Toddler General Conference Activities – Pipe Cleaners in a tall container
Get a tall container with a lid that your toddler can remove. Pringles cans work well, but so do a lot of containers. Use a hole punch to punch holes in the lid all the way around. Now, put the lid on the container and give it to your toddler along with some pipe cleaners. The idea is to push the pipe cleaners through the holes.
For more durable pipe cleaners, fold the pipe cleaner in half and twist it all up.

Preschool General Conference Activities – Word Hunt worksheets
Little Bear has been doing some great sight word search worksheets that I found from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I decided to make my own word hunt worksheets that have a General Conference theme. Don’t be discouraged by the big words. Little Bear is only 4 and as far as I know cannot actually read any of these words. He is getting really good at recognizing and matching words though, which is all he needs to do this activity.
At the top of each of the General Conference word hunt worksheets, there is a word. Look at that word, then try to find all the rest of that word on the rest of the worksheet. There are two worksheets per page so be sure to cut the worksheets apart before giving them to your preschooler. You can have your child use a crayon, a marker, or a do-a-dot marker to mark the words. If you want, you could even have them mark the word with a Cheerio, M&M, or a dried bean. Be creative! :)
