Well, the Gratitude & Service Lunchbox Challenge was a good experience for our family! There were definitely a lot of “I forgot”s and “whoops, I didn’t do it”s but we kept plugging along and we did have a few awesome things come of it. One day Oldest came home and said that “charlie” had been bullying someone on the playground and made them cry. He went over to see if they were OK and then invited them to play with him. Hurray! So hey, I’m gonna chalk that up as a win. If you did the lunchbox challenge with your kids I would love to hear about it!… Read the rest

I teamed up with some of my favorite blogging pals to bring you a fantastic round up of General Conference activities! Because with little ones (and ah..hem… sometimes older ones…) sometimes we could use a little help, yeah?
- General Conference Trail Mix by Party Like a Cherry: Have your kiddos listen to buzz words and add ingredients to their very own trail mix as they listen to conference!
- Say What? General Conference Game from Little LDS Ideas: Get the whole family laughing with this version of the popular party game!
- 12 Apostles Memory Game by A Year of FHE: It always helps the kiddos stay more engaged if they can recognize some of the speakers!
Here’s a fun and free General Conference activity for small kids! All you need is a few food items that you probably already have around the house! General Conference happens every 6 months in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
When I was preparing this blog post I asked my Oldest what General Conference was. “Yeah, yeah I know what it is Mom.” “INDULGE ME, what is it?” “It’s when church is canceled and we stay home and watch the prophets on TV in our pajamas.” Yuuup, that pretty much sums it up ;).
General Conference can always be a challenge with little ones.… Read the rest
