General Conference is one of my favorite times of the year. I absolutely love gathering my notebook, snacks along with my favorite blanket. Armed with my essentials I was all set to sit down and listen to all of the council that has been prepared. That was before I had kids, it was that easy.
Now my tots want to participate but they also want to run and play. In April I had a great game plan for the hours of conference. Check it out here because it worked wonders with my little’s.
I enjoyed the variety of activities that we did but I felt that we could get to know these incredible men a bit more. If you are a regular reader you know that we love our theme based weeks. When I was planning for September the obvious answer was to include a more religious week. Not a week similar to religious holidays but more like a study based on our families religious leaders. I wrote a list of facts based on each of the members of the First Presidency and the twelve Apostles. You can check out that list to make you own plan or you can join our study.
Here is what you will need to follow along with our week:
- Pictures of the Firsts Presidency and Apostles
- Fishing game
- Toy Airplanes
- Cotton Balls or Pom Poms
- Blue Sensory Base
- Watercolor Paint and paper
- Mr Potato Head
- Painters tape
- Sheep Figurines
- Sport Equipment of Choice (Baseball, Soccer Ball, Basketball, etc)
- Favorite Bread Recipe
- Farmland Math
Look for my workbox post to see exactly what we have planned for each of the apostles.
