Toddler General Conference Activities – Egg Carton Beading

Beading is a great activity for toddlers and preschoolers alike. The trick is finding a beading activity that is the right developmental stage for your child. This particular activity is great for toddlers. Get an egg carton and cut out all twelve of those little cup-like pieces that hold the eggs. Next, cut a small circle hole from the bottom of them. This was fairly easy because there happened to be a circle shape already in the bottom of my egg carton pieces and I used that as a guide. The hole should be about ¼ – ½ inch across.

Toddler Activity Idea: Bead painted egg carton pieces onto a shoelace.

When everything is all cut out, paint the egg carton pieces all different colors. Get a shoelace and double or triple knot it near the bottom. You want the knot to be bigger than the holes in the egg carton pieces.

Preschool General Conference Activities – Do-a-dot Apostle Pages

I made a Do-a-dot Apostle page for each of the 15 prophets and apostles. These are the same pages that I used as Magnet Pages. Another great way to use these is with do-a-dot markers! We love do-a-dot markers (read my review here) and these dot marker pages are one my kid’s favorite General Conference activities.

Dot Marker Apostle Pages - Includes pages for all 15 prophets and apostles and it's free. Can use with do-a-dot markers, magnets, or stickers!

To use these, just have your preschooler dab the circles with dot markers.

If you don’t have do-a-dot markers, never fear, you can still complete this activity in a lot of fun ways. Use cheerios (or M&Ms or popcorn or skittles or whatever) to place over the circles and allow your child to eat them once all the circles are filled. You can also have your child cover the circles with stickers or simply color them in with a crayon or marker. You could also give your child a stamp pad and have them fill in the circles with their thumbprint or fingerprint. Be creative! The more creative it is, the more likely it is to keep your child busy during an entire General Conference talk. :)
