I'm getting a jump-start on conference kits for this upcoming October General Conference because I'm sharing the concept tonight at Relief Society.
(There may have been four or five kids that asked if they could eat the sample kit when I bring it back. And Hammy lamented that conference was still 3 1/2 weeks away.)
All kits have coloring pages from LDS.org from past Friend magazines.
These conference kits will have snacks without food-dye to keep the hyperactivity at a minimum. These treats are something they rarely get, with the exception of the granola bar, and they'll be excited about them.
Those interested will have the conference bingo and Cheerios for markers. I've added pipe cleaners so they can make a Cheerios bracelet if they so please.
Each kit will have a pack of new crayons for the oldest six kids. And the little girls will get 8 crayons (since they think it's fun to snap them in half if they feel they have extras).
I decided to add a quote to the front of the composition book and cover them with paper (if the child prefers that). The oldest four kids will have journals.
If I can get my printer to cooperate, I'm going to print out more tabs to add throughout the journal.
