Today we are getting ready for this big weekend. General Conference and Easter. Our kids love the traditions we have for conference. We are starting a new one this year: everything starts with "C".
The kids' "Conference Clipboards". I just took a picture of them (the head dress is a pillowcase from Goodwill) & turned it black and white. Then I copied the picture of Jesus (picture 3-57: Jesus blessing Nephite children) onto cardstock. I just cut along the outside edge of his body. I covered up the bottom right corner with scrapbook paper and covered the whole clipboard(bought at dollar store) with contact paper.
The kids' "Conference Journals". I just got these simple notebooks at the Dollar store. They were already decorated, I just added the paper title on the front. I even made one for me, I'm so excited to use mine. This is going to be such a keepsake!
Inside is a "checklist" and a page for them to write their thoughts and feelings before conference starts. Then the following pages they can write who the speaker is, key points of their talk, any impressions that come to their mind and room for drawing a picture. When this weekend is over there is still enough room to put more tabs for the future Conferences.
Since this is all about our Savior this weekend, this project came to my mind. This will be a great centerpiece.
1-Cut board (9"x12") and letter "C".
2-Copy the picture onto a piece of cardstock (picture came from Ensign Feb 2010). Trace around the wooden letter with a pencil.
3-Exacto knife it out.
4-Erase pencil marks.
5-Mod podge pictures on the base board and the wooden letter.
6-Glue the "c" onto the base board. Finish it with a clear poly spray.
I love how it turned out and the wonderful thing is that you could do this for any picture you wanted to highlight something!
Since it's all about the letter "C", the food is included in that as well. Here is our menu plan for the next 2 days:
Saturday: Crepes with Canadian Bacon and Cheese / Cranberry Juice
Sunday: Cinnamon Rolls / Hot Cocoa / Cheerio Cereal
