Conference weekend is almost upon us, and (let's be honest) I'm trying to figure out how to keep the kiddos quiet and distracted so I can actually get something out of it! I found this cute idea for making bags for each apostle with a different activity inside. I didn't have time to sew anything up, but brown paper sacks work too! Not all my bags are exactly like hers, I found other ideas around pinterest and the web.
Here is what's in the bags: President Monson puzzle and coloring sheet, Lego Temple idea, LDS lacing cards, Bingo, Samuel the Lamanite worksheets, Dot to Dots, Temple Matching, Egg letter matching, play-doh, robot puzzle, Glitter glue/paint, foam stickers, sticker/coloring books, water color paints, and an activity book. Most of the ideas I found from this pinterest board. I got the paper bags, stickers, glue, paint, and activity books from the dollar store.
I'm also going to have a little basket with crayons, markers, scratch paper, Friend magazines, glue, tape, scissors etc for using with some of the bags or if there is a need for a filler activity. Plus, there will be other speakers besides these 15, so I'm sure we'll need a few extra things to do. Fingers crossed they stay quiet for at least some of the 8 hours!
