My daughter was extremely excited to watch General Conference this year. I was so proud of her for desperately wanting to see our prophet and apostles speak. (Or so I thought… she told me later she liked conference because of all the treats. At least she’s honest. I always enjoy the yummy treats, too.)
In order to keep Boo’s interest in watching all 4 sessions of conference, and since Easter was around the corner, I came up with this idea:
Conference Easter Egg Hunt
Supplies: 15 plastic easter eggs, 15 small prizes or treats ( I would make 1 set for each of your children- so if you have 2 kids use 30 eggs, etc)
- Print mini pictures (or cut up an old Ensign) of the 12 apostles and first presidency.
- Tape pics to plastic eggs.
- Fill eggs with prizes or treats.
- Hide eggs. Make sure you hide them in the area that you will be watching conference…. you don’t want to kids to leave the room. That sort of defeats the purpose :). Or you can be lazy like me and instead of hiding the eggs just toss them all in a basket.
- When an apostle or member of the first presidency speaks, have your little one search for the egg with his picture. Great way to learn the names of our church leaders.
Extension: Write simple summaries of each of the talks. Place each of the summaries inside the conference plastic egg with the church leader’s picture. During family home evening, have each of your children pick an egg. Read and discuss the summary. If possible set goals as a family to apply those teachings.
This is a great idea. I really like using it for Family Home Evening. Thank you for sharing.
I am sooo excited to do this!!!
I love this idea. Did it last general conference with my two year old and she loved it. I recently started a blog and added this idea. Thanks for sharing.
Great idea! Perfect for this year where Easter and Conference land on the same day
