General Conference Prep

General Conference is next weekend! We started a new tradition where we use FHE on the Monday before Conference to prepare our kids for it.

We bought 8x10's of the First Presidency and Quorum of the 12 (less than $1 each through, put them in plastic sheet protectors, took some framed art off the wall, and as part of the lesson, we reviewed each person's name and taped them all on the wall.

During the week, we briefly reviewed their names here and there. When the weekend came, we had our daughter match the face of the person on the screen with their picture on the wall and reviewed his name again. The next Monday, we did a final review and took them down. Within that week period, our 2.5 year old could name all 15 men.

We found this to be a fun way to help her learn the names of our prophets and apostles.

What ideas do you use to help your kids be engaged during General Conference?
