Daily Tidbits

There are enough links on the previous conference pages that I'm not updating this year. I get a lot of hits but very few comments so I don't know if people even like or use these links and I don't have time this year to update anyway. So, enjoy perusing and hopefully you can find some conference helps among the links already here

I organized the list into subject/sections and removed outdated/broken links.  All links new, new to me, or updated for April are marked with an asterisk*. Any additions or updates after today are marked with a double asterisk**. If you have new sites to offer, please let me know.

This is an awesome resource. I'll definitely be coming back to check these links out in depth when my kids are a year or two older.

My hubby made a general conference worksheet for older kids/teens/new members that might be helpful, too. It's at http://nathanrichardson.com/2012/03/general-conference-notes-worksheet/

And there are some fun discussion questions in the post that go along with the handout that helps teens listen and find patterns in Conference (like only members of the First Presidency speak more than once, etc.).

Awesome compilation of resources. Thank you for your hard work!

This list has just become my go to resource for finding conference activities for my 2 and 4 year old. Thanks to you, I found a bunch of doable, age appropriate activities even though slacker me just started thinking about all this today, the day before conference. Many, many thanks!

Wow, now THAT'S a list if I ever did see one! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Not sure where to start - my eyes are drawn to the RedHeaded Hostess link so I think I might start with that.

I also think some of the activities might be useful in non-conference settings, don't you think?
