us.
All that being said, I’m a fun mom at heart. I still love the crazy Easter traditions and games we used to do. Luckily General Conference is coming up next so I’ve decided to shift some of the family fun over. That way we get a nice, sacred Easter and the kids will have even more reason to look forward to conference weekend…as if staying in your PJs all day and jumbo cinnamon rolls weren’t enough.
I jumped on Pinterest today to try to gather up some fun mom inspiration for conference weekend and I found tons of great ideas. For example, I thought this idea of pitching a tent in the living room (King Benjamin-style) would be awesome for my little kids.
My teenagers are a little harder to impress but I thought this final-four-style bracket idea would really win them over…especially if the prize involves extra treats and bragging rights.
There were so many great ideas and printable activity sheets out there in the blogosphere. If you’re looking to add a little fun to you family’s conference you should click over and start pinning away. You can find (and follow) the board by following this link.
Have a wonderful week everyone. I hope your conference weekend is full of fun, learning and a heaping helping of delicious food!
