General Conference Snack Mix
General conference weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. A weekend set aside to receive inspired talks and messages from the leaders of our church, a time to spend time with family, and a time to feel renewed. Years ago, when I was a younger mom with more energy, I would go all out making the kids general conference kits for each session. Sometimes I’d do a conference store and other times I’d print out conference bingo and other fun games. Lately it’s been more of “grab a notebook, a package of crayons, and some microwave popcorn.” It’s all about balance, right?
This snack mix activity was inspired by an idea shared in the Friend magazine years ago, and is so easy to put together. Clean out the pantry or make a quick trip to the store for some fun add-ins for your conference snack mix!
Free General Conference Snack Mix Printable
General conference snack mix is made by listening to the talks and adding a spoonful of snacks, into a bowl, every time a speaker mentions one of the topics on the printable!
For example: If the topic “Jesus Christ” is assigned to “pretzels”, the kids can add a few pretzels to their bowl every time a speaker talks about Jesus Christ.
I like setting out a divided tray or a bunch of bowls on the coffee table filled with the snack mix add-ins. I also give each child their own small bowl, but you can also work together to make a large bowl of snack mix.
I created a printable with 12 different topics. 6 for the Saturday session of conference and 6 for the Sunday session. There are blank spaces next to each topic. Fill those spaces in with a variety of snacks that you have in your pantry.
Don’t worry about having 12 different snacks or even 6 different ones. You can totally double up.
