Each conference weekend, our goal is to try to get the kids to do something that gets them excited about what's going on, and maybe even pay attention a little. This time around, I think we found what works for our family. I guess we'll see if it works again in 6 months.
We talked about the apostles and prophets in FHE the week before and talked about why we have conference.
Then, I made cards for the 15 brethren. During their talks, the kids had to listen a little bit to figure out what they might be talking about. If they find something, they put the picture under the topic card. Then, we get to do an activity. We had memory, coloring pages, snacks, etc.
We also set up the tents Zakie & Krystal got them for Christmas last year--- you know, King Benjamin style. Daddy even got in. :)
All in all, it didn't seem like this huge fight this time around. AND, half way through the weekend, we got a new visitor.
Now, we've got a fun week ahead with Mema!
