I have a friend who displays pictures of the First Presidency and the apostles in the few weeks before conference every year. I stole the idea from her, and I hope it will help my kids be more interested in conference when it comes around. It is already working—my two-year-old has already chosen her personal favorite "bishop," Elder Anderson.
To get my five-year-old son more interested, I printed out a picture of the apostles in order and gave it to him. He got to put the pictures up on the wall in the right order.
Yesterday the kids each chose an apostle from the wall, and we used the information on the back to learn a few things about them. Tonight for Family Home Evening, we will each teach about an apostle, and we will learn a little bit about their titles (President/Elder) and about the organization of our church leadership.
If we do it again next week, we'll have covered 8 of the 15. Guess I need to get the pictures up a little earlier next conference!
