9 Weeks till General Conference Countdown: Week 2: Balloon Countdown

It is Week 2 of my General Conference Countdown and today I’m excited to share another fun idea that you can do with your family before Conference.

 

WEEK 2: BALLOON COUNTDOWN

 

To make balloon countdown:

Purchase fifteen balloons. Place a folded-up apostle fact found at…

  • September 2014 Special Witness Cards: https://www.lds.org/friend/2014/09/special-witness-cards?lang=eng
  • New apostles: https://www.lds.org/friend/2015/11/conference-news.p1?lang=eng

And place a daily activity in each balloon. Write numbers 1 to 15 on the balloons. Blow up a balloon each night to prepare for the next day. In the morning, pop the balloon to learn about one of the apostles. Do one of the suggested activities as a family. Click on the link below to download and print the FREE PRINTABLE.

15 Family activities for Conference Countdown (1) (pdf)

{The pdf includes both countdowns for family and adults}

FYI: This countdown is a tiny bit different (frame) than the one in our ebook, Growing up with Conference. But, all of the ideas are the same.

This idea and other countdowns are also in our ebook titled, Growing up with Conference. Our book is filled with ideas to make General Conference fun year-round. It includes crafts, recipes, FHE lessons and more. You can order yours TODAY at AMAZON or Books & Things for only $3.99. I know you will find some fun ideas in our book that will help you learn, listen and live General Conference throughout the year.

How are you getting ready for General Conference? It will be here before you know it so prepare now. I have always loved General Conference and I know these ideas will help your family get in the spirit of the messages we will hear. I can’t wait!!!
