Conference Time Activities for Kids

Conference is coming soon. HERE is a cute CONFERENCE BINGO game that kids will enjoy.


 You could do a neat singing time next week on all the primary songs about temples and then do a little quiz about how many temples were announced and where they are being built


Here is the Provo City temple getting a cool remodeling! You could do some temple songs for singing time!

New temples are usually announced during conference sometime. It will be fun to see what is planned!Link HERE to a great lesson with a temple mobile on the importance of temples by Robert D. Hales. It is short and easy to see how you could use it as a little lesson to do with singing time and temples.

I'd use temple pictures from the library each with a song on the back having to do with temples.

The Lord Gave Me a Temple #153
Families Can Be Together Forever #188
I Love to See The Temple #95
The Hearts of the Children #92, 93
This is God's House #30
Truth from Elijah #90, 91
Temples singing Time
A cute coloring page for the song is HERE.  You could pass this out at the end of singing time for kids to take home and color. br />



 You could show them a conference Bingo card and maybe do a few of the squares linking them to a song with that word in it as you sing a range of songs. Have 2 colors of bingo chips (red for girls, blue for boys) and have a little competition throughout the 20 minutes of singing time to see how many words kids can hear and raise their hand to go cover with the "chips" which could just be colored circles of paper.

Here is Conference Bingo

Another song by Steven Perry and words by Brad Wilcox and it's HERE copied from The Friend Magazine. Here is the first verse....



1. Of all the Sundays of the year,
the ones I love the best
are conf’rence Sundays twice a year,
so diff’rent from the rest.
I gather with my family
and feel the Spirit near
as I prepare to understand
the messages I hear.

Sing President Monson's favorite Primary Song, "Give Said the Little Stream". 
One bunch is from the church website. The link is HERE at LDS.org. There is a Bingo game for words that you hear in talks, a bunch of coloring pages, and some journaling pages to write in and color.

You could also sing one of President Monson's favorite Primary songs! In his autobiography he said that he enjoyed singing "Give Said the Little Stream". That's one even the sunbeams can sing!
Here is some additional verses to the song that were written by Kimball Brown. 



Give Said the Little Stream
Additional lyrics: Kimball Brown
Lead: Ben Haacke

Give said the little stream
Give, oh give
Give, oh give
Give said the little stream
As it hurried down the hill
I'm small I know but wherever I go
The grass grows greener still
Give said the little rain
Give, oh give
Give, oh give
Give said the little rain
As it fell upon the flowers
I'll raise their weary heads again
As it fell upon the flowers
Singing, singing all the day
Give away, oh give away
Singing, singing all the day
Give, oh give away

The Sunday before General Conference is a great time to do President Monson's favorite Primary song! 

Give what is in your heart
Give away, Give away
Give what is in your heart
And your heart will ever live
Laugh when you're filled with joy
Laugh away, laugh away
Laugh when you're filled with joy
For laughing's giving too
Snap!
Tap!
Clap!
Give all you've got to give
Give away, give away
Give all you've got to give
Sing when your heart is full
Sing away, sing away
Sing when your heart is full
For singing's giving too


Another packet can be printed out from Sugardoodle. The link is HERE at Sugardoodle.

Lots of activities can be found at Sugardoodle website for General Conference. 

A cute activity for elementary age kids would be this one. They listen to the talks with you, then color the sections of the fall pumpkins that have that word written that they just heard in a talk. It helps them to get something from conference by listening to the speakers with a little more attention! What an excellent idea from A Little Tipsy's website
I'm looking forward to General Conference tomorrow! I wish I had tickets. I'll just have to watch it in my jammies all snug by the fire. :D
