Looking for a fresh FREE General Conference Activity Packet for kids? You’ve come to the right place!
We love General Conference! After such a tough year, we’re looking forward to a big refresh while listening to the Prophet and other leaders of the Church.
(If you don’t know what General Conference is, you can learn more here. People of any faith/belief system are invited to listen and enjoy!)
The This Blue Dress sisters have twelve children between us so far, so we know that kids can get antsy with several hours of meetings–especially this year with so much screen time! We’re all a little screened out.
So we hope these new and free General Conference Activities will be a helpful tool in making your conference experience be amazing! We also have more tips for helping children (and you!) enjoy General Conference here.
You can download each activity individually, or scroll to the bottom for the full packet download.
*This was our first round of making this set, and my sweet 11-yr-old found some errors while he was using it during Conference today. The Gospel Word Search 2 and Apostle Word Search, Apostle Bags, and whole packet have been updated. Elder Andersen’s name is now correct in all the printables. We apologize for the errors! The packet was updated as of Saturday evening, October 3, 2020.

General Conference Tie and Blazer Coloring Activity
Our children love coloring, and this sweet coloring activity will help your young ones learn to recognize the leaders of the church. We also LOVE Mariah’s design with the amazing women who are such great examples of leadership and strength to us!
Shout out to Makayla’s mission mom Sister Franco for wearing amazing blazers in Conference! We love the colors!
General Conference Word Searches
Our kids love word searches! We designed a few different levels of word searches to enjoy–bonus if you hear the words during the session!
We’d love to make more of these for future sessions (and might even squeeze in a few more before October 2020, so please let us know in the comments if there is a specific word theme you’d love to have as an option.
General Conference Apostle Picture Notes
This cute printable has labeled squares for each of the Apostles so children can draw a picture of something they learn from each talk. Older children, teens, and adults can also use these squares to doodle or write a favorite quote!
You can choose a version with smaller squares all on one sheet or a set of bigger squares across multiple pages.
General Conference Mazes
All of our kids could do mazes for days! Each one has a gospel theme that the child can also listen for in Conference.
General Conference My Questions
Help your children prepare for General Conference by filling out or drawing pictures about the questions or topics they want to learn about during the sessions. Even young children can have beautiful and thought-provoking questions!
We like to discuss these questions during Family Home Evening the week before Conference and mark the answers we find in the app or paper versions when we study Conference.
General Conference Word Board Games
In April, my family uses Easter candy for our Bingo-style boards, and in October, we use candy corn to mark the words we hear. It’s definitely a Conference favorite, and we’re always looking for new boards.
This set has two different boards with gospel words and one with gospel pictures for littles or children who prefer to color.
General Conference Apostle Bags
This is my family’s most requested Conference activity. I think this is our 8th Conference doing it, and I finally made updated labels specifically for the brown paper bags we use.
We fill each bag with enough treats, snacks, or prizes for the family (or at least all of the children), and each child takes a turn finding the matching bag when an Apostle speaks.
Then we tape the label near our tv to see who has spoken so far. Our children are so excited when an Apostle speaks, and they are much more familiar with their names and talks since starting this activity.
Please let us know in the comments if there is an activity that you love or would like to see here! We’ll be adding more activities for future sessions!
We’ll be sharing lots of Conference goodness on our social media accounts. We would LOVE for you to tag us in pictures of your family using our materials! #thisbluedress or #tbdConference
We hope you and your family enjoy General Conference!
