This morning our 6 year old daughter Gracie was whining and complaining because she didn’t want to watch General Conference and my wife, Rachel didn’t want the kids just playing in the toy room and fighting the whole time. Gracie was getting pretty dramatic about it. Just before it started the doorbell rang. It was a beehive girl in the ward. She dropped off 3 packets that had a conference activity book, bingo game, and a pack of M&M’s. It was seriously so cool! There was a little note from the Beehive group saying “we hope you enjoy general conference.” I was not only impressed that they did the project but they were out delivering them in cold, windy, snowy weather. Seriously, it was really cool. Gracie saw them and got really excited. Our 4 year old son, Gehrig was excited too. We didn’t have a problem keeping them in the room after that. Gracie was listening for words fill up her bingo card with her M&M and Gehrig was coloring in his workbook and drawing his favorite apostle, Elder Uchtdorf. Nolan, our 18 month old was devouring his M&Ms. Those young women really saved us! I think even Rachel really enjoyed it. There was a page for each apostle and activities to do while they were speaking. She used Nolan’s packet and followed along and made notes in it. It really was not just for kids I guess!

That is so cool! What amazing Beehives you must have in your ward.
What sweet Young Women! I love those General Conference Packets. They are life savers.
The efforts made by Beehives Group are really commendable.They not only cajoled the children to join General Conference but also persuaded the adults to participate in activities.Good job Beehives!
Truly children’s are God’s gift. Indeed they are God’s greatest gift I can say. I love their innocence. As mentioned in the above comment the beehives are doing a great job. Keep up the good work. I appreciate your efforts.
Children always get indulged wholeheartedly in the stuff they enjoy to do.I believe Beehive Group has implemented the same tactic by distributing attractive bingo games, colourful activity book and the M&M candy and coaxed them to visit General Conference.They also convinced parents to participate
in activities along with their children and made this event enormously successful.
