General Conference Activities for Activity Bags

I made General Conference bags and put together activities to go inside each bag. If you missed the post on how I made the bags, you can go here to catch that tutorial.
I made puff paint by using 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, and 1/2 water mixed it, added food coloring and then poured into these Wilton plastic bottles. I bought the bottles at Wal-Mart for $2.00 for a 2/pk. Each batch fit in the bottles perfectly.
I made these felt fish a few years ago for my little guy and he still loves them. I have a mini blow up pool we will have ready for the fish to go in the "pond".
Mr. and Mrs. Potato head. I am pretty sure these will be a big hit.
Book of Mormon paper dolls. When I saw the printable here, I knew it would be perfect for one of our activities.
Temple lacing card. Printable found here.
Color by number printables found here. I was going to make homemade watercolor paints, but I have quite a few already, so once those are used I will make some. If you are interested in making watercolor paints of your own you can find the how to here.
Just like "Don't Eat Pete" - Printable found here.
Temple matching game.
For this one I just grabbed some of our dot markers and some art paper.
I made homemade play dough and then found these play dough mats and made them smaller so they would fit into the bag.
Apostle match game found here. I made two sets, the first set I made the two-sided cards which I used for the tic-tac-toe game and the second set for this matching game, but left the backs blank. Tic-Tac-Toe Apostle style. When I was at Hobby Lobby buying felt to make the bags, Jaden wanted me to buy the dinosaur felt and asked me to make him something with it. So I came up with this tic-tac-toe. It's played just like tic-tac-toe, we will throw the bean bag on an Apostle card taking turns until someone gets three in a row. There is information on the back of each card that we can learn more about the Apostle while playing if Jaden chooses to do so. This foam kit I had on hand. It is a jungle picture frame. Anything foam would work.
I gathered some Popsicle sticks and glue and I will let creativity begin.
President Monson puzzle found here.
All of the activities in each bag ready for General Conference to begin. If you don't have the same things on hand that I did, search around your house, you may be surprised with what you have and what you can come up with to put inside the bag.

  5. Someone else suggested I check out this page and I have to admit that your creativity is very impressive. You have some really cute ideas that are fun to see. But, I don't plan to go to this much work for Conference, as I lean more towards the opinion that it's more important to help my children learn to listen than it is to entertain them to the hilt. But, kudos on the creativity. I may use one or two of these ideas for my Primary class down the road, so I appreciate your willingness to share.
