I told myself that I would take a break and catch-up on Come Follow Me, instead of doing anything for conference. But, I couldn't help myself. I had one idea that I really want to do with my family, so I thought I would share.
When I was a Head start teacher, when ever we would read a book, I would add a circle to a caterpillar, or a box to a train. After we read so many books the train or caterpillar would wrap around the whole room. I usually did this at the top of the wall, next to the ceiling. The children would get so excited when they saw how long it was getting.
So I incorporated this into General Conference.
Cut on the dotted lines so they can link arms with each other, then tape.
I even made a blank one for the people that speak who are not members of the 12. You can draw in their faces and write in the names and continue to make your snake (train, caterpillar) longer. By the end of the Sunday afternoon session, you should have a very long snake, made up of the speakers from conference. I will take plenty of pictures, I think it's going to be so fun!
For a sister:
The kids had so much fun with this. They got excited when the "train" got taller then them. Then when it got taller then Dad.
There were times when they lost interest and I had to add the Apostle to the train, but when it got close to the end they were getting really excited with how long it was getting, and did the rest themselves.
Here it is all finished. They are so proud.
Here are some recycled activities from past CFM that are conference friendly.
Here is a link within my blog. There is a matching game with the Apostles, after you make a match you can read from the "info cards" about that Prophet/Apostle.
That's all I've got, but hopefully I can add more to this every 6 months. There are some pretty fun resource out there that make these "conference days" so fun.
