Note: check out my NEW round-up of 10 General Conference Activities (Printables, games, coloring pages, and more).
This weekend marks the 184th Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Every first weekend in April and October, our family joins families from all over the world to hear counsel from our prophet, apostles, and leaders of the church during four general sessions of conference – two on Saturday and two on Sunday.
We like to watch the conference live from the comfort of our home…but even though it’s easy to watch online or on cable at home, it can still be challenging to keep the kids entertained and engaged for 8 hours of instruction.
When my kids were little, I would scour the internet for General Conference activities – packets, coloring pages, games, and Conference notebooks to print off before Conference started. There was not half as much available then as there is now! I’ve collected a handful of my favorite activities and printables to share with you today.
The following ideas and images are linked to the incredibly talented people who created them. Please click over to their sites to print them (clicking on any of the images will take you to the source). If you’re pinning any of the following ideas to Pinterest, please pin from the original source, rather than my site, so they maintain the credit. Thanks for spreading the love!
LDS.org Conference Resources for Kids
LDS.org has several General Conference printables activity sheets (a Conference notebook, coloring pages, games, and more) as well as games that kids can play online.
Conference Word Search and MORE from Live Craft Eat
I love this General Conference Pinterest board from Live Craft Eat as well as their Conference Word Search printables. Live Craft Eat also has the Ultimate General Conference Guide for kids (it’s pretty amazing!)
Conference Resources for Kids from Sugardoodle
Sugardoodle is probably my favorite resource for teaching ideas, and so I knew that they’d have a great resource (or a dozen) for Conference. I love their Conference Notebook for kids. They also link to several other printables.
53 Conference Activities for Kids from LDS Living
LDS Living has divided their comprehensive list of activities for kids up into age-appropriate activities. I don’t think there’s time to do all of them in one weekend!
General Conference packet for school-age kids from Over the Big Moon
I am so impressed with this Conference packet from Over the Big Moon…and I think I have found a new blog that I will be adding to my must-read list. Love what they do!
General Conference Labels from The Mormon Home
Now that I have teens, I love that someone out there is making Conference resources for older kids (and even adults!). These printable Conference labels are PERFECT for a teen’s or adult’s Conference notes.

Make Conference fun for kids with Kiki & Company’s gorgeous printables – tons to choose from!
